Stop # 19 of the 2010 Occasions Mini Blog Hop!!!

Happy New Year! and welcome to the 2010 Occasions Mini Blog Hop brought to you by Stampin' Addicts. This Blog Hop will feature sneak peaks of the stamp sets and accessories found in the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog, and will run from January 1st through January 3rd. There are a total of 23 stops on this Hop, they link to each other, so it doesn't matter where you start, you'll end up back where you began. If you have been following the Blog Hop in order you've just been to Sara's Blog "Lily's Ink Pad" and have viewed her fun creations using the stamp set Fox and Friends. I have chosen the Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper and the Sweet Pea Stitched Felt to use on my projects and I've got some Blog Candy for you, be sure and read the whole post! So lets get started.
First off is a little notebook I altered along with a mini clipboard. I can already tell I'm going to need more of this paper! Good thing it comes in a pack of 48 sheets! The stamp set I used to accent my clipboard was Great Friend. I also used the wide striped Old Olive ribbon for accents. The fringe on the mini clipboard is made by cutting down length ways on your ribbon. Then all you do is simply start pulling. Check back in a couple of days and I'll post a picture of how it's done.
Next I altered a tin, made a card, and altered another mini clipboard, this time using the stamp set For All You Do. I love this new DSP and the felt pieces! I think the felt pieces would make really cute little barrette accents too!
Close up of the tin. No stamping here! So if you like to just cut and paste, this project is for you!

Be sure and leave me a comment to register for some Blog Candy which is the Memo Pad and Mini Clipboard I altered in my first picture. Well that's it, thanks for stopping by and now on to your next stop. To view Heather's Blog click here. Heather is showcasing the new chipboard books. So be sure and hop on over and take a look.
