It's a Papercraft Star Blog Hop!

WELCOME! WELCOME!
You're at the very first stop of the very first Papercraft Star Blog Hop! If you came here from the blog site, then you already know that there is a list of ALL the participants in the hop, but if you didn't, then that's where the journey begins.

For this Blog Hop the members of the Papercraft Star Design Team were asked to create some Christmas in July projects. Christmas will be here before we know it, so we have to get those ideas flowing. Make sure you visit all the team member blogs so you can soak up all the holiday spirit AND because we all have some blog candy to give away! :)

All you have to do for a chance to win my blog candy is become a follower of my blog and leave a comment below this post. If you'd like an extra chance at winning, then grab the Blog Hop button on my sidebar and display it on your own blog. How simple is that! The winner will be announced on Monday, July 26, so don't forget to come back and see who it is. It just might be you!

Here's the project that I created for the hop.



I wanted to do something vintage (my fave) and this is what came together for me. Here's what I used to make it.


Supplies:
Paper: Bazzill Kraft cardstock, Cloud Nine Designs Christmas Joy paper kit, Recollections cardstock
Stamp: Inkadinkadoo
Inks: Versafine Vintage Sepia, Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Tools: Nestabilities Large Deckled Rectangles (S4-202), Heidi Swapp Edge Distresser
Miscellaneous: Diamond Dust, Prima Poinsettia flowers and leaf, Vintage Shabby Seam Binding, pearl headpin and assorted beads

And here's the blog candy I'm offering.

(1) package A7 (5 x 7) Recollections Flat Cards and Envelopes in Pearlized Gold
(1) package Recollections Boutique Fleur Floral Embellishments

The next stop on this little journey is Regan so hop on over to her blog and see what she has in store.
