Thanks for 'hopping' on over!

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by today as several stampers from Stampin' Addicts are going to share with you projects that they've created using products from the upcoming Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog.  If you happen to be joining in starting with my blog, be sure to click the link on the bottom to head over to the next stop on our blog hop.  If you arrived here after viewing Debra's projects, welcome!  I absolutely LOVE her Falling Foliage card and will be CASEing that one for the future (aka Copying And Stealing Everything).

I chose to showcase a sentiments stamp set this time around, called Seasonal Sentiments.  This set has four sentiments, perfect for upcoming holidays.  Let's get started with the first - Halloween!  I had a lot of fun creating this project.  You've probably seen Becky Roberts' wonderful milk cartons around the web, and this is the fifth different version of one that I've made since purchasing her tutorial (very affordable, I might add).  I just love these cute cartons, and they were perfectly sized to show off the first stamp in my stamp set, don't you think?



Moving on to Thanksgiving, I ended up doing a staircase accordion card.  I really like this sentiment, but I'll admit, this is my least favorite of the four projects I made to share with you.  It just didn't gel as well as the others, and I ran out of time for a redo.  Then again, on the last hop, the card I put together at the last minute turned out to be a favorite for many of my readers, so maybe you'll like this one, too.


What's a seasonal sentiment set without a Christmas sentiment?  Stampin' Up! nailed this one for me, as I really love this one.  Can you keep a secret?  I signed up for a scrapbook swap over at Stampin' Addicts, and that deadline is coming up soon.  So, you're getting a preview of my Christmas 8x8 scrapbook swap!  Shhh, don't tell...


The final sentiment stamp in this set was actually the first one I used when starting to work on my blog hop projects.  It's a great Valentine's sentiment, but what's better, you could use this one any time of the year.


I hope you enjoyed my stop on the blog hop.  I've shared the details of my projects below, in case you are interested, but if you just want to head on over to Betty's blog next, that's ok with me because I know you are going to love what she's got planned for your viewing pleasure, featuring a new product for Stampin' Up!, fabric!

Jean Fitch from jlfstudio said...

So often I find sentiment sets a trifle dull or repetitive but you made this set fun and down right appealing. Leave it to a teacher to show something unexpected and wonderful....(and to make me a wee bit nervous about my spelling in a comment - LOL!)

Cindy said...

Cheryl, I was so excited to see what you did with this set! I love every one of your projects, but the mini milk cartons are the bees knees! Loving the ribbon threaded through the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Trim, too!
