Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop - Take Three

Whew!  The third (and last) of my entries in this month's Papertrey Ink blog hop!  For this one I was kind of going for a layered frame look.  I had planed to use several more frames, but when I got them all on the card front it looked too crowded.  Actually I was watching Project Runway at the same time and I kept thinking about how they always tell the designers to edit their looks, so I took a second look at my project and decided to scale it back a bit.  I'm pretty happy with the result.  I think it could be used for either a boy or a girl. 

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Hope you have fun looking at all the other great entries in the hop!

Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop - Take Two

Ok, here's my second entry in today's PTI Blog Hop - challenge black backgrounds.

For this one I wanted a really feminine look, so I created a sort of doily outline using a stamp from PTI's Mat Stack 5 collection and embossing it in white.  I'm not really loving the placement of the semi-circle, but it'll have to do. 

By the way, the inside of the card says, "I'm sorry I missed your birthday!"

Thanks for visiting!  One more entry in the hop on the way!

Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop - Take One

Hi there!  It's time for the January blog hop at Papertrey Ink.  This month's challenge is black backgrounds!  I'm super excited about this one, so I have actually made three projects!  I will post them all separately, so stay tuned. 

First, let me link you up to the hop on Nichole Heady's blog.  Here's the challenge:

My first project is very Dawn McVey inspired!  I just love her!  Here it is:
See what I mean?  Very Dawn McVey with all the layers, no?  I've been dying to use the patterned paper in the background and I think it is set off perfectly with the black background. 

Thanks for stopping by and come back again to see my other entries in the hop!
