Pause Dream Enjoy 10 Year Birthday Blog Hop and Giveaway!!

Hello, everyone and happy Friday!! I was so excited when Janis of Pause Dream Enjoy asked me to help celebrate her 10 year blog birthday!! Janis is an amazing and talented crafter and one of the first people I met in blogland seven years ago when I started my blog. Her projects are always so creative and beautiful and I guarantee you'll be inspired when you visit her blog!! I'm so honored and happy to be sharing this event with her :)


Each stop on the hop will have a prize!! To be eligible, leave a comment on all 10 hop stops (9 more including mine). Be a FOLLOWER of all 10 blogs. Winners will be announced on each blog for their prize on Monday, May 28th.


I am giving away a Lemoncraft Yesterday 6x6 Paper Stack...the latest release from Lemoncraft, and the papers I've used on my project today!! I will shop anywhere :)


Since we are celebrating Janis' blog birthday, I created two celebrate shaker cards. I've used Lemoncraft's Yesterday papers, which you can find in my Etsy Store HERE. To cut the frame for the shaker, I used a Frantic Stamper Art Deco Frame. Celebrate is a Penny Black Doodles die.

The ribbon is from DL.ART (use the code LF222 for a 10% discount) and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Tucked under the flowers and cut with Lemoncraft Leaves paper (in my ETSY store HERE) are Memory Box Chloe Stems, Sue Wilson Orange Blossom Leaves, and Concord & 9th Layering Leaves. I added prills for texture, too. It's hard to tell in the pictures, but the butterflies have been brushed with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter Gloss pen for sparkle.

I filled this shaker with Tonic Studios Nuvo Pure Sheen Cross My Heart Glitter.

This one was filled with Tonic Studios Nuvo Pure Sheen Peacock Feathers.

Swing by and see what everyone else on the hop created to help celebrate Pause Dream Enjoy's 10th birthday. You are sure to be inspired. And don't forget to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win!! Here is the Blog Hop Line-Up:

Hello, everyone and happy Monday!! I hope you are having a wonderful start to the week!! I have a couple of cards to share with you today, thanks to the amazingly generous and wonderful company, Altenew!! #AltenewLove

I was so excited to open a letter the other day and find the enclosed stamp set!! How awesome, right??!! Personalized stamps!! What an amazing company!! I absolutely love their layering stamps and dies :)

For these cards, I used a Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to stamp the image on heavyweight black cardstock with Versamark and then emboss with Sparkle N Sprinkle Gold Detail embossing powder. Then I lightly watercolored the image and leaves and dabbed off most of the color.

The frame is from Altenew's Build a Wreath die set. It was also embossed with SNS Gold Detail, and then popped up with foam tape for dimension.

The sentiment is from Altenew's Rose stamp set.

I want to sincerely thank everyone at Altnew for this unexpected and adored gift!! #AltenewLove !!

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day :)
