November/December Catalog New Product Blog Hop

Welcome to our November/December Catalog Blog Hop!  In this hop we are showcasing many of the wonderful new products from this catalog edition!  I can't wait to see what everyone has been working on!  If you came from Lauren Moore's Blog you are on the right track.  The hop is a big circle so when you arrive at the blog you started, you will know you completed the hop! If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of hoppers HERE.

I do believe that our Serenity paper collection is going to be a HUGE hit.  I've already based my Annual Christmas Card Workshop off this paper and everyone seems to have loved them!  This paper is certainly MY favorite!  I also love the Elegant Snowflakes Stamp and Thin Cuts Set.  I knew I wanted to create something using BOTH of these products.  Here is the page I created.

One of the papers in Serenity has pinecones across the bottom and top of the page.  I cut it down to 6" and then used one of the Fancy Borders Thin Cuts on the cut edge.   Instead of having the pinecones across the bottom of the page, I used it on the left side.   I used another of the Fancy Borders Thin Cuts on White Daisy Cardstock and then stamped the twinkling snow border stamp along the edge.   I layered these onto another paper from Serenity.  The paper tearing technique on the right side of the page reveals a bit of that pretty new Mix In paper!

For accents, I cut several of the snowflakes from the stamp and thin cut set and stamped in Blue Belle and Sapphire.   On one of the snowflakes, I stamped Blue Belle in 2nd generation ink so that my Gold Embossed title would show up.  I also gold embossed a few of the tiny snowflakes onto the paper around the photo.  My final touch of course had to be Gold Stickles!

I hope you love this page as much as my daughter loved the beignets she was eating!  I love it when I have photos that go perfectly with my pages!
