Stampin' Addicts - Mega New Blog Hop

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts Mega New Blog Hop! If you are loving everything new in the new Catty you are not alone!! There is sooo much I want to get and I'm sure after seeing this blog hop my list will be even longer!

If you been following the hop in order then you have just come from Holly's Rubber Redneck and saw her wonderful projects using Artistic Etchings. If not you can always check out this thread to get a list of all the sites participating in our Mega New Blog Hop!

On my blog I will be showcasing projects using Word Play. It's a fun little set using all kinds of word phrases.

This first project uses the phrase wish big .... which is just perfect for a little birthday fun!



I made this little box out of a piece of 51/2x51/2 piece of card stock; so it's a small box. I made the mini card to go with it which measures 21/2x2. It's a pretty simple project but is super cute!!

This next project was a little more involved but again rather easy to put together .... who doesn't like easy?? I used the phrase Remember When for this one.





The concept of this project is to have a little scrap wallet for you to hold a few memories in ... it's perfect for you purse! The inside is made using several coin envelopes so that you can have several pages within the wallet. I added stamps from Sense of Time to add a bit more to the project.

My last project is this great card!! It uses the phrase Imagine.



You are probably wondering why I would pair this saying with the little girl from Kimono Kids. It is a bit different but I have a friend who is currently working through the process of adopting a little girl from China. So I thought this would a be a cute card to send her as she is imagining all the possibilities of becoming a Mom to this little girl.

The next stop on our hop is Adriana's Escape to Stamp where she is featuring the set Fabulous Phrases. Happy Stamping ... oh and don't forget to leave a comment before you go!!

Carmen - adorable projects! Love the kimono girl project; definitely the perfect sentiment for the occasion. I have a friend who just adopted a girl from China and the "imagining" is what got them through the lengthy process. TFS!
