Stampin' Addicts Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop Stop #7
Hi there! Some of you may be joining me because you've been hoppin' around the internet checking in with different Stampin' Addicts to see some fantabulous projects created with Sale-a-Bration items. I think that the ladies have outdone themselves once again! The Blog Tour "officially" starts at 12:00 pm EST but most of the stops should be live at 10:00 am EST. So, if you're hitting some bumps, check back a little later and it should all work perfectly!! :)
If you're following the Blog Tour, you just came here from stop #6 which was Sharon's blog Created By You, where she featured Whimsical Words. Don't you just love her projects?!?!
My projects will be featuring Whimsical Words as well. That's right, you're supposed to be seeing double - it's featured twice on the tour!!. This set is one of the exclusive Sale-a-Bration 2010 stamp sets that will never be seen in an Idea Book & Catalog. That's part of what makes Sale-a-Bration stamp sets so special. That, and they're FREE!!! LOL
On Thursday I will tell you some more details about my projects below, and I will also show some additional pictures to explain them a little more thoroughly. Make sure to check back on Thursday to see how I lined up my butterflies - it's a really handy trick (as long as you're using Whisper White CS as your base!!)
The picture you see to the left was my inspiration. I wanted to make something for my daughter and I used her bedspread for the colors. She loves what I made her, and of course my other daughter really wants one now too. I love my girls :) Now I just need a dinosaur punch to make one for my little man! ;)
As I mentioned before, check back on Thursday to see what I did to get my butterflies perfectly lined up.
