Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge

This month’s Blog Hop Challenge was to create a set of 5 tags.  I had an idea in mind as soon as I received my latest PTI order using the Tag Sale #8 die and the City Scene sets.  The sentiment is from Winter Snow Globe.




While I was cutting the tags with my Big Shot, I was thinking that the interior portion looked a lot like a popsicle…so, I decided to experiment!





The “groove” is stamped with one of the “road” images from City Scene, and the sentiment and snowflake are from Winter Penguin.

Thanks for stopping by!




Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge


It’s been quite a while since I last participated in a PTI Blog Hop, but this month’s challenge made it the perfect time to start up again.  The theme this month is “Wreaths”, so I chose a fall look for my card.  I used the “Wreath for All Seasons” stamp set, and the Mat Stack 3 and Layerz Mat Stack 3 dies.  I stamped the berries on the twig wreath in orange and red for more depth to the image, and added a button for dimension.  Thanks for stopping by!

February 2013 Papertrey Blog Hop


Today is the February Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and the theme for this challenge is Marvelous Monograms.  I have created a card with a stamped monogram front panel.  I just love the new Mini Blooms stamp set that was released earlier this month…so much building potential with all the tiny flowers and leaves!

Papertrey Ink Accessory Challenge

Today’s Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge was to create an accessory using at least Papertrey Ink product.  I love making tile necklaces out of the blocks in the Quilters Sampler stamp sets, so I decided to enter one in the challenge with a coordinating boutique card.

Papertrey Ink Sketch Challenge

Today Papertrey Ink is having a sketch challenge as part of their 6th Anniversary festivities.  I chose Sketch #3 for my card.  As soon as I saw the sketch I thought about the border dies, and the hearts are perfect for this time of year.

Papertrey June Blog Hop Challenge

This is my first time participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge.  You can read more about the challenge here.  I’ve wanted to participate before, but either didn’t have enough time to put something together, or the 25th of the month passed before I realized it was upon me.

Here is this month’s challenge photo:
