Stamp Review Crew: Valentine Free For All Edition

This hop is a little, ok maybe a lot, different than our usual hops. We are doing a theme instead of a single stamp set. Everyone needs more Valentines ideas, and we don't really focus on them any other time of the year. Yet Valentine's Day is one of the largest card giving occasions of the year! Plus, if you don't use the word "Valentine" on the card, you can use the cards and projects for anniversaries, weddings, and just because occasions.
You will also notice some new "faces" this time around! We are thrilled to welcome three new Crew members, Martha Inchley, Bronwyn Eastley, and Linda Callahan!! Be sure to give them a warm welcome :)
So, without further adieu, let's get started!

Stamp Review Crew: Perfect Pannants Edition

It's a brand new year, and we are ready to get busy! I know that every year at this time, I am trying to get more organized and plan to stay in touch better with extended family. I always want to send more cards for birthdays, anniversaries, and just because. It helps to have some cards ready to go at a moments notice. This set will help us all be prepared for all those times we want to be prepared for in the coming year.

      Stamp Review Crew: Mixed Bunch Edition

      Flowers in December, yes indeed! They are the snowflakes of summer, so why not throw a few around in the winter :)  I am sure there will be lots of techniques in the hop this time, as this set really lends itself to techniques. I love the variety of styles in this one little set. It coordinates with the Blossom punch and the 1" and ¾" Circle punches.

      Stamp Review Crew: Endless Wishes

      Woa! It's December already? Well, I guess that means we are all due for some holiday cheer, and for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, we are due for some snow :) Why do I make this distinction? Because we have gone international! We have a new stamper joining our Crew, Rochelle Blok. And she is from Australia!
      This hop is special for another reason. It is the 1 Year Anniversary for the Stamp Review Crew! That first year just flew by.  I hope you have enjoyed what we have done so far, and that you continue to join us in the next year!
      This set came out last year as a "while supplies last" photopolymer set. It sold out so fast, Stampin' Up! quickly released a digital version of it. And then it showed up again in the Holiday Mini for 2014. Boy, are we glad it did :) Get ready for lots of frosty goodness!

      Stamp Review Crew: Amazing Birthday Edition

      Are you ready for more inspiration and excitement?! Well, we sure are ready to bring you some great ideas for how to use this set. I just love the graphic goodness of this set! There are stripes and dots, rays and blocks, and awesome fonts abound :) The circles all punch out beautifully with the 1¼" Circle punch, and the banners coordinate with the Banners framelits. So many possibilities!

      I am sure you are ready to go check it all out, so here is the map for our hop :)

      Stamp Review Crew: Serene Silhouettes Edition

      Fall is in full swing, and what a beautiful season it is! This set always reminds me of fall, and has so many occasions it will work for. I have found that it works well for sympathy cards too, and those are always hard for me.
