Blogging Friends June Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Blogging Friends Blog Hop".

Who are the "Blogging Friends"? We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada who have never met before. Well, actually, we still haven't met yet (in person)... But through our common bond of Stampin' Up! and a shared love of paper crafting, we have created a fun new blog hop. Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created.

Each month we'll have a different theme: this month it's using New Catalog Products

Welcome to June! Today is the day Stampin' Up! releases the 2017 - 2018 Annual Catalog!!!! I've had it in my hands for almost 2 months (thank you OnStage Richmond!) and have been impatiently waiting for this day to arrive so I can order anything I want and not be limited to a certain preorder list. Don't get me wrong, I loved being able to create with my pre-ordered items but sometimes it's good to have new to refresh your thoughts and creations.

I was inspired by the photo I found on Pinterest. Not surprised? With the amount of time I spend on Pinterest I should work for them. Ha. So can you guess what stamp set/bundle I'll be showing you? If you guessed the Daisy Delight bundle you are correct! Believe me, this bundle is really popular in the demonstrator community and is now available for you to purchase.

The fine tip glue pen was used to give the look of the raindrops or morning dew. I just love how the colors pop off the Basic Black Petal Burst embossed background.

The inside is pretty plain with enough room to write your message and then another blue daisy on the bottom left corner (without the dew drops).

I'm going to save the other Daisy Delight bundle creations for future posts. So stay tuned to see those or subscribe to my blog posts on the left hand side. I thought it would be fun to show off another bundle in the catalog. This card is featuring the At Home With You Bundle. I don't know what drew me in the door, the accessories or both but I had to have it in my stamping stash.

The embossed brick wall was creating a perfect scene to place a door on a building. Added a few lanterns, a "for you" sign and a door mat too. What more could be added to adorable card? A hidden message. Yup, open the door and you'll see the sentiment. And here you thought awe that's cute wonder what the inside of the card says? Nothing at the moment until something great pops into my head.

In case you've never 'done' a blog hop before, its really easy! At the bottom of this post, you'll see another image similar to the one above, and when you click on it, you'll be taken directly to the next blog in the hop. Keep clicking on that image at the bottom of each blog post, and you'll hop through all the participating blogs, back to where you started - and you'll see all the amazing projects and maybe inspire you too! If you'd prefer to hop about at your leisure, you can click on the individual links for each blog. Happy Hopping!

We'd love if you would leave us some comments (aka - Blog Love) to let us know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by today.
