PTI Blog Hop - June!!!

Well today is the day, the day for all you blog hopping addicts to get your fill of this months Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
Every Month on the 25th anyone who wants to participate in the hop may do so by checking out the currents months challenge and implementing it on your blog according to the rules. Be sure to visit the forum as well for fun chat, contests and also ask any questions you may have!




This month's project was to utilize acetate in any way, shape or form. I have to admit I was a bit blank at first but decided to just do something simple.
I started by creating my base page using great papers from My Minds Eye
After I was done the page base I picked out my pictures and layered acetate over top. Then I added some simple white Staz On to my acetate and assembled everything.




On the main image I did a polka dot trim along the right side, which I thought complimented the large dots in the My Minds Eye paper. The buttons also went with the whole dotted theme!
I stamped the sentiment in white Staz On
"Every good & perfect gift
comes from above"
onto the picture because this is absolutely true!


On each little wallet size photo I layered the acetate as I did with the large picture. Then I took itty bitty sentiments from Mixed Messages and stamped them in different directions on my pictures. Then I added some great PTI twill to each picture.


The flower cluster has absolutely nothing to do with the blog hop topic but it was super fun and easy to do. A while back I picked up some sticky stuff in shapes from THIS site that had a special.

So all I did was watercolor my SU flowers, add a sticky circle to the centers, added the button (without having to add more glue) and then I sprinkled with Martha Stewart glitter. After all the excess glitter is off the flowers I added then to my page with Tombow multi and that's it!

Thanks everyone for coming to check out my project and stay tuned this week as I already have a few more posts ready for ya! I am back baby and I have a ton of cards to share with you as I prepare a big order I already have 45 cards done and over 100 still to go!

  13. This is beyond gorgeous...I LOVE it. The colors are so soft and pretty and I love the focal point of the picture under the acetate.

    I unfortunately chose to sit out tonight-I couldnt' get to the store to get acetate for one, and for two, I have ATC's to swap out! LOL. So glad I could take a peek, tho...it's amazing!

    Take care,
    Jessica :)
