Occasions Mini Sneak Peek: Designer Cuts

Hi there!

Today I opened up my box of Occasions Mini pre-order goodies (one of my favorite perks for being a demo is getting things early to play with!)  I don’t want to spoil the surprises for you when you get your mini in the mail but a little peek is fun, right?

I can’t make videos for all the new things until it officially goes LIVE on January 4th but I can make something and take a picture to share!  This one went together in minutes….

I’m in LOVE!  These are called  Designer Cuts and they are an item in the Occasions Mini catalog under Cards & Envelopes Set.   The cards are laser cut and I was thrilled to see it was ready to go, which means I didn’t have to poke out all the itty bitty pieces from the cuts.  in Very Vanilla with Blushing Bride envelopes.  I cut the front of the vanilla laser cut card and then cut it down 1/8″ on all sides to adhere it to the front of a Blushing Bride Card. 

The DSP is new also, called Twitterpated, which has this Blushing Bride pattern.   I adhered a 2″ strip across the top .  Then I added the NEW 3/8″ Pleated Satin Ribbon in Blushing Bride (which is so pretty and no bows!!) across the middle. 

The greeting is also a sneak peek from the mini called Loving Thoughts, which has so many pretty sentiments you will use over and over. 

Here is a close up of the delicate card details:

Oh, forgot to tell you about the big pearls, too!  Those are new!

Must go unpack the rest of my goodies so happy stamping!

  9. I love this idea,,, and I completely see a 2 for 1 in this idea. However do you have a sample or idea on what you did with the leftover part of this card so I can get 2 different cards out of 1? I hope that makes sense.
