April 2011 Blog Hop

By April 25, 2011Blog Hop

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


This month's blog hop is dedicated to all the boys and men in our lives!  Now's your chance to create Father's Day projects, boy birthday cards and more to build up your stash!  Focus on masculine color schemes, fresh pattern combinations, understated embellishments and unique uses of images you may already have in your stash!

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 (April 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!


Lindsay Amrhein used the rectangle frame from Button Boutique stamped in a unique random fan pattern. She paired this up with Seeing Stars die-cut shapes stamped with Background Basics: Newsprint.  I love the subtle pops of color on a mostly white card.  One of my absolute favorite looks!

Leish cleverly used the new Boy Basics: Simple Circles set to represent the planets surrounding her Boy Basics: Out of This world rocket ship.  The night sky she created in the background using the splatters from Grunge Me provides the perfect backdrop to set everything off.  Simply amazing!

Jean Martin paired up several sets for this classic masculine project that could be sued for so many different recipients.  A Little Argyle, Just the Ticket and Postmarks to just name a few.  I also adore the color scheme.  It's masculine without being overly dark.  Just spectacular!

Congratulations to all the winners!  Be sure to email customer service with your shipping information and selected FREE stamp set within 30 days to claim your prize!  And thank you to EVERYONE for participating  All of these projects & submissions will surely be used as an amazing creative reference for months to come!
