Jillian and Friends Blog Bash

Welcome to the Jillian and Friends Blog Bash
(Quick Quotes Blog Hopper's - Click HERE!)

Hi and Welcome to the Blog Bash to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day!

Please enjoy some awesome creations from VERY talented crafty peeps using A Jillian Vance Design Products!!!  So please hop along for inspiration and fun!  Please leave some love for our Friends along the way!!! 

So here we go . . .   If you're hopping along you should have arrived here from the very talented Melinda's blog!

Here's my project using the AJV signature colors (red, black and white!) for inspiration which are conveniently also in the Imaginisce Sole Sisters line.  : ) 

"You're my favorite peep" coffee cup mini album

How cute is this fun Peepster stamp and the Pear Pin?

I've also used a few of the AJV {die}signs here as well.

A fun tag from Core'dinations and a coordinating Sole Sister's sticker stacker.

This mini was very easy to create.  To start, just take a clean new paper coffee cup in your favorite color scheme.  (This one came from Seattle's Best brand in Border's.)  Cut the paper cup in half, cut out the bottom and flatten down.  For the interior pages, use a few coffee cup insulators for the base.  I bound it with my Zutter Bind It All.  Then the fun begins as you can add your decorative touch to the mini.  The charm is all of the layers and textures. 

I used several Spellbinders die cut shapes and layered them up.  I also used some of the packaging from my Sole Sisters embellishment packs.  The red is such a vibrant shade!

The really cool thing about the stamp set that I used for this project ...  yep, they are Easter themed, but they work for so many more projects than just that. 

Your next stop on the hop is Annette!
