Pals Blog Hop: Families First

Welcome to the Families First Pals Blog Hop for April 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that are all about our families. This is a great time of year to think about what to make for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or upcoming graduations. And, family vacations are just around the corner… how would you want to remember those special family moments? We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations. You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

A family begins with love and that is what my project is about, a Bride-t0-Be frame for a special lady who got engaged a few days ago.  This lovely gift/project is so easy to make too! Literally, you just stamp, run through Big Shot, stamp and adhere to the designer series paper and boom…all done!  It’s cute and oh so adorable, I know any bride-to-be would love this.  I added tiny butterflies from the Perpetual Birthday Stamp set because my friend loves butterflies and they added a little personalization.

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

Stamp, Ink, Paper: Color Challenge

Today’s Celebrate card is for the weekly Stamp Ink Paper color challenge.  This card will go into the #ImBringingBirthdaysBack 2017 stack.  However, I must admit…I’ve gotten a little behind.  So most of the cards, for February have become Belated Birthday cards.  Nevertheless, they will go out and for each card that is late I’m putting a little treat inside each card.

As I say each week, my Stamp Ink Paper teammates have a talent that is out of this world!  Their design can be duplicated and made your own.  You can also enter one of your cards and enjoy sharing your card with the world.  

The Details:

  • Banner.  The CELEBRATE banner is not a die-cut, it’s a snip cut (LOL).  After it was stamped the scissors were used to create the banner.  I followed the curve of the letters and cut a V from corner to corner on each side.  It came out better than I thought it would.

Use Host Code above and receive a gift from me when you place an on-line order via my on-line store.  Do not use if your order is more than $150. You will receive additional Host Reward and you’ll automatically receive a gift from me.

FREE PRODUCT with PURCHASE.  For every $50 spent (before tax/shipping) you earn free Sale-a-bration items.  Click on each catalog to view either the Occasions catalog or the free items in Sale-a-bration.

 <—Occasion Catalog!    <—Free Product  <—Free Product

FREE SHIPPING?  You can do this each time a new seasonal catalog is introduced.  You’ll NEVER ever have to make any sales and you just let your membership expire.  Three ways steps:  

  1. Join as a hobby demonstrator when you want to place an order that equals $99.
  2. Stampin’ Up! will literally GIVE YOU an additional $26 in product…WHATEVER you want for only $99.
  3. …and most important! FREE shipping.

There’s no risk, no obligation to purchase anything further and no penalty to drop!  Why not give Stampin’ Up! and my Circle of Pals a test drive and start building your $99 Starter Kit here.

Kind Regards,
Maggie

Stamp Ink Paper: Wonderful Wings

Butterflies

Today’s card is a colorful one and it represents ‘wonderful wings’.  I have loved butterflies my whole life and each time Stampin’ Up! releases a butterfly set, that’s right, I buy it!

SIP #63

Hope you join the Stamp Ink Paper team this week and come up with something with ‘Wonderful Wings’.

Stamp Ink Paper #63

The Details:

  • Ornament Die Cut Butterfly.  I used one of the ornament die-cut’s (white arrow below) .  I trimmed it to the shape of butterfly wings and cut it in half.  The butterfly body, in basic black ink came from Watercolor Wings as well as the antennas.
