Pals Blog Hop

Hello Friends,

Spring has sprung and it's time for Pals Blog Hop! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are sharing some fabulous Spring themed cards and projects that we think you'll enjoy! You've probably hopped over from Leah's blog at http://www.leahsstampincorner.com/

I'm stop number 19 on the Pals Hop and I'm glad you hopped in! I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for spring themed paper projects from the Stampin' Pretty Pals! Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the Pals Hop Line-up below and you'll be back on track.

I am loving the Kraft Boxes!  So many creative uses for them.  I used the "Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper for the outside decorating of this box.  This paper is one of the choices for a FREE item with a $50 order. Click here for more information about Sale-A-Bration.
The recipient will have 8 cards for everyday use.

The selection of cards in the box.

Close up of the 'butterfly' on top of the box.
To create the Butterfly, I ran chipboard through the Big Shot using the Beautiful Butterflies Die then distressed it with Soft Suede Ink.  I did the same thing (didn't distress) using the First Edition Designer Series Paper.  Finally I ran a piece of the Everyday Enchantment (using the same Die) and added a large pearl in the middle.  I used Stampin' Dimensionals (they always do the trick) to adhere the 'butterfly'.

If you missed my project from last months PALS blog hop - click here for another idea using the Kraft Boxes.
All the sentiments I used for the 3x3 cards are from the "Teeny Tiny Wishes" stamp set.
 Wow! This set includes a greeting for almost every occasion. Don't just buy it, keep it handy, cause you're going to use it a lot!
