Welcome to the Hawaii Ink New Catalog Blog Hop!! I am so excited to share some of our favorite products from the newest Stampin’ Up catalog with you! For a quick background, Hawaii Ink is the downline of the amazing Lisa Curcio. She is our team leader and we have over 100 demonstrators that span from Hawaii, to the continental U.S. to Germany. Many of us are, or have been, associated with the military which explains our great diversity! There are experienced demonstrators and brand new ones too, and we all share a love of creativity and Stampin’ Up!
Before I get to the hop, I have something really special to share. It seems fitting to share it on a hop with Hawaii Ink. I was called yesterday and told that I AM A FINALIST for Stampin’ Up’s Artisan Award contest!!! For those of you who follow me, you already know I had entered. I submitted ten projects for consideration and will find out if I am in the top ten Artisan Award Winners on July 19th at the annual Convention. I pretty much already consider myself a winner because to be in the top twenty finalists is such an honor!!
Now for the hop! If you have been following along, you came over from Emily Abad. Awesome work, don’t you think?? Such a great way to launch into blogging! I look forward to seeing more that she creates. I chose to work with the product that made me jump up with excitement when I saw it.
One of the very best things about the new catalog, in my opinion?? HEXAGONS!! I love them! The new Hexagon Punch is so easy to use and it adds a modern flair to whatever you make. I used the punch in a number of ways here and I will be happy to share more info about that when I return on Monday! I paired the Hexagon Punch with the Six-Sided Sampler stamp set. They are, after all, a bundle!! Epic Day DSP in another of my real favorites so I pulled it out for this card!
For the next stop on the hop is Jo Anne Waterhouse. She is another brand new blogger!! I love her creativity and you will too!
Thanks so much for stopping in today! I look forward to seeing you again Monday (tomorrow) for more details on my card.
