Welcome to this month’s Pretty Cards & Paper International Blog Hop.

Our Design Team is made up of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from throughout the world – one from each of the countries/markets that Stampin’ Up! has a presence in.

Each month we will be featuring a different card or designer series paper (DSP)  in our projects.

We’re featuring the stunning Peaceful Poppies DSP in January.  This paper is flying off the warehouse shelves – so get it quick!

Peaceful Puppies Mini Calendar

The Old Olive cardstock is popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals and this acts as a stopper for the folded part of the calendar keeping it upright.

When the calendar part is lifted out from behind its stopper, the cardstock folds flat. Perfect for posting.

They are a bit hard to see in the other photos, but I’ve added some of the Peaceful Poppies Sequins for some extra texture.

Now hop of through and see what projects the other talented members of the Pretty Cards & Papers Design Crew have created with this month’s Designer Series Papers.
