NinaB Designs Blog Hop

Welcome to the first ever Nina B Designs Dream Team Blog Hop! We are so thrilled to have you join us on this very special day. My friends and I have some projects to show you that feature the Nina B Designs' Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (Home Sweet Home and Sewing Elements), The Craft's Meow Stamps, and Want2Scrap bling.

Here are my projects: 

  I used Spellbinders Sewing Elements, The Craft's Meow Sew Lovely stamp set and Want2Scrap Borders.  It is hard to believe it is only one stamp and that being the sentiment.  These dies are just amazing and I lightly sponged them with Memento Bamboo Leaves and Desert Sand.

I also made a quick circle card using Spellbinders Home Sweet Home, Want2Scrap Borders, and sentiment stickers from SRM Stickers.  


This was so much fun to put together and love this little house.  The patterned paper is Echo Park Splash.


Here is a closer look at the amazing dies Nina has designed that were used for both of these projects:

 Spellbinders Home Sweet Home 

Now we can't have a hop without giveaways, can we? I added a fun twist to the giveaways. There is a prize hidden in each of the designers' blogs, so, I encourage you to comment on each of them to be entered in all the drawings. Now the rules:
  • The prizes are hidden in the blogs and winners will be drawn randomly.
  • One comment per blog please.
  • The giveaways are open to everybody in the world!
  • The winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 21.
  • This is not required, but if you have projects using NinaB Designs stamps, dies and/or bling (see tabs above), please upload it to the NinaB Designs Flickr gallery, so we can all see your beautiful work. And who knows, I may have a Flickr fan giveaway someday :).
  • This is not required, but please consider liking the following Facebook pages: NinaB Designs, Spellbinders Paper Arts, The Craft's Meow and Want2Scrap. These companies provided some of the prizes today. Join me in thanking them and tell them NinaB Designs sent you. Thank you, friends. :)
Here are the prizes that are being given away - 11 prizes and 11 stops in the hop:


Thank you for joining in my excitement with this fabulous team!  Now, go be inspired as you visit these talented ladies:
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day! 
Blessings,
