Looking through the new Spring/Summer Catalogue I spotted the Sending Love and Falling in Love Suites, both of which I love (pardon the pun!), but at first I wasn’t sure that I would really get much use out of them, given that it is less than a month until Valentine’s Day. I could kind of ‘get’ the Falling in Love Suite being used for weddings, and it is the perfect choice for that, with lots of lace and soft colours (it is my absolute favourite stack of Designer Series Paper, at the moment), but I was struggling with the Sending Love Suite, until I started playing with it. It is beautiful and perfect for all sorts of occasions and is so bright and cheerful with the cleanness of just Real Red and Whisper White. Love it!! (Sorry, I just seem to be in a pun mood)
Today’s project uses both of these suites with no Valentine’s message in sight. This is a perfect box for all sorts of goodies, but is made specifically for two Nails Inc Nail Polishes. I put together a top coat and a colour, which is a perfect little gift, and used the colour to inspire the choice of cardstock. The Red, is, obviously, Real Red and uses one of the subtle patterns from the Sending Love Paper Stack. The more subtle one is Sahara Sand and the Falling in Love Papers. The Designer Series Paper can be cut from just one 2-1/2 x 6″ strip!
One of the many things I love about Stampin’ Up! is that they make it so easy to get the colours right; not only are the colours true across all the products, but ever Designer Series Paper pack or stack lists the colours used on the back AND in the details in the catalogue. So easy!
Remember that if you are placing an online order between £25 and £150, you should use the current Hostess Code shown on this site and you will get a share in any Hostess goodies (full details of how this works are here). Also, during Sale-a-Bration, to get a free item, such as the Avant Garden stamp set I used, for each £45 you spend (so two items if your order is £90 etc). ALSO and this is the big one, now is the PERFECT TIME to try out the Starter Kit. Not only do you get to choose £130 of products (your choice) for £99. You get FREE P&P and, until 31 March 2017, two free stamp sets of your choice from the Annual or Spring/Summer Catalogue, so up to an equivalent value of about £225. You then get the Demo discount, invitations to Team and Stampin’ Up! events, the Demo Magazine and newsletters, the opportunity to get items from the new Annual Catalogue before Customers etc, etc etc. You will have all of this until the end of June at least, all for just £99!! What is not to love about that!!
