Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for June. This month we are excited to show off new Stampin' Up! products from the just released 2015 - 2016 annual catalog. We hope you find great inspiration from the projects. Get your wish list ready!
You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Nancy Gleason at My Stamping Space, number 30 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 the projects.
Oh so many wonderful products, it was hard to choose items to feature, but I did manage to come up with one!
I LOVE the Designer Series Paper Stacks and in this catalog Stampin' Up! has provided an amazing treat - for each paper stack and DSP paper pack, you can purchase a coordinating pack of cardstock! Each cardstock pack contains 24 sheets of cardstock, 8 each of 3 colors. What a great way to have it all at without breaking the bank!
The Cherry on Top Designer Series Paper Stack is made for birthday giving and bright, summer cheer. I coupled it with the Big News and B.Y.O.P. stamp sets.
This card opens up to reveal a great holding spot for a gift card.
Are you wondering where the confetti dots came from? I used the brush tip end of my Stampin' Write markers - quick, easy way to add some fun to my project.
It's also graduation time of year and I thought you might enjoy a fast and fun design for a graduation gift holder. This card again features B.Y.O.P. and Be the Star stamp sets.
TIP: For those of you who are non-geometric, that would be me-I'll share my mortarboard pattern. The bottom is a 1 3/8 circle punch with the bottom trimmed off. I then cut a piece of Basic Black at 2 1/2 x 1 1/2. On one side I drew intersecting lines down the middle of the long and short side of the CS and trimmed the CS, cutting from center line to center line, trimming off the corners.
This sentiment from B.Y.O.P. is perfect for a gift of cash - something no one is likely to turn down.
TIP: To make this gift card holder, cut your cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11. Score it at 5 1/2 and 9. Fold on your score lines and secure the pocket with Tear and Tape Adhesive, another great new product. This comes together in minutes!
I hope you enjoyed my projects and the tips. I love reading your comments, so please feel free to share your thoughts!

You may have read this blog somewhere along the line that I am one of those who has a stash of DSP that has not been used because, well, I don't know why and that's part of the problem! Before my stamping friends involved me in an intervention, I started pulling out DSP packs and creating. Over the course of the next couple days, I'll share my projects with you. WARNING: the DSP is vintage, but the projects will work with all of the beautiful NEW DSP packs in the new catalog! You've likely seen these purses out there on Pinterest. I found a couple designs; this is the first one that I made.
The cards are a standard size and I made two of each design. The envelopes are a tight squeeze and go into the bag a bit rounded, but once the card is tucked inside, all will be good!
The best thing about a project like this is that you don't have to think about what paper will coordinate - choose a DSP pack and have at it!
