Let's Get Hopping Round 44-Favorite Occasions


Hey Y'all!
The Let's Get Hopping Crew is back this month sharing our favorite occasions! If you have been hopping along, you arrived here from Rachel's blog. Welcome! If you are starting with me, make sure you hop all the way through so you get to see all of the beautiful projects we are sharing. I had a tough time with this theme....I don't know if you would call this one an "occasion" but I love sending "Thinking of You" cards just to let people know they are on my mind.

And the  "After The Storm" stamp set had the perfect sentiment!

I only used the sentiments from the set, no other stamping. But I love how this layout shows off this gorgeous Sweet Symmetry DSP! It is one of my favorites from the new catalog, and one of the designs on sale now through August 2. I layered a 3-3/4 x 5 piece of DSP onto a 4 x 5-1/2 piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I also used 1 x 4 strips of other patterns of DSP to layer. I tore the edges, and also distressed the edges of the large piece to give it that "vintage" feel.

I've said many times DSP and a good punch, and you can be a card-making machine! The perfect combination for quick and easy cards.  I used the Lovely Label Pick a Punch to create the decorative edges on my 3/4  strip of Flirty Flamingo, stamped the sentiment in Night of Navy to match the DSP, and Voila! A Linen thread bow finished off the front. I added a 1x4 strip of the DSP to the inside and stamped "You have been on my mind" in Night of Navy. 
Now let's see what Alicia has created for us!

  1. I love this type of card too! So nice to let someone know they are important.

    1. Yes! It seems when I send a card, the person tells me I really needed it that particular day, God's timing always amazes me!

  2. So pretty! You know I don't think I've really looked at this DSP, but I love it. Hmm, add it to the list ;)

  3. I love this type of card Nina. Great for so many reasons x
