Hampton Art and Core'dinations Blog Hop

Hampton Art Coredinations Blog Hop One

I am so excited to be a part of the Hampton Art and Core'dinations blog hop. They have a fantastic five days planned! Stampers LOVE good paper and Core’dinations has a wide array of size, texture, and colors in their product line! Take some time to visit each blog today through Friday and see the many projects and effects that you can create through stamping, embossing, and sanding on these great papers with Hampton Art stamps! Make sure you start out each day this week at the Core'dinations blog and end at the Hampton Art blog.

What blog hop would be complete without a giveaway!? Alright, you know how this goes… Like Hampton Art on Facebook (don’t forget KI Memories) , and leave a little comment on the designer’s blog posts each day (comment registration closes Sunday, February 17th)! We will randomly choose one winner of a super fun mystery prize that will be announced.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to finish cleaning and straightening up my craft room. I've only
been doing it for eleven days! :) Yep, it was a mess and I've gone through everything purging, cleaning
and reorganizing. AND famous last words...I'm not going to let it get messy ever again (wink, wink). :)
