Pals Blog Hop: Winter Wishes

Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for December; we are thankful you stopped by.  This month we are showcasing projects that feature Stampin’ Up! products that should be on everyone’s wish list. We hope 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.

Get Well

As my Winter Wishes recommendation, I very HIGHLY suggest you get two of the up and coming sets from Sale-a-bration next month.  The first is Greatest Greetings because it’s a KEEPER due to the 15 different sentiments for every occasion in the year!  The other is the Rose Garden Thinlits Die. Oh-em-Gee!!! You are going to flip when you see the stamp set that matches.  You’re going to save a bundle when you pair it with the bundle (LOL).  

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

Pals April 2012 Blog Hop: Babies and Children

Oh, Baby!  It’s time for the Pals Blog Hop!  Today the Stampin’ Pretty Pals are sharing some fabulous cards and projects for babies and children that we think you’ll enjoy!  You’ve probably hopped over from Nakaba Rager at My Stampin’ Blog, I’m stop number 4 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 paper projects for babies and children from the Stampin’ Pretty Pals! 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

This card is not one of my ‘orignal’ creations, it has been around for quite awhile, but this is my version of the baby carriage.  I have never used so many punches ever and this card required use of seven different punches, to include my 17 year old’s protractor.  I made two four inch circles and folded them in half leaving space to write two messages in each.  The diaganol plate came in handy too… it’s what I used to score the lines on the hood.

MaggieMade Tip:  Don’t ever get stuck buying tons of different colored rhinestones to match your projects… buy the clear ones and simply use a colored Sharpie to color them in.  In the long run, you save money.

Now hop along for more inspiring ideas from Marian Kay at All Aboard the Crafting Train, stop number 5 on the Babies and Children Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for “hopping” by!
