Scraptastical Kreations Sale - Bration Blog Hop & Mini Crop

Hi everyone and Happy Friday! I'm so glad the weekend is here! My husband and I already pre-ordered our tickets to see Harry Potter tomorrow, I'm so excited :) Well, today is a HUGE day here on my blog so I'm going to keep my chit chat short and get right to it.

As those of you who follow my blog know, lately, I have "discovered" paper piecing and have fallen in love with it. I began posting projects on my blog using various paper piecing patterns (cut out with my new and wonderful Silhouette) and one day I got a message from Kristy over at Scraptastical Kreations. Kristy had seen some of my work with paper piecing and asked me to be on her Design Team! I was SO honored and SO floored to be asked and of course I said yes right away. Today and for the rest of the weekend, the DT is celebrating the grand opening of the store.

Today we are kicking off our GRAND OPENING at Scraptastical Kreations and thought it would be fun to host a hop featuring our new Design Team! Each Design Team member has chosen a different file to showcase today and we know you are going to love what they have brought to the table! Today, I had the privilege of showcasing the adorable Berry Sweet Kids Pattern Set How cute is this set?!?! I decided to make a one page scrapbook layout. I'm so sorry for the picture overload, I really wanted to get some good shots of these adorable little bears :)

I downloaded the SVG file from the website, uploaded it into my Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) 3.0 program, and then cut everything out using my Silhouette. Before piecing all the pieces together, I chalked around all the edges, then ran the little bear's dress through my Cuttlebug using my Swiss Dots embossing folder. I then put everything together and then used my white gel pen for some doodling. I then created my scrapbook page using SU cardstock. My DP is from K&Co. What do you think?

As part of the weekend grand opening celebration, lots of new files have been added to the website! And what a better way to celebrate than with a fantastic sale?? Starting today, if you spend $25 or more, you will get 60% off your total purchase! That is what I call a SALE - BRATION! Just type in the code BLOGHOP at checkout and you will get your discount.

We are also hosting a mini crop on the fan page over on Facebook ( Click Here) with lots of fun, games, prizes, and challenges! Who doesn't love an online crop?!?! You don't have to leave your house and drag all your supplies somewhere, you can sit right there in your crafty space and create! So head on over to the SK fan page and join in on the fun!! You don't want to miss it! Our challenge today over on the Fan Page was to create a summer project. I created a two page layout using the absolutely adorable
Just Beachy pattern set.

I cut all the images and the title out using my Silhouette, put everything together, and did my doodling. The waves were created using my Cricut and my Life's a Beach cartridge. I then created my layout using SU cardstock. My DP is from DCWV. I actually added pictures to this one. These pictures were taking last summer during our vacation to Charleston, South Carolina. We went again this summer, but I'm obviously way behind in my scrapbooking :) These pictures were taken on my beloved Folly Beach. What do you think?
