August Pals Blog Hop: Cut it Out!

Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

My card today uses both a punch and thinlits. Can you spot both? Well, the word “hugs” is cut with the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies. I just love the words on these dies, especially the one I’ve used today. “Hugs” is such a sweet sentiment for so many occasions. I’m going to send this card to a friend who hasn’t been feeling well, and it really expresses my thoughts for her.

Have you spotted the punched pieces? They are on the left and right sides of the card. That pretty lace is actually card stock punched with the Decorative Label Punch. This punch is fabulous because you can add these pretty little lacy bits anywhere on your card!

I have another “cut” to show you, and that’s the flower on the envelope! Using my Paper Snips, I cut one flower out of a piece of this gorgeous Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series Paper. I glued it onto the envelope with a little Tombow Multi-Purpose Glue. I love to give a preview of my card on the outside of the envelope!

To see all the items used on this card, scroll down to the bottom of this post where each item is listed. You can click on any item to go to my online store and learn more!

Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on September 13, 2017 for “My Favorite Season”. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Don’t forget to leave me a comment HERE. I’d love to hear what you have to say about my creative “Cuts”.
