April 2013 Blog Hop

By April 25, 2013Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the April 2013 Papertrey Blog Hop!  We are so thrilled to see you here!  First, the challenge…



PHOTO CREDITS  ::: cherry logo ::: butterfly ::: aa ::: fancy ::: take two ::: blessed ::: nichole's hello card ::: melissa's star card :::maile's striped card:::

It only takes a little *something* to take a project from ho-hum to amazing!  Even something as small as tilting your images or sentiments at an angle can have a huge impact.  This month we are challenging you to create a project that features something tilted.  Position a frame at an angle, tilt your text, add a background strip diagonally, create a border that has an incline, slant a sentiment block, the sky is truly the limit!  We look forward to seeing your projects later this month!

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This 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 (April 25th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a $25 PTI Gift Certificate to spend however they choose.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!



Joyce M. created this simple yet stylish card by pairing the banners from Sketched Shapes with a sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday.  I love how turning the design elements on an angle really added major design flair on her simply sweet birthday card!


Michelle W. pulled out Stylish Sentiments: Birthday as well, but she paired hers with this fun, diagonal grid pattern she created!  I love her color choices!  The pops of color on white are so eye-catching!

Papertrey Ink April BH 002

Rema T. really caught my eye with her use of the negative die cut from the Wonderful Words: Hello die!  I love her stamped diagonal stripes from Sketched Shapes and how she layered the arrow, circle and sentiment right over the top!

Congratulations to all the winners!  Please contact customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to.  Thank you to everyone who played along this month!  There were so many amazing creations shared!
