OCC Challenge & Paper Maniac Baby Blog Hop

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Hello! It's an exciting day here on my blog. I'm here with a new Our Creative Corner challenge, which is to try a new technique. Any technique that is new to you! Splitcoast Stampers is a great resource for techniques and tutorials. The technique that I tried today is called Folded Paper Frame. The paper I used is not double sided, so I adhered the two papers together using snail adhesive and then cut the square to the size I needed.
I am also taking part in a mini blog hop with Paper Maniac to celebrate the birth of a new baby on our DT. Jessy was scheduled for a C-Section on Wednesday. I made my card gender neutral since we don't know the sex of the baby yet. Sending you and your family some lovin', Jessy!!! If you are following our Baby Blog Hop, you should have arrived here from Angie's blog. If you did not and want to start from the beginning, you'll need to go back to the Paper Maniac Blog. The next stop on our Baby Blog Hop is Stephanie!!!
There's also some blog candy to go along with the Baby Blog Hop. All you need to do is leave a comment on the last blog on the hop. Good luck winning these awesome St. Patrick's day goodies.
I hope you have some time to try a new technique this week! Please visit Our Creative Corner to check out all the new techniques the DT tried this week!!!
