Papercraft Star designer & judge BLOG HOP!

Hey Everyone!!!

I am so excited to be a part of this, and hope you can take a few minutes throughout the weekend to hop along and see what everyone else has created as well for our big Christmas in July blog hop!

For my Christmas in July project, I've created a wall hanging for our house. I just love the more vintage greens and reds, instead of solid & bright colors. I used Wild Card & Storybook for this.

All of us, designers and judges from
Papercraft Star have decided to create a project with the theme of Christmas in July, and do a little hop for this weekend where our viewers can follow the links onward to get inspiration, gather ideas and hopefully win some goodies!

So, without further adieu- I want to thank you all soooo much for visiting my blog! I hope you got here from Kristina's World, if not, and you found me through some other site or are a regular follower, you'll want to start at the
Papercraft Star Challenge Blog and start from the beginning and hop on from there! Each member of our team has some great blog candy to giveaway, so be sure to visit each stop along the way and enter yourself for their drawings and maybe you will find some more blogs you'd like to follow!

I did mention that there is some candy involved, right? I am glad none of you missed that!

I have TWO candy kits to giveaway, the first being this wonderful packet of scrapbooking goodies from Rusty Pickle for one lucky winner!

It includes:

5 sheets of Rusty Pickle, double sided patterned paper from the Girlfriends line

1 set (two sheets!) of Rusty Pickle Alphabet Stickers in White Chocolate Bunnies

3 Rusty Pickle Mini Manilla Folders

1 Rusty Pickle Alphabet Coupon Book, Girlfriends ABC

10 sheets of coordinating cardstock

Of course, there is a catch... so here are the details!

1. Follow my blog.

2. Add my button to your blog.

3. Leave a comment and let me know you are entered for the first blog candy!

4. That's all! Couldn't be easier, right?! (you can still enter for the second one as well... read further!)

I will pick a random winner to win via on Monday July 26th & post it here promptly in the morning!

You just need to get in touch with me via email if it is you!

My 2nd Blog Candy is a goodie as well!

Now if you just want to follow my blog, but not add the button, thats okay too, but I can't give you the Rusty Pickle Kit-- so instead I have a pretty cool set I've created filled with all the things you need to make 10 quick and adorable greeting cards. I've also designed an example card, that you could make 10 of with all the goodies you will recieve! Of course, you can make whatever you want with the stuff, it's just worked out for those of you who want or need some cards and don't know where to start. I want to help you get into cardmaking, if you already are or not. If you are; you know how nice it is to have a 'go to stash' that you use to make nice, quick cards for occasions that race by at a record speed (because we NEVER forget a thing.. at least I don't!).

Included in this Quick Card Kit by Dawn is:

10 precut & scored card bases

10 precut patterned paper layers

1 piece of white cardstock

1 spool of coordinating pink ribbon

1 box of adhesive mounting squares

1 silver gel pen

of course, 10 linen paper envelopes

also, one example card, to see one way to make 10 quick and adorable cards from the contents of only this set

To be on the hook for this candy for must:

1. Follow my blog.

2. Follow the Papercraft Star Challenge Blog.

3. Leave me a comment and let me know that you are entered for the 2nd blog candy! (if you are also entered for the 1st blog candy, you'll get to leave 2 comments!)

4. I will pick a winner at the same time as my 1st candy and post it here Monday morning!

ALright, that's all I have for you folks today. You're going to want to hop on over to the next blog in the lineup, my good friend, Beth over at Runs with Scraps. I know she has some delicious candy for you to indulge in as well!

If you get lost, you can always come back here and all the blogs are linked below! Don't forget to come back to let me know you left your comments on the blogs to enter and win the candy!

Now here is the lineup for this whole weekend. We will END THE HOP on Sunday evening. Please pay attention to when each designer/judge will post their winners (if there is candy!)

Your weekend lineup:

1. Tracy
4. Kristina
5. Dawn (that's me!)
8. Liz
9. Caroline
Steph D
Stephanie A

I hope you all have a good time and get to partake in the hop over the weekend, everyone should be able to get themselves into a few drawings!

Cheers & Enjoy!
