Blog Hop for Lovebug Scrapbooking

Welcome to Lovebug Scrapbooking's "INSPIRE US!" blog hop!! Our blog hops take place on the last Saturday of every month. Thanks so much for joining us!

If you just happened by this blog and didn't realize a blog hop was taking place, please go back to Lovebug Scrapbooking and start the Hop. You won't want to miss all the inspiration from our members....... or the prizes :-)

Our theme for this month is CHRISTMAS!

I am showing you how to use toilet paper on your card.

You start with a stamp without a lot of little detail.


You put a single sheet of toilet paper on the stamp and then wet it thoroughly, put another toilet sheet on top of the last one and wet that one, keep doing this until you have 6 layers on. After this is done let it set until it is dry. This will take at least 3-4 hours to dry, you can use your heat gun but be careful and don't burn it. I let mine dry overnight.


After you take it off your stamp then you get to color it. I make my own spray so I sprayed it light red.

I added stickles and cut out the word with my sizzlits. Have fun and I hope you give it a try.

This blog hop will run from today, November 27th until November 29th.
We will be drawing for winners on November 30th.

Follow along in our blog hop! Your next stop is Dee

If you leave me a comment and sign up to follow me, I will put your name in a drawing to receive some music papers and some of my flowers.

This has been a year full of ups and downs but I am so very thankful for all that I have been entrusted with. I am thankful for my on-line friends and all the support they have given me through the year.

Have a very blessed Thanksgiving. We plan to spend the day with family here in Michigan.

Layout for a Blog Challenge

There were 5 Challenge Blogs participating in a Recipe Challenge.

Sassy Lil' Sketches,
ScrapFIT Workout Blog,
Crop Suey,
Scrap Tiffany
The Cuttlebug Spot

We needed to find the ingredients and use them all on a layout. The sketch came from Scrap Tiffany.
ScrapFIT--use 3 of the same thing on your LO (I used brads on the flowers)
Crop Suey---needed to use ink, paint or mist or all 3. (I sprayed the white cardstock as well as the dryer sheets that I made the flowers from)
ScrapTiffany---use some LACE. (You can see my lace)
Cuttlebug Spot--texture or embossing (I embossed the vellum and then punched them out for the snowflakes)

The icicles are punched from a Marta Steward punch and then I used a gel glitter pen on that and the snowflakes.

A Challenge at ABC DT Blog

For a challenge at ABC DT Challenge we needed to show stitching on our layout.

I hand stitched all the swirls on the left hand side of the layout. I also quilled the flowers. The big pink circle at the bottom is a piece of chipboard that I painted, added tissue paper and then Mod Podge and then put it in an embossing folder and embossed it. I made the brown flower on top of the circle.

The bigger flowers on the left are made from used fabric softer sheets that have been inked and stickled.

Challenge at Chop Suey

The challenge was to use at least 3 out of the following 5 items on your scrappy project/layout/card or whatever you choose to do!

*white cardstock

I used white cardstock, buttons, ink and distressing. I made the flowers from used dryer sheets, inked them and then put stickles on. I used my new MS punch for the vines along the sides. TFL
