Oh, Gnomeo! (Occasions Sneak Peek!)

I got to see the upcoming Occasions catalog a few weeks ago and went CR-A-ZY! So, two days ago I received my pre-order (demo perk-woot!) and have been going wild!

My very favorite stamp set in the new catalog is called Gnome Sweet Gnome. I love garden gnomes and in fact, Hubbs and I dressed up as Gnomeo and Juliet for Halloween! So, I printed out this picture and got to work!
 First off, I have to point out this DSP. It's in the Sale A Bration catalog coming out in January! It's BEAUTIFUL and probably one of my very favorite papers EVER from SU. And, the best part...It's FREE during Sale A Bration!
 Ok, so seriously! Look at these little Gnomes! Love. Them.
And check out the shape. Yes, that's a a NEW DIE! Ok, not a die, but a flat little framelit. It's a new product to SU, and I am so excited about them! They come in a set of different sizes. And they are FLAT. Yes.. FLAT!
Oh, and I almost forgot to mention the pin. Have I mentioned I am excited in this post?? Ok, yes, but I am super excited about these! they are long hat pins, which I have been using for a while, but SU didn't have any. And these are perfect. They are long, which I love!
 I used Letter, it for the G and sizzlits for the other letters. the heart is another Framelit! LOVE!
 I did a lot of sewing on this page because it just felt like it needed some stitching!
 Pennant punch used on the Everyday Enchantment DSP. The lantern and watering can are from Gnome, Sweet Gnome and the little mushroom is from Funky Four. It's perfect to go along with the Gnomes! And, did you spy the new twine! Yep, new twine! In all the In Colors! Woot!
So there you have it! Lots of new stuff featured on this page. I still have more stuff to break into. Should I call into work tomorrow?? Ha! Just kidding... kinda....

I was inspired by this week's Color Q challenge and Sketchy Thursday sketch.

Thanks for stopping by!
