Hi and welcome to the ILWS mini catalogue blog hop. Today 56 demonstrators from all around the UK have come together via the internet to bring you a wealth of inspiration from the fantastic new Spring/Summer 2011 mini catalogue.
If you have already had a bit of a hop then you probably would have arrived here from Kim's blog. Gorgeous cards!
Or maybe you have just arrived onto the blog hop, in which case you are going to want to grab a drink because you could be hopping around for a while!
One of my favourite things in the catalogue is the Springtime Vintage Suite which has co-ordinating designer paper, yummy ribbon, buttons, glitter and a beautiful stamp set.
My projects today are using that stamp set - Baby Blossoms. Think old fashioned summer tea parties in the garden, pretty fabric bunting moving gently in the breeze, yummy cupcakes on the table. These are the images that came to mind when I first saw this suite.
I then decided to have a play at stamping on a mirror that I have had for ages. It is only a cheapy from Ikea but I really like the effect and will have to play some more.
Of course I had to add some of the pretty pearls to finish it off.
I hope that you enjoyed my creations today, it is now time to take a look at the wonderful project on Jo D's blog. While you are there take a further look around as her blog is amazing. She is such an inspiration and the template for the box that I have made today is actually one of Jo's as well and can be found here.
The blog hop has been split into 4 groups to make it easier to hope around...I have listed the links below.
