We are hopping again Celebrating the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog!

Our Blog Hop runs in a circular fashion.  No matter where in the list of participants you begin, you'll wind up in the exact same place again if you keep going to the "next" blog.  It works the same way whether you do the usual forward movement through the blog posts or if you work your way through in reverse order

If you arrived here from Penny's blog welcome!

My first card uses a returning stamp set as well as 3 that carried over from the Occasions Catalog. The card base is Delightful Dijon a new "In color"
Stamps: World of Dreams, Butterfly Basics, Perpetual Birthday Calendar & Guy Greetings
Paper: Delightful Dijon, Very Vanilla CS
Ink: Delightful Dijon, Hello Honey, Soft Suede & VersaMark
Misc: Nutrals & Regal Candy Dots, Gold Bakers Twine(pulled apart & used just the gold thread), Clear Embossing Powder & Antique Brads

My 2nd card base is the new "In color" Watermelon Wonder.

Paper: Watermelon Wonder & Blushing Bride CS & 1 ply toilet tissue

Last are some storage boxes that I am working on for my craft room. They were nesting boxes with Santas on them, I wanted to be able to use them all year- round, I am waiting for the new Bold Butterfly Framelits to arrive so I can add a small butterfly to the smallest box.

Thanks for Stopping by, please take a moment and let me know that you were here ;).  Remember to hop over to Stephanie's Blog and check out what she has created.


  1. Kath I love the honeycomb stamp in the Butterfly Basics set and love the way you used it. Also love the colours on your butterfly - they really pop against that black background.

  2. Kath, great projects! Your Father's Day card is spectacular!

  3. Wow - I can't stop going back to look at your first card, Kath! I love how you combined those 3 stamp sets, and all the little details - just fabulous! Great projects, all of them - thanks for sharing :)

  4. Love your cards, Kath.
    Great idea with the toilet tissue flower. I remember doing those with the cookie molds. Too bad they don't still make colored toilet tissue. (am I dating myself?)

  5. Kath, great projects! I really love the first card and that lovely background. it is just perfect!

  6. Love your cards, Kath - especially the World of Dreams/Perpetual Calendar/Butterfly Basics one. Beautiful! And what a fun and gorgeous way to repurpose the boxes.

  7. Kath your first card is simply stunning. I love how you combined the stamps and the honeycomb in the background really sets the stage for a great card. Love the toilet tissue technique for show casing the blended bloom flower in your second card as well as your burst of colour with the butterfly image in your third card. Thanks so much for sharing.

  8. I saw your card on Pinterest earlier and didn't realize it was yours. :) Great job!

  9. Love your collage card! Love the colors, love the stamping, love the button and metallic thread! Just beautiful!

  10. Hi Kath, thanks for continuing to be part of our fun Blog Hop. You had me puzzled when you said that there were three carried-over stamp sets used in that first card. But then I hadn't considered the Perpetual Birthday Calendar. What a great combination! I've never tried leaving an imprint of a stamp in wet toilet tissue but "WOW" what a great idea! This is definitiely next on my "to try" list. The finished piece looks like clay. Love it! Your nesting boxes---wonderful idea. I may "borrow" it for some I have in the back of my cupboard.
