Sale-a-bration Kick Off Blog Hop . . . Party Pandas!


Welcome to the Sale-a-bration 2018 Kick Off Blog Hop!  You’re in for a real treat!  I think you’re going to love ALL of the options of Sale-a-bration 2018 and to get you started, the hop includes OVER 50 creative ideas featuring many of them !  Right now, you’re at my blog, Stampin’ Georgia.  You’ll definitely want to click through all of the creative stampers in the list below!


I’ve chosen to feature the Party Pandas stamp set for my idea.  I learned a fun little cutting technique to use with framelits a while ago and thought the panda with the balloon was the perfect image to try it on!   I love how the balloon sticks up above the cut circles!
