Welcome to the first Pals Blog Hop of 2015. We hope your new year is off to a great creative start. To celebrate the start of a new Stampin' Up! year, we are showcasing products from our newest catalog this month - the Occasions catalog. You may also see new Sale-a-bration products too. If you don't know how to earn free Sale-a-bration products - contact your Stampin' Up! demonstrator to learn more.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Dawn Tidd's Blog #31 on the Blog Hop. Use the full lineup below to move along from blog to blog so you see all of the new projects.

My first project is a card in a box. I used Real Red cardstock for the base and decorated it with the Stacked with Love DSP from the Occasions Catalog. I then adhered the Stacked with Love Designer Washi Tape onto a piece of White Cardstock and cut out several hearts using the Hearts Framelits. I also stamped several hearts using the Groovy Love stamp set and the words from the You Plus Me stamp set. The hearts are "suspended" with strips of transparency sheets.


For my second project I created a "swing card" using the Hearts Framelits dies. I then cut our two silver hearts and embossed them with the Happy Hearts Textured Impressions Embssing Folder.  The greeting is from the Groovy Love stamp set.

The next stop is Amy Hotay, #33 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I'll see you next month
