Scrap That! Welcome Summer Blog Hop

I'm so glad that you were able to join us today! Are you excited about all the fabulous prizes including a Cricut??? If you have arrived from the Scrap That! blog you are in the right place, if not then head back there to start.

Today I'm sharing a layout that I created of my son at 2 years (I know he looks like a girl, LOL) for a scrap class I am teaching, using 7 Gypsies papers, lace and Prima bling. I also used a Beggahuna sketch and Darien's flower tutorial on the Scrap That! blog. For the flowers I just used a five and a four petal punch (McGill and Martha Stewart) that I had and they turned out nicely. Plus I made the lace flower. Stay tuned for a tutorial on that one (NO SEWING required!).

Design Tip: Use beads to create a beautiful flower center (or steal them from another flower like Prima).

Before you hop along to Janis' blog (http://thereluctantscrapper.blogspot.com/) you will need my secret word for the blog hop sentence, which is... SCRAP. Remember to leave a comment here with your e-mail before you hop off my blog and you must BECOME A FOLLOWER TO ALL 8 BLOGS TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR PRIZES. Thanks for stopping by and good luck at winning one of the many awesome prizes! See my last post for more blog hop details too -- don't miss out on great prizes so read the blogs carefully!

Scrap That! Blog Hop June 11 and 12

Starting tomorrow there will be a huge Scrap That! summer blog hop with 8 blogs to visit and AMAZING prizes including a Cricut! Here are the contest details:

First you will need to become a follower of each of the 8 blogs (including mine) and grab our logo and post it on your blog. Next, leave a comment including your e-mail address on ALL the 8 participating blogs because in addition to the Scrap That! grand prizes, each blog will have a random draw for a paper crafting kit from Sassafras Lass.

You will then need to swing by the Scrap That! Facebook page and become a friend and become a member of our social community.

So, while you are blog hopping, you will want to look for the "SPECIAL" word on each blog and once you have all 8, create a sentence and e-mail it to info@scrapthat.ca to be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE - a Cricut!

Now, watch for the details on one of the blogs about playing Scrap That! Spot This! for a chance to win one of the June sampler kits which contains over $33 in product... PLUS information on our store hide'n seek game - "Hound Hunt" for another prize!

Is your head swimming with all these contests and prizes? It's gonna be GREAT!!!
