Design Team Day ~ Nov. 20, 2013

Hey, everyone!  It's time for another Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Design Team Day!  Yippee!!!  So, without further ado.....

For my project, I created this pretty shaped Christmas Card.  I used this week's freebie...the Holly Wreath Cutting Files for this one.  I replaced the berries and the bow, though, with some pretty rhinestones and some ribbon.  I also embossed the wreath using my Cuttlebug Holly Ribbons embossing folder.  The pretty little sentiment is from Pink by Design's Merry Be Your Days Half Pint Stamp Set.  

Now, for the wonderful projects from the PPPR Design Team.  Before I show them all to you, I want to say how sad I am that this will be Tanya from Nonna's Craft Corner's last post with us.  :(  We'll definitely miss having her around because she's a wonderful lady and SUPER talented.  Here's what she created, along with all of the other amazing projects for this week:

Tanya Adams ~ Nonna's Craft Corner
Forest Critters and Layered Labels 1 Cutting Files

Didn't they all do a fantastic job?  I love seeing what they create.  Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I'll be back on Friday with a Guest Designer, new files, and a FREEBIE!  YAY!

Until then...have a great week!

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Superhero Blog Hop

Happy Saturday, everyone!  Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons (PPPR) Superhero Blog Hop. The awesome ladies on the PPPR Design Team and I created some SUPER projects using PPPR files, and we are so excited to share them with you today.  We also have some yummy blog candy for this hop, and I have a FREEBIE just for hoppers!  YAY!  And, of course, we'll be kicking off another monthly challenge. So, be sure to read on to find out how to join in on the fun.  

First, I'd like to share the projects I created for the hop.  I decided to make 2 different cards.  Here they are:

I created this card base using the PPPR Center Panel Step Card Cutting Files.  The superhero and sidekicks came from the PPPR Superheroes Trio and PPPR Sidekick Trio Cutting Files sets.  I decided to print and cut them with a white border for that "sticker" type of look.  That also made creating the card a lot faster.  I added some cool jute ribbon and a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Super Hero Stamp Set, and my first card was all done.

My second card base is from the PPPR Sunburst Shapes Cutting Files set.  The superhero is from the PPPR Superheroes Trio 2 Cutting Files set, and the speech bubble is from the PPPR Speech Bubbles Cutting Files set.  I added a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's Super Hero Stamp Set and some lightning bolts from Jaded Blossom's My Favorite Wizard Stamp Set and some fun stripey ribbon.  

I also created a little Superhero Words Cutting Files set just for the hop, and you can get this set for FREE today and tomorrow, ONLY, so be sure to snag it by clicking the Add to Cart button below. ***NO LONGER AVAILABLE AS A FREEBIE***

This file is no longer available as a freebie, but you can PURCHASE IT HERE. :)

Our hop also kicks off our 6th monthly challenge.  Woo HOO!  The theme this month, of course, is SUPERHERO. Create anything superhero themed using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files, and link it up. You can find out all of the details and link up your project by clicking the photo below OR by clicking HERE.

Okay, now how about some BLOG CANDY????

One lucky hopper will win a $15 Gift Certificate to PPPR, a 6x6 inch paper pad, some glitter tape, some glittery confetti, and some BLING.  Here's what you need to do for a chance to win this awesome prize:

Guest Designer ~ Gloria Zuniga & New File & FREEBIE Friday

TGIF, everyone! My Guest Designer this week is Gloria Zuniga from Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot.  She created some beautiful fall decorations.  The garland was created using the Falling Leaves and new Thankful Titles 1 Cutting Files.  The pretty treat bags were created using the Falling Leaves and Oval Window Treat Bag Cutting Files.  Aren't they just gorgeous?  You can check out all of the information about these projects on Gloria's Blog. It would be awesome if you could stop by to leave her some bloggy love about her projects. :) for this week's new files. This week, I added some pretty Thanksgiving-themed items to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store.

I created three different sets of Thanksgiving-themed titles. These would be great as scrapbook titles or sentiments on cards, tags, or decor items. These titles are only available as cutting files, but the sets include .PNG and .JPG clip art files, as well.  You can see these titles in the store by clicking on the photos below.

I also decided to try something new.  Pocket-style scrapbooking is becoming more and more popular, and I find myself drawn to try out these Project Life inspired type of pages. So, I thought I'd try my hand at creating some Thanksgiving/Autumn-themed cards.  These are clip art cards, the individual pieces will not cut.  But, the .PNG files can be used on digital scrapbook pages, printed out individually, or printed out as a set (a .PDF file is included to make this easier). They also make great backgrounds for greeting cards.  Each of the designs you see here is included in a 3x4" size and a 4x6" size.  So, you are getting 15- 3x4" cards and 15- 4x6" cards.  You can click on the photo to see this set in the store.

Also, there's a new FRIDAY FREEBIE in the store. This file will be available as a free download for one week, then it will be moved to the 99 Cent Downloads section of the store.  This freebie includes SVG., DXF, .JPG, and .PNG files. YAY!  

I want to announce the winner of our PPPR and Peachy Keen Blog Hop.  The randomly-chosen winner of the $15 Gift Certificate to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store is J Ake.  I don't have any way to get in touch with you, so please e-mail me at lisanorris at prettypapergraphics dot com to claim your prize. :)

I also hope that you'll stop by tomorrow for our Superhero Blog Hop.  There will be tons of fun projects and some fun prizes up for grabs.  So, don't miss out...we hope to see you there!

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons and Peachy Keen Thankful Blog Hop

Happy Wednesday, everyone, and welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons (PPPR) and Peachy Keen Stamps (PK) Thankful Blog Hop.  Today the PPPR and PK design teams are joining together to create amazing projects with a Thankful theme.  So, be sure to stop by each and every blog so you don't miss one bit of inspiration, and be sure to comment on each post for a chance to win some awesome prizes.  (I'll tell you more about that later).  For now, here are my Thankful projects:

First, I created this silly little card:

The background of this card is from the new PPPR Thankful Pocket Cards clip art set.  These printable cards are perfect for pocket-style scrapbooking, but they also work well as greeting card backgrounds.  The bowl of broccoli is from the PPPR Thanksgiving Feast Cutting Files set, and I added an adorable face from the PK Sweet & Innocent Face Assortment.  Then, I added some doodles, a computer-generated sentiment, and some jute ribbon, and my little card was all done.

I also created this fun little treat bag:

The little jack-in-the-box is from the PPPR Santa's Helpers Cutting Files set.  Of course, I added a sweet little face from the PK In the Garden Face Assortment.  I placed the toy on the PPPR Oval Window Treat Bag and added a sentiment from Pink by Design's Sweet Grams Stamp set.  

Okay, about some BLOG CANDY???

One lucky blog hopper will win a $15 Gift Certificate to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons, and another lucky hopper will win a $15 Gift Certificate to Peachy Keen Stamps.  YAY! sure to comment on each and every blog along the way.  We'll announce the winners on Friday.

Thank you so much for hopping along with us today.  Your next stop on the hop is Cassandra's Blog.
