Ink 4U Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog!  I am the next hop on the Ink 4U...The Studio! blog hop.  I hope you enjoyed your visit to Marisol's blog A Touch of Sol.  Are you getting inspired with all of these wonderful projects?  I have had so much fun making the projects that I've gotten from Inkspirations 4U! (the predecessor to Ink 4U...The Studio!).

 If you're just joining us on my blog, don't worry - you can just continue hopping all the way around, or you can go to the beginning and start from there.

The project I chose to make is the Mixed Bunch Accordion File from the Celebrating U! 2012 Edition.  This project was so easy to make - especially with the step-by-step instructions and pictures provided by Madeline!


My project looks very similar to the original.  I usually like to make my first one of a project a lot like the original (I find it's easier to follow the instructions that way).  After the first one though, I like to change up the papers and stamp sets that I use.
Here is a picture of the inside opened up a little:
Here is the front of the project.  It's so bright and cheery!  I just love it! 

I used the Mixed Bunch and Itty Bitty Banners stamp sets (and coordinating Bitty Banners Framelits - available in the upcoming Idea Book & Catalog!), Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper, and 3/8" Brights Glimmer Brads.

I would encourage you to visit the INKSpirations 4U! blog to register for the new edition of INK4U! that launches on June 1st.  This is a new site that is FREE for everyone to join!  This site will hold ideas and every member is free to share their ideas as well!  I've enjoyed the Inkspirations 4U! site so much - I'm excited to see what Madeline has in store for this new blog!

The next blog on the hop is Lisa Eisner's Crafting with Princess Lisa  Hopefully (if I've done things correctly) you should be able to click on the image below and have it take you there.
I'm sure you will enjoy the rest of the blog hop - I can't wait to see all of the creations myself!  Let me know what you think!
