Welcome to The Paper Variety's one year anniversary celebration! This week it's all about our "favorite things"! TPV is hosting 5 daily challenges of our favorite things and awarding 5 great prizes to 5 lucky random winners. We hope you'll play along with us each day!!
We begin today with a fun blog hop and our 1st challenge which is sponsored by My Favorite Things stamps. If you've reached me from Sue's blog, you're in the right place! If not, you'll want to go back to The Paper Variety so you can begin in the right spot. Be sure to visit all 12 designers on this hop to be inspired by all their lovely creations using MFT stamps and also many of us have blog candy for you, too! .
Our first of 5 challenges is to create a paper project including stamps - clear stamps, rubber stamps, image stamps, sentiment stamps. My Favorite Things stamps is awarding a random challenge winner with a $25 gift voucher to their store!
You'll have until Tuesday noon to enter your project here for a chance at the voucher prize.
My Favorite Things also generously provided the entire TPV DT with stamps to use on our projects. Thank you, MFT!
I used their beautiful beachy stamp set in the Inspired By series which you can see HERE.
I altered a journal for a friend who has been near and dear to me recently although we are separated by many miles. I heat enbossed the image and sentiment with my brand new heat gun, Versamark ink and opaque embossing powder. It was only the second time I ever heat embossed and I found it easy to do with striking results. If I can do it anyone can do it.
Before you go on to the next hop stop, I have some blog candy to giveaway!
I will pick a random commenter when the blog hop is over at midnight Sunday the 11th and will post the winner here on Monday September 12th. Just leave a comment on this post and become a follower if you aren't already to be eligible....how easy is that? And you could win this little prize package:
Included is a 6x6 Lost & Found paper pad by My Mind's Eye, a package of cute vintage-looking buttons and a $10 Michael's gift card. You needn't enter a project at TPV to win my blog candy. My giveaway is just for fun. Although I do hope you decide to join the challenge, you could win a $25 My Favorite Things stamps gift certificate!
Dont forget, there will be other challenges and prizes daily until Sunday at TPV inspiring you to use your favorite things! There's also a giveaway on the TPV facebook page so don't miss that! Join in the fun! :)
Now hop on over to Abby's blog to see her beautiful project created with MFT stamps!
