February Earning Alaska Blog Hop

Hello stampers and hoppers. Welcome to another Earning Alaska Blog Hop. I am so glad that you are here! This month we are sharing our favorites from Sale-A-Bration and the Occasions Catalog.

Hey Chick stamp set from Stampin' Up along with the Dynamic Hexagon embossing folder. Fantastic pairing! Fine more inspiration at www.faithgracestamp.com

The Sale-A-Bration set Hey Chick paired with the Dynamic Textures Hexagon folder are a perfect pairing. I love how when the folder is lightly inked it can appear like chicken wire.  The main images was colored using our new Watercolor Pencils, which are now back in stock. Grab them while you can, because supplies will run low again before the next shipment arrives!

Now it’s time to hop along to Libby and see what she has for us!

Thanks for hopping by today. I would love to know that you think of my card, and subscribe to my blog so that you never miss another post!

Spring Catalog Must Have’s – Part One!

Welcome back to another fantastic Blog Hop with the amazing gals I am working with this year to the Alaska Incentive Trip with Stampin’ Up! I am so glad you are here. This month we are sharing our first Must-Have’s from the new Occasions Catalog. There are so many great options and it was hard for me to decide what to purchase first.

I decided on the Lift Me Up Bundle, found on page 10 of the catalog. I was able to also earn the coordinating DSP available during Sale-A-Bration and used both of them on my project.

A fun 3-D items made using the Up and Away thinlits and coordinating DSP from Stampin' Up! Find more inspiration at www.faithgracestamp.com

I really loved the project example but I didn’t have the clear boxes so I decided to use my Gift Box punch board to make a box instead. I just folded the top flaps inward and glued then down. It was a faitly quick project using the precision plate with the big shot and the great tools and adhesives Stampin’ Up! offers.

Now it’s time to keep hoping along to Jayme’s blog and see what she has for you!
