Crazy Crafters Blog Hop: Special Guest!


So I must admit, that it's a little weird to be taking part of blog hop where... where I'M the special guest! But I was flattered when THE Kylie Bertucci asked me to hop with her Crazy Crafters, so how could I say no!?!

If you haven't seen one of Kylie's Special Guest blog hop before, the objective is for each participant to choose one of the special guests creations and case it (Copy And Selectively Edit) to make it their own. I can't wait to see how I have inspired them.

I wasn't quite sure what I was suppose to post today, so I decided to play along. My card today is a new take on my last year's Merry Mice card. (miss these mice... sniff sniff) This was one of my favourite cards and I really liked the layout.



So you might not recognize the stamp set, DSP or embellishment that I used today, and that would be because they are from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue! Yep! It's almost that time of year again!

Right now demonstrators are pre-ordering all new goodies and getting ready for the catalogue's Sept. 1st release. Well, mine arrived and I couldn't resist using it.

My card features a very, very small portion of the Iconic Christmas photopolymer stamp set. It contains 34 stamps, including a large tree made up of tiny Christmas images. There are also coordinating dies to go with the set, but I didn't use them today.

The DSP is actually NOT a new Christmas DSP.  It is from a NEW pack called: Painted Autumn DSP. But I liked the greens and it also reminded me of knitted socks or sweater, so I went with it.

My accessory today is the NEW Green Sprigs! How fun is that!?! I think they are actually for packaging and gift wrapping... but there was no way, that I wasn't going to use them on a card. Now I will admit, that it's pretty bulky on a card. But to help with that, I cut all the "needles" off the back of the embellishment, allowing it to lay flat on the one side.

Thanks for hopping in today, It has been a pleasure hopping with the Crafty Crafters Team! Make sure to use the links below to hop over to each participants post. You will find the list at the bottom of each post. Enjoy the Hop! Happy Creating!
