August Pals "Holiday Catalog" Blog Hop

Follow Me on Pinterest

Glad you could join us for some holiday crafting with the Stampin' Pretty Pals! You've probably hopped over from Lynn Hoyt at Cattail Designs, I'm stop number 2 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for Stampin' Up! projects featuring the new Holiday Catalog! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

Making a project for this month's hop was easy...choosing which product to use from such a wonderful holiday catalog was not!! In the end, for me it always boils down to versatility. Can I use the product after the various holidays/seasons have past? The answer is yes! 


The Designer Paper I have featured today is from the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper and it is just fabulous. A great fall pattern on one side and an all-occasion or fall pattern on the reverse! That is a win, win in my book! I have also highlighted a new stamp set called Friendship Preserves and the matching Window Framelits Dies. And if that isn't enough matchy matchy for you, I have also used the Festive Paper Piercing Pack! What a great set of templates!! And SO easy to use! A simple embellishment using the new 7/8" Stampable Cotton Ribbon topped off with some linen thread and one of the new Brushed Bronze Designer Buttons, so pretty! The idea for the ribbon, linen thread and button was taken straight from page 29 of the Holiday Catalog! Not just for shopping, there is SOOO much inspiration on every page! Love, love this catalog :)

Quick and easy AND fun! One quick design note...I layered the pierced piece of So Saffron onto the base so the inside of the card would be prestine.
