I love the holidays but I have to say that this year I was wiped out by the time they ended. We did a lot of traveling to different places, a lot of cooking and preparing, and lot of being with family (which was the best part)! We went to go visit with my youngest son and when we left his house, we took Emory home with us for five days. When she was visiting we also had Madelyn and Nolan here so they could all play together. We went to a trampoline park, shopping, walking, and lots of playing games. We really had a great time but I was exhausted by the time it was over. I am definitely out of practice!
Around The Bend is another great product in the January – June Mini Catalog that is now available to purchase. It is a fun stamp set that has a lot of curves, great sentiments and some added flowers and leaves. I love the curves. The dies, which are also called Around The Bend are the stars of this bundle. The second I saw them, I knew I had to have them. There are stitched curves and curves with leaves and bubbles. There is a scalloped curve plus there are some great leaf and flower dies.
To make this card, I first added a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper to a Basic White card base. This DSP is gorgeous! It has the most beauitful colors that are soft and go so well together. Is is one of the products you can get free with a qualifying order during Sale-a-bration. Then I cut out a 3.75″ x 4″ piece of Basic White card stock using the die that cuts a curve but also has leaves attached to it. You can see how it cuts if you look at my card. The white leaves are part of this die. Next, I cut out all the flowers and leaves in Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue and Pool Party card stock and layered them along the curve. I stamped sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink and cut it out using a die from the set called Mini Pocket Envelope. Lastly, I added some Glossy Dots.
Remember, it is also Sale-a-bration time so if you order the Around The Bend bundle you can save 10% PLUS you can choose something free from the Sale-a-bration Catalog!
