BLOG HOP! Yeah! 

Welcome to the Inky Friends very first blog hop! I'm so excited to be part of this hop. I haven't done one since this group was part of the Stampin' Addicts hops. We have gotten together do show you some of the new goodies that are in the Stampin' Up! catalog that when live on June 1. Great to be with old friends again!

I am the first stop on this hop but the blogs are all linked together in a circle so you may have come to me from Sara or Twila depending on which way you are hopping around! And in case you get lost along the way, you can go HERE to see the list and get links! Have fun hopping!

Without further ado, here are the projects that I created with the new stamp set Always & Forever. I LOVED this set from the moment I set eyes on it! The tree stump, the rings and that beautiful font! Now, my daughter's impending marriage may have helped my infatuation with this set. I did use her wedding colors to create all these projects.

These first two cards were fun to make. The Forever card uses the new Pinewood Plank embossing folder. There is Wink of Stella on all the little hearts on these two cards.

Now these two cards I adore! The Pinewood Plank shows up on the Mr. and Mrs. card too. Did you see the Tree Rings stamp? Isn't that just cool?

I have been doing more and more scrapbooking and I love to do double layouts. Here's my double layout with Always & Forever.

Well, there are my projects for this hop! What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know! Come back on Monday for some close up of these projects and the list of goodies that were used to create them.

Thanks for checking my projects out! You are now off to see what Twila did with the A Little Wild stamp set! Or maybe you are going backwards and off to see what Sara made with Sharing Sweet Thoughts!

Happy Stampin'!
