Thank you for joining us for the June Pals Blog Hop and our kickoff to the new catalog! Are you ready to see wonderful creations featuring new products from the 2013-14 Stampin' Up! catalog? Get ready to update your wishlist! 

You should have just left stop number 9 on the Pals Hop – Shannon Jaramillo at If so, you are in the right spot.  If you get off track, the full blog lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.


From the time I first saw "Gingham Garden" Designer Series Paper, I had to have it. This was one of my first new catalog "wishes", and when it arrived, I just fell in love. The patterns and colors are so very trendy now. It really is a "feel good" must have.


For those who follow my posts, you know how I'm crazy for Midnight Muse. Gingham Garden features Night of Navy…a little warmer in tone than Midnight Muse, but just as striking as a contrast color for any project. It really takes your eye to the beautiful sentiment in my "Sweet Spot".

The "sweet, sweet moments" sentiment is from a new stamp set called Happy Day. The font is bold, very contemporary and very pretty! I stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy ink.

My Night of Navy frame is cropped with the new Square Framelits. And, look closely for the pretty coordinating strip of floral Washi Tape. There's a beautiful Gingham Garden suite of Washi Tape featured in the new catalog, as well.

Along with all the pretty new products this card features, I didn't leave out my old favorites which are also available in the new catty… the pretty flower is punched using my Boho Blossoms punch and embellished with a Designer Basic Pearl and some Whisper White Baker's Twine.

I hope you enjoy, and remember always to…express your creativity!

Happy Stampin'
