Have you ever tried digital stamps? You SHOULD! There are lots of great designs out there with Michelle’s images being some of the best!

Every Tuesday there will be a new challenge introduced on Michelle Perkett Studios Challenge Blog! Make sure to check out the blog for more ideas on meeting this week’s challenge!

There will be a prize involved!

This week is challenge 48 —-> make a shaped card, other than rectangular or square AND use at least one of Michelle’s images.

If you don’t have any Michelle Perkett Studio images, you can purchase them at Michelle’s Etsy store. Check out the Michelle Perkett Studio Paper Craft Planet group and the CDAC group for great samples and inspiration!

To support this week’s challenge, I made a card base using a teacup template with the fold at the bottom. I put little accordion folded scraps on the right and left inside so that the tea bag wouldn’t fall out and to hold the front and back together. It still fits in an A2 sized envelope!

Hello blog hoppers!

Welcome to the Back to School Blog Hop! It officially starts at Michelle Perkett Studios Challenge Blog but if this is your first stop, just hop along the list of blogs until you end up back here!

What are you searching for you ask? There are 9 letters out there that will spell a secret word! There is 1 blog that has a letter that you will use twice. Don’t worry, she’ll let you know that you’ll need to do that when you get there!

We have a hint for you: it’s a School Subject!

As soon you collect the letters and unscramble them so that you know the word, go to one of the Communities: Paper Craft Planet, Crafter’s Digital Art Center, SNR-The Card Universe and send Michelle a personal message with the word in it. Don’t forget to include your email address in your email to Michelle! She needs to know how to contact you if you win!

If you’re not a member of one of those Communities, you can join any one of them for free. If you get a message saying you can’t email Michelle until you’re friends with her, just ask to be friends and she’ll respond as soon as she can. You’ll be able to then send her a message. You only need to send her a message from ONE of the Communities mentioned above.

The challenge starts today, August 24th and ends Monday, August 30th, 2010 at 5:00 PM MST.

Want to know the great news? There will be 2 (TWO) winners!! They will be announced on Tuesday, August 31st on the Challenge Blog!

Here is a card to give you a hint on what the letter is that I have for you:

One of the fun things about going to Canada is the opportunity to shop at some different scrapbook and stamp stores! There are different items that catch your eye and of course, some great finds.

I was recently introduced to My Stamp Box through the Preferred Partner program at P K Glitz. They are a clear stamp company with neat designs and great storage. Each set comes in a cd case with a sticker of the designs included – everything all in one, done!

A recent find in a Canadian store was this stamp mfg because they are Canadian! I haven’t seen them in any of the stores by me yet, so it was indeed a happy day when I saw the stamps. I had been wanting “A Tree for all Seasons” since I saw some samples on their blog. Stampin’ Up! had a similar set that I never got for one reason or another before it was retired. Win-win!

Supplies:
My Stamp Box stamps, A Tree for all Seasons

Yes, I owe you some Ippity projects don’t I? You can always visit my Ippity blog, but I don’t blame you if you want to keep your blog reading to a minimum. I do usually always post something on that blog every Monday and Friday with a repost here on Andrea’s Scraps.

Thanks for coming by to see my Ippity with some Unity mixed in!

This Robot stamp set is really growing on me! It is super cute and I happened to get some robot paper that inspired me to create my own background paper using the various robot stamps. Adding a little glitter to his big heart was a nice touch. 🙂
