January Papertrey Blog Hop!




Oh my, this is the first time in ages that I have been able to participate in one of PTI's blog hops. The challenge this month:


With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions. This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold. 2011 is the year where what's old is new again!
I have been working on these bookmarks for a bible study I am currently in (Love & Respect) and I realized that they qualified for the Blog Hop. While the stamp set and dies aren't exactly "OLD", I have had them for awhile and just now attempted to use them. Wow, do I love this set. Love Lives Here... what a wonderful set, love the images, the sentiments and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the dies that go with it. Those sweet little houses with their little heart centers. Oh my goodness.
I am making these bookmarks for the other ladies in my bible class. I am praying over each one for each lady and her marriage that is participating in my class. Hope I can do them justice.
I absolutely adored how this card turned out using my banner dies. I have had them for about 2 months now and this was my first attempt to break them out.

And finally on these little treat boxes I used the Favor It #2 die for the first time as well as using my ric rac die for the 2nd time. Whew, guess I have a lot of PTI goodies that I haven't had a chance to play with. I am getting closer though to having at least used everything ONCE.

Enjoy and let me know which project you like best.

will try and post a supply list later. If you have a question just ask and I will do my best to get it answered quickly.

I like all of your projects but the bookmark is such a clever use for the Love lives Here set. The images are easy to use but the sentiments are kind of tricky for cards. Thanks for great idea of using this set for bookmarks!

I love your bookmarks Angy! I sure would treasure on if I were in the group - with all the warm and loving thoughts and prayers that went with it! Love the layered stamping and distressing you've included on them - and using the Love Lives Here set on them is totally inspired!

Fabulous projects! I just received the dies for Love Lives Here and am so anxious to work with them. I split a set so I only got the images. I think I will need to CASE your bookmark--so lovely!
