Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design’s Blog Hop to celebrate the release of a new stamp set, "Always Here". If you just happened upon my blog today, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived from Kryssi's blog.

Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means the Design Team is showcasing my last sketch. :) I'd for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. Just remember to use the keywords SSD040 if you are uploading to any online galleries.
Now it is time to hop on over to Amanda's blog. :)
A HUGE THANK YOU to Skipping Stones for asking me to play along this month!!! I feel so fortunate! THANK YOU!!! :)

HiP hOp TiMe!

Morning! Are you all ready to HOP? AND did you see THE EXCITING news posted over on the Unity BLOG???? YEAH!!!! :)
Here is a little balloon shaped card that uses a sentiment from the store exclusive: DeLovely Whimsy.
Be sure to hop on over to the AMAZINGLY TALENTED Eryn! :) :)


Morning! I am up over at Paper Crafts Connection today and talking about paper pleating! :) I highlighted some different possibilities for you to easily add some pleated paper to your projects.
If you are looking for a more uniformed pleat, just be sure to score your paper before you fold. The example below is scored at every 1" and then 1/2".
Like to pleat? Want to give it a go?
I posted a challenge HERE for you to link up your creation and a chance to win a box of goodies from me! :) :) I would LOVE for you to play along! :)
