These Wednesdays are flying by! I think every day flies by in December though. And since we’re at another Wednesday, we have another sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches. Take a look at what our our talented hostess, Rita Wright, has for us (I love the tilted panels on this sketch!):
I got a little distracted from my Christmas card to-do list yesterday. I got a box full of pre-order goodies from the upcoming Occasions Spring catalog yesterday. As a demonstrator, we get to order these products a month early — such a fun perk! We also get to include Sale-a-Bration products as well, and I have to say that I love the offerings this year. I also got my first box of Artisan goodies, so it was like Christmas yesterday opening both of these boxes. As I sat and stared at all of these fun things, I must admit I felt quite overwhelmed. I mean, where to start? Which one to use first? What a fun problem, huh!
The catalogs don’t go live until January 5, but here’s a sneak peek for you. I ended up pulling out the Botanicals for You stamp set, which is a Sale-a-Bration offering. I love the big, bold sentiment in this set. And it has some cute companion sentiments as well, but I didn’t use those on this card. One fun thing about this set is that it coordinates with a designer vellum stack, which is another Sale-a-Bration offering which I used on my card below. It also coordinates with a fun bundle in the Occasions catalog. So there are lots of ways to use this set.
The background dsp is from Botanical Gardens dsp, which will be available in the Occasions catalog. I love the colors in it — Hello Honey, Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow, Basic Black, and Old Olive. The washi tape is also from the Occasions catalog and coordinates with the Botanical Gardens suite.
We hope you’ll take a little break from your Christmas preparations to make your own card with the sketch this week! We love to look through the gallery. You can go see what’s in there yourself and look at all of the design team’s creative work at the Freshly Made Sketches site.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!
