Inspiring Inkin Annual Catalogue 2014-2015 Launch Blog Hop

Good morning,
Today I'm really excited to be joining in with the Inspiring Inkin' Blog Hop, where 17 members of the team are bringing you fantastic projects using products from the new 2014-2015 Annual Catalogue which goes live on 1st July 2014. Not long to wait now ;-)
You can join the hop anywhere in the chain and hop along to the next talented team member by clicking on the next person on the list. Aren't all the projects fantastic - I'll be CASEing for sure ;-)
As my first love is scrapbooking I had to do something based around that, so my project is a little mini book using the gorgeous new Lullaby Designer Series Paper (DSP) - 12 double sided sheets of 12" x 12" paper, which I don't think is ever done true justice until you see it IRL. I've lost count of the amount of times I've looked at paper in a catalogue and thought nothing of it, and then seen it in real life and thought...why on earth haven't I bought this, it's gorgeous! Please don't tell me I'm the only one who does this!  

This DSP is perfect for use with baby/toddler photos, although I've used it here to record a wedding day just to show how versatile it is. Envelopes used to create the inside of the mini book (which was made following a template I purchased) have been folded and cut to create little pockets, where I've added additional pull out sections making use of another new product, which is possibly my favourite item at the moment - I'm an Adminstrator by day...what can I say, filing and organisation is a bit of an obsession! ;-)
Supplies used:
Stamps - Everything Eleanor, Perfect Pennants, Petite Petals

Colours - Whisper White, Early Espresso, Hello Honey, Coastal Cabana
Punches - Bird Builder, Petite Petal
Framelit Dies - File Tab 
Misc - Lullaby DSP, Rhinestone Gems, Paper Doilies, Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Whisper White Envelopes

I hope you're enjoying the hop. Use the links below to hop along the chain. If you're following in sequence then your next stop should be  to the very lovely Liz, check out her wonderful work and don't forget to leave us a comment if you're enjoying the hop :-)
