Scrappy Moms Stamps 1st Birthday Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Scrappy Moms Stamps 1st Birthday Blog Hop! Thank you so much for joining us! The SMS Design Team has new project that they have made using one of their favorite Scrappy Moms Stamps sets - AND we are joined by our June Guest Designer - Sandra from 365 Days of Cricut!! :)

Here is my project....


Isn't the little whale sooooo ADORABLE?! He is cut from the Pack Your Bags Cricut cartridge - I just love him! I cut a palm tree from Create A Critter and cut it down so it looks like it's peeking in from off the card - at least I hope that's what it looks like! LOL I free-handed the ocean floor and shore and embossed it with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. I used Japanese Scales embossing folder from the Asian bundle on the water. It doesn't show well in the photo but I think it's adorable! I was the 1st time I used this folder but I will DEFININTELY use it again soon. Of course, I had to add a little Stickles for sparkle on the water spout. The sentiment is from the SMS Sun Kissed stamp set - I really LOVE this set!! :)


The grand prize for our Birthday Spectacular will be drawn from this hop so be sure to leave a comment at all the stops along the way to get as many chances to win as possible! We will draw the prize on Monday so you have plenty of time to get your comments in. :)

Here is the full blog hop line-up...

I hope you enjoyed my project! Your next stop on the hop is Laura.


Have a FABULOUS weekend!!

Yes! I did enjoy your adorable project. I just got a Cuttlebug and loved that you used 2 folders and gave the names of them so I can get ideas. Pack Your Bags & Life's A Party are the 2 carts I want next (whenever that will be LOL). Loved seeing you use one of them in this project. Hugs! :) Janis northrose@slowar.com http://pausedreamenjoy.blogspot.com/
