Xyron, Graphic 45 and Petaloo Blog Hop Day One - and a Giveaway!

We love doing blog hops with some of the incredible companies in this industry - so imagine how thrilled we are to be doing a blog hop with TWO of our favorites!  All week long we'll be sharing inspiration from the Xyron, Graphic 45 and Petaloo Design Teams - we'll have fall project ideas, tutorials, giveaways and more using the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells and Typography collections and Petaloo Darjeeling embellishments.  So glad you are here!

Sharon Callis takes upcylcing to a whole new level with some great projects on her blog today.  She turns a thrift store box in to a faux spell book and a cutting board in to a wall hanging - and gives us tutorials for both!  She also shares a super cute Halloween card to get you in to the spirit of the season.  Ha!  Spirit!

We love the idea of multi-purpose products, and on her blog today Pinky Hobbs shows us how to turn a chipboard banner in to a mini album! Her step by step instructions make it easy for you to create this little gem at home...perfect for any season.

Ann Corbiere-Scott shows us how we can create some lovely custom gifts very inexpensively.  On her blog today she shares instructions on how to make this handmade box and beautiful altered frame.  Think of all the fabulous projects you can create with just a few sheets of paper and some coordinating embellishments!
