Imagine Crafts® / Tsukineko® & Avery Elle Blog Hop!

Today is a fun day because Imagine Crafts® / Tsukineko® & Avery Elle have paired up for a blog hop!  There are going to be a lot of amazing projects on the hop today showing how well Avery Elle and Imagine Crafts / Tsukineko products work together.  We also have a fun giveaway, so be sure to visit all of the blogs participating.

For my project, I wanted to do something a little different than a card. When I think of stamping, I immediately think of card making... except my cards aren't the best so I usually try to leave that to the pros and don't embarrass myself by posting them here. I decided to make a tag since I'm on a tag making kick lately. I had my Authentique "Fresh" collection laying on my desk from a project last week, and I thought it went PERFECTLY with the Avery Elle "Knotty" stamp set that I picked out. Obviously, I also grabbed some of my favorite inks that always match everything so perfectly, my Memento Dew Drops!

I used one of my wedding photos for this tag with the intent to hang it in my craft room as a decor type project.

I really loved the sentiments in this stamp set, this one was perfect!

Now hop along and check out all of the fabulous projects along the way! Here is the entire list of blog hop participants:

May Arts Stampendous/Coredinations Blog Hop

It's time for a whole week of super inspiration with May Arts RibbonCore'dinations and Stampendous.  The design teams have partnered to bring you not only amazing projects but fantastic giveaways as well.

Each day this week, 2-3 of the designers from each team will be bringing you projects and a chance to win some awesome prizes.  All you have to do is comment to win!  

For my project today, I REALLY wanted to use some of the bookmarks from Core'dinations and of course a variety of glitter from Stampendous! 

So here's what I came up with! 

I added some May Arts crochet lace to the top along with some flowers from May Arts. I dipped the flowers in some glue and then added some of the Crystal Snow glitter from Stampendous. 

On the bottom of the tag, I added some Stampendous Pearlized Mica Fragments to look like scales or waves to go with the nautical theme. This was my first time using the Mica Fragments, they are beautiful, but very messy! I tried to heat emboss to get them to stick and blew them all over my craft room. Once I figured out how to use them, they gave my little tag a beautiful effect. on top of these I added some Vintage Blue Embossing Tinsel.

May Arts Design Team Call Submission

Have you heard the news? May Arts is having a design team call! This has honestly been one of the best design teams that I've had the pleasure of being on, so re-applying wasn't even an option for me, it is was something that I HAD to do! I have enjoyed working with The Ribbon Lady (Bethney) as well as the rest of the talented team, and not to mention the FABULOUS ribbon! I'm hoping to get to come back for round 2! 

Here are a few of my favorite projects that I have created with May Arts Ribbon products. Seriously, it's the ONLY ribbon you should own, hands down the best on the market! 

And here is a link to one of my all time favorite tutorials that I did for May Arts (this was my Round 2 submission last year), I hope I make it to Round 2 this year! I have lots of ideas swirling around in my head! 

Thanks for stopping by today!
