Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Blogging Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Blogging Friends Blog Hop".

Who are the "Blogging Friends"? We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators located all across the U.S. and Canada who have never met before. Well, actually, we still haven't met yet (in person)... But through our common bond of Stampin' Up! and a shared love of paper crafting, we have created a fun new blog hop. Please join us on the 1st of every month to see what wonderful things we have created.

Each month we'll have a different theme: this month it's Celebration - This is our 1st year blogiversary and we are SO very excited to have a special guest join our blog hop!

Happy September 1st friends! Not only is it the 1st blogiversary for the Blogging Friends Blog Hop, it is also my husband's and mine 11th Wedding anniversary. Where has the time gone? It certainly flies by when you are having fun, right? With this month's theme being celebration, I chose to celebrate love. 

My first card I'm calling: Lifetime Love

If you are a demonstrator, you may recognize the card layout from the Q3 2016 Stampin' Success Magazine on page 8. I chose to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) it to celebrate and give this card to my hubby. I incorporated the new Copper Foil sheets (available today in the 2016 Holiday Catalog) along with the Copper Washi Tape from the Affectionately Yours suite.

This next card I'm calling: Marriage Journey

Again you may recognize the card layout from the Q3 2016 Stampin' Success Magazine on page 10. I chose to CASE (Copy and Selectively Edit) almost everything about this card. I changed the stamp sets but overall kept it similar. It's hard to see in the photo but the Mint Macaron 'stem' and Black 'stemens' have Clear Wink of Stella® glitter.  

In case you've never 'done' a blog hop before, its really easy! At the bottom of this post, you'll see another image similar to the one above, and when you click on it, you'll be taken directly to the next blog in the hop. Keep clicking on that image at the bottom of each blog post, and you'll hop through all the participating blogs, back to where you started - and you'll see all the amazing projects and maybe inspire you too! If you'd prefer to hop about at your leisure, you can click on the individual links for each blog. Happy Hopping!

We'd love if you would leave us some comments (aka - Blog Love) to let us know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by today.
