Stampers with an Attitude February Blog Hop

Welcome to our team blog hop!  This month we are showing the Charlotte paper pack and/or Easter projects.  If you are coming from Vicki O'Dell's Blog then you are in the right place!

I am late posting this month because I had the date wrong, SO SORRY!!  Hope this layout is worth the wait, I LOVE IT!!  I've been waiting for the right inspiration to showcase my favorite photograph of my daughter from her wedding.  I saw a layout and it inspired me to use our Charlotte paperpack instead of a paperpack that matches her wedding colors.  I tweaked the layout that I ran across and this is the result.
I absolutely love our Designed Decor Shadow Boxes, they can showcase any layout or photo that you love!!  

I used our Shin-Han markers to color in the stamped images from the stamp set Spring Time Wishes after I stamped them in black ink.  Lucky thing is the Spring Time Wishes stamp set has a coordinating thin cuts so you can cut them out without using scissors--WOO! HOO!   I colored them in with a lighter solid color, outlined with a darker color, then when over the top again with the lighter solid color to blend the colors.  LOVE the way the leaves turned out!  


I used the Glamour Uppercase Alphabet to stamp Say I Do and the Dated to stamp October, and wrote the rest of the date with my favorite pen--our journaling pen.  I embellished a little with our cute little gold puffies.

The next blogger on the hop to visit is Wendy Taylor.  If you get lost the complete list is at the bottom of the page.  Please visit us next month!  Thanks for visiting!  Feel free to comment, we'd love to hear from you!

Stampers with an Attitude-La Vie en Rose Blog Hop

Welcome to Stampers with an Attitude La Vie en Rose blog hop!  I am so excited that you've joined our team blog hop!  If you are coming from Catherine Nowak's blog, she participates in a lot of hops and is a talented part of our team!  

If you are just starting at my blog then you are in for a treat ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultants at the bottom of this post.   This month the hop is very small but great!
 I am teaching a scrapbooking class featuring this paper this month and I was trying to use "what I have" so I made all of these projects using the scraps left over when I created three two-page layouts!  My favorite two projects are the first two that include stamping and our Shin-han alcohol markers.  The last three are simple cards that are just paper and embellishments.  When you come to my scrapbook class you can learn how to create 6 scrapbook pages AND all these  fun projects and STILL have paper left over!!  What an amazing deal!!  




These two projects feature the stamp set C1619 So Many Smiles as well as our ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (they are so fun to color with as each alcohol-based marker includes one broad and one fine tip).  I stamped the images with our Z899 Memento Black Ink Pad and colored them in with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers.  I stamped the leaf images with a Z2197 Pear Stamp Pad.  Both the card and the Lotion/chapstick gift box were super fast and simple.   I visit a couple of ladies each month and I try to take a little giftie every month.  This pattern was shared with me by my friend Karen Scott and it's perfect!!  Thanks Karen! 


These last three cards were made with out stamping, just leftover paper and X7201C La Vie En Rose Complements, Z3078 La Vie En Rose Assortment, and some Z3023 White Shimmer Trim.  



To view the rest of the hop, just visit Melissa Robinson, one of our top team leaders!

Have a great day and use up your stash so you can buy more!!  Have a great week!
