May VIP Tour-Fun in the Sun!!

Hey everyone, and welcome to May's VIP Product Tour!! This month's collection is SUPER fun, and I am IN LOVE with the VIP sentiments set!!!

If you aren't familiar with the VIP Package it is a LIMITED QUANTITY product (NOT a one-day product - it will be available until it sells out), that allows you the opportunity to purchase new, unreleased sets TWO weeks early. This month's package is: 

Pure Innocence Fun in the Sun VIP Collection $34.90
Pure Innocence Hula Girl stamp set
Pure Innocence Sprinkler Girl stamp set
Fun in the Sun Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set - will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE)
Hibiscus Die-namics
Notched Border Die-namics

For my card, I decided to use Sprinkler Girl paired with my Simple Stories Summer Fresh pad. I colored my girl with Copics, and paper pieced her swim suit. She was cut out with the Circle Stax Die-namics, and then layered with the Open Scalloped Doily Die-namics in Night of Navy(SU). My other card stock colors are Wild Cherry and Gumdrop Green. I used Michael's brads, and Sweet Tooth ribbon. My sun was cut out with the Sun Die-namics and some So Saffron(SU) card stock. For my green paper layer under the circle, and my sentiment, I used the First Place Award Die-namics. I roughly followed a previous Mojo Monday sketch. :)

For the inside, I used the same supplies, and another sentiment from the VIP sentiment set. I also used the new Notched Border Die-namics, which is part of the VIP kit!!

Here are the Die-namics I have used: 

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out Kim's Blog for a full list of designers participating in today's post!!

ConGRADulations Blog Hop Challenge

Hey everyone,and welcome to the first of this month's There She Goes Blog Hop Challenges!! Today's set is called conGRADulations, and is SO SUPER CUTE!! 

Let's get to it!!

Melyssa is at it again, and just in time for all your graduation needs! This stamp set is PERFECT for ANY grad, young or old!! There is NO better way than to honor your favorite grad with a card, or scrapbook page, about their achievements!

For my card tonight, I paired the new conGRADulations set with the Echo Park This&That Graceful pad. I used Cotton Candy, Sweet Tooth, Hot Fudge(all MFT), and Aqua Mist cardstock. I used Walnut Vintage Seam Binding, Creative Express Spiral Clips, and Michael's brads. My numbers are American Crafts Thickers. 

Would you like to win the new ConGRADulations stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post.

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, May 26th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.

A Sketch and a Little Sneaky Peek!!

This week is release week for There She Goes, and we officially start our sneak peeks in the morning at 8am....I couldn't resist sneaking in an extra peek, just for you all!!

This new set, ConGRADulations will be previewed starting in the morning at 8amEST, so be sure to stop by for our monthly Blog Hop Challenges for your chance to win!!

I used this week's There She Goes challenge(TSG157), which is a sketch challenge! We have combined it with a "birthday" card challenge, as well. We are celebrating the bosses birthday all week, so we thought it was only fitting to make the challenge a double challenge!! You can enter the sketch, or the birthday card challenge, or both!! If you do both, you will get two chances at winning our weekly prize!!

Well, I better get going, lots to do!! Hope you enjoyed the peek, and see you in the morning for day one of our 4 day extravaganza!!!
