2014 Occasions Catalog

Birthday Sampler: Minion Punch Art Video with Sampler Tips too!

Each Wednesday this month, I'll be featuring some fun projects to celebrate birthdays!  Why?  Because it's my birthday this month (the 18th, wink, wink)! 

First up is a Birthday Seasonal Sampler that I did with my DOstamperSTARS.  These are 2-1/4" squares that we swap with each other.  We did these last spring using products from the 2014 Occasions Catalog.  In May, I shared a different set of 9 squares (see Kaleidoscope Birthday Sampler), but I never shared the rest of the squares with you. The DSP is no longer available, but of course - the basic colors are.  There's also tons of inspiration from their clever punch art.  Plus - check out the Minion Punch Art square!

Seasonal Sampler Squares: Kaleidoscope Birthday Theme (you're gonna love it!)

Today I'm sharing a favorite of my customers.  They keep oohing and aahing over it It's the DOstamperSTARS latest birthday themed Seasonal Sampler Squares Swap.  The STARS went nuts for this theme and outdone themselves.  

First, here's one of my squares - Party Owl:

Like I said - the STARS outdid themselves this time.  I think you can see why my local customers are lovin' it.  Plus - the Kaliedoscope DSP is just perfect for the birthday theme...don't you think.  It's just so much fun to look at!

Kaleidoscope-DSP

Basic details of the Birthday Themed Seasonal Sampler:

  • 132995 Kaleidoscope DSP 2" squares (from Occasions Catalog - ending May 31st)
  • Mount onto 2-1/4" squares (coordinating colors include: Bermuda Bay, Strawberry Slush, Basic Black, Crushed Curry, Whisper White)
  • Mount onto 7-1/8" square of Whisper White
