Welcome to the August 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re going to “Cut It Out”. Participants will feature projects with “cuts” from punches, dies, Framelits, Edgelits, or Thinlits.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

The Bike Ride Bundle offers lots of opportunities to cut, stamp, piece and fun creating your very own designer bike.   I love the bright bold color Tempting Turquoise with the new in-color Lemon Lime Twist. It makes me happy!   

I used silver foil paper adhered to a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to make the application of the main bike part to the card easy!  The handle bar ribbons are made with white baker’s twine sponged with Lemon-Lime Twist ink.  If you haven’t bought any of the 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon, you will want to add it to your list – isn’t it gorgeous?

I enjoy two forms of exercise – biking and pilates – so when the bundle came out in the 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, I knew it would make it way to Maineville, Ohio.  My granddaughters and I have many fond memories of adventures riding together on the Little Miami State Park trail.  

Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on September 13, 2017 for “My Favorite Season”. Now hop along using the Blog Hop Line-up below. Thank you so much for hopping with the Stampin’ Pretty Pals today. Don’t forget to leave us a comment. We’d love to hear what you have to say about our creative “Cuts”.
