Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge and a Blog Hop!

Welcome back to another Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge and blog hop! The challenge this week is to decorate a notebook. For all of the challenge details be sure to check out the Paper Clip.

Since I'm still trying to ease my way back into my stamping routine, I made a pretty simple little notebook this week. One of my goals for 2010 is to be better at sending out birthday cards (on time). I figured if I made a little notebook and wrote birthdays and addresses in it and kept in at my stamp table maybe I'd be more on the ball when it comes to sending birthday cards.

For my notebook I used a little 3.5"x3.5" mini scrapbook. I stamped and colored Make a Wish Sophia and adhered it to the scrapbook. I added some ribbon to the spirals and viola!

If you are just joining in the hop be sure to go back and start from the begining (Christie's blog). If you have been hopping along, the next stop in the hop is the blog of Prettie Girl Wendy Bond.

Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge!

Welcome to another fabulous Jacksonbelle Tuesday challenge! For our final challenge of 2009 we decided to have a little fun with ribbon. Our challenge this week is called "Rolling in Ribbon". Think of a fun way to use ribbon ie ruffles, make a medallion by using a running stitch and gathering, use your scraps and layer them under your image...anything with ribbon! We would love for you to play along with us. If you do, be sure to leave us a link to your project on the challenge post on the Jacksonbelle blog.

Because I'm still a bit out of it after vacation and Christmas, I totally thought this challenge was to just use ribbon. I totally missed the part about a creative way to use ribbon. So here is my not-so-creative way of using ribbon:
I used a super cute Stampavie stamp, gorgeous May Arts ribbon and Basic Grey designer paper from the Jacksonbelle store.

This week is the last week for a couple of our departing design team members. Be sure to stop by and leave them some love. They are definitely going to be missed!

We would love for you to play along! If you do, be sure to leave a link to your project on the Little Paper Shop blog.

With vacation and Christmas and all of the chaos that went along with both of them, I didn't get a chance to play along with the color challenge this week :(
I do however have a fun Little Paper Shop card to share with you! This card uses the {I Heart} set that you have a chance of winning on the LPS blog if you play along with the challenge this week. I just love this heart topiary!
