Card Creations Blog Hop

Hi all!

It is that time of the year again. The latest installment of Card Creations from Paper Crafts magazine is here.

Volume 8 to be exact.

And I am thrilled today to be tvaking part in the Top Ten Blog Hop to celebrate the issue’s release.

I’ve got a card to share with you, but let’s first talk about the issue.

If you don’t have the issue yet, stop. Run. Get yourself a copy of it. If you can’t find it at your local craft or book store, you can find it here in the Paper Crafts and Creating Keepsakes store.

The issue is jam packed with cards for nearly every occasion. Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, friends, you name it. It is one of my favorite issues each year. I love it even more this year. That’s because everything is FRESH and all new. Not a single project in it appeared online before the issue came out. Not a single one was on a blog. Not a single one in an gallery. I can honestly tell you guys that this isssue with all that freshness and newness truly inspired me. I found so many of the projects swoonworthy.

Ok, ok, so you get the point. Enough gushing about the issue.

For today’s hop, Cath and the rest of the Paper Crafts gang really outdid themselves. They picked 11 of the hottest collections from CHA-Winter and paired the gals on the hop with them.

And, hee hee hee (imagine that in an evil, happy, giggly kind of way), duddddde. I got paired with Jenni Bowlin and got to use her Homespun collection. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Here’s what I came up with.

Every single ounce of the patterned paper here is from Jenni Bowlin’s Homespun collection. The butterflies are also from her. The letters are from Doodlebug.

What more can I say but that I love those papers? So. Dang. Pretty!

Leave a comment on my post here today and you’ll be entered in a drawing through Moxie Fab World to win Jenni Bowlin’s Homespun collection, as well the other 10 collections that Cath and the rest of the Paper Crafts crew love.

Be sure to hit the blogs of the other gals on the hop to see who they were paired with and what they have done with the goods. They are:

Also, be sure to leave a comment for Cath on Moxie Fab World. Cath will take all the comments left on all the blog stops (as well as Moxie Fab World) and pick one winner at random to win all 11 of the collections. Yes, all of them. Say you hit every blog and leave a comment, you’ll be entered in the drawing 12 times.

Comments will be accepted until midnight on Sunday, May 30. The winner will be posted on Tuesday on Moxie Fab World. The winner must contact Cath via email through the Moxie Fab World blog.

Wishing you all the best of luck.

Thanks for stopping by today!
