March 2011 Blog Hop

By March 25, 2011Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the March Papertrey Blog Hop!  We are so thrilled to see you here!  First, the challenge…

The-Challenge

For the March Blog Hop we are challenging you to use embroidery floss in a fun and inventive way on your project.  This could include stitching, wrapping it around and tying it like ribbon, braiding, accenting tags, embroidered patterns or anything else you can dream up!  We look forward to seeing your creations!

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This new type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:00pm EST tonight (March 25th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a FREE Papertrey Ink stamp set of their choice.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:

I sincerely apologize for the error that occurred with the early closing of the link list last night. The closing time information programed into the list somehow became misrepresented and I was not near a computer yesterday until very late last night due to some other commitments, so I was not aware of the issue until it was too late. I have reopened the link list today so anyone that wishes to can add their link to the archive.  Once again, I apologize for any disappointment anyone may have felt regarding our error.

Crazycurl-final
Crazycurl created a crocheted flower with embroidery floss to accent her heat embossed vine images.  I think this is a fantastic use of a border stamp and can really bring new life to many of the ones included in the Papertrey collection!

Amanda-Profumo-final
Amanda Profumo used floss to stitch a beautiful border that repeats the bright pink used on her butterfly.  Not only does this create balance, but it also adds texture that makes the project unique.

Cristina-final
Cristina made a frame with embroidery floss using brads at each of the four corners.  This is a fantastic way to add focus to a focal point rather than just adding a standard paper mat or stamped frame!
