I just got my copy of the new 2008 catalog today! Can't wait to show it off, and for my first order.
So I've been working on some stuff in between the cards and finally finished them all up and took some pics. I know, you're surprised I got to it so quickly, it's the new me. (for now at least, lol)
This is an altered paint can using the Outlaw pattern paper. In the new catti, this pattern is in blue/red. Very nice. I used twill to tie on the buckle thingie from the hardware kit. I'll be 'wrapping' my bil's gift in here. Here is a repeat card but in a different color. Love the effect of the masking technique. Will have to incorporate that with some swirls... I used Almost Amethyst with Lovely Lilac.
I also made some journals for a few gifts this year. Used a friends bind-it-all machine, think I may have to buy my own. ;)
First one used Chocolate chip cs and taffeta riboon, Brocade background pp, pewter hardware, pretty in pink cs & markers and WW cs. Stamp set is from a new level 3 set.
Second one used Always Artichoke cs, chocolate chip cs & ink, WW cs & ink and Le Jardin pp. Stamps are from All Natural and Baroque Motifs.

First one is for my bil. Used basic grey cs, chocolate chip taffeta ribbon and pewter hardware. I printed his initials on the computer and inserted it in the frame. The pp is from MMS.

Second one uses blue bayou cs & ink brocade backgrouds pp, pewter hardware, cream grossgrain ribbon, and a chipboard 'B' that I colord chocolate chip. The saying is from the Polka dots and paisley set.
These were the simplest as I just used a sheet of paper and added nothing after that. I just felt the pp was enough. They are both from the Le Jardin line. (I think) These are for Colby's preschool teachers.

Love it! Keep those masked cards in mind for Easter. If you look at them, with the shading and design don't they remind you of easter eggs? OK maybe not the snowflakes, but I can picture some other little stamped image (like circles) to make them look like eggs.


PS Bring that catty over!!!!!
