When someone says the name Harry Potter, I’m sure most of you know immediately what they’re talking about. A beloved book series (and subsequent movie universe) that celebrated it’s 20th anniversary this past June! Today, for many of the potterheads out there, also marks Harry Potter’s 38th birthday. In celebration of this very Potter year I wanted to create a group of cards inspired by the four Houses of Hogwarts!
With the snow melting at last and spring peeking around the corner, I finally get inspired to stamp. This is the time of the year when we find out which of our favorite products will be retiring and to say goodbye some fun colors. When I got my sneak peek at the new 2018-19 Annual Catalog and I had only three words; I can’t wait! I am so excited for all the new goodies coming your way!
The day is finally here; the 2018 Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration have arrived and I feel like I could be dancing all around my stamp room! When I got to sneak a peek at these amazing products back in November I was in love. There are so many versatile and amazing sets, I wanted to buy the whole catalog right then and there. Not to mention the innovation that has gone into some of my favorite products. Today starts some of my favorite months in the Stampin’ Up! year. Sale-A-Bration lasts until March 31, 2018 and the Occasions Catalog goes all the way until May 31, 2018!
To kick off these next few months I wanted to challenge myself to create a group of cards around 1 color scheme. My go-to was black and white with a pop of color and some gold thrown in. Instead of going for one of my usual colors I decided to switch things up and use a color I almost never do. It even became one of my favorite colors I’ve ever used!
