Shaping up! blog hop and giveaway.



Hi peeps!

You've probably hopped over by way of Anita's fabulous blog.



In case you're wondering how this came to be.... the top 20 Gallery Idol contestants became friendly behind the scenes.  We've had so much fun getting to know each other while competing, and we thought we'd do something fun to thank Paper Crafts and all of you for your encouragement and support.  As soon as my prize box makes it allllllllll the way to me in Canada (!) I will be giving away some goodies from my box - in fact, each of the girls are!  Keep reading all the way to the end for the details of my giveaway :)

Paper Crafts has a shaped card contest going on right now, and we thought we'd join in the fun!


Awww, a little Russian doll-shaped card!  (if you're asking: "how is this a summer-themed-shaped-card, Els?"  I would just like to point out that a. matryoshkas are year-round, people, and b. obviously they wear the scarves on their heads to protect from the sun... but mostly c.  I just wanted to make them so badly!)

I hand-drew this template, cut it out, and paper-pieced it using some MME papers.  If you've read the sentiment, and keenly noticed the stitching along the sides of the doll, you might not be surprised by this next turn of events...


Hee hee!  A smaller nesting doll inside :)  Because it's what's inside that counts!


The smaller nesting doll is a proper "shaped card."  I created a full doll for the card-front, and it sits on a white doll-shaped card-base.  The bow images are from PTI's "bells and boughs" set, and the beautiful flowers on the sentiment banner are from their "simply jane" set.













I hope you like my little ladies - next, hop on over to Erin Lee's blog :)

(if you get lost along the way, you can find a full list of participants on our facebook event-page.)

But before you go:  the very important (not-so) fine print:

To be eligible for my giveaway, leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite part of summer has been so far.  For a second chance at winning, become a follower of my blog and let me know you've done that (if you already follow this blog, let me know in a separate comment.)  The giveaway ends July 29th and a winner will be announced on the blog shortly thereafter.  If I get my box in the next few days, I'll give an update on what the prize will be but I promise it will be good :)

Thanks for popping by!

  93. Oh, sorry, I'm a crafter and don't always read directions! So, my favorite part of summer so far has been going to Chicago (we live in the suburbs) to tour a new neighborhood/area, head to Lake Michigan in the evening, and then wrap it up with dinner at a nice restaurant. I go with another Mom and her two young kids and we have a blast! Every Tuesday. The kids learn a lot about other cultures, try new foods, and get excited about going somewhere new. We've done this for 3 summers now.

    ReplyDelete
  94. What a brilliant shaped card to suit the sentiment. I think you chose lovely summery papers and grandmas are year round!
