Hope you are having a good start to the week. Sometimes it is just nice to sit down and create when you are inspired by something. Demonstrators got a sneak peak of the new Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up! which will go live on January 3, 2014 and one of the samples (well lots of the samples) caught my eye. I love the layout of the card so I decided to draw my inspiration from that. I started out with a base of Pool Party and stamped the amazing Dictionary stamp in Pool Party. Next, I took a piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the Chevron background stamp in Summer Starfruit on the bottom portion and added a small piece of Basic Gray cardstock. I made a small Pool Party flag and added a Glimmer Brad to the center. I retired Chit Chat rub-on completes that layer. Next, up was the animals from the retired set Fox & Friends. Finally, I tied some retired Pool Party Baker’s Twine around the top and added a delicate doily to soften the card up a bit.
