Whimsical Wednesday Blog Hop

Hello crafting friends. Welcome to our Whimsical Wednesday Blog Hop. Tonight kicks off the start of the new term with the Whimsical Designers. The new team is a combination of some of our previous designers, and some new designers. Please help me in giving them a warm welcome. So what is this hop all about? We all decided to come together to help out a lady named Barbara, and create beautiful banners/wall decor, that we will all be sending to a nursing home. I am sure that you will get lots of ideas for wall decor for your own home on this hop. Before I send you on your way, let me tell you about our sponsors and the wonderful blog candy they donated, and the grand prize.

Patsy from the Praire Bird Boutique is donating one bundle of her hand died Shabby Crinkle Ribbon. You get to choose the bundle that you want. Here is a package of her beautiful ribbon so you can see what it looks like
Patsy's Ribbon is gorgeous!! Be sure to check out Patsy's shop for a beautiful assortment of colors. When you order Patsy's Ribbon it comes packaged so nicely, and it is at your door within three days. Speedy shipping:)

Next Babette from the Kraft Outlet is donating their "Inspirational Play Pack." This is a collection of their top selling items valued at over $45.00. Here is what is included:10 yards each of their red and brown baker's twine, an assortment of 50 of their plain and grungy tags, an 8 sheet assortment of their card stock and text weight papers, assortment of 8 envelopes, one sheet of Kraft labels, one set of their vintage dictionary pages, one yard of black twill tape, and a CD filled with 100 graphics and backgrounds.

In addition, for the entire month of July Babette is offering a 10% discount off of all purchases made at the Kraft Outlet. Just enter the code: July 10 at checkout. If you follow me on a regular basis then you know that I am huge fan of the Kraft outlet. I use Kraft card stock for most of my card bases. I LOVE that stuff. In addition to very fast shipping the Kraft Outlet has the best prices. You really get a bang for your buck.

Thank you to both our sponsors for their generous donations.

Now for the grand prize a Gyspsy
In order to become eligible for the grand prize you must become a follower of this blog and leave a comment under all of our designers blog hop post. Once you get to the last stop on the hop the the lovely Cathryn will have a link for you to get back here. You must leave a comment under this post letting me know that you visited all the designers, and left them a comment. We would also love for you each to leave one suggestion for a challenge that you would like Whimsical Wednesday to have. The hop runs all through the weekend so you have until Sunday night till Midnight to leave a comment. I will announce the winners here on Wednesday July 13.  Don't forget to come back to see if you are one of the lucky winners. We also be starting back up our challenges. You want to miss the "interactive" fun that the scrapbooking team has in store for you.

If you are interested in reading more about how we got involved in sending our projects to a nursing home please stop by here. They could really use all of our help.

Your next stop is Stephanie. Below is the complete line up for the blog hop. Again, thank you for joining us for the hop, we hope you enjoy our projects tonight

  12. Super fun! I just commented on all the blogs!! Let me think of an idea... I love color challenges, but there is nothing like a good theme. I would love to do an OUTDOOR challenge. I have spent my summer geocaching and will be leaving next week to travel Europe with my mom, so anything outdoors would be super fun! i am keeping my fingers crossed to win the Gypsy! I don't have one, but it would be a great tool since I am ALWAYS finding myself on the go!! Thanks for the hop, I had a wonderful time!! Love your blog, and will be back in August (since I will off traveling for a while) to participate in some challenges! Can't wait!!

  19. I loved the hop and made it all the way through! Suggestion in the future could you please ask your participants to turn off their word verification? When there are so many to get through it really slows things down:( In regards to challenges I love sketches and would love to see some male project challenges. I have boys and often times can't participate in some challenges because it is way to girly in requirements. Looking forward to participating! http://visionsofpaper.blogspot.com/

  27. So excited it is time for the blog hop. I think it is great that you ladies are sending your projects to a nursing home. I used to volunteer at the nursing home up the road from my house hosting a bible study twice a month and a craft day twice a month as well. We took Christmas stockings to all of the residents for the past two years and it really brightens all of the residents days.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thank you so much for putting together this blog hop, what a wonderful thing to do to brighten others days... I loved all of the projects made and they made me feel happier too! Thanks so much! As for future challenges... I would love more children or baby projects, since I'm constantly behind on this hehehe! Thanks so much!

I am super excited about the grand prize. I have wanted a gypsy for a while and I have the chance to win one. If I dont happen to win I think I have drilled it into my hubby's head enough that he will get me one for my bday in august.

  73. What a great blog hop! I just made it through. I left comments on all the blogs, but I wasn't able to become a follower of all the blogs. I will try again.
    I like color challenges. I tend to use the same colors in my paper crafts. Color challenges would force me to use a color I wouldn't normally choose. I would also like challenges with a specific theme.

    Thanks for the great ideas!
