Pals August Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for the August Pals Blog Hop. Even though it's only August we want to provide some inspiration for your upcoming holiday projects. This month's blog hop will showcase new products from the 2013 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. We hope you enjoy seeing how we use the new stamps, new punches and other accessories!
You should have just left stop number 5 on the Pals Hop - Debbie Mageed at Secret Stamper.  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.

One of the most fun items from the Holiday catalog is the Expressions Thinlets Dies Set.  Don't miss it!  The set consists of 3 expressions and one of them, the  "thankful" image, is the perfect focal point for this Thanksgiving Card.  The second new item I used is the 1.25" Burlap Ribbon.  The burlap is the background for the Early Espresso die cut.

The third new item used for this card is the Pretty Print Textured Embossing Folder.

The embossed card stock is the new in color, Baked Brown Sugar.

Its never too early to plan for the holidays, so whether you are looking for Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas designs, you are sure to be inspired both the Holiday Catalog and all the hoppers on the blog hop today.  Happy Stamping!

The next stop is Barb Furlong at The Love of Stamping stop number 7 on the Pals Blog Hop! Thanks for visiting – and I hope to see you next month!
