It's a Pattern Party Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for July 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper as well as coordinating embellishments. What we love about Stampin’ Up! is they make it so easy to mix and match colors. And, the amazing selection of embellishments provides a wonderful finished look to our projects. 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 Pam Sadler's blog # * on the Pals Blog Hop.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

This month we were asked to choose one of the new Designer Series Paper sets from the Annual Catalog.  Although it was very hard to choose just one, my choice for the hop is "Fruit Stand".  It is perfect for summer entertaining, gift giving and card making.

The colors are fresh and inviting: Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Cucumber Crush, Pear Pizzaz, Daffodil Delight to name a few. The annual catalog feature a 2 page spread of the Fruit Stan Suite.  Love it!  The projects are fabulous and the photography is beautiful.  Check it out on page 148-149 of the catalog.

This suite was featured during the On Stage in April. Although, it is not my typical style it really caught my attention.  The stamped images have the feel of watercolor and I love the look. A hand painted look and the stamp does all the work.  
Check out the cute "wooden" crates.  There are tutorials all over the internet.  They would make perfect favors for a summer bridal shower.

Here are a few more samples.  Something tells me I am just getting started.  This set will definitely be used for a card at an upcoming Stamp A Stack. You can see a bit of the shading on the pears and the peaches.

Not that crazy about fruit, don't worry you will still love this set.  The possibilities are endless.

Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. Don't miss out on Karen's project. It is sure to inspire.  We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
