Birthday Blog Hop at InStyle Stamps

Hi All!

It is a very special day for the ISS DT - it's our owner Virginia's birthday!  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  The massive DT for this company has put together a hop where we all made a tag with a certain letter, and as you hop along, you will decipher the message!  You should have arrived here from the letter "P", but if you didn't, please head back to the ISS Blog to start at the beginning!

Here's my tag:

My base is Whisper White, followed by a layer of Sweet Slumber DSP, and a Basic Black mat.  I punched a hole at the top with my Horizontal Slot Punch and added some So Saffron ribbon and Linen Thread.  I took a huge "Y" chipboard letter from Close To My Heart, and covered it with red ink, and adhered it to the tag. 

I printed the adorable Eula onto PTI White CS twice, coloured her with Copics, and cut her out.  I used the colorful balloon section from the second image so that it could be layered.  For my final touches, I added a bunch of buttons all around from different button packs.

We are also each giving Virginia a virtual travel itinerary, where we tell her where we would take her if she were in our town!  Well, Virginia, if you came to Toronto, Canada, there are so many things we could do!  We would definitely go to the top of the CN Tower to check out the best view in the city, and I would have to take you to the Eaton Centre, which is one of the biggest malls in Canada!  We would also go to the Air Canada Centre to check out a sports event or a concert, and we would definitely have to ride the subway!

Since this is a Birthday Blog Hop, we can't leave you without a chance at a party prize! So here are the rules.


1. Start at the beginning of the blog hop with the letter H.
2. Comment on each Design Team's blog because they need a little love and increase your chances at the party prize.
3. Go to PaperYumness and wish Virginia a Happy Birthday.

The deadline to win a digital image is Sunday, July 18th at 8:00pm Pacific Time.

That's all you need to do! The prize???? Not one, but two! You might win either one by commenting on a blog. Good luck and hope you have fun all along the way!

The next stop on your hop is the letter "B"!  Have fun!

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
