Blog Hops, Classes and CHEVRONS! Oh MY!

If you're here for my BIG NEWS about Little Yellow Bicycle, welcome to my blog. Click HERE to see how excited I am about joining the design team.

If you're here for the Scrappin' Savvy Blog Hop, click HERE to see some of my class projects and to enter to win a spot in my class.

If you are here for the Paper Issues Blog Hop and for a chance to win a great prizes, you are in the right place!

How would you like to win a little mini kit, similar to the one shown, packed full of chevron and other goodies?  All you have to do is participate in the Paper Issues blog hop that starts today and goes for two weeks. Each creative team member will be giving away a kit on their blog as well as the Paper Issues blog so you have lots of chances to win!  All you have to do to win this kit is leave me a comment and follow my blog if any of my projects have inspired you!
Have you been to the Paper Issues blog or etsy store? It's a really great concept because we all have paper issues, right?  Well Paper Issues is an inspirational blog that has a new "issue" every two weeks. Anyone can link up your old or newly created project for the current theme for a chance to be featured or to get some extra traffic to your blog too. The theme this week is SHOW ME YOUR CHEVRON!

Now let me share a bit of CHEVRON projects I've been working on and a coupon code to the Paper Issues store.

So this first layout is the 1-page layout we will be doing in my May class at Scrappin' Savvy. April's class is using the My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart "Be Amazing" collection as seen HERE and May will be using the Echo Park "Charming" collection, as seen below. If you can't make my class, you can get this Echo Park This & That "Charming" collection on the Paper Issues etsy store at 20% off using coupon code: HEATHER 


Supplies:
Echo Park This & That collection: THC26010 Numbers, THC26013 Border Strips, THC26014 ElementStickers, THC26015 AlphaStickers, Brown/white twine from The Twinery, Studio Calico Mr. Huey mists in Estate Green, Pony and Piglet, misc. buttons, Sew Stamper tool


We'll also be creating this 2-page layout and a notepad cover (not pictured). Again, you can get the supplies to make this on the Paper Issues etsy store using the 20% off coupon code: HEATHER
 If you look closely at the background cardstock, you can faintly see a chevron print. I made that using a Crafter's Workshop mask and mist.

Lastly, I made this card using photo corners to make the chevron pattern. I posted the DIY  instructions HERE.


Remember to leave a comment and follow my blog (if you liked what you saw) for a chance to win the mini kit I am giving away. Make sure to visit the other ladies to increase your chances of winning:
