Practical Scrappers and Scrap That Poetry Blog Hops

Welcome to my blog!  You may be joining me from 1 of 2 blog hops that I am participating in this weekend.  If you are looking for Scrap That Poetry's blog hop, it will be mentioned after Practical Scrappers.

Thank you for stopping by my blog during the Practical Scrappers Designer Blog Hop.  Today I have created 2 cards to share with you.  Since our challenge this week was embossing, I used heat embossing on my 1st card for the sentiment.  On my second card, I heat embossed the truck and then I used Stampin up Watercolor crayons and colored my images and added Diamond Glaze to add some shine! I am giving away two RAK's (pictured below) and I am able to ship it internationally.  In order to qualify you need to become a follower here and leave a comment on this post.  I will announce the winner on Monday, January 25th so make sure to check back in!





You should have arrived here from Jaime's blog.  Your next stop on the Practical Scrapper's Blog hop is Erika.  If this was your first stop head over to Practical Scrappers to start at the beginning of the hop.  The designers are giving away some great prizes- you don't want to miss your chance!


Welcome to Scrap That Poetry's 1st Blog Hop! The hop begins on Friday, January 22nd at 9 am EST and ends on Sunday evening.  If this was your 1st stop, go back to Scrap That Poetry to hear all the details.  We are giving away a $15 online gift certificate to one lucky hopper to their choice of online stores.

This is your 2nd stop on the Scrap That Poetry Blog Hop.  We are featuring the poem, How Do I Love Thee by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.  I created the following layout using the words from the poem as my inspiration to tell my husband how much he means to me. I used Sketchy Thursday's latest sketch. I created this challenge blog in October to combine my love of poetry and scrapbooking.  I hope you come back and participate in our biweekly challenges.  Our current challenge is posted here.


During our blog hop, the current design team will be introducing our newest design team members who begin with one of my favorite poems in February!  I am very lucky to introduce Tessa Buys to you.  Tessa is a stay-at-home-mom to three little boys.  She recently moved to Wyoming from Northern California where she was a dance teacher/ choreographer.  She has her own Etsy shop called Precocious Paper.  I am thrilled to have her join Scrap That Poetry.  Your next stop on the hop is Tessa's blog.

Before you leave, if you would like to qualify for my RAK (pictured below), you need to become a follower of my blog, post a comment and tell me what your favorite poem is. 

I am giving away 1 RAK for the Practical Scrapper's blog hop and 1 for Scrap That Poetry's blog hop!
I hope you enjoy both Blog Hops this weekend!
