February Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our February Greek Isles Achievers blog hop. Those hopping today are Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that have achieved the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive trip. We will be hopping together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin' Up!® products. I live in Minnesota in the US and would love to help you if you have any questions.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity or may have come from the person previous to me in the list.  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 fun. At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity.  Our hop theme in February is the Stampin' Up! Occasions or Sale-A-Bration Catalogs!
For this card I decided to use the Sweetest Thing Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog.  I love how this suite has design series paper, ribbon, stamps and dies along with cardstock, treat cups and tags.  Everything comes together so easily with these color coordinated products.
I made two different versions of this fun birthday card.  There are so many ways to use this stamp set bundle with the colorful ds paper.  Who doesn't love something sweet!
Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss.  Remember that currently you are at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next.

Stampin' Pretty Pals February Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
For this card I used some of my favorite Sale-A-Bration items.  One of them being the foil paper that comes in Grapefruit Grove & Lovely Lipstick.  I used the grapefruit grove foil paper and ran it through the Country Floral Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder.  It turns out with such a pretty floral pattern.  
I added a piece of the Painted Season Design Series paper over the embossed foil.  The Country Floral Embossing Folder and the Painted Seasons DS Paper are two of the newly releasing Sale-A-Bration items that you can earn with your order beginning Friday, February 15.
I fussy cut out a few of the butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly Design Series Paper (also a sale-a-bration item).  Then to make sure they matched the card base color, I used my light call me clover stampin' blend marker and gave them a touch of call me clover color!  I added some variegated ribbon and layered the grosgrain call me clover ribbon over it. The sentiment comes from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and is punched out using the Story Label punch.  
Have you not heard of the Story Label Punch?  It will be a limited release item during the month of March. Watch for more details on these awesome limited release items closer to March.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 13, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Spring Has Sprung” projects. Don’t miss the fun!
