Creation Station Blog Hop | Occasions Catalogue Faves

Happy New Year!

I hope you had a fabulous festive season and brought in 2016 with joy, whether than meant champagne and party hats at midnight or a cup of tea and television repeats on the couch.

This month, the Creation Station team is bringing you projects using some favourite products from the Occasions Catalogue, due out in just a couple of days from now. 

My absolute favourite new stamp set from the catalogue is called Number of Years and involves huge watercolour-y numbers and beautiful accompanying imagery PLUS a co-ordinating set of Framelits that you can bundle together with the stamp set for a 15% discount.

I had an idea rattling around in my brain for this set and finally sat down to extract it last week, on a stinking hot day, perched at a temporary set up under the air-conditioner in my lounge room.

Stampers gotta stamp, yes..?!

I'm delighted to report that it turned out just as I had hoped, if not a little bit cuter...

Stamps:  Number of Years, Day to Day  Paper:  Kraft, Whisper White, Birthday Bouquet DSP  Ink:  Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, Blushing Bride  Accessories:  Watermelon Wonder 1" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Linen Thread

I love a perpetual calendar and might save up this particular idea for when the need for teacher gifts rolls around again in approximately 11 months. Either that, or make them now because the idea is fresh and I have everything I need, but where's the fun in taking all the urgency and midnight crafting opportunities away from my frazzled end of year self...?

Here are some additional views...

Continue hopping to see what the rest of the team have chosen as their favourites. You can be guaranteed that by the time you finish, you'll have a mile long wishlist ready just in time for the catalogue release on Tuesday!
