Bling it On blog hop!

We are doing a blog hop right here.... right now!!!

Our term for the APOS! inspiration team has quickly come to a close and we thought it would be fun to do a little blog hop to wrap up. So between the 6 of us we came up with the theme


Each of inspiration team members were tasked with creating a canvas using buttons, ribbon/lace and bling. I sure hope you take a moment and check them out.

The bog hop starts with Diana and will continue on through the following order:

Jen (me!)

Now onto my canvas. I started by using glimmermist on mine and didn't quite like
the shade so I used Colorbox fluid chalk ink on it. Then I added some Marshmellow glimmermist. Next I created my flowers by tearing a circle and then creating my petals by tearing down to the centre. Rolled the edges and added some more brown ink. Added some buttons and bling to the centre. My lace is down the one side and the butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch. The letters are cut with my Opposites Attract cricut cartridge. I am very pleased with the final product and can't wait to find the perfect spot for it in my house.

Now hop on over to Kelsey's blog to check out what she did.

Online crop time!

Once again it is time for the online crop over at the APOS forum. This month it will be hosted by Michelle. She has added the twist of having clues for the challenges for everyone to take a guess at what the theme is. What a cool idea! So if you have some free time this week head on over to the forum and check it out. Don't forget to show everyone your beautiful layouts.

Inspiration time again

Well it was my time again to inspire the girls of APOS with a challenge. I decided to use a challenge that I received during LOAD since I loved it so much. My challenge was to use your packaging from your scrappy supplies instead of just throwing them out. I did this layout during LOAD. The middle strip was from packaging I had for some sticker titles I own. I loved the pattern and love pink, black and white colour combo.

So I challenge you to start using up your packaging more. You can use them on your layouts, cards or any altered item really. Don't forget to come back and let me know what you did and provide a link so I can check it out.

Happy Scrapping!

Fun with my I-rock

Each month over at APOS! we showcase a scrappy product. For the month of September it was my turn. I decided to highlight the I-rock tool by Imaginsce. I absolutely love mine! Up until now I used it for my scrapbooking layouts and cards. I decided to branch out a bit and try other things. In looking around my house I found 2 thinks I could add some bling to.

First is a glass dish I bought at the dollar store. I decided to add a "C" to it for candy and add some of our favourite treats inside...Skittles! I tied ribbon around the lid and there we go all done and looking pretty for my kitchen counter.

Second I found some tealights that we purchased at Ikea years ago and had been put in a drawer. I added some orange bling and plan on putting this one (and a couple others) in my bathroom.

Lastly I scraplifted this card from Melinda Spinks (off the Imaginsce blog). I fell in love with it as soon as I saw hers. I made this card for a very special family friend that is getting married this weekend. This was used as her bridal shower card.
