I designed this card for the Catalog Unveiling that I had earlier this month. It's a cute birthday card using the new hostess set "Birthday Bakery" and the new patterned paper collection "Sunny Garden." The colors for this card are So Saffron, Poppy Parade, Early Espresso, and Whisper White. I used some new Early Espresso 1/8 inch Taffeta ribbon and the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch as well.

Here's a cute card that I sent to all the members of my family before our vacation. This card uses a similar layout to the "Just a little note" card on page 12 of the catalog. The card has a row of circles across the bottom and an apple image cut out and raised with dimensionals towards the bottom right portion of the card. It has a lot of white space making it look very clean and simple.
I wanted to use the new "Tropical Party" set that's in the Summer Mini Catalog. The coconut image is cut out and popped up with dimensionals. The colors used in this project are Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Early Espresso, and Rose Red.

With the arrival of the new Stampin' Up! Catalog I've come up with a new idea to motivate myself throughout the year. Instead of being inspired by ideas all over the world wide web, I'm going to try to use this year's catalog for my inspiration. Perhaps I'll recreate a project that's in the book, or maybe I'll just take one element of a catalog project (like the layout or the color scheme) and use that to get me started. If you'd like to play along, feel free comment to this post with links to your creations.
For my first Catalog Inspiration Challenge (CIC1), I recreated one of the square cards on page 10 of the catalog that uses the Because I Care Stamp Set (Hostess Level 1 Set). Instead of square though, I made it a standard rectangular card. I used Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride and Certainly Celery for my color scheme. I also simplified the ribbon embellishment and the scallop trip edge.
