Kylie's August International Highlights
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  I am joining a group that is being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project.
Our theme for this month's highlight is Teachers Gifts.  It is so wonderful to thank our educators for all their hard work and get ideas before the end of the year is suddenly here! This gallery will give you many ideas on what you can do to say thanks to your those very special educators in your life. 
For my project I made a mini treat bag that can be used to hold a little note card and gift card for that special teacher.  
I used a variety of products from Stampin' Up! for this project. The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits has 12 dies with two different word dies as well. I used the Foil Frenzy DS Paper for the base of this and then added the embellishments using Tangerine Tango and Gold.
The FOR YOU sentiment was die cut using Very Vanilla card stock and then I took a gold sharpie and added the color to give it a bit of a tarnished look. I added some Clear Wink of Stella to the little die cut bow.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today make sure you head over to Kylie's blog to vote for my project. I would love to be chosen to do an international blog hop.  Here are all of the products I used for this card:

Happy Mail Monday!!!

It's Happy Mail Monday!  I cannot tell you how thankful I am when I receive these hand made beautiful cards.  It is such a blessing to be able to share the joy of stamping with you.
These cards are each unique in their own individual way.  I love how you can see such a variety of styles when you connect with other stampers. Thank you so much for stopping by today :)

Pals August Blog Hop

Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
My project is made using the new Cat Punch and coordinating Spooky Night DS Paper from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.  As a demonstrator I get to pre-order items and try them out before they are available to everyone.  
For the inside and sentiment I used the new Spooky Cat Stamp Set that also matches perfectly with the Cat Punch.  This was one of my top "must have" items in this year's Holiday Catalog.
I grew up watching a little TV Show called "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" and she had this adorable, well; maybe not so adorable, talking cat named Salem.  As soon as I saw this design series paper, that is what I was reminded of.  
And being a cat lover myself, I happen to have my very own black cat named Fang.  He always seems to know when it is time to stamp and make cards.  He usually gets out all the!
Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on September 13, 2017. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We’d love to hear what you have to say about our creative “Cuts”.
