The Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop: Hello, Lovely
Welcome to another fabulous Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop.  This time we are featuring the set: Hello, Lovely.  Haven't all the projects just been amazing so far!  I feel so lucky to be hopping with this talented group of demonstrators from all over the country.

I may or may not have been cheating with this post.  Last summer, I got to be a display stamper for Convention and I never finished showing all of the projects I created for the display boards here on my blog.  So today, I get to show you three very different projects and I didn't even have to break a sweat to do it:

Colors: Midnight Muse, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Sky and Crushed Curry.  Stamps: You're Lovely.  Big Shot: Tasteful Trim XL Bigz, Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Accessories: Candy Dots and Candy Dot Bases.
This is kind of a fun masculine Thank You card.  It's primary colors would make it great for a teacher too.  I love this little "Thank You, You're the Best" stamp.  Probably because I use that "you're the best" phrase a lot.

Colors: Crisp Cantaloupe, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, So Saffron.  Stamps: Hello, Lovely.  Big Shot: Apothecary Accents Framelits.  Punches: Decorative Label, Artisan Label and Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack.  Accessories: Pear Pizzazz Chevron Ribbon, Baker's Twine, Candy Dots, and Window Sheets.
Hello, Lovely makes me think of something the English would say.  And that makes me think of Tea so I made a cute little box that holds some tea bags. 

Colors: Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Smoky Slate and Whisper White.  Stamps: Hello Lovely and Label Love.  Punches: Artisan Label, Blossom and 7/8" Scallop Circle.  Accessories:  2013-2015 In Color Designer Series Paper Stack, Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffle Stretch Trim, In Color Boutique Details, Smoky Slate Embossing Powder.
I always struggle to get good pictures of scrapbook pages so you'll have to just assume that it looks a little better IRL than it does here. :)  This is my cute cousin Carol and her husband Dave at their beautiful wedding in Grafton, Utah (just outside of Zion National Park).  Here I used some of the accent images from the Hello, Lovely set to make border on the page and elements.  It's a very versatile set.  (And of course a Stamp-a-ma-jig was required to get them even sort of straight.)

I hope you've enjoyed this stop on our hop today. Feel free to become a blog or Facebook follower so you can see upcoming posts or even just leave a little love in the comment section. Enjoy!

These are great, Paula! I really love the tea holder. I rarely use that framelit, so maybe I'll try to make one just to get it out of the package. :)

Yapha said...

Great projects! (And no, that isn't cheating!) I really like the first card - so bold and bright and fun!

Betty said...

Oh I can't pick a fav. Love the bold colors in #1, the tea caddy is adorable and you are the queen of the stamp-a-ma-jig on that layout!

Dawn Tidd said...

So glad you got to share those projects today, they're all three so fun! I love the bold colors on the card, perfect for the man in your life!

MaryR said...

such pretty projects Paula, I just love the colors and the tea gift box

Nancy Smith said...

Love the bold colors on your first card and the alphabet press embossing folder - great card! The tea holder is so cute, too.

Heidi Baks said...

Very fortuitous, and I'm glad we get to see the projects! It was like you were holding onto them for this. Very nice projects, too!

Adriana Benitez said...

Wonderful projects and such a variety of "looks", too. I think you've really shown what this set can help a person do!
Love the boldness and texture of card 1, the tea box is so sweet (I can think of a couple of people who would enjoy a treat like that) and the page is so sweet. Aww, weddings *sniff*
(And I don't think you were cheating… just reeeeaaaaalllly ahead of the game. lol)

Jill Coleman said...

All of your projects are wonderful Paula. Love the bold graphic look of the card and the little tea box is super cute!! Need those dimensions. I love the soft look of your scrapbook page - very pretty.
