My Top Ten of 2012 Plus a Giveaway and Blog Hop!


Welcome new visitors and long time friends!  I am so thrilled that you have popped in today!  So much so in fact that I am doing a fun little giveaway!  I love to look back and pick out my ten favorite projects from the year. Many of my crafty friends also do this and I thought it would be fun to compile one big list for you of where to find all of them so we got together and created a blog hop for you!  Several of us are giving away prizes too!  

I will share my ten favorite projects with you...after that check out the details on how to get entered for my prize!  Click on any of the pictures to see the original post!

First off here's the list of all those participating in this hop!  We've got a huge variety of styles in this hop, I just know you will be wowed!
****************




************************

This was hard to narrow down!  And there is no way I could order them :)

I made this card as a sample for The Scrapbooking Studio.  I adore the Pebbles "Seen and Noted" line and the wood pieces from Studio Calico!

 
An altered embroidery hoop....and it is all paper!  Love the Echo Park "Everyday Eclectic" line and all the fabulous trends it had!

 
A big trend of mine this year was outlining things with black or doing black matting.  I had so much fun doing the mitered edges on this!

 
Another fave of mine this year was SRM Stickers....love that they are clear, easy to use, and have so many options.  I used them for my sentiment.

I was honored to be on the Cycling Team for Little Yellow Bicycle's "Once Upon a Christmas" line.  I created a lot, but this was my personal favorite.  You can see the other creations here.

This might be my favorite layout ever, I adore Bella Blvd and all their gorgeous colors. 

Amy Tan's creations are another product favorite...that combined with SRM Stickers makes me adore this card!

I enjoyed all the geometric trends this year but found many of them challenging to work with in my whimsical style...triangles however are totally manageable!

I was all about combining patterned papers just as I did on this fun spider web.  This was a design team project for Quick Quotes

I used a fork to create the rays on this...that alone makes me smile :)

This past year I have had the honor of designing for Quick Quotes and Momenta as well as being published several times in CARDS magazine.  Today I would love to share some goodies with you from these companies!  

The prize package includes Design & Print lanterns, Quick Quotes Chipboard, Momenta Metals, Faber Castell Pastel Pencils, and the May issue of CARDS Magazine! Lots of fun goodies :)  To enter all you need to do is become a follower here and leave me a comment telling me which of my top ten projects was your favorite! The deadline to enter is 11:59 pm EST on December 31st and I am able to ship to Canada and the United States. I will announce a winner on the 1st!

Thanks again for visiting, now hop on over to see the talented Jamie!

Diane said...

I've been a follower for some time as you have given me some great inspiration! My favorite of your top 10 is your Halloween layout. I love how the background for the letters "BOO" follow the curve of the letters at the bottom, and how they hang down at varying lengths. I adore how you crossed out "Monster" and put "puppy". The colors are eye catching as well as eye pleasing. It is a perfect layout and should be published in a magazine as it is certainly worthy!!

~jan said...

I love all of these really! You can't pick a favorite but we're supposed to? lol I love the geometric look of the Dream Big layout and the Happy Birthday and Believe cards. But for my favorite I think I have to go with the Boo layout because I have a weakness for Halloween and spiders. :)
