“it’s a pattern party” pals blog hop – july 2016

2016badge-blackberry…or as I like to call this month’s theme:

“Matchy-Matchy DSP!”

Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for July 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper as well as coordinating embellishments. What we love about Stampin’ Up! is they make it so easy to mix and match colors. And, the amazing selection of embellishments provides a wonderful finished look to our projects. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

Matchy-Matchy DSP!

The inspiration for this card came from the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog 2016-2017. I took a card from page 87 and made it my own… thanks to the designers at the Stampin’ Up! Home Office… I look like I know what I am doing.

Here a a few photos along the way… just kidding… my computer reads your “mac storage is full” so I can not load anything else. Guess it is time for a visit to the Apple Store – UGH! FINALLY repaired… thanks Apple Chat!!! Here are those photos:

Maybe this is the problem…

In addition, I did my first ever YouTube video to go along with this and can I say wow – wayyyyyy too long 22+ minutes.
