So happy this in the New Catalogue Blog Hop

Maybe I should have called this... Everything & the Kitchen Sink!! Boy have I been having fun!!!

Welcome to the Jems Blog Hop with lots of NEW products to share and some carrying over products too. Hope you are as excited as we are!
Now in true Amanda style I really hadn't a clue what I was going to feature today. I am very excited about lots of the new products ... and I was SO lucky in that I was able to pre-order so many of my Must Haves in May... that usually doesn't happen.... so there was a lot for me to choose from....
So I decided that I would do 3 things....

(1) Use the stamp set that everyone just said "Amanda Bates" when they first saw it! 

Yes...we are talking At Home With You... and it was on the demo pre-order!!!! I am so happy to have this set!!  At Home with You stamps with co-ordinating At Home dies... all wrapped in a bundle with 10% off...

(2) Write up yesterday's post with my Favourite Things in the New Catalogue so I could concentrate on creating with "my door" today!

(3) Make another Bench Fold card seeing as you all liked them so much! I hope you like this one too... 

Edited to Add- CLICK HERE for the details to get the Tutorial(s) for my Bench Fold cards. 

I have been itching to use my At Home With You door for wood kitchen cupboards! And to make a Butler's Sink too....
And my favourite bits of the card... again the combination of the whole thing and getting to use the lovely new products and have some real crafty fun.... But in the details...

The kitchen cupboards and the windows care of At Home With You stamps & dies... as well as the pot of flowers, hanging signs and the lantern die for part of the tap and Fairy (Platinum) washing up liquid bottle!

Spot that I turned the handle round on some of the kitchen doors... more on that another day...
And did you spot the granite worktop...care of the old faithful Touches of Texture and black ink on Basic Grey...

Then we have the sink drainer care of the Colorful Seasons chair... which was also used for part of the taps, the washing up bottle and the little basket (for the soap and scrubbing brush!) under the left window!! 

And a laugh for you... this little basket was in the scraps pile I cleared up!!! So I can't take any credit for that one! 
And a prediction for you... the chair in the Colorful Seasons bundle could become the most "creative" die ever!!! I do have a list of lots of ideas... and a drainer, taps and basket weren't on there!

Great to use new papers... 6x6 Wood Textures for the cupboards, windows, hanging signs and flower pot ... so much wood... a real must have pack! I think I have a plan for every piece of paper!

And the lovely 12x12 Delightful Daisy for the wallpaper and blinds... this pack is proving very popular...

And oh... blink and you will miss it... but the window panes are care of the 6x6 Color Theory paper pack... just a bit from the palest part of the Dapper Denim ombre piece...

Yes I did seriously use papers from 3 packs.... it just had to be done to bring it all together!!!

And so there you have it... my new Kitchen Sink Bench Fold Card... click here for the Bench Fold Card tutorial details... Same card... Same general decoration details... though the specific detailed step by step instructions of this one will be in my Series Two release... coming soon... I just need to make a couple more designs with my very new stash of papers!
 And yes it does fold flat for posting....
I will be providing a Class in the Mail option for the At Home Bundle as well as an in-person class... more details to follow... but please register your interest by clicking here to email me... no commitment at this stage! (Sorry for my distance readers - only available in UK, France, Germany, Austria and Holland)

And so now it is time to pass you on... to the lovely Sarah if you are in forward mode...
Or to the lovely Uma if you have missed one - or prefer to go in reverse!

And just in case of any problems along the way... here is a full list of our blog hoppers  and links today...

  11. This is absolute genius!! So much detail & so cleverly done. My favourite piece has to be the drainer & I can't wait to see what else you have lined up for that die. Thanks for sharing!
