The Craft's Meow August Release Blog Hop

The Craft's Meow

Welcome back for our traditional Design Team Blog Hop showcasing all of our new August releases at The Craft's Meow!  You should have arrived here from Karen's wonderful blog.  If you just happened across me, and want to start from the beginning, please go to The Craft's Meow blog, where there will be a list of the blogs participating, and from there you should be directed from one blog to the next.   

I made 2 cards for you today.  My first uses our new sets Potted Garden, along with a sentiment from Choose Hope.

TCM Aug 21 Blog Hop

I stamped the pot of tulips, along with the little "friend" tag, then colored them with markers, cut out the elements and put them on a Spellbinder's Floral Ovals die, and added some design papers.   Here are the sets I used:






For my 2nd card, I paper pieced the rose bouquet from Jar of Sunshine, glued it to a Spellbinder's label, and added my sentiment from Choose Hope.

All of the sets are now available to order at The Craft's Meow Store!  Don't forget that our special stamp set this month is Dream Catcher - you can have it for free when you spend $60.00 in our store, or you can buy it separately, if you wish.

AND 1 lucky person will win all SIX sets by leaving a comment on each of our blogs along the hop (you don't need to comment at each blog, but doing so will increase your chances)!  You'll have until 8:00 PM PDT on Friday, August 23 to leave comments, and Lisa will draw a random name from one of our blogs as her winner, and announce that name on the blog August 24!  Now hop along to Nina's blog.  Thanks for visiting!

  31. I love all your cards. And aren't all these sets "the bees knees". That set with the hopeful expressions is to die for, the potted flowers and garden scenery sets are fabulous, and the dream catcher is awesome as well. It would be so hard to choose a favorite.

    Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing your talent!
