Documenting the Everyday Blog Hop

Welcome to the Documenting the Everyday Blog Hop!  We are thrilled to be sharing with you 3 new stamp sets today!  Two of them focus on memory keeping/journaling and the third one is a collection of everyday greetings.  All of them are super fun and are sure to make you smile.

We are also releasing three more planner clips.  These cuties can be used on your notebooks, journals and are perfect on a layout, too.

The design team has created some amazing projects for you.  Have fun hopping and we hope you will find some crafty inspiration along the way.

You can't have a blog hop without some awesome blog candy.  We are giving away a set of our Documenting the Everyday stamps and a set of our planner clips (including the new ones released today).  So we will have two winners: one for the stamp set and one for the clip set.

What do you have to do to enter?  That's super easy!  Follow and comment on each blog in the hop (including this one).  You have until 11:59 pm, Sunday, August 14th to enter.  Winners will be announced on Sunday, August 21st.

Here is our lineup:

Trendy Twine - Beth - Helen - Kim - Millie - Shelly - Sukie - (you are here)

Sit back, relax and spend some time with us.  Here are the new stamp sets:
You should be arriving from Shelly's blog, if you just came across my blog, you may want to start at the beginning of the hop on the Trendy Twine blog.  For my first project, I created a single page 12x12 layout with the Documenting the Everyday #2 stamp set.  I used the DCWV Premium Denim Stack and the DCWV Scripts and Music Notes Stack for the background of my layout page.  A fringe border and corner accent was cut from the Recollections Gold Foil card stock sheet.
The "hello" tag is from my stash and was layered on a journaling tag and some coordinating paper. A trail of denim flower surrounded the photo mat.  A gold doily was tucked in behind the photo mat and a Camera Planner Clip accented the photo mat.  Some Totally Navy Trendy Twine was used to embellish my layout page.  A journaling tag was tucked in and accented with some more twine.  A Chevron Trendy Page Dot was added to the tag.  An embossed arrow and sentiments from the Document the Everyday #2 stamp set were adhered above the photo mat.  A die cut gold seal was tucked under the sentiments as an embellishment.  A few scattered sequins were the finishing touch on my layout page.
My second project for today was created with the new Smile stamp set.  My husband just celebrated his birthday a few days ago so I needed a masculine birthday card.  The papers are from the DCWV Maps, Text, Ledgers Stack which was layered with a Journaling Tag and another Manila tag which was stapled on top.  I ended up using the back side of the Journaling Tag which ended up working better on my card.  A bit of washi tape was added to both of the tags.  The sentiment is from the new Smile stamp set.
A bit of Totally Chocolate Trendy Twine was added to each of the tags.  I used some burlap ribbon on the Journaling Tag for a bit more texture.  A few punched stars and a hand cut flag were the finishing touch on my card.
I am the last stop on the hop so I hope you enjoyed all of the crafty projects and inspiration provided along the way.  Thanks so much for stopping by, don't forget to head on over to Annie's Paper Boutique to take a closer look at each of the newly released stamp sets and some of the other goodies used on my projects.  Have a fabulous day!
