Paper Crafting Blog Hop - Lilypad Lake Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the April Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from the United States  and across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog (great project, Sandra!). Welcome one and all.

This month's theme is "thinking of you" and includes product from either the annual catalog or the mini catalog so my choice is the Lilypad Lake Stamp Set and coordinating Lakeside dies from the annual catalog.

The peaceful images in this stamp set make sending warm and thoughtful wishes more than easy. The choice of the 2018-20 In Color cardstock, inks and Designer Series Paper will allow coordination for a stack of cards without any fuss.

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Sue McDonald.

This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

#1 - Check out the Clearance Rack every week to find some great opportunities to collect retired/discontinued Stampin' Up! product. The Clearance Rack was just updated and there are some swell accessories from the holiday catalog from the Halloween collections AND the Hummingbird dies!!) If you were still interested in The Everything Is Rosy Product Medley, it is still on the Clearance Rack for purchase at 45% off. If you need more information on Stampin' Up!'s product medley, message me for the flyer showing everything that is included in the medley.

(January 3 - June 2, 2020)

If you placed an order from me over the past year, you likely have already received a copy of the 2020 Mini Catalog (formerly known as the Spring Occasions Catalog) in the mail. If you did not receive one, please contact me immediately and let's fix that. If you do not already have a demonstrator, it would be my pleasure to be your enabler (er, I mean demonstrator) and send you a copy of your very own. Chock full of inspiration and ideas. 

As always, if you have any questions, or need assistance, contact me in your favorite method of communication. :)
