Home Sweet Home Blog Hop Challenge


I am so excited about today and tomorrow's Blog Hops!!

Welcome to day two of the hops :) If you arrived here from Jackie's blog, you are on the right track! If not, you can start the hop with Dawn and for all of the info about these hops you can check out the TSG Blog.

Ok, back to what I was saying. I LOOOVE the two sets we have to share with you today and tomorrow! Today's set is called Home Sweet Home and features two style of fireplaces (one stone and one modern) with a bunch of separate images that can be used to complete any home scene :)

I wanted to show you guys two cards that I made using this set.

The first one I wanted to show how it is possible to make a beautiful CAS card with detailed stamps.
And this card is all about layers and dimension! I did a lot of cutting on this one and it was well worth it. I love how much depth there is to it and how it is literally coming right out at ya ;)

Here is a close up view of the front:

Want a chance to win this set?? Make sure to stop by all of the Trendsetter's blogs that are participating in this blog hop and leave a comment. When you have commented on all of the projects, go back to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky. The winner will be announced live at the Release party chat on Saturday!

The next stop on the hop is Jessie!
