Welcome to the ESAD Summer Mini Blog Hop!

Hi!

Welcome to my blog if this is your first visit! If you are following the blog hop you should have arrived here from http://pinkflowersandbling.typepad.com/

Here are the two projects I have made using items from the Summer Mini catalogue. The first project uses the Scissor Circle Plus, which is a fantastic tool for cutting or drawing circles of varying sizes. It is so easy to use. Having just seen New Moon I decided to go for a Twilight theme on this project so I have used Twilight sounding Ghiradhelli chocolates wrapped up inside this cute pouch made by cutting a circle from using the Scissor Circle Plus.


.

Recipe: All materials from Stampin' Up! Basic Grey cardstock, Scissor Circle Plus, Versamark, silver embossing powder,Baroque Motifs stamp set, bone folder, Riding Hood Red tafetta ribbon. If you are local I am having a Summer Mini catalogue launch on Sunday December 13 at 2pm

where you will get to make one of these pouches. Please contact me if you are interested.



The next project uses the Wagon Full of Fun set and the scallop edge note cards - also new in the Summer mini. I have coloured these images onto watercolour paper using my aquapainter and Watercolour Wonder Crayons - too easy! I really love the cupcake - I actually bought the set just for that image lol! The scallop edge note cards come with very vanilla envelopes.

So, that is it from me. I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog. The next blog you need to visit is


Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog and you will go into the draw to win some lovely Stampin' Up! goodies!

Take care
