scrapbookSTEALS Birthday Week Blog Hop

Hello, fellow scrapbookers and scrapbookSTEALS lovers! If you are here for the scrapbookSTEALS birthday blog hop, and I hope you are you should have just come from my talented friend Brenda Smith's blog. In case you didn't and need to start from the beginning just head over to scrapbookSTEALS and start from the beginning.

 I came across scrapbookSTEALS.com back in 2010 shortly after the birth of Shanley. Being the new Mommy I was I decided I needed to scrap EVERY moment of her life from the first poop to 50 photos of her sleeping all in the same position! Thanks to scrapbookSTEALS.com I was able to get a ton of great deals on embellishments, albums, adhesive, and patterned paper all to help me make those fancy baby books. Lucky for me and my scrappy stash they are still going strong and are celebrating their 4th birthday!!! They provide you with amazing deals on crafty products twice a day.

In order to celebrate their birthday they are having a blog hop tied in with their online crop challenges. Get ready to help celebrate the festivities! I decided to take on two of the challenges....those being the USE ONLY 4 THINGS & WASHI FEVER.


First up is the use 4 things and only 4 things! (To celebrate 4 years of course)


 1) buttons 2) patterned paper 3) frames (both wooden and chipboard) 4) Thickers. 



The next challenge I picked was to embrace the WASHI FEVER! Who doesn't love washi tape or have an ever growing collection? 

 

I only used washi tape on this layout actually, no patterned paper (besides my background paper). Add in some hand stitching, thickers, and a few little embellishments here and there and you have yourself a pretty cool and hip washi fever layout!  

From here you should head over to the ever so talented Erica Bass's blog and see what goodies she created! Make sure to stop back by scrapbookSTEALS and link up your entries with them for the online crop challenges. You will have until Wednesday @ midnight MST to get them in. Thanks once again for stopping by!
