Country Cottage Creations in Paradise, PA, was my Home Store during the Buggies & Buds Shop Hop. This year, they gave out an adorable 8x8 scrapbook kit with a number of mice images. I colored one of the images with Copics and added some color-coordinating card stock and turned the scrapbook kit into a card. I think I have enough DP left over to make another card with one of the other mice images provided.
I made this card out of the 8x8 scrapbook page kit I received from L&L Rubber Stamps and Scrapbooking in Ephrata, PA, during the Buggies & Buds Shop Hop 2011. I added the bling, black card base and ribbon. Everything else was in the kit - including the stamped image, which I colored with Copics.
I have a few more kits I need to turn into cards. Hopefully, I'll get to those sooner than later!
I had a terrific time at this year's Buggies & Buds Shop Hop. Last year we did ALL of the shops, this year, we decided to only do 6 - and add more sightseeing into the trip.
This year's take-n-makes and/or make-n-takes were mostly 8x8 scrapbook layouts as each hop registrant received an 8x8 album and each shop was supposed to provide a page kit. However, some shops offered a choice of an album page or a card kit. As a cardmaker, I chose the card when possible (and will make cards out of the album page kits). This is the card from "From the Heart" in Paradise, PA. Isn't it cute? Now just need to find a gift card to slide into the little envelope and a reason to send it to someone!
