It’s a Blog Hop & Pattern Party!

blog hop

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for July 2016.  This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper as well as coordinating embellishments. What we love about Stampin’ Up! is they make it so easy to mix and match colors. And, the amazing selection of embellishments provides a wonderful finished look to our projects. 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.

  • I love the sweet color palette (Very Vanilla, Dapper Denim, Early Espresso, Emerald Envy) and design of these these two rich patterns from Stampin’ Up! Moroccan Designer Series Paper.

  • I adhered the Emerald Envy pattern to the Very Vanilla Medium Envelope flap and carefully snipped off the excess with my Paper Snips.  Here’s a video I shared previously with my best snipping tips.
