Shaping Up Blog Hop and Giveaway!
Did you come from Laurie Willison's blog? If you did then you already know that today I'm hopping along with a great bunch of girls I met during the Paper Crafts Magazine Gallery Idol contest last month! We were all part of the top 20 together and have been chatting online since the beginning. These girls are a total hoot and all so talented! I hope you can find the time to visit each of their blogs today!
Each of the girls participating has created a card for the Paper Crafts July Gallery Challenge which is running now through the end of the month. Want to see what summer themed shaped card I made? Here it is:
paper: cardstock by Stampin' Up! and Bazzill Basics; polka-dotted print from Cakewalk collection by October Afternoon
ink: Crumb Cake by Stampin' Up!
diecut: Cute Smores by Sarah Bailey for Silhouette; Cameo
S'mores are one of my favorite summertime treats! I used the Cute Smores shape by Sarah Bailey in the Silhouette store as the base for my design. After cutting out the main pieces, I inked the edges and put it together. I added the polka-dotted heart and sentiment to finish it off.
To say thank you for all your support during the contest, I am going to give away two of the stamp sets I received for being part of the Top 20 this year:
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post between now and Sunday July 29th 11:59PM EST and I'll choose a random winner to send these great sets to! Good luck!
Next up in the hop is the wonderful Nina Yang! Please check out our Facebook Event page for the full list of participants. I hope you have fun looking at all of their cards! These ladies are seriously talented! Each one of us is giving away a fun prize as well so don't forget to leave lots of comments! :)
