Ink, Stamp, Share January Blog Hop - Pick a Suite

Hi everyone,

Welcome to my blog. Thanks so much for popping in to see me. 

Today I am hopping with Ink, Stamp, Share and for this month our theme is Pick a Suite. What is a "suite" you may be asking! To quote Stampin' Up! suites are "Artistically designed collections which include coordinating products that work together seamlessly for a wide variety of looks and projects". So in a "suite" there are likely to be stamp sets, dies, patterned paper, ribbon, embellishments and more that all coordinate together. There are currently five suites of products available in the Annual catalogue and a further eight in the new mini. So a total of 13 to choose from. Out of all of these, as Valentine's Day is rapidly approaching, I chose to work with Sweet Talk, making a gift box and a matching card. 

I took my inspiration from page 8 of the new mini catalogue, CASEing the box in the lower right hand corner and changing up the card in the top left.

Did you notice my error on the gift box. I put the side with the paper join at the front! Ooops - if you try it don't do that!!

I'll be back really soon to show you on video how I made both these projects so please pop back to see or else, jump over to my YouTube channel and click "Subscribe" and the bell so that you will receive a notification whenever I post a new video.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed seeing my projects and will now continue hopping around the hop.  Next up is the fabulous Stacey Marsh - I can't wait to see her creation!
