Grand Opening Blog Hop!

I am so excited to be sharing the Grand Opening of the Frosted Designs store with you by way of this Blog Hop!  Hopefully, you have come to my blog from Anita Scroggins blog.  If not, stop on over at Frosted Designs blog where the fun begins!  The hop will run through October 13 and there are lots of fabulous prizes to be won!

Here are the rules for the hop.......

*Each designer has a word for you to collect as you hop along.

*Each designer will have a project that showcases favorite products from the store and maybe a prize or two along the way to be won!!

*Once you have collected all of the words, email the phrase to  One winner will be randomly picked to win a $20 Gift Certificate to the store (Gift Certificate does not include shipping).

I have used the Beautiful Life Kit from Echo Park for my project.  This kit is so versatile and comes with so many beautiful papers and two full sheets of stickers.  It along with the Um Wow hearts and the Dylusions Ink Spray are some of my top favorites from the store.

I used the insert of a sticker sheet and covered the writing with the flower paper of the Beautiful Life kit.  The ruler paper and the doilies are from the same kit along with the "sweet moments" tag.

Did you know that the Um Wow chipboard can be painted, sprayed or left natural?  Here I have used the Calypso Teal Dylusions Spray Ink mixed with white acrylic paint to paint my hearts a light blue. The color would be more intense if less paint is used.

There are many other great products in the Frosted Designs store.  Keep hopping to see the other designer's favorite products.  Don't forget to collect your words along the way!!

My word is........ 


Next you are headed to Brenda Becknell's blog for her project.  If you get lost along the way, here is a list of all the designer's blogs to visit.
