Paper Crafts Magazine Presents: Card Creations Vol. 10 Blog Hop


Happy Friday!!

Today I have the privilege of participating in a celebratory blog hop in honor of Card Creations. This volume is volume number 10... Happy 10th Birthday CC!! You have been good to me the past few years! :) Thank you!

In keeping with the 10 theme of the party... I decided that today I would show 10 projects that were not accepted into the pages of a Paper Crafts magazine! The magazine is the ultimate goal but hey... a Paper Crafts blog hop is the next best thing, right? :)

All of my projects are holiday theme since those have been the recent calls. I know it is spring but I felt like it was still fitting to show holiday projects since Card Creations covers so many holidays and themes! Plus... if you have known me long enough... you have heard me say on more that one occasion that I don't like holding projects in folders on my computer for six months until I can post them... it bugs me! :) Win win!!

Soooo.... Lets get started....











Paper Crafts has generously offered to let us give away a copy of Card Creations Volume 10. Make sure to leave me a comment to be in the running! You have until Tuesday, May 15th at 6pm CST (on my blog) to comment to win. I will post the winner soon after!

Don't forget to hop along for more inspiration and chances to win!

Peace and Love!
