Stampin' Addicts Retiring Stamp Set Blog Hop for 2016

   Hello and welcome to another fun Blog Hop featuring creations from my Stampin' Addicts friends and me.  Wondering what a "Hop" is?  Well it's a group of bloggers who have linked their blog posts together so when you click on the next link or previous link it will take you to the next blog or previous blog until you complete the journey back to the original blog you started at.  So you can start anywhere.  If you have been following the "Hop" in order then you have just arrived from Heidi's Blog where she featured the retiring Stamp Set "Everything Eleanor".  Love her creations!
   So there are 7 stops on this "Hop" and I am stop #5.  I have chosen the stamp set "Hello Life" and the "Hello Life" kit for my featured projects.
My first project features the kit and stamp set.  This is such a super fun kit to put together and customize any way you want.  I chose to use pictures of my 3 year old triplet grandsons.  I didn't care for the yarn pom-poms that were suppose to be made for the banner at the top so I used my Scallop Circle Punch to make my pom-poms.  I also used the Rotary stamp that is on the retiring list for the boys' names.  The kit comes with all kinds of fun stuff and even extra stuff so you can make more projects...
My second project is just a fun, happy card made with some leftovers from the kit and then stamped with a saying from the stamp set...
So I did some more stuff that make's me happy and created a 12 x 12 scrapbook page using my leftovers from the kit and stamping a bit more with the stamp set.  Again using the Rotary stamp for their names.  And that is all I have for you.  I hope you have enjoyed my projects.  Now it's time to "Hop" on over to Tanya's Blog and see what great ideas she has come up with using the stamp set "Sea Street".  So just click on the box that says Next Blog and it will take you right to her blog.  Thanks again for "Hopping" with us and have a super day!

It's Time To "T" Off!

Here is a custom order I made for a customer for her son's High School Graduation party. She gave me some ideas from pinterest and I tweeked them a bit. Fun job!  I used an old golf stamp set that belong to a friend of mine.  It's always fun to run cardstock though the Big Shot in an embossing folder to add texture.  It really makes projects "pop".
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check back starting tomorrow I'm "Hopping" with The Stampin' Addicts all weekend.  So please stop back by and check out our projects we have made using some of the retiring stamp sets from Stampin' Up!

Group shot of the 12 projects we made.
 Checkbook cover, fun monster card, little purse Hershey Nugget holder, and a Birthday card.  All of my projects except for the checkbook cover were projects ideas from other demos.
