Alaska Achievers Blog Hop – January

Welcome to the Alaska Achievers Blog Hop for January!  You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog (Chris Slogar) or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the projects.

I chose to use the Tutti Frutti Suite – it is so yummy!!  I love everything about it, especially the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack!

I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to make a bag for Narrow Note Cards.

The Fruit Basket Bundle and Tutti Frutti designer series paper offer unlimited possibilities for cute projects.  I decorated our precut and scored Narrow Note Cards.  I also added a piece of coordinating designer paper, punched with the 2 1/4″ circle punch, to each envelope to simulate envelope liners.

On my pineapple card, the designer paper measures 2 1/4″ x 4 1/4″.  I used the Everyday Label Punch (held over from the 2017 Holiday Catalog) and the Stitched Oval framelit that cuts a 2 1/4″ long oval.

The Night of Navy print here measures 2″ x 4 1/2″, and the Real Red strip is 1/2″ x 3″.

Finally, my pear card uses a strip of designer paper measuring 1″ x 4 1/2″.  I used the smallest Stitched Circle framelit, and slightly larger framelits from the Layering Circles Framelits.

You can see that the possiblities with these mini stamps and punches are endless!  Besides the fact that punches make projects quick and easy, here’s what I love about this bundle…

 While these punches may appear tiny and fussy, they are very forgiving.  The punched shapes are slightly smaller than the stamped images.  That means you don’t have to align everything perfectly to get a good result.

The video below shows how to create the bag.  If you are receiving this post in an email, click here for the video.

If you are like me, and you just love these sweet little note cards, you may also be interested in the boxed sets of note cards I showed earlier this month using the Picture Perfect Party Suite.  Click here for that project.
