Paper Maniac Birthday Blog Hop

Friday, September 10, 2010

I hope you are ready for a hopping good time!!!  Today we are celebrating Paper Maniac's First Birthday by having a hop along blog hop.  If you arrived here from Angie's blog, you are right where you are supposed to be.  If not, you'll want to head over to the Paper Maniac Inspirations Blog and start at the beginning so you don't miss a thing.  

I've been with Paper Maniac for a whole year now (wow it went by fast!) and have loved being a part of this blossoming company.  I've had so much fun trying new products and "meeting" new people.  Patti, the owner keeps us all up to date on how the store is doing.  It's so fun getting glimpse at what goes on behind-the-scenes at an online store.  There was a lot of trial and error at first, but a lot of successes, and that's all thanks to you all for being such great supporters.  

For my project today, I made a bright "hooray" card along with a wine bottle tag that says "party".  
Here's a close-up of the card.  I used squares of Kaiser Craft's Hippy Girl paper and arranged them like a quilt.  I pierced holes along the lines and used embroidery floss to really give it a quilted look.  
Here's a close-up of the stitching and the dimension that's on the sentiment panel.  I also used some SRM Press stickers for the "hooray" sentiment and the "party" on the wine bottle tag.  It's hard to see in the first photo, but the tag has some stitching on it as well.
There are a ton of prizes that will be given away in celebration of Paper Maniac's First Birthday.  You can find a complete list by clicking here.  Make sure you leave a comment here and on all the other blog hop posts for your chance to win!!!  Leave a comment by Sunday night at 8:00 central and the prizes will be drawn shortly after.  Be sure to "LIKE" Paper Maniac on Facebook, and you may win a prize as well.

Now, the next stop on the Paper Maniac Birthday Blog Hop is Stephanie!!!

Thanks so much for joining in the festivities!!!  Have a great weekend!!!
