Van Gogh Inspired

 While visiting my son this summer, he took me to the Van Gogh Interactive Art Exhibit. It was beyond anything I can describe, and the effects the experience left on me are lasting. This bundle was my first thought when placing my order in the New Mini Catalog. I had some ink smears on the second card, but was able to hide them with the tree and a couple extra clouds. Can you tell?

Flowering Fields Suite

 Such a fun different set of products! I was instantly drawn to the windmill. I've never had anything like it and I always love something new and different. Take a look at the short video below to see all the choices you have in this suite of Dutch inspired stamps, dies and papers. You can find this suite beginning on page 14 of your catalog. Oh, and take a look at the Flowering Rain Boots bundle on page 30. That would complement the Flowering Fields DSP.

How about a couple of samples? I've made a card copied from the cover of our catalog and some calendars which are such a fun gift. I have several family members and friends waiting for their annual calendars:)

From the New Jan. - June Mini Catalog

This video shows the New Horizons Suite. The bundle and pebbles enamel shapes are amazing! But I'm sharing with you today is the New Horizons Designer Paper. In the samples below, I've used this gorgeous scene-building paper with the Grassy Grove bundle. This awesome paper is so much fun to use with both of these bundles. Take a look at the cards that are very similar, if you change the DSP it gives a subtle difference to the background. You'll find the New Horizons beginning on page 42 and the Grassy Grove bundle on page 47 of your catalog.
