Season of Love Blog Hop

Good morning & happy Saturday. Don’t you just LOVE Blog Hops?  And what better time to host one then the Season of Love!

We are a group of ladies from SplitCoastStampers who formed Paper Bloggers Unite! This weekend we want to inspire your Season Of Love projects… whether it’s creating something for that special someone or just because you want to play.  Your project can be anything that you want to create whether it's a card, scrapbook page, mixed media, etc.

Here is the card that I created for this Season of Love Blog Hop.

Materials Used:
  • Image - Sassy Studio
  • Sentiment - Valentine sticker from my stash
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi; Xpress it Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Basic Gray - Kissing Booth
  • Accessories:  Ribbon, heart sticker - from my stash; Nestabilities Label Die; Liquid Pearls; Florish Bling - Recollections; Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts; Leaves - Martha Stewart Leaf punch
  • Copic markers:  B0000; E30, E31, E34; E25; E50, E51, E53; R20, R21, and R43
I have a small Blog Candy package to give away to one lucky winner using Random Generator so everyone has an equal chance.  For this blog hop, you may only have 1 entry.  Mr. Linky doesn't usually work for me, so just leave a link to your blog in your comment so that I can come visit your blog and see what you've created.

Included here are:

Stampin Up - Bloomin' Marvelous from the Sell-A-Bration brochure; Stampin Up Wisteria Wonder and Melon Mambo stamp pads (I thought these were pretty Spring colors); a set of Studio G clear birthday stamps, and a Verve stamp - Time to Blossom.

As coordinator, Kelly will be drawing a name from ALL the comments from ALL the blog participants for a Special Prize Pack! So two chances to Win!

Come play along. To get some inspiration, simply click on each of the links below to see what the Paper Bloggers have come up with and leave your comment and a link to your blog.  These links will go live starting on Saturday.  Here are the links to each of the Paper Bloggers Unite Blogs:
