Practical Scrappers Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy Friday and welcome to the Practical Scrappers Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop! You may have arrived here from Cathy Harper's blog, but if not, make sure you head over there to check out what she has to share with you today too.

The Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop is a group of scrappers who are using up their scrappy stash and sharing some inspiration along the way! Today, I'm sharing a scrapbook page that I created about my niece playing with her Rainbow Loom. I gave it to her for Christmas last year and then got her some more bands for Valentine's Day. She couldn't wait to start creating with the fun colors I gave her!

I dug into my stash and pulled out some papers, stickers, and die cuts from the American Crafts Shimelle Collection and some Studio Calico Chipboard Stars.

Of course, I couldn't resist throwing in some 17turtles Digital Cut Files too. I used the Everyday Paper Clips and Circles Within Circles to add a little texture and interest to the design.

I hand wrote my journaling on a piece of vellum and attached it to my layout by tucking it under the "Lovely" die cut.

And to help me bust even more of my stash, I'm having a 
MYSTERY PRIZE PACKAGE GIVEAWAY!

Unfortunately, my uncle passed away last week and I had to fly home for the funeral. I decided to stay a while and spend some time with my family and my Mom during this tough time. Because of the unexpectedness of my trip, I was unable to take a photo of my prize.

So, if you are OK with winning a MYSTERY PRIZE PACKAGE, then leave me comment below and let me know who is your favorite scrapbooking manufacturer. You have until Monday, February 2 at 12 midnight EST to leave your comment. I will then pick one lucky person to win a fabulous mystery surprise package. And I promise, you will not be disappointed!

As I mentioned, if you just started on my blog, make sure you head back to Cathy's blog and then on to Charity Hotrum's! There is tons of inspiration on each and every blog and I know there are quite a few giveaways going on as well. Happy Hopping!

  25. I already tried to comment TWICE on my ipad.....sigh.....but never to be defeated, & cos a Mystery package sounds WAAAAY fun....& cos I had a whole bunch of other stuff to say, like: that is so sad about your uncle...but rather nice that you got to spend time with your family....it's always 'swings and roundabouts', I guess....AND as others have said, the colours in your LO are AWESOME....love 'em AND my fave is Elle's Studio papers....love the modern, graphic twist they do so well. Let's see if THIS comment sticks. If not. Grrrrrr!!! I will go eat chocolate instead!!!
