Hoppin' at Scrapmaster's Paradise!

Welcome to the SP & Company April Blog Hop! I'm guesting this month (thank you, Sami!), and I'll be showcasing my creations using goodies over the next few weeks.  :)

Today I'm thrilled to be a part of this fun little hop-a-long, and I know you're going to love what you see along the way!

Last month, SP & Company introduced Die Tools, with more coming out this month! And you're TOTALLY going to want to check out the new SP Storage Binder System for wonderfully simple and fabby organization of dies and stamps.

Annnnnnd, some huge news!  This month a brand new artist joins the SP family - Gill Roberts! - and I'm sharing my first project today using one of her sweet clear stamps. You'll see a bunch of Gill along the hop, including some HOT new coordinating dies.  :)  Yeah, we love dies.  I know you do, too.

Scrapmaster's Paradise is now IN COLOR with the release of six new SP exclusive colors, and believe me when I say they're DROOL-WORTHY. This exclusive color line now includes button mixtures and coordinating premium chalk ink pads.  The ink pads will begin shipping mid-month, but the buttons are available starting right now!  CLICKING HERE will take you to all the fun new releases at the store.  :)  The button mixtures come in PERFECT little metal tins for easy storage and organization (espesh for those of you who like the magnetic system!)...  Check out the yummalish ink and button colors:

Yep.  Want.  ALL. 

So....  I played, and combined a few fun SP & Company products.  Check it!

Colored her with COPICS (yeah, I know - weird!)...  Kept the layout simple so I could focus on the image, added in a little banner (since the Trends Challenge going on right now is Banners and Flags - enter through April 16th!), and added those lurrrrrvely buttons!  There are some gorje colors in the button selection, so you'll want to check them out with the rest of the new products by CLICKING HERE.

And close-up on the banner/buttons:

Sadly, the cardstock didn't photograph well AT ALL - it's this gorgeous shimmery/iridescent pink and the bling really picks up on the color, but here it just looks like a scratchy, bland surface.  BOO.  OH!  And the sentiment is from another set from the Gill Roberts collection, "Best Mom Ever".  LOVE the quality of these stamps - they are crisp and clear on the very first impression!

So.  What do you need to know?  That we're HOPPIN' at SP & Company, and you should join us!  If you arrived here from Melissa's blog, then you're on the right track.  Kelli is your next stop!  You'll find the rules on Sami's blog, so check out all the designers' blogs, and comment along the way, then be sure to end up Chez Sami!  Happy hopping, and thanks for stopping by!  :)
