Scor-Pal & Clearsnap Blog Hop!

I'm so excited because today there is another great blog hop on the schedule!! This time Scor-Pal is hopping along with our friends at Clearsnap. With a Summer Fun theme, both design teams have come together to create some wonderful summer inspired projects with our Scor-Pals and lots of Clearsnap products!

Here is today's Hop List
■Clearsnap Blog 
■Mary Dawn Quirindongo
■Lisa Andrews  YOU ARE HERE
■Charlotte Jenkins
■Tami Sanders

Here is my project.  I made an adorable gift bag for my project.  You can find instructions for the gift bag HERE

I made the flower with a Stampin Up! punch and scored it with my Scor-Pal.  I also used my Scor-Pal to create lines (or pleats) on the cover flap, you can see them very good because of the color of the paper but trust me they are there!!

Designer Paper is from Bo Bunny
Clearsnap Supplies:

Wedding Card - CCT

Hi everyone!  Today is Thursday and that means it's time for another challenge at Cute Card Thursday.  This week's theme is "Wedding".  Perfect!!  I have a wedding that I am going to in September!  When we lived in West Virginia we had such dear neighbors and I can hardly believe it but their oldest is getting married.  I'm so excited to go back to the old "hood" and see everyone.

I used my most favorite couple image from Magnolia and colored them with Distress Inks.  The paper is from Magonolia also.  I am not sure what kind of fold this is, I just kind of played around with it and this is what I came up with.  I just love these butterflies from Martha Stewart, they are so elegant and soft.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a wonderful day!

Our First Blog Hop at Scor-Pal!

Good Morning everyone!!  I am so glad you stopped by!  Today is our very first Scor-pal blog hop and we are also celebrating the first anniversary of our friends at The Twinery. Our two teams have joined forced for an amazing line up of projects that will show you the wonderful things you can create using your Scor-pal along with baker’s twine from The Twinery! From boxes and bags to cards and 3D projects the creativity by these two teams is sure to please!

There are two fabulous prizes for you to win and all you have to do is leave a comment on everyone's blog! 

Here is the prize from Scor-pal

a Scor-Buddy!!

 And here is the prize from The Twinery

A great assortment of baker's twine!

 Here's my project!  I used the The Garden Cart project from The Project Center over at Scor-pal.  I used baker's twine from The Twinery in a few different colors to wrap my flowers and umbrella with.  My designer paper is from My Mind's Eye, Stella Rose and the yellow was scraps that I had.  The stems and umbrella arm are made from bamboo skewers, it made it really easy to position them on the cart!  I punched the flowers using the scalloped punch from Stamp up!  Oh!  and those awesome buttons were from JoAnns.  I had so much fun making this project, you should give it a try!

If you came here by way of Angelica Suarez's blog, you are on the right track. If not, make sure you start at the beginning over at The Twinery's blog. Since The Twinery is celebrating all week, you'll have five days to enjoy this hop, so relax and have fun!

I'm so glad you stopped by! I hope I've inspired you to give the Scor-pal a try.  Please make sure you leave a comment on my blog because you don't want to miss out on the terrific prizes!

The deadline for commenting is 11:59pm EST, Friday, August 19th.

Your next stop on the hop is Deena's blog. 

Have Fun!!
