Scrapbook Steals Birthday Week Blog Hop




 It's birthday week at Scrapbook Steals and to celebrate their fourth birthday they are doing a challenge blog hop. The best part is they are giving out scrappy prizes for participating in the challenges. For more information go to the ScrapbookSTEALS blog. You should be coming from the super talented Erin Colby's blog, if no simply click the link above to start at the beginning.

First off I just want to say Happy Birthday to ScrapbookSTEALS. The first steal I bought was to their retreat in 2011 and I've been stealing great deals on all of my favorite scrapbook brands since then.

I chose to participate in the Favorite Vendor challenge. I absolutely love My Mind's Eye. This is hands down the brand I own the most of. I have a weakness for the Sweetest Thing line that came out last year. I was itching to get my hands on some since I saw the CHA releases of this line. I had to add a little of the American Crafts jute twine too because it is one of my favorite things lately too.


This card is for the Washi  Fever Challenge. I needed to use four different washi tapes on one project. No problem! I used the floral washi tape to make a background on the base of my card and folded the other three washi tapes over a piece of twine and cut each of the bottoms with a different edge to mix it up. There you go!

Now head on over to the talented Kristy Lee's blog and see what she's got up her sleeve. I promise she won't disappoint!

Love that washi card. And I have to agree on that MME thing, it'll just be a matter of choosing which line I want to use for my challenge...
