ScrapbookPal Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog!!  We are having our first ever ScrapbookPal Design Team Blog Hop.  If you have just happened to arrive by chance and not with the blog hop, go to the ScrapbookPal blog to start at the beginning and join us this weekend while the design team shares some projects and a little about ourselves, as well as a chance for you to win a wonderful prize. 

Here is a little about me:
My name is Amy and I love to scrapbook, make cards, and altered items.  I have been paper crafting for about 8 years.  I enjoy blogging about my paper crafting and I am so happy to have the friends that I have made in the blogging/scrapbooking community.  When I first started shopping online for scrapbooking supplies, I came upon a website called ScrapbookPal and placed an order.  My order came so fast, I didn't hesitate to order again and many times after that.  I love shopping at ScrapbookPal because I always get speedy and friendly service as well as great prices and free shipping on all of my orders over $25.  I am so honored to be a part of their first design team.

Today, I am sharing a project from the Wall Decor and More cartridge..... 
Supplies:
Cardstock, border punch: Stampin' Up!
Die-cuts: Cricut with Wall Decor and More
Embossing: Cuttlebug with Spots and Dots embossing folder
Ink: Colorbox Fluid Chalk Cat's Eye
Other: Imaginisce i-rock with mirror glam rocks, Sewing machine and thread, dimensional adhesive

I found this 6 inch by 8 inch shadow box frame at Michaels.  I used my Cuttlebug and Spots and Dots embossing folder to emboss the pink background cardstock.  I cut, inked with Colorbox Fluid Chalk Cat's Eye ink pad, and layered the images and sentiment from the Wall Decor and More cartridge.  I adhered these with dimensional adhesive to the white piece of cardstock that was punched, glam rock set, and sewn together with the green cardstock.  I then put it all on top of the pink embossed cardstock with dimensional adhesive.

The blog hop goes from today, August 20th until midnight on Monday, August 23rd.  Did you know that at the end of the hop, there will be a winner randomly chosen to win an INSTOCK Cricut cartridge of the winners choice from ScrapbookPal?  I would love for one of my blog followers to win, so go on over to the ScrapbookPal blog to get all the details and start hopping.

Blog Hop List:
Amy Crockett ----You Are Here
Tammy White --------Next Stop

I would love it if you wanted to follow along on my blog, but it is not a requirement to win the prize at the end.  Thanks for visiting!!

Hugs,
