Creative Inkers Occasions Mini 2015 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creative Inkers Occasions mini Catalogue Bog Hop for 2015. Just click the 'next ' button at the bottom of this post and subsequent posts to hop to the next blog. It would be great if you could leave a comment before you leave my page. If you are unsure of how to do that, click here for more information.

I just love this catalogue and after you have hopped through our blogs, if it you don't already, I just know you will love it too:)

For this blog hop I have made a diary cover. This is a Cumberland diary that has a plastic sleeve cover so you can change the cover easily and the plastic protects it.

I used an idea for the Butterflies thinlits dies that I saw on Deb Valder's blog and I have used the larger of the Butterfly dies, then reinserted it like a jigsaw puzzle piece. I then heat embossed the "Something Lacy" background stamp (with white embossing powder) at the bottom and divided the cover with a strip of White Jute ribbon. I then cut a piece of the Jute ribbon down the centre, formed a bow, then frayed it out and attached it to the centre of the ribbon strip. My background cardstock is Night of Navy and the mat is Bermuda Bay (my all time favourite colour).

My next project is made with the Mini Treat Bag thinlits. I used the Typeset DSP form the main catalogue . I like the fact that this DSP is lighter in weight than other DSPs and more like parchment.

I have decorated it with a strip of DSP from the Adventure Bound DSP pack , as well as a half doily, a strip of blendy coloured White Jute ribbon and a Brushed Silver bow using the Bow Builder punch.
