Practical Scrappers Blog Hop

Hi Scrapping friends!  Today I'm playing along with the Practical Scrappers Blog  Hop!

Welcome to the Practical Scrappers "Linking with Love" Blog Hop!  We believe it is important to always give credit when it is due to another crafter.  For this unique hop all of our design team members used the same inspiration piece to create their project.  Each of them will make an example of themselves as to how to properly "Link with Love" and credit the inspiration.  We'll be running the hop thru Noon EST on Sunday - so you have plenty of time to get thru it!

Liz Qualman created this beautiful layout and we have all used it for inspiration.  Each of us will tell what part we took our inspiration from.  The whole hop will culminate at Liz's blog where she'll provide us with a new sketch for inspiration.

And here's what I created!
I used a few different things for my inspiration.  First off the colors, I loved the color combination!  I also used the half circles in varying patterns.  I used mine to create the banner strips (also inspired by her banners).  And lastly I did some hand stitching on it.  As you can see I got a lot of inspiration from her fun layout and it was cool to see how that translated to a card!  And let's give a special shout-out to Momenta for all the beautiful patterned papers I used!

Many of the designers are providing prizes at their stop and Practical Scrappers is providing a prize for one person who becomes a follower at each stop (for all the details head over to Practical Scrappers). 

As a thank you to all of you for stopping by, I have a prize to give away to one person who is a follower here and at Practical Scrappers!  I've got a selection of great Momenta stickers that you will love!  All you have to do is become a follower and leave me a comment telling me your current favorite supply or tool for papercrafting.  Thanks for stopping by!  Head on over to Kerri's blog now!

Great way to interpret the layout, Christine. I love the little handstitched bits.
I already follow you and PS, of course! My fave tool presently is my edge distresser - most layouts have some distressing on somewhere.
