Blog Hop Postponed

My apologies, I mentioned on Easter Sunday's post that I would be back on Monday with a mini bloghop.  I've just received notification that unfortunately we have had to reschedule this on another  day.  So as not to disappoint you, here are a couple of snippets from the original blog hop post .
With it being the Easter break, I had to make something to contain Easter treats! These little boxes were made from the Petite PocketXL die. I cut all three pieces of cardstock in Pacific Point, Lucky Limeade and Melon Mambo and wrapped some DSP round it and then tied it with co-ordinating ribbon. The stamped images were stamped on Whisper White card stock and punched out with the small oval punch. I threaded bakers twine through the holes on the tags and tied them round the ribbon. 

Stampin' Up! carry these 1"x 8" cello bags (2.5 x 20 cm) which are great for putting small treats in - my problem was finding some easter eggs small enough to go in them! I used the Fancy Flower punch, 1 3/4" circle scallop punch and the Blossom punch to make these. The stamped centres were punched out with a 1" circle punch, and 1 1/4" scallop circle punch. The 1 1/4" scallop circle punch was introduced in our Autumn/Winter catalogue from 2012, but thankfully they have carried it over into our Spring/Summer catty and it is still available for purchase. (SSp34) 
As a bonus - here are some card samples I made for the Sandown Show back in January 2013 which I don't think I've posted yet.  All the materials used are available in the Spring/Summer 2013 catty.
Summer Starfruit is an acquired taste, but it seems to co-ordinate well with Primrose Petal card stock.
I have used the Cloudy Day embossing folder, Print Poetry DSP pack and Wishes Your Way stamp set......

 ....and the pinwheel die, and lots of items from the Spring/Summer catalogue - hope you like it.
