One of the new suites in the Occasions 2015 catalog that has most fascinated me is the From The Garden bundle (page 20, for those catty-watchers among us!) On the opposite page from THAT is the totally AWESOME new Berry Basket Bigz die. Don't tell hubby, but I seriously mobbed the UPS driver when he pulled up with this package, lol - he didn't even have to get out of the truck, I was RIGHT THERE at the curb waiting for him! It wasn't creepy, I swear!
The Handpicked framelit set that goes with this has so many more shapes than the stamp set, too - I'm a little hopeful that we might see additional gardening sets to go with, that would be so COOL! Yes, I still have high hopes for my gardens here, lol. I've even made it through two days in a row of frost - that what all those pool towels are really for, right??
ANYhow, I made up a quick trio of the baskets to have on hand for incidental gift-giving, with chummy flower-markers, too. (Hint: I did a backing in chipboard for those to make them a bit more substantial.) I envision adding a little token as I find them, and bagging the whole thing in a cello bag to keep it together. Hm, need a set of note cards to go with! Maybe tomorrow...

I'm so excited to announce our first class of the year - a super-fun version of the Perpetual Calendar Kit found on page 17 of your Occasions 2015 catalog!
This calendar features a custom decorated and lined sheet for each month, where you can pencil in all your birthday ticklers! I've added some simple goodies and tricks to make these kits shine even more, and you'll have lots of leftovers from the kit as well! Keep it for yourself, or box it up for a gift! A fun way to warm up for the year ahead!
So, class is announced for Thursday, January 15 at 6:30 pm, or Saturday, January 17 at 3:30 pm. $20 gets you all your supplies, including 1 complete kit, a special treat from me, and snacks and refreshments. RSVP now so I can make sure to have your kit waiting for you!
