Giveaway Day 3 & CTMH New Product Blog Hop

Good Morning!  I'm posting today's entry early so I can link up to a Linky Party blog hop.  First up, the layout I created for the blog hop - who says pink is just for girls?
My poor son was forced to endure some odd hand-me-downs as a third child after two girls.  However, he absolutely loved that bright pink Trix yogurt when he was younger, so I chose to play it up with the new Sweetheart papers from Close To My Heart (available February1).  I used black for my page bases to tone down the "girly" factor.  I also added accents from the new Sweetheart Level 2 Assortment of epoxy stickers, which are all black with white polka dots.

Here's the entire list of products I used in this layout:
  • X7134B Sweetheart Paper Packet (NEW)
  • Z1386 Sweetheart Level 2 Assortment (NEW)
  • Z1393 Black Mini-Medley Accents Collection (NEW)
  • Z1370 Pink Assortment Buttons (NEW)
  • Z1261 Lots of Dots Irresistibles alphabet
  • E1009 Building Block Alphabet stamp set
  • D1348 Priceless Love stamp set
  • Z282 Black Hemp
  • Z1096 Neutral Assortment embroidery floss (white)
  • Z2193 Cotton Candy stamp pad
  • Z2102 Baby Pink Stamp Pad (sponged on journaling paper)
  • Z2105 Black stamp pad
  • date stamp (office supply), notebook edge punch (SU)
Now, for the giveaway and rules!  Today, I'm adding a little twist.  One commenter will win, PLUS if they tell me who referred them to my blog that person will also win!  Each person will win the Around the Block stamp set, and a paper pack or kit based on what they tell me in their comment.  Here's an image of the stamp set :
Now, here are the rules:
  • One entry per person, and please be sure I have a way to contact you.
  • You must be a follower.
  • In your comment, tell me who referred you (if applicable); if you are mainly a scrapbooker, cardmaker, or other paper crafter; and what themes or subjects you work with most.
  • Entries must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, February 2nd.


  1. Noone referred me;I found you through a MTC forum--lucky me:-) I am both a scrapbooker and cardmaker. If I'm scrapbooking I'm working on my kids' albums and if I am cardmaking I'm usually making a birthday card. Enjoy your day!

  2. What an adorable layout! I love that you captured this favorite from his babyhood.

  3. Love the layout, wonder how he will feel about it when he is older! LOL

  4. Hi Lori. I found you through you! I'm a follower and on several groups with you, including frugal. I generally enjoy card making and gift type making, home decor stuff. Have yet to do a layout. I tend to lean toward whimsical, victorian, country or blingy. I am sure blingy is a word, right? Love the layout with your son. As the six year old says it takes a real man to wear pink!

  5. Thank you for sharing all of these with us. They are so beautiful.

    You do a great job on your cards. Also everyone else has also.

  8. No on invited me to join your blog but it has what I need to learn about so here I am.

    Thank You

  9. Hmmm...I'm already a follower so I don't remember "how" I found you! LOL. I am mainly a scrapbooker of my kids but also within the last year have started making some cards for the holidays...birthdays, get well, thank you etc. I'm pretty new to stamping in general and am finding the new clear stamps are WONDERFUL...I hated the old wooden ones as I could ever get it straight. Thanks so much for sharing your cute layout. My hubby used to own a pink shirt and he said you have to be a "real" man to pull off pink! LOL.

  10. Actually your referred me! I saw you post on one of my Yahoo groups and came to see what you were doing! So put your name in the drawing ;0)
    I only do cards... no scrapbooking here... and I love to add Scripture, butterflies, birds, flowers, and trees to my cards! Thanks again!
