January Pals Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the first Pals Blog Hop of 2013! Today the Stampin' Pretty Pals are excited to introduce you to new Stampin’ Up! products that are available in the Spring Catalog. We hope you find inspiration and ideas for using the new stamps, papers and accessories.
You should have just left stop number 1 on the Pals Hop - Dawn Tidd at Tiddbits from Dawn. 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.

The Sale-a-bration promotion begins on January 22nd.  Today's project is another sneak peek that features several exciting products you can get "free" with a $50 purchase. 

Pool Party and Island Indigo are two of my favorite colors.  I can't believe they will be retiring this summer.  They will be missed. 
The focal point of the card uses a scallop punch, one of the doilies from the Delicate Doilies Sizzlet, a stamped image from the Madison Avenue Stamp Set, and a Designer Print brads.  Stampin' Up products are so easy to work with because they are designed to coordinate so well.

Don't you just love the new Honeycomb Texture folder!  It is one of my top 10 products in the new catalog.

Stamp Sets:  Madison Avenue (Sale-a-brations) and Sassy Salutations
Paper: Sycamore Street DSP (Sale-a-brations), Pool Party, Island Indigo, Whisper White.
