Stampin' Pretty Pals November Blog Hop

Welcome to the November, 2018 Blog Hop with Stampin’ Pretty Pals. Holiday cards are done. It’s time to start on gifts and gift wrap. Let the Stampin’ Pretty Pals inspire you with “Anything But A Card” today.  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.
If you are like me, you always try to re-purpose something handmade that you received for something else to share.  That is what I decided to do for my project today.  Especially for friends who have birthdays during the Holiday Season; although they may love a traditional colored Christmas card, I try to give them a non traditional birthday card.
I took the mini pizza box and ran it through the Tin Tile Embossing Folder, then I created a belly band for the mini pizza box using Night of Navy card stock.  I attached this beautiful corsage made from paper flowers that I received from Stampin' Up! when I attend OnStage in Orlando this last week to the night of navy belly band.
The mini card is something new that I received in my Stampin' Up! pre-order called Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards and Envelopes.  I love that the inside of the envelope also contains a striped lining.  I added some Grapefruit Grove background ds paper and ran the Happy Birthday Thinlits die through with petal pink and night of navy card stock for a layered look.
Get more inspiration using the Blog Hop Line-up below. 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, December 12, 2018 for the next Pals Blog Hop. It will be a glitzy affair with All That Sparkles and Shines. Don’t miss the fun.


  1. Jennifer, these are works of art!! I love the textures, and all the pretty colors woven into the projects. They are gifts unto themselves. Love those striped envelopes as well!

  2. Yes, Jennifer, they are works of art! I never thought of running the pizza boxes through an embossing folder - how clever! And that corsage is SO pretty. Beautiful projects my friend!
