Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Happy 1st Anniversary/Birthday Blog Hop

Hello!

Welcome to the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Birthday Blog hop! Wasn't Tamara Bennett's project fabulous? If you didn't come to my blog via Tamara, be sure to visit Lindsay's blog to start at the beginning, and if you get lost along the way, go there to find your way again!


I have lots to show you, so let's get started. Do you like freebies? I know I do, and that's how I got the Funky Wood grain paper I used on my first project. Lindsay is always giving away things free to her customers and blog readers. You can get some freebies too, just stop and join in the virtual crop in the Crop Room at My Grafico. There is a free give away each day to those who come to the Crop Room. It will only be available there that day, then they will go on sale in the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff store.


This is a blank set of note cards I made using a square punch and a corner rounder. I got the idea from a recent issue of Papercrafts magazine.

This next item is a bookmark I made for myself using the Creepy Crow set. It's a Halloween set, but I have found many uses outside of the holiday for it.



I love the swirled accent this bird image has. Interested in the Creepy Crow set? Well, now would be the time to purchase it. Everything in Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Shop is 50% off!





Finally, how would you like to win some stamps?






I'm giving away this set named Winged Things as blog candy to someone who leaves me a comment on my blog. In fact, leave each team member a comment along the way, and you will be entered to win the set they are giving away each day! For a second chance to win, grab the "I'm A Fan" button and add it to your blog. Then come back and leave me a comment that you completed that task...Simple!







My card uses the butterfly image and the swirled image from the Winged Things set. I love that swirled image matched the embossed background of the card.





I also did some embossing with clear powder and added a couple of rhinestones to my layered butterfly.



Remember, leave me a comment for a chance to win. Grab the button for your blog, and leave me another comment for a second entry for the set. Everything in the Lindsay's Stamp Stuff shop is 50% off and there are freebies available in the Crop Room!


Now, next on the hop is Rebekah!

Beautiful cards Karin, I am glad you thought those birds were nice enough to use outside of Halloween, I thought so too. Your butterfly card is gorgeous, and I love how you used the flourish behind it. Thanks for sharing, ~Diane
