SSINK Occasions Catalog Blog Hop

Thanks for joining us on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop.  This month, we are featuring projects made with items from the Occasions Catalog.  I LOVE this catalog and I can't wait to see what everyone has created.

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 8 on the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop -Darcy at Dj's Stampin Place . If so, you are in the right spot.  If a link doesn't work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.


Two years ago, I posted a tutorial on how to make a Double Easel Valentine's Day card.  It remains one of my most-PINNED posts.  I decided it was time to give it an update with new products.  The picture above shows what the card looks like when it is closed.  When you open it, you get the WOW!


 I used the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack, the You Plus Me stamp set, and the new Chalkboard paper.  You'll find the complete list of supplies at the end of this post.
