Stampin' Creative Blog Hop - May

Hello and welcome to another months blog hop brought to you by the Stampin' Creative crew.

This month we are focusing on sneak peeks from the new Stampin' UP! catalogue that will be going live to you all on Tues 2nd June. 
We demonstrators are lucky to get an early 'bite at the cherry' and have been able to order some of the new goodies for the last month. With that in mind we thought you might like to see what we have been creating. 
You have joined me from the lovely CARO who has been having fun I'm sure you will agree.

Recently we had a training day at Telford with over 350 demonstrators attending and I was very lucky to be asked to create some of the display items for the day. I was given 2 kits to play with and this is the one I chose to share with you today.

It is the Sweet Stack Project Kit (on page 152 of the new catalogue) and was so lovely to put together. 

All you need is in the kit and it makes a lovely display piece or 'office cake' for all those birthdays which seem to come around. Each box can hold a little something too so good to gift small items. 
The banner can be changed to say anything you like so ideal for baby showers, birthdays, leaving do's etc. 

I have also been having fun with the lovely new In Colours and a personal challenge to myself to work on my clean and simple cards. This is something I have been struggling with for a while and like all struggles it is easier to avoid than face but I took the stamp to the ink and faced the fear lol.

Here is a card using the new colours of  Cucumber Crush,Watermelon Wonder and Delightful Dijon.

The lines of colour are stamped using Work of Art and I added a simple bold sentiment from Perfect Pennants stamped in Staz On.

Please let me know if you think I am on conquering my fear and mastering the art of Clean and Simple.

Next you can hop over to PIP and see what fun she has been having with new goodies.
