We Create Blog Hop--Something Old, Something New!

Well friends, I know you are probably wondering what I've been up to, and the answer!  I have had so many things going on at once, I just had to put my blogging, blog hopping, and creating on the back burner for a while.  I know many of you can understand my plight.  I have to admit, it has been enjoyable being able (forced) to create for this project, and although my new stamps will probably arrive sometime today (let's hear it for poor planning!!) I decided I would use a few of my favorite stamp sets that will be returning in the brand new Stampin' Up! catalog going live tomorrow, June 2!

I used Fabulous Four (a perfect, all-around sentiment stamp set) and Gorgeous Grunge (easily one of my all time favs) and the beautiful Flower Shop (bundled with a coordinating punch). We have great packaging options to satisfy many different needs. The Petite CafĂ© gift bag is a perfect bag for food items as it is poly-lined for yummy cookies!  The only returning DSP from the last catalog is Typeset Specialty DSP which is a lightweight paper, great for using with our wonderful punch boards. I topped it off with a Candy Dot and a Designer button to pull in my Crushed Curry color.  Hopefully, my new arrivals will inspire me to keep the juices flowing and I'll be able to share a few new projects from the new catalog soon!
I know the blog hoppers have some old and new items as well, go check them out and see their wonderful creativity!

I hope no one has forgotten about me, being gone so long!  I still love stamping and papercrafting, so keep checking in, I promise I'll keep coming back!!
