Crafter’s Companion Blog Hop/Scavenger Hunt!

Welcome everyone!


For my regularly scheduled Friday’s Crafter’s Companion post, we’re planning for fun! But let me 1st share with you the layout I made for today’s fun!

See the big compass stamp to the right of the layout – that’s the newly released Stamp-it collection this week at Crafter’s Companion. I had lots of fun misting the background with the chicken wire template as a background, then laying down a very old dictionary paper as a mat. I didn’t realize how old it was until I tried putting adhesive on it (just my regular ATG) but the paper was so aged that it was starting to rip as I was laying down adhesive!  A few more patterned paper layers and photo, followed by the compass was the finishing touch for this layout.

*And now for more fun stuff – we have a blog hop and a scavenger hunt going on today and 2 chances to win prizes.*

Now let’s get you started on the Scavenger Hunt! There are 12 design team members and each of us have a question that will give you clues to 12 different items that you can find in the Crafter’s Companion Store.

So your goal is to hop around to all 12 blogs and get all 12 questions and then hop over to the Crafter’s Companion Store to find the answers. When you find all 12 items, you should email them to Bindy at bindy@crafterscompanion.comPlease use the subject line:  CC Blog Hop. That way Bindy can easily find your entry.

This blog hop will run from Friday, April 20th at midnight and end at midnight pst on Sunday, April 22nd. Winners will be announced on the Crafter’s Companion Informational blog on Tuesday April 24th.
