Inky Friends 2017-2018 Annual Catalog Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever Inky Friends Blog Hop!  Our group will be hosting occasional "special event" blog hops with a different focus each time.  For our first blog hop, each member has chosen a stamp set from the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up annual catalog.

The hardest part was picking which new set to use:)  I settled on the Sunshine in My Pocket set with the matching Pocket Framlits.

I recently reorganized my sewing room and have been dreaming of some quilts I would like to sew. I guess that has carried over to my stamping as the first thing that came to mind for the Sunshine in My Pocket set was a quilt card.
Cutting these with the framelits made the corners match perfectly.  Probably the easiest "Y seam" quilt I will ever make!

The Stitched Shapes Framelits also coordinate nicely- I used one to die cut the sentiment.

For the next card I tried a new color combo- Flirty Flamingo and Tranquil Tide with Whisper White.
The pocket is open at the top to tuck in even more goodies.
Well thanks so much for taking time to check out our new Inky Friends blog hop! We will have our blogs permanently linked so you can always click thorough at any time.   We have more hops planned for the future that you won't want to miss!
