Scraptastic Designs Blog Hop!


Hello everyone and welcome to the Scraptastic Designs Blog Hop! If you came here from Cathryn then you're in the right place. If you just stopped by, please start at the begining at Cindy's Scraptastic Designs so you won't miss a thing.
We are showcasing some of Cindy's Digital stamps for you all to see and to get you pumped for the new Scraptastic Designs challenges starting on November 7th at 10 am. If you would like to check out her SUPER CUTE digi stamps please click on the SHOP page at Cindy's Scraptastic Designs.
For my project I chose to do a Box In A Bag. I found the tutorial here if you would like to check it out. I embossed the bag with Seeing Spots Cuttlebug folder and punched the bottom band with a Martha Stewart border punch. The tag is one of Cindy's digi's called Sweet Gingerbread Tags. I colored it with colored pencils and added a striped line to the frame to create the candy cane effect. I added Stickles to the berries, button, and white on the candy cane stripe. I then mounted it to a piece of red cardstock and trimmed around the edges. I tied a piece of twine to the tag and attatched it to the crinkle bow at the top.
I hope you all enjoyed seeing my project and will come check out the new challenges starting on Monday! Don't forget to leave a comment on all the designers blogs to be eligible to win the grand prize which is 3 of Cindy's Digis of your choice and a set of 12 Prisma Colored Pencils.
Your next stop is the talented Karen!
