Happy 2018!

Hello Stampers! Happy New Year!  Can't believe it's already 2018. I definitely have some crafty goals for the new year, definitely creating more and sharing more.  If you're new to my blog, welcome!  I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator since 2010. This was the second time I had signed up to be demo and I still love it! I've been a part of Di's Country INKers since 2010 and she is an amazing leader.  Every month, we have a different blog hop theme and this month, the theme is new items from the 2018 Occasions Catalog or the 2018 Sale-a-Bration catalog.

For my creations today, I'm featuring the Picture Perfect 6x6 Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog.  Before you continue scrolling down to see the images, let me just share that my creations for the blog hop this month are simple.  I share that because sometimes, as a demo, I think that all my creations should be perfect and so detailed and sometimes that stresses me out. Which really, that doesn't matter, as long as you took the time to create something and share with it others, that's all that matters.  So, since I'm always needing birthday cards, I decided to make simple cards, and showcase the paper, which this DSP is perfect for.

The sentiment for this card above is from the Stamp Set Beautiful Day. I'll showcase another card with that set later.

The coordinating colors of the DSP are Basic Black, Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party and Whisper White.

Isn't this card yummy!  Gotta love those sugar cookies and zero calories!  This sentiment is from the Lemon Zest stamp set. Love the photo and made it my focal point.

I instead decorated the inside of my card. I used the thick Whisper White cardstock as my base which works perfect for making several greeting cards.

Up next is my amazing friend Ellie! Can't wait to see what she creates!

If you get lost, don't worry, below are all the links to our blogs!  Stop by and share the love.

Wishing you all the best for 2018!  May have a very crafty year. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. A really good idea to completely show how versatile and fun this paper is! Happy new year.

  2. A fantastic bunch of cards!! I love the simple style...but sometimes as a crafter it is hard to let the paper do all the work! Then when I over do it, I end up disliking the result. This DSP is lovely on its own! Happy New Year! Lets both do more crafting and enjoying this hobby we love.

  3. OMG! Kathya these cards are amazing and showcase that DSP perfectly, and those cookies...slurp!!! I am so glad you are part of my team, we are so lucky to have you. Hugs, Di
