2015 Occasions Catalog Blog Hop

How many times have you stared at every single page in the 2015 Occasions Catalog since it went live on Tuesday?

I have said several times before, and will continue to say it, Hello Life is my favorite set in this catalog. I also love the coordinating Hello Life Project Kit. It came with extra hearts, frames, etc. I used one of them on this card.

You Are Awesome!

I hadn't ever taken notice of Big News in the catalog, but when it went on sale during the Online Extravaganza at the end of November, I decided to order it. I'm so glad that I did. I love it!

I was inspired for the layout from one of the swap cards I had received from Cynthia at our SSINK DT Convention Swap. I liked how she had used the Envelope Punch Board to embellish her layer.

Want to know what else is awesome? This is my 300th blog post! Thank you so much for following!
