2015 Occasions Catalog SSINK Blog Hop

Who is ready for some hopping good fun with the designers at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration?  Today is our first Blog Hop for 2015 and we are so excited to be sharing projects using all new items from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog!
As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number #11 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop - Carrie at Carrie Stamps . If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.
One of my favorite stamp sets from the occasions catalog is "Sheltering Tree".  Don't get me wrong, I love Lovely as a Tree, but I love how you can change the trees toppings to make it a tree for any season.  I wanted to create a fun scrapbook page to get ready for some snow pictures. 
I used the large spotted tree background to stamp in coastal cabana to represent cool colors or snow.  I then stamped a few small speckles in whisper white ink and heat embossed with white powder to add some fluttering snowflakes.  Of course I had to use the new DSP paper pack and accessory pack of buttons and ribbon to accessorize the page.  These two items are items from the new
Sale-a-Bration catalog.  You know, those lovely items that you can earn for FREE when you place an order of $50. 

Up close of the left hand side page.  I added three 4x6 photo mats on this side....

and two on the right side.  I love creating two page layouts!
