Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Blog Hop aka Scallop Square # 8 and #9

Welcome to The Craft Spa for those of you that have hopped across from Tinas' blog  and for those of you starting here..... just a few words to explain!!  A group of 40 extremely talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators have got ourselves organised ( via the forum In Love with Stamping) in the form of 2 blog hops ( 20 in each!) to show you some projects using products from the new Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalogue. These products are available from 1st May until end of August 2012.

So here is a link to the new Stampin' Up! Summer Mini Catalogue. This is the first time we have had a Summer Mini in the UK and I am thoroughly enjoying all the wonderful new products in it!! Lots more to share with you....... Watch this space!!!

And here are a couple of projects using some new stamp sets and products to whet your appetite!

Firstly, one for the babies!! This Double Z Fold card uses the new Baby Prints stamp set and the wonderful new pleated ribbon across the inside of the card! Shown here in Blushing Bride - but also available in Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz & Riding Hood Red.

Aren't these stamped hands and feet just gorgeous!! The papers are from the Nursery Nest pack which are just perfect for this project - for the boys as well as the girls! As you will see on another day!! Just need a few minutes to finally assemble the boys version!!

Secondly, one for a wedding - or for a wedding  anniversary. This Centre Step Card uses the new Love & Laughter stamp set - as well as the new Bakers Twine ( which I have been desperate to get my hands on for a while!!)  Shown here in Pool Party - but also available in all this years' In-Colors - Wisteria Wonder, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo and Calypso Coral.

What a wonderful image of a wedding cake here - I also couldn't resist using a Centre Step Card format as I thought it looks like a cake too!!

Hope these cards please and inspire you . And talking of inspiration.... here is the link to the next blog in our hop where the Ruth  has even more to inspire you!!
