Paper Crafts Magazine Presents: The Handmade Cards Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Paper Crafts Magazine Handmade Cards Blog Hop! I love Paper Crafts' special issues and can't wait to get my hands on this one:


Love this cover (and I am not biased because my HELLO card is on it ;) ). On today's blog hop you will find inspiration on 8 designers' blogs. The first two will show you a card using 3 supplies, the next two 5 supplies, the next two 7 supplies and the last two 9 supplies. Fun, isn't it? I chose to use 9 supplies. Here comes my card:




I loved putting this card together. First I made a list of the supplies I'd like to use, then I looked through my stash for matching ones. After I had them on my desk, the card was made easily. Try it, it's a fun challenge!

As usual, the Paper Crafts Magazine blog hop means that you'll get the chance to win fun prizes! So first, leave me a comment on the post before Tuesday, September 24th to be able to win a copy of the new Handmade Cards issue. Then, hop on to the other designers' blogs for more chances. And finally, hop to the Paper Crafts Connection blog for the chance to win a wonderful giveaway!

Your next stop is Emily. Here is the full list of designers:
