New Catalogue Project ...................... and a challenge

The new Stampin' Up! catalogue is all set to start July 2, 2013.... but being a demonstrator means we get to see everything early and even get to play with some things in the pre-release.... I felt sure you would want to see something we've been playing with! ;)          



I thought this could be made into a scrapbook page too... don't you? Imagine that I've stamped up kind of 3/4 of the page on the diagonal like this with this June 2013 Best of Flowers stamp... added a central mat to it and then the embellishment created here with the stamps and framelit set from the new catalogue... add some photos..... perfect. 

Challenge: 
Grab a card you love and 'upsize it' to adapt it to a scrapbook page... or the other way around.... grab a scrapbook page you love and shrink it down and adapt it to a card.

Show me what you end up creating ........ let's be inspired to be creative together. :)
