PTI July Blog Hop



It is time for PTI blog hop. I love it when it happens on a weekend, because then I have time to get inspired by all the amazing creations. This time the challenge was focusing on Office Supplies - to use them creatively on your paper projects.

I was still in "Christmas in July" mode. So, I created a Christmas card for today's hop. I used the Bingo Image from the It's Official set and used a Post-It Arrow flag to point towards the 25th. I used some paper clips to accent the page. Sentiment from Mixed Messages set completed the card.



I cut out some PTI White paper using PTI Spiral Notebook Page die and then stamped the Bingo Image on it. They fit together very well. And then following Nichole Heady's example, I stamped the circle over the Number 25 using a button. I am quite happy how this card turned out and will probably make a few more. Thanks for stopping by.

You can visit Nichole Heady's blog to see all the other hoppers and their amazing creations.
