Spring mini sampler

 I've seen several sampler cards online so decided to make one this month in my classes.  This one uses so many of our new "toys" from the spring mini and the Sale-a-bration (SAB) mini.

I used the 1-1/4" square punch to punch out the squares.  The colors used are Island Indigo, Pool Party, and Tangerine Tango.  I used designer paper from the Patterns stacks.
Here is a close up of some of the squares.  The button is a freebie you can earn along with ribbon from the SAB catalog when you purchase $50 from one of our other catalogs.  The scallop circle under the button is a new punch The little flower and center are from the Madison Avenue, also a freebie from SAB.  The scallop circle under the button is the 7/8" scallop circle punch in the spring mini.  Those brackets are a stamp from SAB set Pretty Petites.  And the small butterfly is a punch in the spring mini. I just loved playing with my new toys.
Here is another close-up of two squares.  This 1-1/4" scallop circle punch was in the Holiday Mini and is still available.  I punched the top layer of it from designer paper in the International Bazaar series.  See the embossing on that pool party square? It is a new embossing folder, Vine Street, available as a freebie during SAB.   Lot of  fun stuff here!

The possibilities of these samplers are endless.  You can select any color combo and put any shapes, stamps and designer paper on your squares.  Just lots of fun to see what you can turn out!

Thanks for stopping in!!
