Celebrating 8 Years with Carson's Creations



Hello, everyone and happy Saturday!! Today we are celebrating Carson's Creations 8 year blogaversary!! Georgiana has been creating amazing and inspiring projects for eight years and we've been blog buddies almost that long!! I'm so excited to be sharing this celebration with her today :)

There are 8 stops and you won't want to miss any of them! If you are here from Sherrie's blog then you are in the right place. If you just happened onto my blog today and would like to join us, then start at Carson's Creations ~ Georgiana's blog. There is also a complete line-up at the end of this post just in case you need it.

What would a hop be without Blog Candy?!?! Since this is a celebration, each blog has a bit of candy that is randomly being given away. Yay for candy!! Be sure to be a FOLLOWER and COMMENT on each blog for your chance to win. If you are a follower, your comment could be randomly drawn to win some fantastic prizes.

My Project!!


Since this blog hop is about a celebration, I chose to celebrate the arrival of summer, my favorite season, later this month :)


The papers for these cards are from Lemoncraft's Everyday Spring collection, which you can find in my Etsy store HERE.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from DL.ART. Tucked under the flowers are Memory Box Chloe Stems, LaLa Land Open Leaf Fourish, Frantic Stamper Assorted Foliage dies. Prills were added for texture.


A Memory Box Stitched Circle was layered over a Sue Wilson Flora die. Hello is a Penny Black Doodles die.

I am entering these in the following challenges:

1) Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge ~ Anything Goes
2) Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes
3) Jo's Scrap Shack Funday Friday ~ Anything Goes

Blog Candy!!

I am giving way a Lemoncraft 6x6 paper stack of the papers I used for these cards :) Be sure to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment!!

You have until Sunday night, June 3rd at 9:00 pm EST to hop along with us. All winners will be announced on Monday, June 4th on each individual blog. The winners will also be posted on Carson's Creation Facebook page after all the winner's posts go live on each blog.

Here is the Blog Hop Line-up...

Lisa, A Mermaid's Crafts (you are here)
