Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop!


Hi everyone! I am so excited to be part of the Mega Blog Hop! This is my first time participating in a hop and I have had a blast! As you all know, the Last Chance Lists came out last week and we have to say goodbye to several wonderful stamp sets. One of my favorites is one of those sets. I chose Just Jawing!

You may have just come from Carmen's post on the hop where she made some amazing projects with Just Basketball, Just Soccer and Just Baseball. I welcome you now to mine! (If you didn't come from Carmen's post, you can still see every blog that participated. They are all looped in a circle, so if mine is the first one you've seen, go on around until you come back!)

So, let's get started! For this project I got a spiral notebook that looked like the cover was our Crushed Curry color and decided decorate it so it looks young and fun! This is what I came up with:
Papers: Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Razzleberry Lemonade and Whisper White
Inks:  Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry inks and Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Large Heart Punch
Big Shot: Top Note Die

This second project was a lot of fun! I used a pasta sauce jar and turned it into a cute container for just about anything!

Papers: Noveau Chic Designer Series Paper, Real Red cardstock
Inks: Classic Black
Accessories: Black 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Brad

I looked at my previous two projects and noticed that I had not yet used the cherry stamp or the You Rock stamp!  So I used just those two and came up with this:

Paper: Real Red, Whisper White
Inks: Real Red
Accessories: Real Red 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Silver Brads

Feel free to make any comments on any of my projects, the feedback is most helpful! Thank you for coming to look at my projects, and now you should go check out 
Barbara's creations that she made with Bloomin' Beautiful!
