Seasons Giving Blog Hop Happy 2018, my friends!  I’m excited to be a part of the Seasons Giving Blog Hop hosted by Latisha Yoast.  This is a great time for me to say thank you so much for your support this year…it’s been an incredible one!

PRIZE ALERT:  Every blog on this hop has a prize (scroll down to see mine), so be sure to enter to win…lots of free goodies to start this year out right!

Here is a look back at some of our favorite projects this year.

colorwheel-3 I made this card and video tutorial right at the time when we released our ink line, so it’s kinda special to me…I was SO EXCITED to finally share this amazing ink and all these incredible colors with you guys!

aquatini You all are mad for plaid!  In this video tutorial, I showed you how to stamp the Peppermint Background Stamp, then turn it and stamp it again and the crowd went wild!  lol!

I did, too…I love this technique!

The Perfect Reason Stamp of Approval 2.4 This peacock had me swooning in 2017!  This was the premier stamp set our illustrator, Lisa Kirkbride and it came out in our Spring Stamp of Approval Collection.

Here is the original blog post.

Clean and Simple Butterfly This card is on display in our office because it was one of the first cards I made IN our office (affectionately nicknamed “The Clubhouse”).  Click here for the post.

Background Stamping with Words Melon Ice is one of my favorite colors and it looks so perfect on this card!  I used a variety of Hellos from our Hello World Stamp Set, mounted them all at the same time, inked in Melon Ice, then stamped my background.  Teamed up with a floral and a pineapple, and you have a great all occasion card!

Laurel CASE 2 This card was SO FUN to make!  Hop over to this post to see all the details and the link to the Facebook Live where I made it.
