Stampin' Addict Spring Catalog Blog Hop



I'm back from my December hiatus just in time for the Stampin' Addict's Spring Catalog Blog Hop! (I didn't really plan to take such a long break from blogging, it just sort of happened.)  This is stop #6 on the hop.  If you're hopping in order, than you've arrived here from Rhonda's Stampin' Bunny Blog and her fabulous projects with the Secret Garden Bundle.  (She just might convince me I need that bundle too.)  If this is your first stop, no worries; all the blogs are linked together in a loop so you won't miss a thing.  (And if you happen to be looking at this post after December 30, all the posts should be deep linked so you can still follow them.)  If you do get lost or want to chat about the hop, visit Stampin' Addicts!

The Spring Catalog is full of so many fun products, it was hard to choose just one to share for the hop.  But I settled on a great little kit called the Pop Up Posies Designer Kit.  This kit comes with a nine pre-cut and embossed tags, enough precut flowers and brads to embellish them, and  a wood-mounted "Just for You" stamp, all for $12.95 US! 

This kit can be used to make quick and easy tags, cards or toppers for bags.  But I wanted to dress the kit up a bit and do some different things with it. I will be sharing more details about each of these projects on my blog next week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  So you will want to come back and see how each was made. First a card:

This card features the flowers and the tag from the kit, along with a few other fun new things in the Spring Catalog: Paper Doilies and Delicate Details Lace Tape.  The doily really adds to the texture of the card and sets the flower off nicely.  And the tape is a fabulous way to quickly and easily add some lace to a card.


For my next two projects, I wanted to think "out of the box." When I looked at those cute tags, I could see candy wrappers.  So that is exactly what I did with them:


For my last project, I was actually thinking "box".  It is something that I envisioned a few weeks before I actually had time to sit down and make it. And for once something I envisioned in my head actually worked:
Aren't those flowers so fun and fabulous?  I hope you have enjoyed these projects and will come back and find out how to make them this next week.  Now you should be off to Heidi's RunningwithScissors Blog for her take on the new stamp set By the Tide.  Happy hopping!
