It's Blog Hop time with The Alley Way Stamps! Today we're giving our final sneak peeks of the new sets being released tomorrow! And one person is going to win all 3 new sets! So if you want that person to be you, all you have to do is comment on all the hop posts and head over to the TAWS blog to find out how you can get additional entries.

And here's what I created for the hop...

I've used Framed for this card - I just love the sentiment!  The camera is coloured with Prismacolor Pencils on Peanut Cluster cardstock, using the same colours as yesterday's video.

Masked Sunshine - UnityTV Episode #82

Hello!   We have a theme this month for UnityTV, which is "Giving Thanks Unity Style".  Seeing as we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, I decided to put my own little spin on it, and make something reflecting what I'm thankful for.  And over here, it's that summer is just around the corner!  I've used this fabulous set called All Day Pass {to the beach}, and paired it with sunshine rays that I created by blending Distress Inks.  Of course, I used one of my go-to products, Mask It, to separate the rays.

Ready for the video?

I'm also entering this into the Young Crafters Unite Warm and Cozy Colours Challenge.

Core'dinations Butterflies - TAWS Video

Paper piecing with a twist in this TAWS video!  I've used some Core'dinations textured cardstock to stamp onto with Priceless Joy - I think it gives a really interesting look.  The sentiment is from Chatterbox.

I've used some Black Wire String from the Ribbon Carousel for the butterflies antennae.

I used the CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge for my layout.

Say It With A Kid's Card - AC090

We're Saying It With A Kid's Card today at the AnnaBelle Stamps Blog!

I masked off some different sized stars and coloured them with Distress Inks.  Then I used the balloon from Shape It Up to stamp in white over the stars.  It's the same technique I used for this card a few months ago.  The sentiment is from Fanciful Flowers.

I also added three Icicle Sprinkles underneath the sentiment.  Head to the AnnaBelle Stamps blog to see the gorgeous DT work!

Kid 'n Caboodle Paper Piecing Video - TAWS

Time for another TAWS video tutorial.  This time I thought I'd show you a couple of little tricks I use when I'm paper piecing, using one of this month's new sets Kid n' Caboodle (plus a sentiment from Jibber Jabber!).  PS - these sets are both available from The Stamp Spot

How sweet is this paper from My Mind's Eye?  It's called Bluebell and is available from the Ribbon Carousel.

I used the current challenge sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.
