The Paper Shelter 7th Birthday Blog Hop

Good Morning fellow crafter's and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop.  The Blog Hop is in honour of The Paper Shelter's 7th Birthday on the 8th December. It will be a two week Challenge and both Design Teams are taking part so we have lots of lovely creations for you to check out.

The Hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and this one is a

"Birthday/Celebrations" theme, which I know is extremely popular!!!!

If you have landed here from

Suzie’s blog

then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back to

The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog

to start again, as you'll not want to miss out on this one! Our Design Teams have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky person who leaves them a comment a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.

For my creation today I’m using a pre-coloured image and background from the gorgeous ‘Grace’ pack.


I’ve printed the background only image, background with Grace and Grace all on X-Press It Blending card. The Grace image was fussy cut using my Silhouette Cameo. I’ve made a frame around the smaller image pieces using a Marianne Design die and also used a larger Marianne Design die to expand the main card base. A sentiment, ribbon bow and flower complete me card.

Here’s a closer look at the centre image.


Stamps: Grace (The Paper Shelter), Bunch of Blossoms (SU)
Card: X-Press It Blending Card, Miscellaneous White card
Ink & Markers: Memento Tuxedo Black
Dies & Punches: Large Oval Punch  & Squares Collection Framelits (retired SU), LR0269 & LR0270 (Marianne Design)
Accessories: Seam Binding, Flower
