♥ Exciting News! ~ Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team Blog Hop! ♥

♥ 2nd post of the day! Please scroll down for my SSS Post! ♥


Hi there lovely peeps! I have some exciting news to share with you all! I have been asked by the amazingly talented and super sweet Becca Feeken to be a part of her own, very first Creative Team. The Amazing Paper Grace Creative Team! She has so many beautiful dies over the years through Spellbinders but now she is starting her very own team with her gorgeous dies! I am thrilled to be a part of this fabulous endeavor! And to get things started, we are having a Blog Hop with prizes!! (more info below)

Becca asked us to share some of our favorite projects! I am my worst critic but over the years, there have been a couple of projects that stand out to me.  Here are a few of them.




This one I just made the other day with some of Becca's beautiful dies and stamps!


Now onto the fun stuff! The Giveaway!

One name will be randomly picked from comments left on each of our five blogs on the APG Creative Team May Blog Hop post between May 3rd and May 8th 2017 at midnight US CST and our international friends can participate also!

What you can win:

Up for grabs is an Amazing Paper Grace die of your choice (excludes the Vintage Elegance Collection) there will be a total of five winners and a winner can only win once. If your name is selected, simply claim it within 2 weeks of announcement by sending your address through the form under the Contact Tab on the Amazing Paper Grace Blog. The dies will be mailed out by Becca once she has received your info and choice of die.

Melissa,
Your last card with Becca die is my absolute favorite from any that she has designed. I just used it to make 16 cards for a Card Swap and had the approval of Becca (we texted about 6 times and she gave me some help) and will be doing the swap this weekend. Really excited for her as she has been so stressed with all she does for her Gracelets!! Looking forward! Congrats!
Hugs
Ann Robbins
