Pals Blog Hop – Our Favorite Year End Season!


Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for September 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month our projects represent our favorite year end season. It may be Autumn, Winter, Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas (or even a combination!) 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.stampin-up-jolly-hat-builder-punch-christmas-card-idea-mary-fish-stampinup

Christmas is one of my favorite seasons, especially for making handcrafted cards!  Today’s card is highlighted by the adorable santa hat created with the Jolly Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set and Jolly Hat Builder Punch (on the list of My Favorite Things from the Holiday Catalog).  Purchase them together as a bundle and save 10%!

  • I love it!  The Mini Jingle Bell at the end of the hat rings in the holidays in a clever way!
  • I used the Layering Circles Framelits Dies for the sentiment.  The sweet scallops really speak to me!


  • Seeing stars!  A simple black star pattern on Crumb Cake  (Warmth & Cheer Designer Series Paper) is the perfect background.

  • The “ho ho ho” sentiment is from the Oh, What Fun Photopolymer Stamp Set.
