DT Blog hop…

 

 

 

Morning crafters, blimey can you believe it’s Friday again, where do the weeks go? 

Nearly time for another Lili of the Valley product launch so the DT are holding a hop to hopefully give you a bit of inspiration for using the fab new papers and art pads which are available to buy on the website from midday on Monday

There are 6 gorgeous paper pads, 5 new art pads and also another set of their popular sentiments tags, I use mine all the time and this new set has tags for all your family members  …I know that they are going to be so useful!

*

Just ‘hop’ from one blog to another following the links and leave a comment on each post, hopefully we can give you lots of ideas along the way

As always we have some hidden prizes, we don’t know where they are so do be sure to visit and comment on every blog

We will let you know on Monday morning which were the ‘lucky’ blogs and the winners will be drawn at random from all the comments that were left on those blogs

We have a full set of the 6 new papers to give away, 2 lucky winners will each get 3 pads

...and there will be a 3rd prize of a set of the new family tag sentiment stamps


Here's a list of all the blogs taking part, and remember that you will need to visit them all and leave a comment on each one to have the best chance of winning;

I decided to make a Lili of the Valley banner for the shop using my favourites of the new papers – Shabby Shack

Sorry about the rubbish pictures, my light bulb died just at the wrong moment and I couldn’t find anywhere with any decent light

February Hop - Banner

 

 

I cut the letters on my Cricut and used a Magnolia Doohickey stitched border die at the top

The little flowers are cut with an EK Success retro flower punch

I’ll change the pictures if I can take some better ones this morning in the daylight. I just realised too that I forgot to take a picture of the back, the reverse has the blue spotty paper. I made both sides pretty and then it can hang in the window

Hope you like it! Hop along to Becky's blog from here    ....and if you get lost you can start again at the beginning and pick the links up from there

Before I go, don’t forget to stop by the Ideas to Inspire blog on Monday morning when you can find out who the lucky winners were of the prizes before the new products go on sale

 

Enjoy the hop everyone, good luck  …and have a fabulous weekend

PS. If you’re not a follower of my blog then please add me. I’ll have some candy soon if I can get a few more followers (I’m only a few thousand behind the rest of the team!!)
