I'm so happy you had time to stop by my blog.  Today, we are showcasing new products from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Mini Catalog.

My first project today is a card made with items from both catalogs.

The awesome filmstrip is from the new On Film Framelits Dies in the Occasions Mini (#132969).  I used Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso and Whisper White card stock.  Embellishments include Early Espresso 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (126871) and Hung Up Cute Clips (129389).

The See Ya Later stamp set (133536) and Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (133520) are both from the Sale-a-bration Catalog.  The stamped imaged was colored with Always Artichoke and Early Espresso Markers.  I also sponged some Always Artichoke ink over the embossed card stock to help those dots pop.  
 My second project uses my favorite new die and other fun new products.  This is a cute gift wedding gift bag.
The bag was made from a sheet of our Silver Fancy Foil Designer Vellum (133364).  This comes in gold as well, but I'm partial to silver.  I trimmed the vellum down to 12" x 11" and scored the 11" side at 2-1/2" & 8-1/2", then 4-3/4" and 7-1/4" on the 12" side.  Cut the side flaps and assemble with Sticky Strip.  The finished dimensions of the bag are 4-3/4" high, 6" wide and 2-1/2" deep.  Perfect for giving cards or other gifts.  

I used our Silver 1/8" Ribbon for the handles and tag.  

A quick view of the back.

My favorite part of this project is the tag! I used the new Angled Tag Topper Punch (133323) with our Silver Foil Sheets (132178) to make the tag base.  The flower was made using my new favorite Spiral Flower Die (129379) and Whisper White card stock.  The sentiment is from the Love & Laughter stamp set (125477) and is stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed in Silver on our regular Vellum Card Stock.  A few Rhinestone Jewels finish it off.  
Don't you love how our product coordinate so well?!!  When you give a wedding gift, you need to give a card as well, so here's the matching card and my 3rd project for today:

I also used the Love & Laughter stamp set on this card and it's from our main catalog.  We have a wonderful new wedding set in the Occasions catalog which is on my wish list - Perfect Couple (133197) which is also wonderful for anniversary projects.  

I used a little of the scrap vellum from the bag, some Silver Glimmer Paper and Silver ribbon.  The wedding cake is embossed in silver and a few rhinestones on the top add the finishing touch.
