Passionettes Spring/Summer Seasonal Catalogue Blog Hop, 2013

Welcome to the last Blog in the Passionettes Spring/Summer Catalogue Blog Hop.
I hope that you have been inspired by all of the beautiful projects that everyone has prepared using the new products available to order from the Catalogue.

You may have just joined us or come from Tara's Blog HERE.

I chose to showcase some products from pages 32 - 33 of the Catalogue.

I based my projects on the Sizzlits S Die which die cuts an adorable pinwheel and the Blowing Wishes Your Way Stamp Set. The Stamp Set also has the sentiments happy birthday, thank you, best wishes and you are headed in the right direction so they can be used for a good selection of cards.

For the above card and treat box I used Tempting Turquoise, Real Red and Daffodil Delight from the Brights colour family.
 Pinwheels speak to me of Summer - teas in the garden, parties or the Beach!

I then made a card and a Ferrero Rocher Box in more subtle tones using the In Colour 2012 - 2014 Family.
I love the Pinwheels. They are so easy to make as the holes to put the mini brad through are cut out by the Big Shot. You can fold each section over on to a Pricking tool, hold it secure with your fingers and then thread the Mini Brad through to hold it all together.

I also love Scrapbooking and I know that these pinwheels will enhance all sorts of pages especially Summer ones!

Supplies used:-

Designer Series Paper - Poppy Parade and Patio Party.

Card Stock - Real Red, Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Primrose Petals and Whisper White.

Punches - Dotted Scallop Ribbon., Scallop Edge Border, Decorative Label, Owl Builder, Word Window,
