Big Announcement and a Blog Hop!

I have some news that I have been sitting on for about a week. Yes, it is another Design Team announcement! (I told you I like making stuff!)

About a week, maybe two weeks, ago I got an email from one of my scrappy friends, asking me to join a "hand selected" team for an online scrapbook store. Initially I turned her down, but said maybe I could guest design sometime. I had heard of the store, and had purchased from them before, but I was not sure I "needed" another team! Well, after more talking, and seeing the workload, and the other people involved, I decided to jump on board this creative train!

Drum roll please......

StopAndScrap has announced their first Design Team!

Cindy Coutts (DT Coordinator)
Gloria Stengel - That's me! 

I am so excited to work with these ladies. I know some of them from other current or past design team work, and some I know by reputation! And I am excited to work for an  "up and coming" store!

Every Monday-Thursday the DT will be sharing scrapbook pages, cards, altered items, and more! Every Friday Cindy will be sharing a video tutorial! We would love to have you join in our new challenges with prizes. Here is how you can connect with us:

Pinterest Boards
We are also having a BLOG HOP with the new team! But first, here is a project I made to get you ready to create!


I created a circle card - not something I do every day! But this day is special!


I think I will send this to my mom for Mother's Day. Because I do miss her!


I used Cosmo Cricket Tea For Two papers for my card. Currently, StopAndScrap is stocking mostly printed paper, but with the new team coming on board, they hope to branch out into stamps and other goodies! (I have a special surprise for my Graphic 45 fans who are looking for a place to purchase G45 items...but you must come back tomorrow!)

Now, on to our first blog hop! We have prizes - in fact, we will be drawing a prize winner from EACH design team member's blog and from the StopAndScrap Blog - that is 12 chances to win! The more you hop, the greater your chances are of winning a $20 gift certificate to the store!

Here are the rules:

1.   Leave a comment on ALL of the design team blogs.

2.  Follow us on our StopAndScrap Blog (and on our Facebook page, and all of the other social media avenues listed above, as you are able). Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter!

3.  Leave a comment on the StopAndScrap Blog

4.  Add the StopAndScrap blog badge to your blog.

Start your hop at the StopAndScrap Blog, then hop along with the DT listed above. You should come to me from Cindy's Blog. After me, hop on to Laurel's Blog.

It's that simple! Come back next Monday, May 14, to see if you won!

We are all so happy to have you with us and we look forward to serving you with inspiration and a great shopping experience at StopAndScrap! The store is expanding so be on the lookout for more of your favorites to be added soon!
