Welcome to the Paper Girls' Blog Hop to celebrate our 2nd Anniversary. It is hard to believe that it has been 2 years since 9 friends started a little challenge blog. Happy blogiversary to us!
We have had a fun two years getting to know you and seeing your projects. IWe've said goodbye to a few of the original Paper Girls (Judy, Sheryl, and Kyla) and now today we are saying bye to Heather. We appreciate all the work these girls did and wish them all well. Life gets busy. And crazy. And we know all too well that sometimes crafting and blogs have to be pushed aside for awhile. We will miss you girls, but you will always be Paper Girls!!!
Okay, now back to the hop! The fabulous store Creative Embellishments is offering a $25 gift certificate to our random winner! Creative Embellishments carries wood veneer shapes, chipboard, and stamps. They have so many wonderful designs to choose from. Please give them a big thanks from The Paper Girls over at their blog or facebook page.
For our hop today we have created projects that have a Celebration theme and that use either wood veneer or chipboard shapes. For my project, I created a fun little card using the Foxy stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop, and a wooden speech bubble and wooden dots. My kids are obsessed with the song, "What does the Fox Say?" So when I saw this set, I knew it would be perfect for celebrating my son's 7th birthday.
I love adding wooden elements to projects. You can color them (like I did on this card), you can stamp on them (like on this scrapbook page), or like I did here, add a Thicker to it (I also added a little ink around the edge of the speech bubble). If you haven't used wooden or chipboard elements, I encourage you to try them. If you don't have any in your stash, Creative Embellishments is a great place to start. ;-) Don't forget, you have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate for Creative Embellishments by hopping and commenting on all our blogs.
