My Favorite Things - December Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “My Favorite Things.” The Design Team will be showcasing their favorite products from any of the current products and you might even see some sneak peeks, as well! We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

Let's be frank! 
 I spend more time looking through this tool at all the possibilities then I actual craft some weeks.  I find more inspiration and sparks of creativity just from the photos.

If I was going to only save 3 things from my Craft Room other than my stamps, Inks and DSP.  I really think these are the top things I use on every card I make.

1) My trimmer because it's  3 in 1 tool:  It's a ruler, trimmer, and scoring tool.
2) Memento Ink:  Really it's the best coverage black ink out there and we are lucky enough to have it in our catalog.  We can use it to build on itself and it works great with our Stampin' Blends for coloring.
3) The Stamparatus! Baby- I stink at getting my stamped images to stamp evenly and clear.  I sometime will stamp things over and over to get the right imprint of my image that I'm using.   (i.e. my hello on my card is not embossed - I just stamped over and over till I got the layering I wanted)

But we would all agree that our community of stamper is really our most important and favorite Stampin' Up! asset in our Craft rooms.

Well that's all of my random thoughts for this post! 


More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on January 12th. Our theme will be “Time to Sale-A-Brate” when our Design Team will showcase items from Sale-A-Bration as the focal point of their project.. Until then, have fun in your craft space.

  1. Laughed out loud in recognition as I read this post Lori, and I echo everything you said;) Love seeing your stamp on favorite things:) Merry Christmas Pal!

  2. Cute project. I can't seem to get into the stampartus! Glad you find it so useful!

  3. Very true about the catty Lori! Love the pictures in it. Also glad you mentioned the stamparatus. It does provide great ink coverage and makes the "hello" on your card look embossed.

  4. I totally agree on the Trimmer. I could not live without it.
