The Very First Shoppe Hop!

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to The Scrapbook Shoppe's very first Blog Hop!
The girls are all excited to participate in this event so we aren't gonna waste any time .... let's start showing you all the wonderful creations they came up with!

Let me start off by giving Sandy all the credit for getting this up & running. Thanks Sandy for kicking us in the butt on this!

We were all given the same papers to use: bright, fun, happy ones from Reminicse (we LOVE that company!) and asked to create a layout, a card, and an altered project.

This is what I made for my entries . . .

a layout featuring everyone's first kind of bike!

a card with some of the leftovers... mine's kind of a gatefold with a top-opening flap

and 2 altered items from the leftover scraps and some matching stickers....

a cute Pencil Cup...make a personalized one for your child's teacher this year!

and a sweet door hanger with a special treat tucked inside . . .

Judy has not yet jumped into the blogging world, so you can stop by The Shoppe to check out her creations....they're here now!

If you would like to re-create any of the projects you see along the way (or have an idea for one of your own!), then pay us a visit and we'll hook ya up!

Your next stop will be over at Claire's blog to see what she has come up with for this challenge.

Leave a comment at each stop on the hop and you'll be entered for a give-away!
Thanks for visiting!

Buttons, Buttons....I Love Buttons!

Hey Guys!

I've been using buttons on just about everything I create lately, so I thought I would share my latest project.

Pretty simple....something anyone could put together.
It would make a nice project for the kids during the summer to keep them busy for an afternoon!

I started with an inexpensive wooden letter and painted it white. . . .

Then I got out my white buttons and a bottle of Sparkle Mod Podge and got to work.

and this is what is going to be hanging on my wall soon with the rest of my Letter *S* collection...

Have a wonderful weekend!
