I love Stampin' Up!'s cute title for the group of products in the 2011 Occasions Mini Catalog that includes all kinds of sewing images. The group is the "Oh Sew" suite. Sweet!
Today I got my first package of the Designer Paper Set, Sweet Stitches, and went right to work on it. I wasn't sure it was something I'd like until I got my hands on it. It's got so many colors in the set and they're all bright and cheery. We need that during the gray days of winter. And, yes, we have gray days of winter here in Hawaii where I live because it's our rainy season. Need the rain because we live in a rain forest. But the gray gets to me sometimes so I have to go to the other side of the island to get a sun fix!
There are several products from the Occasions Mini Catalog in this Get Well Card. The background is from the Designer Paper Set, of course. But then there's the Pompon Trim that comes in three colors to coordinate with the paper set. That was so much fun to work with! Just a bit of Sticky Strip and the trim was on the card. The stamped image is from the Mini Catalog Level 1 Hostess Set, A Slice of Life. There are some darned cute images in that set, and I'll be sharing them with you from time to time over the four months of this Mini Catalog.
Speaking of Mini Catalogs – there is an updated list of products that have been carried over from the Holiday Mini Catalog, and the fabric fat quarters that were featured in that catalog are still available.
And speaking of fabric – there is fabric in the Occasions Mini Catalog, too! One set matches three sheets of papers from the Sweet Stitches paper set and the fabric is also called Sweet Stitches. I'm just going to have to get that sewing machine out and show off some of that before long, too!
Have a great weekend everyone! I hope you get some time to do something creative!
