WHIMSY PRINTS BLOG HOP and SWEET STUFF!!!

Hi, everyone, and welcome to the Whimsy Prints BLOG HOP! In October, Whimsy Stamps announced the release of a BRAND NEW Whimsy Stamps product line - the Whimsy Prints Collection. The Whimsy Prints Collection consists of beautiful sets of hand-colored images which have been digitally reproduced and die-cut into various shapes. Whimsy Prints are printed on 100lb premium coated paper and professionally die-cut leaving smooth edges. Each pack contains 12 die-cut prints (3 sets of 4 images). The Crissy Armstrong prints are lovingly hand-colored by Crissy Armstrong herself:


The Elisabeth Bell prints have been hand-colored by our talented Senior Designer Simonne Clay:


All of the images in the Whimsy Prints Collection are very straightforward and easy to use. They can be attached directly to your project with glue or double-sided tape. Use them as is or cut to fit the needs of your project. One of the benefits of using Whimsy Prints is to cut back on the amount of time needed to hand color images. To summarize, this is a great way to make quick projects when time is of the essence! These are also wonderful for beginner crafters and kid projects. If you joined us for our last 2 releases, you may have seen some of the beautiful projects our DT and Special Guests have created using these prints.

Today we are showcasing these gorgeous Whimsy Prints with a special BLOG HOP! In addition to our regular Special Guests, we are delighted to welcome both Crissy Armstrong and Elisabeth Bell who are joining us for this hop! The hop starts today (Friday November 30th at 12.00PM EST) and ends on Monday December 3rd at 12.00PM EST. For this hop we have 4 different candy stops where you can enter to win a set of Whimsy Prints. The location of these candy stops is a secret, so if you haven't found them, please go back to the beginning and start hopping! If you would like to hop along with us today and haven’t arrived from the Denise's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the beginning of the hop at Bev's blog.

But before you go........
 
 
 
SOME SWEET STUFF!!!!
 
As I told you, I have been organizing my MS punches....organizing is such a neverending task for me...sigh...But I did find a Martha Stewart Punch Around The Page Set which was a duplicate in my collection and I would like to offer it to one of my FOLLOWERS!!! This is the first of several that I will be posting as SWEET STUFF over the next few days. This one is called Deco Fan....
 
 
I just want you to know that if I have to ship outside the US, that I will remove the punches from the packaging so I don't have to pay such an exhorbitant shipping amount for the cardboard and plastic. I will also toss in some surprises like I usually do. I am asking that this time you add this pic to your sidebar with a link back to my posting...and leave your information with the little Blue Froggy before Monday, December 3 at Noon EST. Good Luck!!
  

Thank you so much for hopping with us today and I hope you enjoy our Whimsy Prints projects! If you would like to see more Whimsy Prints projects, check out our latest mini magazine over on our Issuu site. This mini issue is filled with beautiful projects, all using prints from the Whimsy Prints Collections. Have a marvelous weekend!!! HUGS!!

Hi Jacque!
What a quick and colorful addition to any project! I
love how the gift bags came together, and the art is so bright and cheerful! Your gift box is wonderful!
Would a gift still go inside? Or is it a box for the recipient's personal treasures?

Have a blessed weekend.
