Lots of Projects to See


Welcome to the Families First Pals Blog Hop for April 2017.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects that are all about our families.

This is a great time of year to think about what to make for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or upcoming graduations. And, family vacations are just around the corner… how would you want to remember those special family moments? We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

I chose to feature the Succulent Garden Designer Series paper when I created this Mother’s Day card.  The paper is so beautiful all on it’s own that I kept the stamping at a bare minimum by just stamping a sentiment.

What mother wouldn’t love to receive this card for Mother’s Day?  It is a fancy fold card made using the Double Dutch Door Card  tutorial. 

Stamp Set – Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock – Calypso Coral, Old Olive, Whisper White & Thick Whisper White, Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper
Ink – Old Olive
Accessories – Stitched Shapes Framelits, Layering Ovals Framelits, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Banner Triple Punch, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

Sometimes a really great designer series paper can take the place of stamping images.  Once the base of the card was constructed, the rest of the card was assembled lickety-split!  Change up the sentiment and this card could be used for many other occasions.

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!

3D Projects….

If you follow my blog, you know that for me it’s mostly about creating cards.  Today I wanted to show you some other things you can do with your stamping supplies.

Fill a Cellophane Bag with a treat, add a simple tag topper, and voila!  Project is complete!  I put 2 pencils in the bag above but you can find any variety of small items to fit in the bag….candy, anyone?

Stampin’ Up! makes a variety of different sized Cellophane Bags.  You are sure to find one that fits your needs.

The tag on this Mason Jar was created using stamps from the March 2017 Paper Pumpkin Kit, bunny Buddies.  Isn’t he adorable?  The most common thing to fill these jars with is candy treats but you could fill them with non-candy treats.

Going to a baby shower?  Put some bibs in the jar and make a cute baby tag – no wrapping required!

Need a child’s birthday gift?  Fill it with crayons, toy cars, hair accessories, etc.

Perfect for a teen?  Get a variety of nail polish, lip gloss, make-up, etc.

I’d love to hear what you would put in a jar like this.  Comment below with your ideas!
