August Pals Blog Hop: Cut It Out



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 feature 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.


I imagined a sideways card with a circle cut out on the right side and my sentiment peeking out from the inside and some kind of floral arrangement because of our CUT theme. But this card didn't come out the way I first imagined, yet I love it!

The floral arrangement easily created using the Everyday Jars Framelits and my Big Shot was much better suited to a tall card. This is the first time I used Vellum Card Stock as a jar, I believe, but it made sense with a Crumb Cake card base. Those stems stamped on the base were supposed to be "in" the base, but here they ended up looking like the stems that I didn't use in my arrangement.


I added a little Wink of Stella on the darks parts of my blooms for a little shine. Also, my dragonfly has sparkling wings and body, too!

I hope you loved seeing my creation! Please use my Online Store any time you are going to order Stampin' Up!
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”.
