ILWS New Annual Catalogue 2013 Blog Hop!

Hello and a huge warm welcome to the ILWS Blog Hop to showcase ideas and products from the fantastic 2013 Annual Catalogue, which is jam-packed full of exciting crafting goodies for you all.
If you have been hopping through the blogs, you should have arrived from Emily's blog. Aren't her designs great? She used my favourite Chalk Talk set. Now, frustratingly,. I haven't been able to load the photos I wanted to share with you, so I will share these ones instead.

Not my best effort I know, but here we go.  Now we've had a busy month of Family occasions  with my two eldest Sons and daughter-in-laws. I thought I'd share some of the cards I've made. A word of warning though - think Punch Art and Shoes!!!!

It was the birthdays of the newly wed couples.First it was Nathan's birthday, so I used the stamp set Rev it Up!  I know it's scruffy looking, but it is very relevant to Nathan hee hee!

Now this card is perfect for all shoe lovers!!!!  A few days later, the next birthday was my lovely new Daughter-in-law Katie and I knew this card had to be the one for her as it's a beautiful SHOE, using brushed silver card, Fabulous You stamp set and heat embossed with silver embossing powder. I really love the elegance of this card.

This card was for Daniel & Anne  (my eldest Son & Daughter-in-law) who have just moved out of the city to their first home in the country. If you pull the roof out, you can read the message inside the house. The white envelope ties in with the card.
I used the instructions from the Moving House tutorial created by the talented  Lori Heiling on Ustampwithdawnandfriends blog hop back in 2011.

Now this is not from the new Catalogue, but I'm sharing it as I did make it at the same time. A few days later it was Anne's birthday, so I made this card for her using up a few left over pieces from the Spring/summer catalogue and a well-used shoe template I had purchased many years ago.I know this is not from the new catalogue, but am sharing it purely because I made it in July with the other cards.

Daniel and Anne have also just celebrated their first Wedding Anniversary. I thought I'd make this Punch Art Card I'd seen here on Pinterest as they both love VW's and other classic cars. Daniel rescued a very old VW bug that had been cut in half and turned into a BBQ trailer.This card uses some of the gorgeous new in-colours Stampin' Up! have just released for 2013-15 and also the new stamp set Label Love and matching punch.

2 of Daniel and Anne's cars they used on their Wedding day last summer.
The last occasion was Daniel's 30th Birthday which again due to being short of time, I made another Punch Art card (notice a trend here?) Up until life took over, he was addicted to playing Angry Birds for a long time, so when I came across this card on a lovely blog, I knew this was for him. It appealed to his sense of humour.

Now at the last second, I've managed to load the photos I wanted to share with you, so will show you them  tomorrow! Is that okay? It's worth coming back for a visit.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you have been inspired by my busy month of family cards. Please call by my blog again soon. I'm working on a printer's tray in the new In-colours, but haven't managed to finish it today, so hopefully can share this next week.
