Melanie's Blogaversary Celebration!

Good morning!

Have you had a chance to join in on the fun 'Blogaversary' Celebration that Melanie Muenchinger has been having on her blog?! She has LOTS of fun giveaways and eyecandy for us all for the next several days. Be sure to pop over to her blog to leave a comment and be entered to win some amazing prizes!

When Melanie asked several of her friends to showcase some projects that we've made with her GinaK Designs stamps sets - I just had to join in on the blog hop fun! Out of all of her GinaK stamps, my favorites have to be her adorable animals sets. They were perfect for my 6x6 scrapbook pages that I've been working on the past couple of days.

Project details: Cuddles and Hugs, Jumping for Joy, Just so Hippy, GinaK 80lb. Pure Luxury cardstock, Basic Grey Cupcake paper & embellishments, Fiskars Threading water border punch, copic markers, versafine black ink, detail clear embossing powder, silver cording, paper piercer, nestabilities, Tim Holtz sanding block

The scrapbook pages that I'll be showing throughout the celebration are all photos of my kids from this past year. I was amazed at how many of Melanie's animals and stamp set sayings worked perfectly with my photos. I'll be sharing a couple of pages each day, so I hope you'll hop back each day to see them all. The first photo above is HUGE even though it looks tiny on the screen - so click on it to see all the details of the pages.

These photos are from last Christmas with my kids - so no, I'm not that fast that I'm already doing this years! LOL! Ashley loves Curious George and was thrilled to get another little monkey in her stocking last year along with a fluffy kitty. So, naturally I pulled out Melanie's monkey from her first GinaK stamp set Just so Hippy and her sweet kitties from Cuddles and Hugs because they fit so 'purrfectly' with my photo! Sorry, I couldn't resist...

All the pages that I'll be sharing were make with Basic Grey's Cupcake 6x6 paper pack & embellishments. The images were all stamped in Black Versafine ink on GinaK's 80lb. Pure Luxury Cardstock and embossed with detail clear embossing powder and then colored with Copic markers. The sentiments were all stamped & embossed and then cut out with a Nestability die that fit the sentiment. And, I had no problem finding a matching die for all of her sentiments - I love that!

My son Isaiah is into Legos and Star Wars BIG TIME. This was his favorite present last year - just look at his excitement in his smile! Priceless to me! I couldn't help but think of Melanies adorable Zebra from my very favorite Melanie stamp set Jumping for Joy. I LOVE all the animals in this set - especially this zebra. He is so cute - and the sentiment... well, it's just perfect for so many occasions!

Be sure to hop over to see what all these gals have been working on with Melanie's stamps - I can't wait to see what they've all come up with!!

And, don't forget to enter to win a chance at an awesome stamp prize!

Have a great rest of your day,
