Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop – Holiday Catalog

Have we got a fun hop of cards today for our Create with Connie and Mary blog hop!

Our theme is the new Holiday Catalog.

Where do I begin??? This year it’s just FABULOUS!!

A favorite of mine is the Pizza Boxes. They are coated to be food safe, but hold cards equally as well. So that was my starting point for these –

The Painted Harvest is next on my favorites so far which I combined with the Merry Cafe to create 4 3×3 little cards. Another new thing is 3×3 mini envelopes! (They are under the cards in the picture.)

libbystamps, stampin up, Painted Harvest, Merry Cafe, Mini Pizza Boxes, Whisper White 3x3 Envelopes, Everyday Label Punch, CCMCI used the flower center and a partial leaf to create the little pumpkin here.

Here, I created the pooling water look with the fern stamp and three inks, Black Memento, Basic Grey and Smokey Slate.

Thinking out of the box here by using the two acorns pieces, opposite, I created the holiday glasses.

Did you notice the ‘ticket corner’ looking punched corners on all the cards? I used the new Everyday Label Punch to create them. Just insert them from the top of the punch using the edge as a guideline.

We all have our favorites and products we gravitate too. See what the other Design Team members created –
