I decided to do a scrapbook layout using items from the new Occasions Catalog.  I have to say, I LOVE the new catalog.  LOTS of new fun stuff to play with.  Without further ado, here is my layout:


  • Paper: Watercolor Wonder DSP (#132994), 2013-2015 In Color Core'Dinations (#129958), Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum (#133363)
  • Stamps: Make Note This & That Rotary Stamp (#133370), Love You To The Moon (#133143) 
  • Ink: Jet Black Stazon Pad (#101406)
  • Punch: Punch Pack (#118309)
  • Embellishments: Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape (#133000), Basic Rhinestones Jewel Accents (#119246), Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details (#127845), Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430), Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack (#129387), Essentials Wooden Elements (#132258)

And here are a few close-up pictures of my layout:

I used the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack to highlight the Essentials Wooden Elements, which I colored with my markers.

I also stamped on one of my Essentials Wooden Elements, using Staz-on, then added some color with my markers.  I also used the Staz-on ink to stamp on the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum.

I hope I've given you some new ideas for ways to use the items from the Occasions catalog.  Now, hop on over to Annie L. of  Love Me Cards.

 Hop to Annie L.
