Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine Special Thanks! Blog Hop

Jen Carter PC LID Diamond Front 2

Welcome to the Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Special Thanks Blog Hop!  Today I, along with over 200 other crafters, are participating in a blog hop in honor of one of our favorite places of inspiration, Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking Magazine which recently announced they will be closing their doors.  I've subscribed to this magazine for years and have had some of my cards published in their magazine.  It is a loss to the crafting community to see them close.  In an effort to honor them and how they have contributed to our crafting hobby, we are sending them out with a bang!

If you are following along in the blog hop you should have come from Isha's blog!  If you'd like to see a list of all of the participants, click here to go to the beginning of the hop.

Our theme for this hop is thanks and friendship.  What a better way to symbolize friendship than with something sparkly!

I created this card with some sneak peek products that will be released on December 6th by Lil' Inker Designs!  My background was created using the new (available December 6th) Long & Skinny Rectangle dies.  I used two different sizes and pieced them together.  I love how there is LID's signature stitching all throughout the card!

The circle was die cut with Lil' Inker Designs Stitched Mats: Circles dies which feature LID's dual stitching!  They stitch on both the die cut piece & the negative piece.  You are also seeing another new die called Girl's Best Friend Diamond die (also available December 6th).  The sentiment & diamond "shine" comes from the coordinating stamp set called Girl's Best Friend (also available Dec 6th).
