Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop: 2016 Occasions Catalog

Welcome to the 2016 Occasions Catalog Blog Hop!  Some of us Stampin' Up demonstrators from the Stampin' Addicts group have joined together to plan a blog hop with a sampling of products from the new catalog.  We have our blogs linked but you can also click HERE for the complete blog roll.  You will not want to miss a thing!

The one set that I could not wait to experiment with was the Playful Pals Bundle which has a whole bunch of stamps (50 to be exact!) to mix and match to create animals and a coordinating thinlit set to make a petite little pyramid box.

I created a collection of valentine projects.

First is an ornament made by adhering two pyramid boxes together at the bases.  The hearts on the side are punched from one of the patterns in the Love Blossom DSP Stack.

Next are tiny treat holders (so cute!) made with the side triangles from the pyramid box.
And last but not least... some little critters.  Of course there had to be a few cats in there!
