Thriller Blog Hop.....

Let me just start by saying....I CANNOT BELIEVE IT'S ALREADY SEPTEMBER!!!!  August got away from me and I found myself scrambling (even more so than I already do....lol) last night to find a project for this month's Blog Hop featuring September's SOTM, Thriller!!! 

We have almost 70 Consultants participating this month which means if you "hop" all the way through, you will leave with LOTS of different ideas for this stamp set.  I bet you'll find some pictures of some NEW product as well! 

Let's get the technicals out of the way first....if you've come from Terrie's Blog, you're on the right track.  If you get lost along the way, you can always go to Helen's Blog and find a complete list of "hoppers".

Here's the SUPER CUTE stamp set....THRILLER!!!


As soon as I saw this set in the NEW Idea Book, I fell in LOVE!!!!  It's fun, it's funky and kinda speaks "girly" and "Ed Hardy" to me....after sitting at my scrap table for what seemed like an eternity, I finally decided to go with this.....



I used a paper packet that is my all-time FAVORITE and is no longer available (Notebook) due to our WONDERFUL $2, $4, $6 - 8 Sale but if you have anything that resembles it, you can use that to recreate (or if you're a paper-hoarder like me, you might have stacks and stacks in your closet....lol).  There's also You Rock paper packet in there (the subdued Smokey Plum polka dot B&T)....and a NEW one....Hooligans (it has the CUTEST "hahahahaha" paper in it!!!)

-----------------------------------------
And...I had to use some NEW stuff.....Pink Sparkles, Licorice Opaques, Mocha Opaques, 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 Clear Card, Hooligans Paper Packet....Archival Black Ink (I always get a more crisp image using this ink), Desert Sand Ink (LOVE this for distressing), Sandpaper (NEW colors - not updated on my website yet), 3-D Foam Tape (LOVE that I can cut what length I want and it's super sticky but easy to peel the backing off), Designer Ribbon Rounds - Black

-----------------------------------
Here's the inside....on clear cards, I'm very careful to hide all the inside front cover with coordinating B&T so you don't see any adhesive.  Also....I haven't quite decided what I want this card to be...birthday??? congratulations??? probably NOT a "happy halloween" though...


-----------------------------------
Don't forget to hop on over to Jen's Blog and see what creative masterpiece she has to share!

Remember...you can only get Thriller during the month of September....you can purchase it at retail price or you can earn it at a discount and maybe even FREE!!!  Ask your local Consultant about our fabulous SOTM program or e-mail me to find out more!

Thanks for stopping by....have FUN!!!
