Welcome to the August 2017 Pals’ Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out.” Participants will be featuring projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits. Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
Today I’ve got a cute little pocket you can use any time of the year, but for our purposes today I was thinking along the lines of a project you could put together quickly and send to school with your kids to give as a gift for your favorite teachers. Fortunately, no fingers were harmed in the making of this project, which is why I’m happy that the only paper cuts achieved were with the proper tools!
What I love about the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper here is that it can be used for anyone, since it’s a neutral green. I decided to use Emerald Envy for my stamping so it would stand out. After all, those little stitches are just too cute! This project goes together fairly easily, since the Pocket Framelits do most of the work.
The sentiment, from the Eastern Beauty stamp set, looks really cute on the Whisper White circle, whose stitches mirror those of the pocket.
And the shred? Easy: I made it with my Stampin’ Trimmer and some scraps of Emerald Envy!
The finishing touch: a sweet little bow in Lemon Lime Twist. If you haven’t worked with this finely woven ribbon, in the new Annual Catalog, I highly recommend you do so.
Now just add a mini pen and a Starbucks gift card. And there you have it! As always, if you want to find the Stampin’ Up! products I’ve shown you today, just look for the product list at the end of this post, right after the Blog Hop line-up.
Now get out there and do something creative today. P.S. Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on September 13, 2017. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We’d love to hear what you have to say about our creative “Cuts.”
