Paper Crafts 225 Cards and Gifts Blog Hop!!

*this contest is now closed*
This week the newest special issue of Paper Crafts is hitting the shelves. Its called 225 Cards and Gifts and it looks to be an amazing issue!


To celebrate, the blogs Moxie Fab World and Paper Crafts Connection are hosting a blog hop today! The participants are the top 10 published designers in the issue. (my jaw is honestly on the floor looking at those names, seriously!) Everyone designed a special project for this hop only, based on the theme of the issue-gifts!
Maren Benedict
Beatriz Jennings
Kim Kesti
Carolyn King
Anabelle O'Malley
Melissa Phillips
Danni Reid
Roree Rumph
Sherry Wright


By visiting and answering a question at each of the blogs, including Moxie Fab and Paper Crafts Connection, you have 12 chances to win one of these three prizes from Provo Craft: Cricut Expression, YourStory Laminator/Binder, or a Yudu Screen-Printing Machine!!!
The deadline for commenting on all 12 blogs is Sunday, April 26 at midnight MST. The winners will be announced on both the Moxie Fab World and PC Connection blogs on Tuesday, April 28.

Here is a look at my project. I created a set of cards and decorated a tin to place them in.

The yellow ribbon ties all the way around the tin.
The label shape and ribbon slide are both from Spellbinders. The ribbon slide has been airbrushed with a Copic marker.
All the chipboard butterflies are from the Chatterbox Fabulous collection.
I love the long look of the cards, and the papers and accessories from Chatterbox sure say spring! (which we need up here in northern MN! :))
Here is the question you need to answer to be entered in the drawing:

This is such a beautiful set! And I love that you used Copic airbrushing. I have yet to try that out.

Hi Kimberley, I love your card set - it is beautiful. I love making handmade gifts for anyone who appreciates them, but the one I most love to make them for is my 18 year old daughter, because it's a way of expressing my love for her. Her love language is quality time, and she loves me to take the time to make something unique and special for her, and she tells me how loved she feels when I spend time making her something especially for her.

I love to make handmade gifts for my sisters because they know how much work goes into them, and because we have similar tastes, so I know that if I like the project, they will.

Sara said...

Beautiful work!

My favorite person to make gifts for is my Mother In Law- we definitely have that 1 of a kind relationship where I have no complaints and I love her dearly- she adores and shares the gifts I create for her with everyone and that really makes me feel good as an in-law :)

love with card making. I'm so excited for her!

What a great idea! Love the idea of using the tin for a card/gift idea! Hmm - I love making hand-crafted items for my Mom. She thinks everything is so clever and special and she loves looking at all the details. She crafts too so she appreciates the work that goes into things. I love giving hand-crafted items! Thanks for the opportunity for the drawing!
