Stylin' Stampin' Squad January Blog Hop

Thank you so much for joining us for our January Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop!  Love is in the air and our talented group of design team members have a Whole Lotta Love Goin' On as we are excited to be sharing some NEW Occasions Catalog goodies and some Valentine's Day projects with you this month!

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog!  We are always excited to hear from our followers!

You should have just left stop number 8 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad  blog hop Jamie H. of Unique Ink. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find  the full blog hop lineup below.

For my first project I decided to use one of my favorite sets from the Occasions Catalog, Happy Congratulations. It is such a cute set and I used the color pallet from the Fresh Prints DSP stack.

There are so many cute prints in the Fresh Prints DSP stack but I chose to use some of the polka dots sheet. I tend to lean toward polka dots when ever they are available because I love them. The card layout was something I saw on Google images, I failed to follow the link to see where it came from so I apologize for not having that info.

Items Used:
Stamp Set- Happy Congratulations
Paper- Fresh Prints DSP, Crumb Cake Card Stock, Real Red Card Stock, Coastal Cabana Card Stock
Ink- Real Red, Coastal Cabana, Crumb Cake, Basic Black

For my second project I decided to make a new Scrapbook page for my frame. I've had a Christmas page in there for a year now and I figured it was about time to update it with something more versatile since it is displayed in our living room.

I decided to make some of those fringe flowers with the new Fringe Scissors from the Occasions Catalog. Now these flowers are a little bulky so I probably wouldn't make them for a scrapbook page I was going to put in my scrapbook but since my frame is shadow box type of frame, it was worked just fine. I also used the Spiral Flower die to add some small flowers to the page. I love the colors and the combination of flowers. I planned to use a picture of my husband and I but I forgot to print it, so I used a picture of my boys with my niece and nephew. I love the way it turned out and it will be proudly displayed in my home for a while.

Items Used:
Stamp Set- Baby Prints
Paper- Fresh Prints DSP, Crumb Cake Card Stock, Real Red Card Stock, Coastal Cabana Card Stock
Ink- Real Red
Other- Big Shot, Fringe Scissors, Spiral Flower die, Large Rhinestones

Love the frame! I tried to make some of the fringe flowers last night & you did a great job covering up their bulkiness!

I love your frame and the flowers. I need to try a few flowers with the scissors and see what I think of them. Yours look great. Cute card too, I love the new paper pack.
