New Release Inspiration: Among the Stars BLOG HOP!

Among the Stars 928x408 Blog Hop

Hi friends! Welcome back to day 2 of celebrating our newest exclusive collection, Among the Stars!

We have a super, ultra, mega FUN blog hop for you today loaded with inspiration from designers around the globe!  Be inspired!

Shari Carroll created this inspiration for our stop on the hop:

Dang!  Shari brought her A-Game to these designs! She watercolored a background using Tim Holtz Distress inks and put it behind the cut out mosaic star. Do you love this mosaic star as much as I do?  There is also a very popular fun stencil that we released a few years ago that served as the inspiration for this star.


Just wait until you see what Suzy Plantamura created in her blog post!  I have seriously never seen so much inspiration in one place in all of my life!  Let’s get this hop started:

    1. Oh, I told you how much I enjoyed your card, but didn’t answer your question.

      I’m looking forward to seeing my niece, nehpew-in-law and great-niece next month. They live in NY and since I can no longer travel to see them, I always look forward to the trips they make to AZ (even though they have to spread themselves mighty thin to see everyone here and when I was able to go there I didn’t have to share

  21. I love spending time with my hubby and our beautiful puppy. All year long I look forward to seeing our puppy play in the Alberta badlands. It’s a dogs paradise out there!
