I can hardly wait to share this post with you!  Because the excitement continues!  I sat down yesterday to create with all my new products and I want to let you know that it's all way better than it looks, and it looks amazing!  The colours, the performance, the images!  Let's just say I'm in Stamper's Heaven!  You've got to get your hands on some of this stuff!

We have a team meeting tonight, and our swap theme is products from the new catalogue, so I thought I'd create something using the MOJO Monday Sketch #297.  (Whoa! They're getting close to 300 challenges over there at MOJO Monday!)  I also got out a new set that I just bought, Lovely Romance, and some Eastern Elegance DSP, with coordination inks, Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry.

Here's the card:

And here's the MOJO Monday #297 sketch:

Well, the first thing I want to share with you is that I used my new magnetic platform for my Big Shot, when I was making this card.  It worked even better than I expected!  The strong magnetic field held the Square Framelits and the Chalk Talk framelits firmly in place and enabled me to cut out shapes without plastering Post It Notes all over to keep them in place. WOOT!

The second thing I wanted to share was that the 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim really does go easily around circular and oval shapes because of the stretch and the ruffles.  Take a closer look at this gorgeous colour, Coastal Cabana, and the way it backs the oval!

I was so hoping it would work just like this!  Imagine the possibilities!  You can get it in all the new 2013/15 In Colours.  And those lovely images you're looking at?  They are from the Lovely Romance stamp set.  The "Amazing" piece coordinates with the Chalk Talk framelits as well!

Then there is the colour palette, taken from the Eastern Elegance DSP that I used - Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry (so pretty together) - on a base of Soft Sky.  I can't get over how gorgeous that Designer Series Paper it!
