Celebrating a new release with a blog hop over at By LoRi Designs!

(Please scroll down for my Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps and Cupcake Craftroom DT posts!)


Hi everyone!  It's 1 July so that means a new uber cute Summer release over at By LoRi Designs!  We have a whole month of showcasing the newbies and today we are kicking it off with a blog hop!  And not only will you see a ton of inspiration during the blog hop, there are opportunities to win prizes!

Prizes: There will be two $5 Gift Certificates given away to two randomly drawn hoppers.  You must leave a comment at each blog for a chance to win!


Easy peasy, huh?!  So today we will be showing you three of this month's newbies and the DT have used the theme of Red, White & Blue (I bet you can guess why what with 4 July around the corner!!).  So, for my make, let me introduce you to Saylor...


She ws so fun to colour in!  Her hair and dress are so fabby!  Being British, we don't celebrate 4 July so I kept it as more of a congrats card instead.  Those are My Favorite Things star dies - aren't they fabby!  I had to cut my foam pads quite thin though so I could do that layering - bit fiddly but I think it was worth it!  Here is the rest of the new release...


Okay, so if you're on the hop, you should have come here from the super lovely Kadie and you now need to hop off to the ever wonderful Jen!  If want to start from the beginning go to the totally awesome Tracy!

The blog hop finishes on Sunday at 8pm Eastern and the winners will be announced on Monday!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, Making Memories paper pack
Stamps: By LoRi Designs Lollipop Saylor, CC Designs sentiment
Mediums: Copics
Accents: buttons, ribbon and floss
from stash
Tools: My Favorite Things stacking star dies (from Dies to Die For here), Fiskars border punch
