PAL's Feb 13 Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the February Pals Blog Hop! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to introduce you to the Stampin' Up! products we LOVE. We hope you find new ideas for using the products you already have - or find new items to add to your wishlist.
 You should have just left stop number 17 on the Pals Hop -

  • . If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.
     For my part I have a neat little gift type item that is fun and easy to make.

    Mine is dressed up for Valentines day, but you can do so many things, just think of it as a big card. Inside is a Jr legal tablet.

    I added some of the DSP to the top of the tablet.
    It uses a full sheet of CS, I used Whisper White here, then as my tablet is about 1/4" thick, I found the center, and scored 1/8" on either side of it. I also cut 1/4" off the top edge and 1/8" off each side edge just so it looked a bit neater, but that is up to you.
    Would make a cute gift for a friend, spouse, teacher, just change out the sentiment.
    I love my new SU trimmer, it has both a cutting and scoring blade attached all the time. It's really easy to do a small amount of scoring.
    I also am in love with these two sets. The sentiment is from You Are Loved Stamp set, and punched out using the Decorative Label punch.
    The Hearts are from the Hearts A Flutter Stamp and die cut bundle in the Spring Catalog. I am so glad I bought that one, I've been having a great time with it.
    I used the Neutrals Designer Series Paper pad. I truly love all the paper pads, they are so usable. They are good for any kind of card or project without worrying if they are out of season.
    I also used Cherry Cobbler Seam binding
    So my colors are,  Whisper White, Black/gray, Cherry Cobbler.
    I hope you find this project useful.
