Buttons and Bottlecaps

I am going to write a rather abbreviated post today, because my youngest daughter and son-in-law and my oldest grandson are here, having arrived yesterday with plans to leave on Saturday.  I want to spend all the time I can with them!  My little grandson, Parker, is cuteness personified right now.  He is almost a year old (Jan. 13) and he is walking all over the place, and learning to handle stairs (but we put up a baby gate anyway!) and has all sorts of games including "Where's Parker?  There he is!" involving the living room drapes, and "Where'd it go?" which involves throwing something on the floor and putting up both hands in a puzzled shrug!  I love skype because it helps so much with keeping in touch, but its 200 times better having them here in person!

My daughter is having fun going through my paper scraps and retired sets and while she was collecting a nice little grab bag to take home with her, she helped me with the design of my first card for Technique Night next week, the theme of which is Spring Mini Catalogue products!  Here it is:


This uses gobs of Spring Mini and Sale-A-Bration products.  The Spring Mini comes into effect on January 3, and this year's Sale-A-Bration starts January 22.  If you haven't received your catalogues yet, email or call me and I'll see that you get one. 

The first thing to note is the new Embossing Folder called Honeycomb.  Love that hexagon pattern on the new Pool Party Core'dinations Card Stock.  This card stock has an inner layer of a lighter colour which you can reveal by sanding or distressing.  It also comes in Primrose Petals and Real Red.

The stamp set is from the Sale-A-Bration brochure and is called Vintage Verses, and you will be able to get it FREE with a purchase of $60 of product after January 22, 2013!  What a deal!



Then notice the cool burlap ribbon and the bottle caps.  These are both found in the Spring Mini!  The bottle caps come in two sizes.  This is the small size.  Hope you like this little sneak peek and if you would like to make it, register today for my January Technique Nights, either on Jan. 2 or 3, at this link:  Register before Dec.31.
