Paper Crafts Magazine Presents: A Card Style Mystery Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Card Style Mystery Blog Hop! This is a super fun hop put on by the fine folks at Paper Crafts Magazine to celebrate their super sweet new issue, "Card Style". Make sure you keep on scrolling through this post because there are prizes to be won! :)

This magazine is super fab, you can even purchase it online! A bunch of us were asked to make cards in our go-to-style for the magazine. Mine (in case you didn't already know, hehe) is fun and cute! Making cards for this publication was so fun! It was like a license to create fun and happy non stop! The other thing that was cool was that we were asked to make specific cards, for example, one of mine was "thinking of you". It really helped me broaden my go to style by creating for events I might not normally create for.

Fun and cute is my go to style because crafting is my happy place, and, well, I want my happy place to be filled with happy! I also really love puns and making inanimate objects, animate, clearly! Pool floatie and beach ball in love? Sure! Why not?! Fun and cute is a world where all reality can be suspended and imagination takes over. What could be more awesome than that? :)

I had so much fun making this card. I love these cute Pebbles and American Crafts papers! I used Lawn Fawn's Swimsuit Season, Partly Cloudy and Harold's ABCs sets with Copics for lots of bright fun and a custom silly sentiment. Glossy accents on the punched out heart was the perfect touch. Glossy Accents makes anything look like a custom fancy embellishment! Also, want to make something in the fun and cute style? Add a smiley face. It always does the trick :).

Let's talk prizes! There is a mega prize pack (it's crazy awesome!) to be won. How to do it: Make sure to leave comments on all 18 mystery blogs and on the Paper Crafts Connection blog and Moxie Fab World blog. That is a total of 20 chances to win and 3 winners will be chosen! You can check out the Paper Crafts Connection and Moxie Fab World blogs to see the prizes. All comments must be posted by Sunday, July 18th and winners will be announced on Tuesday, July 20th at the PC Connection and Moxie Fab blogs. So make sure to hop along to the next mystery blog by clicking on this Card Style logo here:.
