Hello!  We have another special Blog Hop this month because Your Next Stamp is celebrating its 3rd Birthday!!!  We are so excited about this milestone, and we have some fun and ADORABLE projects to share with you today!

We are making this hop even more fun, because we have put together a scavenger hunt!  Each DT member and guest has a bold, colored letter on her blog.  Collect all the letters and unscramble them to find the special saying.  Once you do that, e-mail Karen at karen@yournextstamp.com and you will qualify for the $25 YNS shopping spree GRAND PRIZE!!!  

We also have 3 special new release prize packs hidden along the hop.  Just leave comments along the way to win!  

You have until August 9th at 12 midnight EST to play along and the winners will be announced August 10th on the YNS Blog!

Onto my projects:


First up I have a fun little back to school tote using this super cute Franfou image called Fab-u-licious!  I just LOVE IT!!!  This is so fun for school projects, or to congratulate someone on their new home!  I used the My Time Made Easy Tricky Treat Tote template and the dp is October Afternoon Schoolhouse.


In honor of this celebration, I also made a fun little birthdy card using the new Birthday Owl image!  I just ADORE this sentiment, and that owl is so stinkin' cute!  The dp is Doodlebug Design Inc. Cake & Ice Cream and the layout is the August Jen's Sketch For You To Try.  I also used one of the Your Next Stamp Ballon Trio Dies.  


As always we have some awesome specials at the YNS Store!  Everyone will receive a FREE scratch card with every purchase all month long or while supplies last!  Every card is a WINNER!



Also receive 25% off your order August 6th-August 10th!   Online code is HAPPY

Karen has just improved the YNS Store website, so make sure you check it out!  We now have larger thumbnails so you can see these adorable images even better!

Now it’s time to hop on over to Jen del Muro's fabulous blog, but before you go, don’t forget about the scavenger hunt!  My number is 3 Happy hopping!

SunnyB said...

Kerri, I have tried two separate times to leave a comment here on your blog for the YNS blog hop and neither time has the comment posted. I tried on Aug 7 between 7 and 8 am and then again on Aug 8 between 4 and 5 pm. Both times the comment appears when I type it and click on "publish your comment", but it is not there when I look back in the comments on your blog.

I hope your blog is not one of the three with the new release prize packs since I don't seem to be able to get a comment to post to be eligible for the prize.
