Daily Grind Blog Hop Challenge

ETA: I added another TSG Tips & Tricks sheet at the bottom of this post!
Today is day one of the There She Goes blog hop challenges where you have a chance to win the stamp set being previewed today by the Trendsetters! All you have to do is go to each of the participating Trendsetters blogs and comment on their Daily Grind sneak peek post. After you have commented on everyone's blog, hop back over to the TSG Blog where you can enter your name into the Mister Linky located at the bottom of the post.

If you have made your way here from Holly's Blog, you are right on track! If not, you may want to head over to the TSG Blog to get all of the details about the Blog Hop Challenges and what you need to do to have a chance to win free stamps :)

Instead of making a card for today's Blog Hop Challenge, I chose to do something a little different. Starting with this release, I will be putting together different ideas on ways to use the brand new stamp sets. I'm sure that this idea will refine itself over the next few months so this month is going to be a test run so you guys can let me know what other kind of things you would like to see!

I'm sure we all have our favorite guilty pleasure fast food restaurant that we like to visit from time to time. They have even made it more convenient for us by grouping together our favorite foods and calling them 'combos'. Hmmm..... combo with curly fries.... Sorry. Moving on.

TSG will be offering combos that you will love to enjoy without having to deal with that unpleasant greasy feeling after ;) One of the new TSG Tips & Tricks sections will be called  #__ TSG Combo. The TSG Combos will feature how to combine different TSG Stamp sets in ways you might not have thought possible! The # will represent how many stamp sets are used in the featured combo with a list of the stamp set names on the right hand side.

For the very first TSG Tips & Tricks Combo I am featuring the brand new stamp set Daily Grind (which will be released on Sat. evening!) along with the much loved She's A Lady. This combo is very easy to create and will give you even more versatility in your stamping!

Daily Grind is a 6”X8” stamp set that includes a total of 35 of stamps, and will sell for $24.

The next stop on the hop is my girl Jessie and I know that she's got some great eye candy to share with you!

I like this idea Jessica! Very cool! I am impressed with how much a few strokes of a multiliner pen can add to creating a cohesive scene between two stamps sets. Looking forward to the release!
