Tea for Two (Friends)

This is my favorite paper from the Spring StampinUP! catalogue.  The colors and the style make me feel warm and cozy.

Please visit my StampinUP! site at

The StampinUP! products for this album bill be availabe until 5/31/2013 and even though I am not finished with the album I wanted to make sure I posted my progress so far so you could take advantage of the products before they were no longer available.

 The paper is Tea for Two #129311
The charms are Tea Time Trinkets #129326
The trim is 5/8" Flower Trim in Vanilla #126869

I used Early Express ink #126974 for all my stamps and gold smooch spritz #118770

Stamps used (all clear sets):

Elements of Style #120045
Papillon Potpourri #123759
Tea Shoppe #125547
Layered Labels #127072

The album is constructed with paper bags and the spine, front and back are made from grunge board.

I hope you have enjoyed the project and take advantage of the products StampinUP! has to offer to create your own.

I will continue to post as it is completed.

Thank you for visiting!
I would also love it if you visited my blog and followed me!

Thank you for joining us for the May Pals Blog Hop and our annual retirement party! It's time to say goodbye to stamps and accessories that will not be available in the new 2013-14 Stampin' Up! catalog. Although it's always sad to see wonderful products retire, it is exciting to think about all of the new products that will soon be available. So enjoy the farewell tour for our favorite retiring products - and remember you have until June 3rd to order from the retiring product lists.
