PTI February Blog Hop

It's PTI Blog Hop time! This month's theme is scallops.

Here's my card, where I included some vertical scallops. I overlapped two rows, one cut with the large scallops and one with the small scallop die.


I also used the Mat Stack 4 die, Big Birthday Wishes and By the Numbers Dies. The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey collection, Hopscotch.


Thanks for hopping by!

Thinking of you, always

We have a tiny purple crocus poking out in our yard! Spring flowers may just be my favorite! In honor of the upcoming season, I made a card using the beautiful tuilips from "Wishing You".


I stamped a few extra of the blooms, cut them out and used small pop dots to pop them up on my card.

Get Well Soon

Do you ever create a whole card and then really dislike it when you're finished??

That would be this card for me! I wanted to make something to enter the latest Make It Mondays challenge--to use a vellum sentiment strip. I had the idea to have several strips of vellum laying diagonally across the card. So far, so good.

MIM vellum

I heat embossed "Get Well Soon" onto the lowest of the three strips. I stamped the background dots. I cut the bottom part of the three layers of cs with Edgers #1. Sewed the bit together. Still okay.

Then I added a ribbon diagonally, thinking it would draw the eye. Don't like it.

And then I die cut and stamped the butterflies and positioned and repositioned them about 14 times. Don't like them. I couldn't get them in the right place, and I feel they are too big also. The last step was to color some gems with a Copic marker and add them to the card.

Oh well, it's a learning experience, I guess! This card uses the latest WPlus9 color challenge . (Kraft, Lilac, Turquoise and White).

Papertrey Ink Customer Favorites

Papertrey Ink is celebrating it's 4th Anniversary! And today it's hosting a contest in which customers post and link their own favorite project from 2010 in a chance to win a huge prize! See all the details here at Nicole's blog.

I'm going to repost my favorite project that I made in 2010, a scrapbook page.

First and Last LO

This page features photos of my kids on their first day of preschool, back in September 2009, and their last day of school in June 2010. It was particularly special as it was my daughter's first year at preschool and my son's last.

First and Last close 1

I used a ton of PTI product on this: the stamp sets School Time and School Time Additions, the large scallop border die, stamps from Mini Scrapbook Series: Library Ledger and Tabs.

First and Last LO close 2

I did lots of fun background stamping and heat embossing. For all the details you can visit my original post .

Have a great weekend!
