Abby's 1st Blogoversary Blog Hop

Happy Saturday!  I pray that today is a wonderful day for you.  I am honored to be in Abby's 1st Blogoversary Blog Hop.  She's celebrating her first year Blogoversary.  Congrats Abby.  Love your work.
If you are coming from AMANDA, you're in the right place.  If not, please start back with ABBY which is the first stop and the last stop.  You need to make sure you end there and leave a second comment stating that you completed the hop.

For this hop, she has asked us to create a project using something from her favorite things.  Here's the list of her favorite things. 

*Basic Grey
*Peachy Keen
*My Creative Time
*Market Street
*Tim Holtz Distressing Ink
*Sakura Gelly Roll pen
*Make the Cut
* Treasure Box Designs

For my first project, I created a card.  It's based on the Peachy Keen Sketch for this week's challenge.  I used Sweet Treats to cut the cupcake and Mini-Monograms for the scalloped circle. Oh...I have an Action Wobble wobbling away on this card.  The heart was covered with Glossy Accents.  I just didn't have a chance to let it completely dry so it's cloudy right now.

Now the second project, was inspired by Brenda of Qbees Quest.  She has some great projects and one is this explosion purse.  Here is my take on her purse.  I will not tell you what I used as this is part of how you will be eligible to win my blog candy.  A little more on that later.  Here's the purse.  I couldn't add too many details because this is for someone who is probably looking at this right now saying, "Who me?"  I will add pictures and a few other things that she loves before giving it to her.

Now, since you have stayed with me this long, how about a little blog candy.  In order to win my candy, you need to try to tell me all the things from Abby's List of Favorite Things that I used in my two projects.  Just write it in your comment.  I won't post comments with the answers until after Monday when I will announce the winners of the two recent hops.  For your entry to count for today's hop, you must at least try to guess what I used.  The prize is a surprise goodie pack. 

Next you're headed to visit with JESSICA for awhile.  I'm sure you'll love her work.  Happy scrappin' and don't be a stranger!

Great card and explosion purse, I saw bling, distress ink, ribbon, paper, peachy keen stamps and more -lol.


Teri said...

Awesome! I especially liked your explosion purse- I know a couple of teenagers who would love one! What a great way to wrap a gift card. You sure seemed to get a lot of Abby's favorite things in your project! I hope I can figure them all out- I see bling, ribbon, Peachy Keen and My Creative Time stamps, the Cricut and Bo Bunny Press paper (maybe DCWV too but I am not sure). What a fun challenge

TuttleTime said...

An explosion purse...what a cool idea! I have never seen any of that before. Ok, you asked us to guess what faves of Abbey's that you used in your project. Hmm...Here are my guesses: Cricut, DCWV papers, Market Street stamp, bling, and ribbon. Very cute purse..wish I would get one of those! :) And, oh I am a new follower, too.

If I'm lucky to win, please send me a comment at my crafty blog:

Kathy's Kreative Spot said...

I would say you used the cricut and possible a Big Shot. I really love the explosion purse, I haven't seen one before.

AJoy said...

Love the purse. Details...please. :)

nginerd at gmail dot com

Maria said...

Very nice projects! TFS

AJoy said...

Okay, I forgot to post what items you used. So far, the only items that I can for sure identify are as follows:

DCWV Glitter Sweet Stack for the Strawberry print paper
BoBunny Summer Picnic stack for the green and white polka dot paper and ?maybe the flower print paper?
Peachy Keen face parts stamp set
either a cricut cut or MTC cupcake
maybe a gelly pen for the yellow cake bling or bling with Stickles
as far as I can tell, the stamps used were not from Market Street or My Creative Time...although at least one is similar to a stamp that they make i.e. make a wish.

Hope all this counts.

Love the explosion purse! Thanks for sharing!
