Papertrey Ink: September Blog Hop


Hello and welcome!  This is my very first time participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop – I hope I’m doing this right :)  Our challenge is to reuse, repurpose or recycle packaging from our Papertrey packaging.  Luckily for me I placed an order earlier in the month and saved all the wrappings just for this challenge.


I ended up using the clear acetate inserts that come attached to the clear stamps as well as the corrugated cardboard that keeps the corners of the paper straight!  For the acetate, I first used my Blossoms Nestabilites and ran it through my Cuttlebug then again with my Swiss Dots embossing folder.  I layered it on top of a raspberry fizz paper blossom secured with a rhinestone brad.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful *hop*!

Hello and happy Friday!  I’m writing this at just past 8am Friday morning and I do not have a card to show you as of yet.  I’ve been working on once since 7am but it is NOT turning out.  I’m going to start a new one, but wanted you to know I didn’t forget or flake :)  I hope you will come back to visit me a bit later.   ETA:  I have a card!  Tah Dah!  :)
