Welcome to the last Pals Blog Hop of 2014. This month we want to help you start your holiday wish list by sharing projects featuring our favorite Stampin’ Up! papers, stamps, tools and accessories. Get your wish list ready as you move along through the blog hop.

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come over from Maggie Mata at Maggie Made Cards. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the inspirational projects.


  • Anybody who knows me kows that I love patterned paper and color! I enjoy mixing patterns and colors and always look forward to new patterns and colors.
  • Stamps were always mounted on wood blocks, then recently clear mounted stamps became popular, but my absolute favorite is Stampin' Up!'s Photopolymer Stamps. They are so easy to store, they're easy to mount on your clear block, and they're transparent, making your stamping more precise. I also believe they hold the ink better.
  • I can't be without my framelits and punches. They're a must, along with the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.
  • And every stamper should have a handy supply of Stampin' Dimensionals, a staple at any stamping table.

So, without getting into much detail, my "Wish List" would always include

  • A Great pack of Designer Series Paper – Here I used "Flowerpot" DSP; it has a nice mix of bold, floral and subtle patterns, and paired it with "Back to Black" DSP, a black and white color pallette for any occasion.
  • A fabulous Photopolymer Stamp Set – This one's "Another Thank You" just because I loved the bold sentiment with the bold DSP.
  • A Big Shot Die Cutting Machine;
  • Some framelits – Here, I used the Circles Collection Framelits.
  • A few "shape" punches – This one's Stampin' Up!'s 1/4" Circle Punch.
  • Stampin' Dimensionals

Oh, and by the way, any of the "Glimmer Papers" – Silver, Gold or Red – are great for adding a little sparkle to any project. I love to pop on a dot of sparkle now and again.

I wish you lots of happy creating. So, download the Annual Catalog here, create your very own "Wish List"… and don't forget to give it to Santa!
Happy Wishes,

The next stop is Wendy Kline at Doggone Delightful Stampin' on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting and I hope to see you in 2015.
