Hello Annual Catalogue 2016-2017 Week 4 - Nice and Simple

Welcome to the Hello! Annual Catalogue 2016-2017 Blog Hop. You'll be hopping around 10 amazing Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator's Blogs, each with an Inspirational Project, featuring new catalogue products.

Currently you're visiting Mikaela Titheridge from Cambridgeshire, UK, Hello there! You can continue hopping by using the next and previous buttons at the bottom of this post, but first take a look here at what I've been making to share with you. 

This year seems a year for 25th Wedding Anniversaries with my Brother's and at least 5 other friends that I can think of, Love really is in the air right now.

I sought some colour inspiration before picking up the Sunshine Sayings Stamp set and Framelit Bundle and started to play. 

It's so easy sometimes to over think a design, when in actual fact, a 'Nice and Simple' design can often be the most effective. 

I used the stripes from Playful Backgrounds, before simply layering up the die cut images. 

I just love these words … so fitting for a 25th Wedding Anniversary and with these colours, so very cheerful.

I hear hubby and I say this all the time, like some competition of who loves the other more. 

I couldn't decide what colour to use on the previous cards and when I saw what was left before me, I saw an additional card coming together using the remaining die cut words. I really like how scraps created this. 

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you found what I had to share inspiring. Please now hop on over to the very talented and gorgeous Louise Sharp to see what beautiful creation she has to share. There's lots of inspiration to be found in this group, that you'll not want to miss out on .. so I hop you'll enjoy!
