~FTHS August Blog Hop & Sketch 160

Welcome to our August Blog Hop over at From The Heart Stamps! We have a “Use Your Stash” theme this month. Our designers are showcasing lots of gorgeous projects, so please be sure to check them all out!


If you have arrived from Kathy Stacy's blog, then you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss a thing.

Here is my project, using this super cute image from a set called Nerd Boy Balloon from the Smarty Pants collection.  From my stash I have used some of what I have left of the very first Echo Park paper pack I bought.  I don't even remember the name of the pack but it is perfect colors and patterns for a boy/masculine card and I really love it! I would say it is my go to choice for boy cards for sure!
 



I have also combined my hop card with this week's sketch with a tWiSt.  I did not use the tWiSt but I did use the fabulous sketch-just turned it to fit my image!

Now head over to Lyn's blog to see what she has created.  As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store. And one lucky commentator on the FTHS blog has the chance to win a $ 15 voucher-how fun!!

Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Sunday Aug 7th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday Aug 10th.


Hugs,

  14. I still have the first papers I bought: 2 large 12x12 collections by DCWV, 1 Christmas collecton and 1 general collection. This also has excellent papers for masculine cards, but I hardly use any background papers these days. Thanks for reminding me to have another look at them. They work so well on your card.
