Die-Versions Blog Hop





Welcome to the first ever Blog Hop from Die-Versions.  It starts today, 9/17 and goes until 9/22, with the winners being posted on the Die-Versions Blog on Sept 23.  Speaking of prizes, there will be a $50 gift certificate Grand Prize to be used in the DV store PLUS 5 others will win $10 gift certificates.  Pretty fantastic prizes, I'd say.

How do you enter?  It's easy, just leave a comment for each of us DV Dynamos and at the final stop, the DV Blog, leave a comment stating which was your favorite die out of all the projects you saw.  The winners will be randomly chosen from the design teams comments.


Now, some details about my project.  I've used the new Holiday Half Pint die and cut out two different patterned papers to create my tag for my gift and I added the word "Cheer", a DV Casting Call font, which is covered in glitter for lots of bling.  It's a quick and easy project to make and is perfect for this host/hostess gift.

I'm the first stop on the blog hop, so you are in the right place.  Your next stop will be Emmy to see what awesome project she has created for you.

Here's the complete blog hop order:

Anne Temple (you're here)

Happy hopping and don't forget to leave each of us some love (in the form of comments) in order to be eligible for those fabulous prizes!

Great idea! Very pretty alphabet you used with this holiday-die.

Donna Ellis said...

I like this half pint die, Anne! Just large enough to be able to keep with the bottle for storage, and not to get crumpled. It seems it might work on hand lotion and other girly gifts, too! I'm especially impressed with those tiny little letters, and how you have glittered them up and put them on the die cut. Such dexterity is a gift! hugs, de
