January 2012 Blog Hop

By January 25, 2012Blog Hop

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


This month, in honor of the New Year, we are challenging you to pick your favorite project from 2011 and share it with all of us. To take it a step further, you are challenged to create a second card that is inspired by the favorite project you select. Your new version of an old favorite could carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets. We look forward to seeing your best creations from 2011, as well as your first projects from 2012!

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 11:30pm EST tonight (January 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!


Shelly S. created this beautiful card using the anniversary set Round & Round along.  I love the pretty color scheme ad well as the way she added a decorative edge to the bottom portion of her mat.  Makes me yearn for spring!

Kristen:) used Mehndi Medallion to create this simple single layer card.  I love the way she stair-stepped the medallions rather than stamping them in a perfect horizontal row.  It adds so much character and style to the project!

Ginger put together this show-stopper with Tag-its #10 and patterned paper from the Funky Town collection.  I just love the simplicity of it and the way she hung the cute little banner over the cupcake!

Congratulations to all the winners!  Please be sure to email Customer Service with your FREE stamp set selection along with your shipping information!  Thanks to everyone who played along!  There were so many beautiful uses of Papertrey products!  You should all be very proud of your contributions!

    I apologize, but I have no where to post my card, because, google, responsible for my blog, is not allowing me to post more pictures. I’m inquiring this process, I hope they release more space, because my readers are going to be without my information. I owe a lot to all who visit my blog, including compliance by the time they visit me, But this is out of my reach, I must wait. This is the reason and explanation that I have to, because this card has to go through e-mail or otherwise, I do not know what is …. Please feel will, if necessary, do not accept this temporary condition Thank you for your attention and affection. And once again forgive my terrible English. Make It Monday # 51 Participants
