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.
