There is an awesome crop going on over at CardSwaps this week. Challenges and games will be posted February 8-11, 2012 and you have until February 14, 2012 to get your projects posted to the appropriate thread. We are VERY excited to announce we have two sponsors for this crop, SpellBinders and Elmer's Glue!!!
The blog hop theme goes with the crop title of "Winter Warm Up". All of the blog hostesses will be sharing projects that make them smile and help bring warm, fuzzy feelings to the cold winter months.
We're also playing a game as we're hopping. Collect a letter from each blog on the hop and unscramble the word once you collect all 13 letters. The last hostess in the blog hop will direct you to the thread in the forum where you will find all the details to enter the drawing. Your only hint is... it's a phrase and it's a way paper crafters warm up.
For my project, I chose the movies. There is nothing better than a movie on a cold winter night. On any given Friday, we'll get all comfy, turn the fireplace on and plug in a movie. One of my favorites is Pretty in Pink. Ah, all of those 1986 memories!
Makes you smile, doesn't it? I still love it!
So my projects reflect a little 80's Glam...
- Dry emboss white cardstock with Vintage Wall Paper embossing folder (SU).
- Cut out frame (Teresa Collins, Mr. & Mrs.)
- Stamp sentiment (Hampton Art) onto vellum with black ink, heat emboss with clear powder.
- Adhere to frame with Tombow vellum adhesive.
- Attach brads to frame (Recollections).
- Tie ribbon in a bow, adhere feather trim.
- Adhere frame with foam adhesive.
I'm entering these in CAS-ual Friday's On the Red Carpet Challenge.
So for the game we are playing while we're hopping...my letter is: A
