Sneak Peak of A Walk to Remember

This is a sneak peak of the new products coming in the Occasions Mini catalog which will be released on April 1st! This amazing Designer paper is " A Walk to Remember" I love it it reminds me of the movie with Keanu Reeves. The love story about the girl in vineyard and her Papa was real old fashioned and they made wine and danced in grapes smushing them with their feet in the big barrels dancing and singing, ooohhh what a romantic movie! Well this paper has that effect on you. I was very inspired to create with it even with this tricky illness I have. One day great, next day not so great!!

So much for that! On to the details!!

This card was inspired by Mary Fish at
I received my new Circle Scissors Cutter and it is fabulous!! The best circle cutter on the market and believe me I have tried them all. It takes some practice. Perseverance definitely a must with this tool!
**Helpful Hints my blogger buddy passed on to me. Put a piece of colored CS underneath the glass mat so you can read the inches across from the centimeters. I could not see the inches and all there was was cm and I was freaked out!But you can see the inches to dial into to cut your circles from anywhere to 6". Make sure to put dotto on the top of the glass mat to hold the paper your cutting in place while you spin the cutter. Before pressing down to cut always spin your cutter knob around (without pressing down) to make sure you have enough room for your circle or if you need to adjust it.

OOOOH La La Fifth Avenue is where I want to be!

This card uses the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp set
Card stock: Pink Pirk, Baha Breeze, Basic Grey Designer paper
I used the NEW Manhattan texture impressions die, then I sanded the raised impression it made with my sanding block and since designer paper is not dyed all the way through it gives it a bleached effect. This will not work with our standard card stock which is dyed all the way through and will not have the same effect when sanded. Then I took my two way glue pen and used dazzling diamonds to top it off. The sentiment is the NEW scallop oval punch (all coming in the mini in April) in Baha on white with The NEW Oval All stamp set also coming backed by the largest oval punch in the current catty stamped in baha breeze ink. I also used the pink pirk 5/8" ribbon.
This card is absolutely gorgeous in person.
I cased this card from my new blogger friend Mary Fish and added a few changes of my own.
Her work is amazing and so is she! You can visit her blog at:
I made this box to match my card using my Big Shot with the #2 box extended die cut!
With the NEW Good Friend stamp set also featured in the New Occasions mini catalog that will be available on April 1st. I love the beautiful Pink Pirk 1 1/2"(i think) ribbon tied around it!
