Practical Scrappers and Scraptown Lady Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the PRACTICAL SCRAPPERS and SCRAPTOWN LADY Blog Hop! We thought it would be fun to combine forces and share projects with you that have our design teams’ takes on one of the hottest scrapbooking trends around: Project Life.

Whether you are a “Project Lifer,” are interested in Project Life, or just want to find out ways to use all those fantastic Project Life types of products and ideas on your own projects, we have a hop FULL of inspiration and creativity!

My project falls in the last category.  I have a bunch of these adorable Sn@p! cards  by Simple Stories. I love them and I have been using them regularly on my scrapbook pages for journaling and such. I like that they have a journaling side and a patterned side. When came time for me to make a frame for my husband's new office, I took them out to see what I could do with them.  Turns out I made a sweet frame in no time at all using the patterned sides. Easy peasy!

Each card is 3x4, so I used a picture of the same size, made a grid, embellished with word stickers, rub-ons, flair and a cute wooden butterfly. Fifteen minutes and I was done (and that's because I wanted the grid to be very straight, so I took my time!)

We’ve got a fabulous prize for the blog hop - a $25 gift certificate to Scraptown Lady’s shop, which is stocked with awesome scrapbooking supplies! What do you have to do to be entered in the drawing? It’s easy!

This is ADORABLE!!! Such a cute and simple idea - I am smacking my forehead and saying, "why didn't I think of that!" LOL!

What a great way to use up all the extra cards I have laying around. Such a cute project. Your comment about taking the time to make sure it was straight is too funny!
