Thank your for joining the June Stampin Friends BLOG HOP, where we are celebrating the first day of summer! We have an amazing Hop for you this month!!!
Be sure to follow each blogger to see all 12 of the awesome projects that have been created and shared for you! If you get lost a long the way, there is a list of participants at the bottom of each of the blogs!
Since today is the first day of summer and school is almost over, I decided to make some teacher gifts! All of my projects use current Stampin Up products! I hope you enjoy what I have planned for you!
My projects theme was from a Lemon Verbena car air freshener I came across from a local store. I was very excited to see the Lemon Zest was carried over to the new annual catalog. So it was a perfect fit for this month's hop.
The projects use some new and returning products. My color choice was the New In Colors Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and Call Me Clover; 2017-2018 In Color Lemon Lime Twist. Stamp sets are returning Lemon Zest and Daisy Delight.
My First project is a large clothespin. I found them at AC Moore, pretty inexpensive. I cut the cardstock to 1 1x2 x 6 1/8, embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder. I stamped, punched and layered 3 daisies and finished the center with a Faceted Gem. I added a few strands of the Gold Mini Sequins Trim.
The books mark is 2x4 1/2. I found the sentiment online and printed it out on Whisper White. They can use the bookmark or keep it display in the clothespin. Finished with the Pineapple Punch Grossgrain ribbon and a bow made from Linen Thread.
My card was super easy. Pineapple Punch base layers are Whisper White and the coordinating new In Colors DSP 6x6 Stack. Then a banner cut from the Grapefruit Grove paper that was embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder. The sentiment was printed on Whisper White then stamped over with the Lemon. Finished off with the Call Me Clover Grossgrain ribbon.
I hope you enjoyed my projects, be sure to leave a comment. I'd love to hear your thoughts. I appear to be the end of the hop, but incase you missed someone along the way, you can find all the hoppers listed below!
Hope you have a wonderful summer
Thanks for stopping by

Thank your for joining the Stampin Friends May BLOG HOP. If you are like me and struggle with masculine cards, then you will want to be sure to follow this hop to the end! Why??? Well, this month's hop, focuses on masculine cards and projects. And let me tell, the hop is amazing and definitely has CASE written all over it.
If you came from Kim Jolley's Blog, wasn't her projects FANTASTIC???
Now, be sure to follow each blogger to see all the awesome projects that have been created and shared for you! If you get lost a long the way, there is a list of participants at the bottom of each of the blogs!
Last month, we had a giveaway, which we do from time to time! So I wanted to give a shout out to our LUCKY April Blog Hop winner! And yes, you read that correctly, Siretta won a Stamparatus!
Ok, let's get to my projects!
SOOO as many of you are aware, Stampin' Ups new Annual Catalog is just around the corner, which means, retirement of many items is upon us. The Spring Occasions catalog will retire as well, on May 31st. So be sure to check my website for any products you want! They may not be around much longer. Need a new catalog, be sure to message me and I'll send you one right away!
The product I used is from the Occasions catalog, it is the True Gentlemen Suite. Although this suite will be retired at the end of the month, the Tailored Tag will be carrying over to the new Annual Catalog!
I used the Truly Tailored stamp set, Tailored Tag Punch, True Gentlemen DSP and Night of Navy Corduroy Ribbon. There was also buttons in the suite as well.
Now, I must admit, I have a real hard time with masculine cards, I always feel products stereotype, like tools, BBQ ties. And not every male does or uses those things. This set has grown on me, and I realized its how you use it!
So I decided to make a fancy fold card, I chose a double z-fold. There are many YouTube videos and ideas on Pinterest.
The base of my card is Chocolate Chip - measure 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2 and 2 3/4. As youc an see from picture, one fold is forward, the other is back (like and accordion style). The 2nd z-fold is 2 3/4 x 8 1/4 scored at 2 3/4 ad 5 1/2.
Now my layers are all 1/4 smaller than each other so that is easy to figure out! The stamping is in Chocolate Chip, which I must admit, I am sad to see this color retire!!!
This just allows the width of the marker to fit. At the top of the folded (dsp is the reverse pattern). I folded the paper down about 1/2" again. Then used my 1/2" circle punch to make the opening for the marker to fit in. I adhered the 1/2 tab down. Insert the marker and that's it.
I added the tag with dimensionals and the corduroy ribbon and it's that easy!
If you have any questions on how I made this, please feel free to comment or send me a message!
I hope you enjoyed the projects I have shared with you today!

This month’s theme is Spring Has Sprung!
It is April Vacation from school this week! I knew I needed to create so I wouldn’t miss this hip. But we camp, so space and time is limited!! Unfortunately, the weather has been cold and rainy which has caused us to dramatically shift gears on how to keep everyone entertained! Well Papar Pumpkin is perfect for situations like this!!! It was great that this month I decided to work on Paper Pumpkin.
What is Paper Pumpkin?? It’s an all inclusive project kit from Stampin Up!! Each month you receive a different kit with everything you need to create amazing projects!!
April is called You’re My Anchor! It’s a really fun nautical theme!!!
While the kiddos swam, I pulled out 1 box and completed the 20 cards and 4 boxes that were included in the kit. I brought my own snips, acrylic block and adhesive! Just makes it easier!!! But it’s all packed up easy peasy!
And there’s even supplies leftover to make a few more cards or embellishments for more boxes!
and if you join Paper Pumpkin no later than May 10 you get 2 months free Wow
So while I can’t take full credit for my projects, I hope you enjoyed them nonetheless!!!!!

The Colors are Evolving!The spice of life is variety, and that’s especially true in the world of color. Stampin’ Up! makes a point to keep an eye on color trends across different markets and industries. When we see changes happening, we review our color spectrum to ensure that we remain consistently on top of the trends. This brings us to the 2018 Color Revamp!
In order to keep bringing you the most current and on trend colors, we decided it was time to give our color collections a makeover.
With this revamp, you’ll not only have new products but a new variety of shades that will inspire creativity and allow you to explore more sides of your crafting.
New Classic Stampin’ PadsIn addition to new colors, we also redesigned our ink pads. The case is a new, more intuitive design and we’ve improved the formula of the ink, as well! We think you will love these changes and you can contact me to learn more.
