2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop Occasions Catalog

Welcome to the 2018 Kre8tors Occasion Catalog Blog Hop.  I am so happy to be a Stampin' Up! demonstrator chosen to participate in this blog hop.  We are an international group of Stampin' up! Demonstrators that will be holding monthly blog hops this year.  This month our theme is the Occasion Catalog,  I just love this catalog and there are so many great things in the catalog it was hard to choose just one to highlight.  I finally choose Lovely Wishes.  I have done 3 projects for you and will include 3 videos of the projects.  Be sure that you visit all the other talented Stampin' Up! demonstrators and their blogs to see some of the great amazing products from this 2018 Occasion's Catalog.  The listing of all the Stampin' Up! Demonstrators participating and their blog links will be at the end of this post.  Happy Hopping
I will be showing you 3 cards with videos for this set.  I will also be showing you the new Stamparatus.  If you did not reserve the Stamparatus in December you will be able to purchase it in the new catalog in June. 
This first card I call Lovely Wishes Note Card.  Bet you can't figure out why.

Product List

So this next one I am using the new Narrow Note Cards.  Though you can not send them through the US mail I like them a lot.  So let's see this one.
This is called my Lovely Wishes Narrow Note Card.

Here are the supplies I used.

The next card is a full card and my favorite even though I love the simple one layer cards I really love this card.
