January PTI Blog Hop







 

PTI's Blog Hop this month is to dust off some long forgotten PTI stamps and ink them up.  I feel like all of my stamps are covered in dust from moving half way around the globe (New Zealand to California) and then being stuck in a box in my children's closet.  One of these days I will have a craft space again and I promise that I will give them all my crafty goodies a well loved, dust free home.  So I went digging through the boxes and pulled out the All Booked Up set, which I love and can hardly believe that it's been almost 5 months since I last used these stamps, see the August Blog Hop post here.  I have also used this week's Play Date Cafe colors, grey, green and orange, because I loved being pushed out my comfort zone to try new colors.

Materials: Card: Tim Holtz ornamental die, grey card stock from stash, Stampin Up Kiwi Bliss card stock, PTI Book Print impression plate, PTI All Booked Up sentiment, Studio G orange ink, The Twinery Mandarin twine, Fiskars 2 inch circle punch, EK success 1 3/4th inch circle punch, white & orange card stock from scraps


Bookmark: PTI All Booked Up image, PTI Bookmark die, PTI Book Print Impression plate, Stampin Up Kiwi Bliss card stock, Twinery Mandarin twine
