SPS Blog Hop - Love You A Latte! *Giveaway Alert*

Welcome to the Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop! You should have gotten here from Dorcas' blog! She's a newbie to the team and we "old gals" are SOOO excited about the new gals! So please make sure you have stopped by everyone's blogs to say "hello"! :) 

I could not be MORE THRILLED to represent Shop Pumpkin Spice for another year!!! I love her prices, her product, her constant attempt to keep the shipping rates to a minimum and now....... her KITS!!! Yes, you read right, Shop Pumpkin Spice is now creating monthly kits! The first one is only  $15.95!!! Check it out below or click on the link HERE to take you directly to the buying page! woot woot! :) Am I getting one? Yes, yes I am. 

We designers can't buy them until it goes live tonight with the hop so you better not buy them all so that they are sold out when I wake up tomorrow California time! I'll be pointing fingers! ;) 

Here is the project I made for the hop. It was supposed to be "your style" and while I was tempted to do a shaped card, this is still very me. :) 


*Designer's Tip: It is REALLY hard to get a sponge or something else in the cracks and crevices of the letters. I used my inking tip for the d-stress tool by Imaginisce (the inking tip unfortunately ONLY comes in the carrying cases for the d-stress and SPS does not carry the cases, but they DO carry the d-stress tool. You can find the cases at your big chain scrapbook stores.) It attaches to the end of the d-stress. You turn the d-stress on so that it spins and just dip it in the ink and ink wherever you want with a spinning head! IN person the inking is a LOT more even, but because of the photo it picks up some of the darker spots and highlights them. Oh well! :) *

Court, this is totally a Courtney-style card, and you know how I love her! As usual you make me want to CASE you. Always so much fab inspiration on your blog.

I hope your move is going smoothly, Sweetie. No pressure, but sleep is over-rated. Get unpacked this weekend, forego sleep, so we can craft together next week. No pressure. :) Love you!

Beautiful work! I need to get this cartridge. I also am cricut obsessed. I'm a new follower!

Linda said...

This is Great! And another cartridge I don't have:( LOL Thanks for the tip to destress. I don't know about that tool either and I am a tool lover. I will have to check it out. I read in your bio that you are a Provo Craft lover. Do you have any tips for cutting snowflakes. I was cutting the ones from When it's cold out side for the past three days and it is very hard to get a clean cut. I went through 4 blades to mates and lots of paper. Any tips? Thanks

Michelle said...
