Paper and Such August Blog Hop


I’m so excited!  Today is my first blog hop with the Paper and Such Design team.    Today we are showing off our creations made with the new stamp set, Wings and Such.    If you just stopped by my blog, you might want to start at the beginning of the hop at Paper and Such so that you don’t miss out on any of the eye candy.   While you hop along, you will want to leave a comment at each blog because one random commenter will win the Wings and Such stamp set.

I really love this set.  It is so versatile and can be used for a variety of occasions.   In fact, I love it so much that I have already made 4 cards and a scrapbook page using it.  (You will see the rest of my cards later this month.)  For the blog hop today, I decided to make a birthday card to add to my stash.  Both the butterfly and sentiment are from the Wings and Such stamp set.

Here is a look at the entire set.  You can purchase it at the Paper and Such store for only $12.  I love that you can either color the butterflies or stamp them on DP.  Either way they look gorgeous. 



I’ll let you get on your hip, hoppy way to see the rest of the creations from the design team.  Your next stop is Jacquie.   I know she has something lovely for you.

If you get lost along the way, here is the entire blog hop list.  Don’t forget to leave a comment at each stop for a chance to win Wings and Such.

You are so right Cheryl. This set is wonderful. I especially love the Irish prayer you used on the scrapbook page. Your daughter is really growing up fast. She is a fab fisherman too! Saw this on MIM too.

Catered Crop–Think Green Recipe Swap

The latest Catered Crop recipe swap is up!  With Earth Day on April 22 and National Arbor Day on April 25, it’s the perfect time to Think Green. Just make a project that includes the color green and come join our party at the Catered Crop.For my project, I dug out a photo of of our sweet Summer was taken about a year ago.   Although I have been pretty lax about scrapbooking the last few years, I really wanted to make sure I created a page with this photo for my daughter’s scrap book.   We lost Summer, who was a member of our family for almost 15 years, in February so this page seemed especially important to me.After finding some paper that used a lot of green in it, I used lots of various odds and ends that I found in my craft room.  I mixed various stickers and die cuts from other projects to create this page.  As always, Linda has curated a fabulous Pinterest board to get our create mojo working.  (Don’t you just love her boards?)    You can go directly to Linda’s “Green”board by cl…

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
