Red Rubber Designs Blog Hop and a Giveaway

Welcome to the first stop on the first blog hop for the Red Rubber Designs Design Team. On your hop through the 7 blogs listed, you will see 7 twists on the use of the fun rubber stamp She Was the Life of the Party. So, let's get started!

To be the life of the party, you need a little book to help you plan your party. I thought that the paper stack Uptown Girl was appropriate for this project. For the cover, I stamped part of the image Life of the Party on vellum, embossed with gold detail embossing powder and colored on the reverse with markers.

Inside the book you will find 5 dividers: The Details, Guest List, Decorations, Refreshments, and Shopping. The tabs were made with a 2 1/2" scalloped circle punch.

The inside cover was stamped with the paisley border from the Life of the Party rubber stamp.

After the divided sections with lined paper I included an envelope to hold receipts.

The image on the back of the envelope was again stamped on vellum, colored on the reverse but then layered over a second image that had been stamped on a light pink paper from the paper stack. The words are adhered on top of the vellum. The inside back cover has a pocket to hold business cards or more receipts.

Attached to the ribbon tassel is a charm made by stamping the featured stamp on shrink film.

How would you like to win this party planner? When you leave me a comment, just be sure to include that you would love to win so I will know to include your name in the random draw. I will announce the winner on Tuesday, March 17.

Now you need to head on over to another stop on the blog hop. Here is a list of all the blogs you need to visit in order to be eligible for a package of goodies from the Red Rubber Designs store.
Leave a comment at each stop then go to the Contest Entry post on Sunday, April 15 on the Red Rubber Designs blog and enter the contest there. Contest closes at midnight Sunday, April 15. The lucky winner will be announced Monday, April 16. Good luck and happy hopping!
