Scrap and Stamp Blog Hop!



Welcome to Scrap and Stamp's first ever blog hop!!!!! If you just popped in, why don't you join us at the beginning at the Scrap and Stamp blog. If you came from Regina's blog then you are in the right place! :)

First let me tell you about why I LOVE Scrap and Stamp and I am passionate about their challenges. I am a stamper. I am also a scrapper. Most people who have stamps tend to think of using them for cards, and neglect to add them to their layouts. Stamps are such a fun way to make your layouts unique. Plus, you get more use out of your stamps and don't have to buy a bunch of extra embellishments! :) So why don't you join us and challenge yourself to add stamping to your scrapbooking!

Ok...there are many prizes and I will get to those, but first let me show you my layout. We used my sketch (sketch 182) for the hop. Here's the sketch:



And here is the layout I made based on the sketch:


Supplies: Cardstock--Bazzill, Papers--Basic Grey, Stamp--Tattered Angels, Ink--Stampin' Up!, Small Bracket paper--Jenni Bowlin Studios, Flowers, Pearls and Fabric Letters--Prima Marketing, Chipboard--Rusty Pickle, Lace--Websters Pages, 3D Paint--Scribbles.

It kinda took on a life of it's own (which is fine when using sketches). It also seems so much more busier in the photo...but oh well. I hadn't intended on using those pictures...they were my out-takes from the other day. But I have done so many "love" pages lately that I decided to use them. Besides, they show a fun side to our relationship.

Here are some close up's of my page:



Now on to the prizes...

1. One person who leaves a comment on ALL the blogs in the hop will win this (donated by Stamp and Create: Basic Grey Sugar Rush 12x12 scrapbook pack, Basic Grey Hearthrobe clear stamps, and Wags 'n Whiskers "Steal a Kiss" Rubber Stamp):



2. One person who does a layout based on the sketch ("Love" theme), will receive this (4 sheets of seven double sided pp, 1 package of pink/white flourish rubons, 4 packages of frosting...all from Glitz Designs):



3. One person who becomes a follower of Scrap and Stamp, will win this ("Tango" kit from Studio Calico):



4. And then I have my own personal RAK to one lucky winner who leaves a comment on MY blog (Timeless Romance stamp set from Tattered Angels):



Notice that I used one of these stamps on my layout above. :)

Winners will be chosen on Monday, Feb. 8th.

Ok....now...

Hop on to the fabulous Chris Severs!!!!
