I had a challenge on Friday and I'm pleased that I accomplished my mission! What was it (I swear I heard you ask that)? Well, in the new Occasions Mini, we have border and corner punches that coordinate so you can make a decorative edge around the border of a piece of cardstock. I tried this the other night and failed, so in true Phyllis fashion, I put it aside to try again later. I watched a video from a fellow demonstrator and got some pointers so I felt a little better. So yesterday, I pulled out the punches and played. Oh gosh, my table is an absolute mess, but sometimes you have to make a mess to make some beautiful! Here is a card I made for a friend using some new products. Do you like the decorative edge? That is made using the Scallop Trim Corner from the Occasions Mini Catalog and the Scallop Trim Border Punch from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. See, you can get the Scallop Trim Border Punch FREE during Sale-A-Bration (January - March 2010) with a $50 purchase!! Gotta love that!

The border stamped on the top of the cardstock is from Abundant Hope (which I showed on a post two days ago). The word "Congratulations" is from the Well Scripted stamp set and lastly "4 you" is from the Tiny Tags stamp set. All three stamp sets are from the Occasions Mini. Do you like that little tag? The Tiny Tags set coordinates with the Medium Jewelry Tag punch!!! I'm so glad Stampin' Up! coordinates all these things to work together. It certainly makes my life easier!

I'll be sharing how to use the new border and corner punches in upcoming classes and workshops. They are da' bomb!!!!

Beautiful job on this Phyllis - Love the CAS look you achieved! Can't wait to have time to play with my preorder box. It's just sitting lonely in the corner for now......
