Spring Is Here!

Welcome to the Isle of Wight and my little section of the In Love With Stamping blog hop to celebrate the launch of the new Stampin'  Up Spring Summer Catalogue. You should have hopped here from Michelle's blog.
I have been giving little sneak peaks of the new products for a little while now and I am super excited to be able to share everything fully now. If you popped by here yesterday you will have seen my technique idea blog post about puffy hearts, well here is the finished Valentines project. I am 100% sure my other half won't be reading by blog anytime soon (nor rooting around in my craft room) so I don't mind sharing his card here. I am back to work after my 10 months of maternity leave this week so I have had to be a bit more organised with my makings. When I saw the beautiful More Amore DSP and Fabric I knew it would make a perfect Valentines card.
I layered my three puffy padded hearts onto lace and ribbon from the absolutely beautiful Artisan Embellishments kit (I am having to order another kit as I have used my first on all the projects I have been sharing this week- it is so versatile as I used it for a scrapbook page, a birthday card and now a Valentines card!). The greeting is stamped from the Wacky Wishes Hostess set from the main catalogue (and cut using the Apothecary Accents Framelits).
I finished my card with large pearls and an itty bitty heart button.
While we are hopping I thought I would also share with you a couple of projects I made for a Hostess thank you at a recent party. I do not know how I missed these fab Kraft Gift boxes in the main catalogue. But upon ordering them they are just about my new favourite gift box. I covered this one with Tea for Two Designer Series Paper and wrapped with the gorgeous new two tone ribbon (Pink Pirouette/Rose Red). This was then filled with a mini taster box of products from the new Spring Summer catalogue including buttons, brads and ribbons (and a few added extras too!). 

Here is the thank you card I made to match the gift box which again uses the Tea for Two DSP, the fab Honeycomb Embossing Folder and the gorgeous new Flower Trim (another thing to add to my next order as I have been endlessly using the first 1.8m I purchased!)

Thank you for hopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my projects. Please continue the hop by popping over to Clare's blog.
Just a few reminders for my regular readers. My new catalogue Open House is tomorrow between 10am-3pm. I will have a copy of the new catalogue for all attendees as well as a goody bag prize draw and my extra special Sale-A-Bration promotion announcement for anyone placing a qualifying order with me before March 22nd (more info tomorrow).
Happy Crafting ;0)
