Party Pandas Meet Tutti Frutti

Happy 2018!! It's the start of a new year and that also means the start of the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs!! Yay!!

As my time with the Artisan team has ended, I hope to still continue to blog as much as I did last year and to try to get some more classes on the calendar this year. 2017 was an interesting year for me. I had the great honor to be picked for the Artisan Design team. So while that was super exciting, I was also going through some rough patches in my full time job. I was laid off twice from the same company. Laid off in February and was given 12 weeks to find a new job - internal or external. I accepted an internal position in June only to be laid off again in October. What rotten luck, haha!!!  Luckily I was given another 12 weeks to find something and I am happy to say that I have found a new position that I am excited about. So while there was a lot of uncertainty last year, it did give me some of the extra time I needed to commit fully to the Artisan adventure. I guess in some ways everything worked out good.

So with that little recap on me, I have some super cute cards to show you. I am kicking off 2018 with the adorable Party Pandas from the Sale-a-bration catalog. Pandas are my favorite animal so this set was a must have! I decided to pair them with the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes also from the SAB catalog. I punched 4 starburst circles in Gold glimmer paper and added them to each card. I kept the cards/layouts fairly simple. The complicated part was cutting those pandas but since I like cutting it wasn't too bad.

I thought this little guy would be a cute Valentine's card. A fun thing to note is the heart framelit from Up and Away fits the "Love You" sentiment perfectly. I finished off the card with some Subtle enamel shapes. I used the subtle shapes on all the cards. You could use the Tutti Frutti sequins from the Occasions catalog if you don't have the enamel shapes. 

The next guy is ready for a birthday party! The sentiment fits perfectly in the Classic Label punch. (Another must have punch). All of the pandas have a little shading on them, done with the Light Smoky Slate blend marker. I also colored the party balloon with the markers too.

The birthday panda is back again but this time he just wants to say Hi. :) And if you notice I didn't use the matching envelopes with the cards. I thought it looked super fun to match up them with one of the other envelopes from the stack. And how cute are in the insides of these envelopes!

Last up is another guy who's ready to party!! So what do you think of the new SAB goodies and Occasions catalog. What are your favorites??
