Crafter's Companions HOP! HOP! HOP!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the Crafter's Companion Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop!!
I'm so happy you hopped by today!! Before we get started I wanted to share with you the project I made today. I used the CD-ROM from the Beatrix Potters Line of products, called Two Bad Mice. This Cd is out now, check it out.
The CD is very easy to use. Let me walk you through it step by step. After putting the disk in the computer just pick a menu, next find what you want to make and just print it out and then cut and glue.Yes it's that easy. Now you just need to embellish and you're done.
This is what I came up with:

Super fun and fast.

Now let's get you started on the Scavenger Hunt! There are 12 design team members and each of us have a question that will give you clues to 12 different items that you can find in the Crafter's Companion Store.
So your goal is to hop around to all 12 blogs and get all 12 questions and then hop over to the Crafter's Companion Store to find the answers. After you have found the answers you will then put them in an email to Bindy at
If you do that and follow the other requirements which I will tell you in a minute you will be entered into the drawing to win the Grand Prize which is the entire Peter the Rabbit Collection of Stamp Sets!! This will add up to 9 (!) awesome stamp sets!

Along the way each designer will have a project to inspire you and also the possibility to win on their individual blogs too!! Each designer is giving away a Cute Companions -Romance stamp set, two embossing powders (one white and one blush rose) and one sheet of EZ mount foam!

This blog hop will run from Friday, April 20th at midnight PST and end at midnight PST on Sunday, April 22nd. Winners will be announced on the Crafter's Companion Informational blog on Tuesday April 24th.

Here are the requirements to win:

Gift Container for Dad's Day

Hello Everyone,

I have a wonderful sneak peek at some
new Father's Day stamps.
Yes Father's Day!!


Stamp It Australia, has come out with these great
masculine stamps
you can use for Father's day.
This way, you can work on your projects and not be in
a big hurry to get them done.
I know some of you have more than two or three
 cards to make. This way you can take your time.

Today I am making an altered container to hold a gift.

I started out with a gift container you
would put a bottle of wine in.
First I pulled out some of my beautiful mulberry paper. 

Then I used the
to fill three sheets of paper.

After letting them dry, I brushed the
container with shimmer Mod Podge and
glued the pieces down. Then went over the top
with the same product to give it a nice shimmer.

I put a piece of black and gold mulberry paper
on the lid and let everything dry.

For the tag to go with the gift, I used

Just stamp them on white card stock,
airbrush with the Spectrum-Noir Markers,
color in the time piece and your done.

The person I'm giving this to doesn't
like wine, so I filled it with his favorite candy.

Here is the finished project.

These awesome stamps from Stamp It Australia,
are here now!!! Get them while their hot!!!
Pop over to the
and take a look.
There are many, many, stamps to use for
every occasions.

Stay close by because we are going to have a Scavenger Hunt Blog hop on Friday
the 20th through Sunday the 22nd
There will be some Great Prizes!

I hope you enjoyed the project today.
I had a great time making it.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
And have a scrappy Day.
