ILWS Mini Catalogue Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the first ILWS Blog Hop of 2012.
Today we are celebrating the launch of Stampin' Up!'s Spring Mini catalogue.
Bonjour et Bienvenu sur le premier Saut de Blog de l'année avec ILWS.
Aujourd'hui nous célébrons la sortie du nouveau Mini Catalogue de Printemps de Stampin' Up!
I have loved these Spiced Cake papers ever since I saw them in the American catalogue and hoped that we would eventually get them over here in Europe and, yeah !!!, we did.

J'ai adoré ces papiers pain D'épice depuis je les ai vus dans le catalogue américain et j'espérais que nous serions éventuellement les obtenir en Europe, et ouais !!!, nous les avons.
After I had made my box I used the little left over scraps to decorate my card.
And as you know I love buttons !!!!
So I was over the moon with these extra large ones that match the papers.
Après j'avais fait ma boite j'ai utilisé les restes pour décorer ma carte.
Et comme vous le savez j'adore les boutons !!!
Alors j'ai été sur la lune avec ces boutons extra grands assortis avec les papiers.
To follow our blog hop you will now go on to Emma or backwards to Rozelle.
And to make things easier I have put a list of all the demonstrators who are joining in today in a list on the right hand column of my blog.

Pour suivre notre saut de blog vous allez maintenant passer au blog d'Emma ou l'arrière chez Rozelle.
Et pour rendre les choses plus faciles j'ai mis une liste de toutes les démonstratrices qui participent aujourd'hui sur la colonne de droite de mon blog.

Enjoy your hopping,
Profitez de votre saut,

Alison xx

  7. Absolutely love the box, best use of the papers I have seen, as I wasn't that keen on seeing them in the catalogue. But your box has changed my mind and I may just have a go with them.

  8. Hi Alison, thanks for joining in. You are now linked up in the side bar of the blog. don't forget we also have a f/b group and a flickr group that you may use.

    Don't worry about having your book made, it is just somewhere to store your cards safely, you can make it anytime.

    countries are announced each Monday , usually morning UK time.

    I will make a blog post that 'should' post on a Friday morning, in that post will be a Mr. Linky widget. you can post your photos to your blog or to the flickr group anytime from Friday to Sunday, but if you want people to visit then come to my blog and link up in the Mr. Linky widget thingie..
