Hello Friends! 

It's Thursday and this week at Pals Paper Arts we have this great sketch created by the very talented Nicole Watt. We can't wait to see your creation in our gallery! So grab your stamps and play along with us this week.

  • I used the Best Day Ever Stamp Set that is FREE during Sale-A-Bration with a $50 purchase.
  • I love the design in this Night of Navy DSP in the Birthday Bash Designer Series Paper collection.

  • There are so many wonderful new products in the Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs! If you currently don't have a demonstrator, contact me today:

    The Stamp Review Crew: Valentine Free For All!

    Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop! We are featuring Stampin' Up! projects for Valentine's Day. We hope you enjoy our creations!

    You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from #11 Shana Gaff on the Stamp Review Crew 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. 

    • I cased this project from Stampin' Up!s blog. 

    • I started with the Large Craft Journal and  stamped the images with the new Butterfly Basics stamp set from the Occasions catalog and embellished with the Artisan Embellishment Kit also from the Occasions catalog.

    • I'm loving the new Berry Basket Bigz L Die! Here's another Berry Basket I made using heavy weight black chipboard.
    • I lined the inside with Real Red card stock and doilies.
    • I made the flower using Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die in Whisper White and Real Red card stock with a pearl for the center. Dazzling Details on the petals adds a little sparkle.

    The next stop is #13 Martha Inchley on the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop and I know he will have something fabulous to show you! Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you next time.

    Pals Blog Hop: Hello Occasions!

    Welcome to the first Pals Blog Hop of 2015. We hope your new year is off to a great creative start. To celebrate the start of a new Stampin' Up! year, we are showcasing products from our newest catalog this month - the Occasions catalog. You may also see new Sale-a-bration products too. If you don't know how to earn free Sale-a-bration products - contact your Stampin' Up! demonstrator to learn more.

    You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from #23 Kim Jolley at Stampin' Artfully. Use the full lineup below to move along from blog to blog so you see all of the new projects.

    •  One of my favorite products from the Occasions catalog is the new Berry Basket Bigz L Die #137366. I knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it. I love it! 
    • I made this basket from Coaster Board #129392. It's thinner than chipboard, but studier than cardstock.
    • It was easy to assemble with a little Multipurpose Liquid Glue and my Tiny Handheld Stapler #139083.

    •  I'm making these Berry Baskets for several teachers for Valentine's Day. So if you follow my blog, you'll be seeing more of these.

    • I took advantage of the You Plus Me Stamp Set and the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack Bundle and saved 15%.

    The next stop is #25 Michelle Gleeson at StampinMojo  on the Pals Blog Hop! I know Michelle will have something very special to share with you. Thanks for visiting and I'll see you next month.
