Occasions Mini is here!!!

Hi everyone!

January is here and that means the Occasions Mini is also here!  It's packed with great stuff; I'm having a blast playing with my new stuff.  I also can't wait to show you guys how to use the products at a workshop/home party.  There's a really great sewing line, botanical line, vintage floral line, etc.  I could go on, but it would take forever.  Contact me to get your hands on a real copy or check out the PDF from my sidebar here or from my website

Here is a card I made using some really innovative new products in the mini.

The sentiment (and matching sentiment inside, which you can't see) is from the set called "Create-a-Cupcake".  The cupcake in the circle is actually not a stamp! It's a .... PUNCH! Gotta love this punch - it makes the cupcake base, frosted top, a cherry and a candle! To decorate the top of the cupcake, I used a heart from a different punch this time though. The sprinkles are from a little stamp that is also party of the Create-a-Cupcake set.  I love that you could make any colour sprinkles you want, or even stamp multiple times in different colours for the multicoloured sprinkles!

It's a really versatile and easy way to make embellishments.  If you want to see it in action - book a workshop with me & you'll get to play with lots of my goodies! 

The patterned paper is not from the mini, but it is still current and you can find it in the big catalogue (Sweet and Sour DSP).  The ribbon is (unfortunately) retired, but I couldn't resist using it because of the polkadots! 
Hope you like :)
