Paper Crafts magazine Presents: 350 Cards & Gifts Blog Hop

Welcome to the 350 Cards and Gifts Blog Hop, celebrating the publication of Paper Crafts newest magazine.
I am so lucky to have 6 projects published in this magazine.  This call was a real experience for me...  it  was my first time creating other items, not just cards.  I have 2 card sets, a bookmark, a gift bag, some gift tags, and a gift card holder featured in the magazine.  This makes me so happy. :)
For this blog hop, we were asked to create a project using one of the fabulous patterns from the magazine.  All the templates and patterns can be found HERE at the Paper Crafts Website.  I have created a project using Alicia Thelin's Housewarming Home Container Pattern.  You can find her fab project on page 100 of the magazine.

I loved making this - I stamped the windows and doors from a house from Hero Arts Mi Casa set onto 7Gypsies patterned paper, then stuck them to the kraft house which I'd stamped lightly with Graph Background.  Simple and fun. :)  Thanks for the inspiration Alicia.
Now, make sure you visit all these amazing artists' blogs, all of whom have loads of projects in the magazine:
         Betsy Veldman
Lucy Abrams - YOU ARE HERE


Then, leave a comment at the Paper Crafts Connection blog to be in with the chance of winning a fun giveaway!
Finally, leave a comment by midnight on Sunday April 10th here on my blog as I am giving away a copy of 350 Cards and Gifts.  Yay!  (Giveaway closed and winner contacted.)
