Hello Crafty World,

Here at Cuttin and Stampin we are HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY and in the mood to CELEBRATE. Today we are having a blog hop Celebrating our new Design Team and kicking off our weekly challenge blog. Each of us has produced projects to Celebrate. This is the starting point and there are 11 other stops along the way.

There are 11 new Design Team members and the final stop is where you can enter to WIN blog candy. There are (2) $25.00 gift certificates to A Muse Studio up for grabs. So grab a cup of coffee and hop along to meet the NEW CUTTIN and STAMPIN Design Team.

I’m Tammy and an accountant and an A Muse Studio Consultant. I started creating at a very young age. About 6 years ago my son persuaded me to purchase my first Cricut. There was just no other way to create a special invitation to ask his girlfriend to the Homecoming dance. I’ve been obsessed with paper, stamps and ink ever sense. About 18 months ago I became a consultant for A Muse Studio. Their products fit perfectly into my style of crafting.

I created two projects for our Celebrateion hop.  The first one is a banner to hang on the door for New Years Eve. 

The banner says CELEBRATE 2013.  It's a small banner and fits across the front door.

I created some rosettes to pop up the letters and numbers.  I cut some fireworks and put one on each end of the banner.  

I used A Muse Studio paper Shimmery Cherry and Bermuda for the banner base and letters.  I used the Candy Stripe paper for the Rosettes and Onyx for the blackout letters. 

My second project is to Celebrate the birth of a new baby.  My close friend is expecting him any day now.  

Here is an acrylic picture frame with a solid paper backing and pop up pieces on the front.  I stamped the numbers from the A Muse Cupcake Companion  stamp set on to gingham check paper.  

Now we just need to wait for the baby to show up to add a picture and fill out the information on the popup flower on the bottom.  

I want to thank you all again for stopping by and being part of our CELEBRATION Hop. Your next stop is
Teresa's Blog - Create Engoy Share

Don’t forget to hop all the way through leaving comments for each of the DT members and enter to win blog candy at the end.
