Fabulously 40 Blog Hop

animated gif maker

Hello and Happy Birthday to Jen! Welcome to her Fabulously 40 Blog Hop. You have probably here from Jackie  but if you want to start at the beginning you can pop over to Jen's.

In honor of Jen's birthday I was inspired to create something I know I would love to receive as a gift! And since I rarely make things just for myself I decided I would do just that. So, here is a gift for me but I will share the idea with all of you!  Be sure to read to the bottom...there is some very exciting blog candy I will be sharing with you as well!



This fabulous Maya Road Clear ATC Stand is now available at Paper Patch Crafts.  I love it!  It includes the chipboard ATC (artist trading cards) and the metal rings..you supply the imagingation.  The majority of the supplies I used to decorate my flip album were also purchased at Paper Patch Crafts.  They have so many fun items items from companies such as: Maya Road, Echo Park, Kaiser Craft and more.

Here are the details of my album:

I used file tabs on the sides of my flip pages for a little added cute-ness.  The crochet flower is demonstrated at a previous post over here.  The photos are of my adorable sons from many years ago.  I decided this would sit on my desk at work so I can look back on the good days when they were younger.

The paper line I used is For The Record from Echo Park.  The Butterfly is Maya Road and comes in an assortment of blank chipboard.  I used Hydrangea Blue Maya Mist and then covered it in stickles.


What would be a birthday without gifts and candy?  Blog candy to be more specific!  Anne, the owner of Paper Patch Crafts has generously donated a $10 gift certificate to her fabulous online store!  In order to win the candy you simply need to click the button to become a follower at my blog and leave a comment.  It is mandatory that you also leave me your email address.  While I do appreciate your blog address and will enjoy checking it out as well...I still need your email address so that if you should win I can notify you.  Unfortunately if you neglect to, I will have to pick someone else. 

I hope this project has inspired you!  I also love your comments!  Now, to continue onwards in this hop...go on over to Susan's Blog.

Christine Real said...

Hi Shelley,

I just stopped by to have another look at your project. So you got the Maya Road Clear Acrylic Stand from Paper Patch Crafts, where did you get those tabs that go on the side? How do they attach? You have to understand that I was taught to scrap by a Creative Memories Consultant and have only started going out on my own in the past year, so all of this is new to me! Chriss
