Pals Blog Hop - Too cool for school
Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for August. This month we are showing off our favorite crafting tools - those Stampin' Up! tools that we just can't live without. We hope you enjoy our projects!

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Sue Becker at RnR Stamping #1 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

 My favorite tool are the new Blendabilities! These exclusive, alcohol-based marker sets come in a 3-pack of light, medium and dark shades (of the same color), and provide your projects a more saturated look with blended colors. We recommend using Stampin' Up! Whisper White Cardstock and  Memento Ink with your Stampin' Up! Blendabilities, but choosing any one of our cardstocks will add a unique look to your project.

What Sets Them Apart:
  • The Stampin' Up! rectangular barrel keeps your markers from rolling away!
  • Flat storage helps to maintain the life of each marker.
  • Each marker comes with a tip on each end: brush and fine. 
  • Marker tips are made of nylon, which is superior to polyester which can fray.
  • Color coded caps.
  • Stampin' Up! markers coordinate wonderfully with our cardstock, and can be used with transparent sheets.

The next stop is Susan Lankford at Stamp and Create With Susan  #3 on the Pals Blog Hop and I know Susan will have something fabulous creation to share! Thanks for visiting and  I hope to see you next month.
