Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the Design Team Birthday Blog Hop 7/30-7/31


If you just happened upon this hop, please be sure to go back to the start athttp://vintageheartfeltdesigns.blogspot.com/
I’m sure you’re all familiar with a standard blog hop - a long list of blogs, and you hop from one to the other leaving comments...
Well, this one has a twist. This should be a super efficient hop for you, the hopper...
We’re linking up design team blogs instead of the individual bloggers blogs... So you only have to make 8 hops, and you’ll get to see 57 cards! This is our first time doing this, so we’d love to hear what you think!


**Grand Prize Blog Candy**

Some of the design teams will be offering up blog candy, and if you’d like to be eligible for the grand prize, you must follow all the design team blogs and comment on all the posts.
The grand prize is a $20 gift card to A Crafters Haven, online craft store, sponsored by Laverne, the owner of Crafter’s Haven - http://acraftershaven.net/
Some additional goodies will also be awarded....
And some of our stops will have some great candy as well!  Quick Quotes is offering a $450 prize at their stop. FREE tuition at a private reserve weekend + 1/2 off tuition for a friend!
In order to be eligible for the grand prize, you need to follow all of the blogs, and comment on each DT post in the hop, and leave a comment at www.craftycardgallery.blog spot.com
The grand prize winner will be selected randomly from the comments there.


**Complete Lineup** 

So here’s the complete lineup and how the hop works....


The 8 members of the Vintage Heartfelt Blog, with Design Team Lead Denise, have all posted their cards here: http://vintageheartfeltdesigns.blogspot.com/

From there, you’ll link to Design Team Lead Kristy’s blog where her 6 members have posted their cards:http://www.scraptasticalkreations.blogspot.com/  YOU ARE HERE

Then you’ll stop by Design Team Lead Gill’s blog, where her 9 members have posted their cards:http://creationsbygillm.blogspot.com/

Then you’ll stop by Design Team Lead Lisa’s blog, where her 9 members have posted their cards:http://www.blogquickquotes.com/

Then you’ll stop by Design Team Lead Theresa’s blog, where her 9 members have posted their cards:http://www.thescrapbookingqueen.com/

You’ve only made 5 stops so far but you’ve seen a lot of cards! Your next stop will be Design Team Lead Kassidy’s blog, where her 9 members have posted their cards:http://www.inkingitupcrazy.blogspot.com/

You’re nearing the end at your stop at Design Team Lead Jalisa’s Blog where her 6 members have posted their cards:  http://www.patchesofpink.com/

Berry Sweet Girl

Hello Scrappy Friends
I ran a contest on my Facebook Fan page Scraptastical Kreations and one lucky winner won a handmade two page layout create by me. This is the layout that I created for the lucky winner! I LOVE how this one came out. It all flowed together so nicely and I cannot be any happier with it! The bear with the strawberry is a journal box that goes behind the photo mat, and can be used for journaling or an extra photo.  



If you're looking for the paper piecing patterns used in this layout, you can visit Scraptastical Kreations website and check out all the super cute and super simple patterns available. 

Also, right now we are doing a FB fan giveaway. We want to hit 1250 fans and would love for you to stop by. When we hit 1250 fans we will be giving away this super cute Sophisticated Scallops set. These are perfect for cards, layouts, mini's and the like.  So stop by the fan page HERE and help us reach our goal so you can get these for free too! 

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek. 

Happy Scrappin'

Day 3 Project

I wanted to do a little bit of scrapping for myself today so I decided I would create this single layout. This is my son on his 5th birthday. I used DCWV Celebrate stack and the "Let's Celebrate" paper piecing pattern from Scraptastical Kreations. This is my typical personal scrapping style with a paper piecing spin. I LOVE how this came out.



Day 2 Project

I had a horrible migraine last night and wasn't able to get a paper project done for you all, but I did get this sweet digital card done. I used the cake from the "Let's Celebrate" set at Scraptastical Kreations. The other elements are various free digital elements.


Now on to my project for you today!! I created this sweet birthday card using one of Scraptastical Kreations paper piecing patterns. I used the Birthday Bear single pattern and the Celebration DCWV paper stack.

Little Cowboy

Howdy everyone!!

Here is a quick layout that I created the other day. This is the first layout I have scrapped for myself in quite some time. I have to say it was actually nice to scrap for myself for once. I'm hoping to do more scrapping for myself here in the very near future. I am so far behind on my own scrapping and the photos just continue to pile up!! I think I forgot what it was like to actually scrap for myself - it felt kinda weird. : ) 

So.... here is the layout I created "Little Cowboy" this is my youngest nephew when he was about 9/10 months old. He is now 6 years old. That goes to show you just how behind I am! Needless to say I haven't scrapped any of my boys' photos in a long time either! 


For this layout I used some very old Cosmo Cricket paper and the paper piecing patterns are from my Western set at Scraptastical Kreations

Here is the entire Western Set 
Thank you for taking a peek at my layout. I hope to be sharing many more with you very soon!! : )

Happy Scrappin'

Now on to my project. I just learned how to create digital layouts, and I've been having a lot of fun playing around with them so I decided I would share one of the one's I have been playing around with the last couple of days. I'm still a total newbie to this type of scrapbooking, but I enjoy playing around with the digital elements. I still have a lot to learn, but I will get there. I can't complain for a beginner. : )
