At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity.  Our hop theme in February is "Current Products"!

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.
For this fun fold project I followed the awesome tutorial from Beth McCullough, Stamping Mom.  It was super easy and turned out so much fun.  This was the perfect masculine valentine for my hubby using the Heartfelt Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!.
I used a few of the items from the Country Club Suite from Stampin' Up!, the Absolutely Argyle Embossing Folder and the Country Club Designer Series Paper.  Along with the Heart Doilies and Heart Punch Pack and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoy all of the projects in our hop today.

Stampin' Pretty Pals February Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ February Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because this month’s theme is “Art from the Heart” and we think you’re going to love it! 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 full line-up below to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I made this card for my mother-in-law's birthday!  It was yesterday, so being that it is so close to Valentine's Day, it was nice to use this beautiful From My Heart design series paper on her card.  The sentiment is from the Layered With Kindness stamp set and is punched out with the coordinating Label Me Lovely Punch.  The background is embossed using the Parisian Flourish folder and then I added a few Gingham Gala sequins as a finishing touch.

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! Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 11th, for our “Critter Card” blog hop when our Design Team showcase projects with animals, birds, butterflies or insects. Don’t miss the fun!

    Many these days forget those simple words - Thank you. Show your appreciation to people in your lives who have inspired you, helped you, supported you by sending them a thank you card or project.
    For my project I used the Heartfelt Stamp Set from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.  The background design series paper is from the Peaceful Poppies Design Series Paper Stack.  I stamped the sentiment in poppy parade ink and then die cut it using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The layer under the sentiment was die cut using the Detailed Bands dies and a piece of Peaceful Poppies ds paper.  I used the Braided Border Punch for the border along the edge of the ds paper.  I punched a piece of mossy meadow card stock and then used my paper snips to cut the punched out piece in half to create the border look.
    Here is a peek at the inside of the card.  I used the darling label punch from the punch box to punch out the inside sentiment and then layered it over the Label Me Lovely punched out in Mossy Meadow cardstock.

    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.

        Stampin' Pretty Pals January Blog Hop

        Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! We’re showcasing our favorite new products from the 2020 Sale-A-Bration brochure. 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 full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
        For my favorite Sale-A-Bration item I used the Kerchief Card Kit.  It makes quick and easy cards, that are vibrant colors with some added gold bling.  You can get this card kit free with your $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration, which lasts until March 31.  
        You make 8 cards: 4 of each design and the kit comes with matching decorated envelopes.  It comes with everything you need to assemble without any stamping.  You can always add your own twist with embellishments, ribbon or accessories.
        These days with a 5 month old little boy I need quick and easy cards.  But, I also want them to be beautiful with awesome detail; so the Kerchief Card Kit is just the ticket.  Here is a picture of Caleb being entertained in his bouncer while I got my cards made ;)
        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, February 12th, for our Art From The Heart blog hop when our Design Team showcase projects made from the heart for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun!
