BLOG HOP: Pals Too Cool For School August Hop

Pals August Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for August. This month we are showing off our favorite crafting tools – those Stampin’ Up! tools that we just can’t live without. We hope you enjoy our projects!

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from stop #24, Sherrie Gross at Stampin’ Sunshine on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

My “gotta have it” tool right now is the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. This versatile punch is a tremendous value, because it can be used in so many different ways. Don’t let the name fool you, it’s not just for making tags! Here are five projects I’ve made recently using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.

If you’d like a little more detail about each project, I’ve made a short video highlighting each one.

Did you notice the cute little Scalloped Tag Topper Punch treat carton? You will be amazed at how easy it is to make the carton using your Stampin’ Trimmer, the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and a little adhesive. The hardest part will be giving it away because it’s just so stinkin’ cute! Since it’s back to school season, wouldn’t it be a special gift to send your child to school with a small gift or treat for their new teacher? My oldest will be heading to a new preschool this year (why do they grow up so fast??) and I will be doing just that. It’s never too early to show gratitude to those who are part of our “village,” helping to nurture our sweet little ones. Who can you see yourself giving a Scalloped Tag Topper Punch treat carton to? Let me know in the comments, I bet you all have some great ideas! Below you can view my Scalloped Tag Topper Punch Treat Carton tutorial so you can learn to make your own. Be sure to subscribe to my blog and YouTube channel so you don’t miss any new ideas for the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch!


The next stop is #26 (Kalyn Shubnell at The Stamping Chronicles) on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you next month.

Glitter Ombré Video Tutorial

Glitter Ombré Tutorial

FINALLY! I recorded the footage for this tutorial so long ago it seems like it’s been a lifetime, probably because we’ve had half a lifetime’s worth of crazy happening. Since my last post, my husband and I have celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary, bought a house, packed up the old house, moved into the new house, planned and executed a joint 3rd/1st firefighter birthday party for my boys, and saw my husband off for a “long trip,” as my little man calls it. As in 6 months long. I think I’m hitting my groove now, thank goodness!

Are you looking to spice up your projects with a fresh technique? If so, you’ve come to the right place! I have a video tutorial for you today that showcases 2 techniques. The first I call “Well Worn Stamping Off” and the second I call “Watercolor Wipe”. Change up the colors to suit your taste or to what you have on hand. Take a few minutes to watch the clip and then go try them out for yourself! I would love to see your creations if you’re inspired, please feel free to post a photo on my Facebook page!
