Today we are excited to present the BIG monthly Blog Hop that Papertrey Ink hosts for all of its talented customers to show off their skills! The Blog Hop is an ALL DAY EVENT! An Inlinkz list is posted below and you can add your link anytime up until 11:30pm ET. And don't worry if you didn't get a chance to make a project and play along, there is a contest for non-participants as well over in our forum in the designated thread. I look forward to seeing all of your creativity!
A day dedicated to seeking inspiration through projects utilizing Papertrey Ink products. This event allows all of our customers who enjoy sharing inspiration & artwork with their peers do so through their personal blogs.
Today, 10am ET until 11:30pm ET.
Over the last few years I have found myself using more and more white in my designs, so I found this particular inspiration photo captivating. With lots of rich, deep hues and a few pops of gold metallic sheens, this palette is sophisticated and regal. Maybe start with a Smokey Shadow background and build from there. Then pile on the pinks, purples and maybe a few splashes of red or orange. Banners could house your gold embossed sentiment. Maybe a scrap of gorgeous velvet ribbon. Or use the heirloom diamond rings as inspiration to add some bling to your project. Have fun experimenting outside of your comfort zone with this one!
-Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am ET and 11:30pm ET on February 25th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be "Papertrey February Blog Hop Challenge".

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:
Kristie H made this showstopper after taking a look at this month's inspiration photo. I'm in love with all of the variations of gray paired up with the bold pinks used in the florals. Keeping the sentiment nice and simple was also a great touch.
Joyce created this lovely floral card with lots of pretty pinks and purples. Lots of lacy details make this a pretty project with lots of feminine details. The dark background definitely makes everything pop.
Victoria H put together this baby card with a bold gold sentiment. The contrast of the gold and the dark background are fabulous together. The soft blue gingham adds a little bit of a baby touch.
Congratulations to all the winners! Please email customer service and provide them with your full name and the email address you want your gift certificate sent to. Thanks for joining us in this month's hop and sharing all of your beautiful creations with us!
