Spring Mini Catalogue

I am in love with this catalogue......I had such fun yesterday making some samples to show at last night's class. The vintage look and colours are so not in my colour palette ( I am a jewelled winter which means all the deep purples, green, black and white are so me) but I am so drawn to the mustards and browns to theme up with the stamp sets and accessories we have. No pink and purple for a while me thinks!!!

Here is one of my samples. A decorated journal

All the products used came from the Spring Mini or main Catalogue. (there may be something you don't recognise but all will be revealed after the 24th of January....

I have used a Stampin' Up! journal 6x6 and distressed so saffron and more mustard cardstock with the distressing tool and daubered the edges with crumb cake and early espresso ink. I have used the new spiced cake dsp and again distressed the edges with tearing and daubering. The circle in the centre comes from the circles 2# die and the sentiments from Your a Gem and something that will have to stay secret for a bit longer...I have used more mustard scallop dots ribbon, velvet ribbon from the spring mini, victoria crochet trim and very vaniila seam binding ribbon. Accessories come in the form of large buttons and a key charm from the mini and pearls from the main calatlogue. Ah nearly forgot I also used crystal effects on the "Love" and coloured in the small hearts with the real red marker pen.

I would love to know what you think of the journal?
