Jo's Scrap Shack Blogaversary Blog Hop!

Happy Sunday!! Today we are celebrating Jo's Scrap Shack's 3rd Blogaversary with a blog hop full of amazing inspiration showcasing projects with a Birthday theme!! I was so honored when my sweet friend Jo asked me to be a part of her celebration!!


You should have arrived from Amanda. If you are just stopping by or visiting me from your dashboard, you'll want to start at the the beginning at Jo's Blog so you don't miss any of the projects. Plus, Jo has an awesome prize up for grabs!!


Look at all those amazing goodies!! To be eligible to win this prize, you must:
  1. Visit each designer's blog on the hop
  2. Follow & leave a comment on each blog
You have until Midnight, May 4th to leave comments. Jo will announce the random winner from one of the designers blogs on her blog on Tuesday, May 5th.

Now for my project...


I created a gift bag and matching card to celebrate a birthday :)


For the bag, I used several layers of Prima papers sewn together, the edges distressed with a Zutter DIA. A Prima Junk Yard Findings zipper was used to "unzip" the paper. The butterflies are Memory Box Isabella butterflies, covered in sugar coating and popped up with foam tape.


Memory Box Chloe Stems and Botanical Stem leaves are tucked among the Wild Orchid Crafts blooms. Happy is a My Creative Time die, also covered with sugar coating. The banners are Taylored Expressions Banner dies. Birthday is also from My Creative Time. The button on the crinkle ribbon is a Poppystamps Stitched Button die.


The card was made basically the same as the bag, but the butterflies are punches.


You can sorta see that I used a Chloe stem for the inside of the card.


And because I can't just make one card, I made two!! This one with my favorite color of pink :)

I am entering this in the following challenges:

1. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
2. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
3. DL.Art - May Linky
4. Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday
5. Decorate to Celebrate - Anything Goes

I have blog candy!!


To be eligible to win this Die-Versions Stars Punch Border die, all you have to do is:
  1. Leave a comment with a way to contact you. That's it!!
  2. For a second chance to win, stop back by on Tuesday for the Die-Versions Mother's Day Blog Hop and Card Challenge and leave a comment.
Candy is open worldwide. Winner will be selected via random.org on 5/9 from all the comments on both posts.

Your next stop on the hop is Bridget. Here's the entire lineup in case you get lost along the way or want to revisit anyone:
