Stampin' Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop You're My Type

update April 2013/ sorry folks! The images seem to have disappeared!

Welcome to the hop, folks! This weekend, the Stampin' Addicts have 16 stops of ideas and inspiration for you. We are showcasing new offerings from the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog including some of the stamp sets and tools you will find in this, our latest mini catalog. We are all linked together, so whether you are starting here or have arrived from Mickey's amazing blog, just click through the links provided and you will make your way around the hop.

The new stamp set I'm sharing with you today is called You're my Type. This set contains a retro typewriter image along with six sentiments in the perfect font. It really looks like what you would get when you typed with these machines. (Yes, I'm dating myself....) Onto the projects:

First, here's a simple Thank You card to show you how easily the sentiments fit inside our Four Frames stamp set. The Frames are easy to cut out with the coordinating Decorative Label punch, so making a batch of these will take hardly any time at all! (Note: the quilted ribbon shown here is from our Holiday Mini; I don't know if it will be offered again. Order from your demonstrator before Jan 3rd if you don't want to miss out on it!)

Next is a fun card sharing the typewriter, our new Framelits dies and lots of love! I used the negative of the die cut (what's left when you cut out your shape) as a frame for my image. If you look closely, you can see that the frame has a nice embossed line around it. (Click photo to enlarge.)

And last is a little somethin' I put together for my friend Jessica.  This little box is full of personalized notes created from printer paper. Her name was printed 4 to a sheet and then I cut them apart into 4" x 5 1/4" segments. The words "from the desk of" are from this stamp set and were stamped with Cherry Cobbler ink. You can see another sentiment, "a little note" on the paper coming out of the machine. Cute! I invite you to check back next week for a video tutorial showing how easily the box comes together.

I hope you have enjoyed this preview of our new set You're My Type. Next, we're on to Shelley's site and a new set called Mouthwatering featuring 4 summery treats. Can't wait to see what she has done with them! Click here to be directed to her post.
