Welcome to the Families First Pals Blog Hop for April 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that are all about our families. This is a great time of year to think about what to make for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or upcoming graduations. And, family vacations are just around the corner… how would you want to remember those special family moments? We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
When I was thinking about what sort of project to create for today’s Hop, I couldn’t help but reflect on how lucky I am to have such a wonderful family. I have two great kids, two wonderful sisters, two brothers-in-law (who have always been “brothers” to me), and five nieces and nephews. We’ve shared many family vacations together over the years and have wonderful memories. The one constant has always been the love among us, so when I was deciding on what to do to celebrate my family, the “Sunshine Sayings” stamp set and the “Sunshine Wishes” dies were perfect…. families are a “Lifetime of Love”.
These two cards are clean, simple and so easy. The Whisper White card bases contrasted with the bright colors (Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry and Pacific Point) make these cards “happy”.
So, pick up the Sunshine Sayings Bundle, crop the heart and flower with some bright card stock, stamp your sentiment, add a little bling and create something happy!
The Sunshine Wishes Bundle is on Stampin’ Up!’s newly released Retired Products List but the Sunshine Sayings stamp set and the Sunshine Wishes Dies are not retiring, they will only be available in the “Bundle” (and at the “Bundle” price) until May 31st or while supplies last.
