WooHoo! It's time for another Blogging Friends Blog Hop! Who are the Blogging Friends’? Until a few months ago, we were a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada who had never met before. Well, actually, we still haven’t met yet (in person). . . But, through our common bond of Stampin’ Up! and a shared love of papercrafting we have created a fun new blog hop!
Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created for you!
In case you’ve never ‘done’ a blog hop before, it’s really easy. At the bottom of this post, you’ll see a "continue" image and when you click on it, you’ll be taken directly to the next participant in the hop. Keep clicking on that image at the bottom of each blog post, and you’ll hop through all of the participating blogs, back to where you started – and you’ll see all of the amazing projects created for your inspiration! You won't want to miss a stop, I promise! Of course, if you want to "hop" around at your own leisure, the individual links are also listed.
This month our theme is our favorite retiring stamp set...but who can choose just one? I have so many favorites that are going away and that I will miss terribly but I have seen the new catty and I know I will have no problem finding replacements, lol!
Today I am featuring not one but TWO of my favorites...Perfect Peacock and By the Tide. When the 2014/2015 catalog was released, the Perfect Peacock stamp was the first thing on my list. I couldn't wait to get my hands on him and color! I loved him so much, I even built a class around him which featured this beautiful framed image. (you can view the original post HERE)
Here are just a few more of my favorites made with this stamp...
Living on the Gulf Coast of Florida, I see a lot of the beach. My office is less than a mile from the beach so there are many days that I bring my lunch to work and go sit on the sand for an hour. There is just something about the sand and the waves that re-charges you and on the days I am really lucky I will catch the dolphins playing right off shore. So, it should come as no surprise that By the Tide is another one of my favorite sets. Here are just a few of my favorites...
Remember, these two sets are still available but only through May 23rd. Be sure to get yours soon before they disappear for good! Thanks so much for joining me today and please keep hopping to see what the other Blogging Friends have in store for you!
