Occasions Catalogue - AWH Team - January Blog Hop

Hi everyone, welcome to our January blog hop with the Art with Heart team.

Tonight the team are sharing creative projects, featuring products from the Occasions Catalogue.
The catalogue is current now, until June 3rd. Be sure to request your copy today, along with the Sale-a-bration brochure.
Did you know, that sale-a-bration is a great time to join our fabulous team?
Just ask anyone on the blog hop if you'd like more details.

For my project, I focused on the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack.

The elements contained in the pack can be used for a wide variety of projects, and tonight I'm sharing two cards that I made for the hop.

The pack contains small and large patterned cards and some lovely stickers. It's so simple to create a card in minutes! Can you see the stitched edge around the striped card in the centre? I took one of our Rectangle Stitched Framelits dies and cut down one of the smaller cards. The bow is made from the crumb cake twine out of the Nature's Twine pack that's in the Annual Catalogue.
For the card bases, I've used the Happiness Blooms cards & envelopes that coordinate perfectly with the cards in the pack.

I made a smaller card for my second one.

A gorgeous combination of Lovely Lipstick and Night of Navy. Just look at those beautiful
flowers. The central flower is a sticker from the pack, and all I did to make it sparkle, was to add a touch of the Wink of Stella brush. I stuck this onto a stitched circle and backed it with a lovely lipstick foiled scalloped circle. The foil is a "freebie" from the sale-a-bration brochure, and you get 4 sheets each of, Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove. If you'd like to know more about how you can get your hands on some FREE product, just get in touch with me. The enamel dots are part of the Happiness Blooms suite.

Thank you for joining us on our hop tonight. If you're already hopping, then you may have come to me from the blog of the lovely Kate Morgan, but hops are full circles, so you can start anywhere and just click the 'next blog' button at the end of each post, to get back to where you started.

Next up is the equally lovely and talented Sharon Davern.
