INKlings Blog Hop

Welcome to The INKlings’ Team’s Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue blog hop. You may have arrived here from Cath's blog or just be visiting my blog, whichever way once you’ve checked out my creations you can continue the hop through the links at the end of this post to the next team member.

With a new Mini Catalogue out today we thought it would be a great time to showcase the gorgeous new products to all our blog readers. You can check out the new mini catalogue online here or if you'd like your own copy contact me today and I'll pop one in the mail to you.

Want to win some Blog Candy? Simply leave a comment on each blog before midnight AEST on 3rd April and then email Kari at and let her know you’ve done so and you’ll be in the running for some fantastic handmade cards plus other goodies. Sorry Blog Candy prize not available to SU! demonstrators or anyone living outside Australia, but you're more than welcome to leave us a comment!

As soon as I saw the Sweet Stitches DSP in the Autumn/Winter Mini Catty I fell in love, funny thing is that it wasn't with these papers, it was all the other ones. When I was searching for some pics to scrapbook I found these from my daughters first day of school & realised that the colours matched the uniform perfectly (the sports uniform is even yellow & green)

Please forgive my contraband doily - since the colour was such a great match I couldn't resist adding it.Here are a couple of close-ups of the cute flowers that I made using the Birds & Bloom Die through my Bigshot

I also LOVE the gorgeous butterfly from the Strength & Hope stampset. Stampin' Up! is donating $2 from the sale of every set to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, so if you'd like to make a difference contact me today to order your own set.

Well that’s all from me. Next stop on the INKlings’ Team Blog Hop is Liz. Have fun and don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to win some great Blog Candy - I have made 2 gorgeous cards to giveaway as blog candy, just haven't had a chance to take a pic yet!

Beautiful! I feel guilty now - I still haven't scrapbooked Claire's first day, and she's in Year 1 now! But come to think of it, the tempting turquoise in that DSP would look lovely next to her uniform...hmmm. I think the contraband doily looks fabulous! ;)
