Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Love & Affection International Blog Hop Sneak Peeks

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Love & Affection International Blog Hop Sneak Peeks Close Up

Welcome to our International Blog Hop giving out some cheeky sneak peeks of the new catalogue! I’m so excited for the catalogue and can’t wait to dive on into it!

We’re hopping all over the world today and you are currently in the UK and Europe here with me! There are links at the bottom that will change in colour as you click on each person’s blog. I’m in wonderful company and quite humbled to be amongst some real super stars. What a line up, and I’m part of it! Squeeee!

Anyway, my project today is a cute little goodie bag that’s showing off the Love & Affection suite. With the stunning speciality paper that has Bronze (our new metal colour throughout the catalogue) I knew I had to use the matching Washi Tape.

I have hand stamped the tiny flowers from the Love & Affection stamp set to make the label for the front of the bag, then as you can see, added it all over a tiny gift card that works so well with the bag.

Oh and can you see that green twine? Yes, it’s new, and I love it! You know what I’m like for bows and how ‘challenging’ I find them. Well I’m chuffed to bits that there’s twine being added to our arsenal. That’s a product that seems to forgive my bow tying exploits!

I hope you have a great time on our hop, and if you’re new to me here. I blog daily!

I want to see more ideas from this DSP. It is my absolute favorite! And your card is a great way to show-off the In Colors! I love them both. Thank you so much for sharing with us!
