No Try it Tuesday today. Instead, I am here to celebrate that, a week today, Stampin’ Up!’s new annual catalogue will be launched *happy dance*.
As an Independent Demonstrator, I’ve been lucky enough to receive the catalogue early as well as purchase some items before they go live (oh, the perks of joining the fun!)
As soon as I got my hands on the Cherry on Top DSP I knew it would be perfect for my little ones’ birthdays. Ok, George will not be three till mid August and Emma won’t be one until the end of September, but there’s nothing like pre planning!
This lovely paper stack features three of the new in colours, Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe and Cucumber Crush. Being 6×6 size they are perfect for all sorts of projects and the patterns are just fabulous (sweeties, doughnuts, ice creams, cupcakes, what’s not to love!)
Flicking through it, I knew the papers would be great for invites, table treats and thank you cards so decided to have a play and make a project incorporating the latter two.
The sweetie pot was CASE’d from a Christmas project my friend and up line, Sam (of Pootles fame) did here. As the paper stack is the perfect size, there’s no cutting involved which is a great time saver!
To match the table treat I made a 3×3 thank you card. Doing them this size, you can get 4 DSP layers out of 1 sheet. You could even design the invitations the same. The added sequins were bits that were left over after trimming the tie on the sweetie bag (no wastage!).
I couldn’t leave Emma out so here is the one I designed with her in mind. She doesn’t understand sweets, or solid food much for that matter. TV controls and plastic plates are far better to chew on in her opinion.
So, what do you think, simple, easy to make, cost effective…though it may make you crave whatever is on the paper you are using afterwards!
