Favorite Papertrey Project

2010 was a year of discovery and growth for me in my crafting life. I started the year obsessed and in love with my Cricut. It was around March when I discovered Papertrey Ink. I fell in love, hard and my crafting life changed forever! Since then, I have been all about Papertrey Ink! It is their 4th Anniversary month, and I am so excited to be a part of all the action and look forward to all the fun and new product releases they have in store for us!
To kick off their month long Anniversary celebration, Papertrey Ink is holding the mecca of all contests with a prize package valued at over $700! Go here to join in all of the festivities! We were asked to pick our favorite Papertrey project from 2010. I cannot choose between two. My first every Papertrey project is so near and dear to my heart, I'd feel guilty if I left it out. I used a stamp set I purchased with my first order and combined it with my cricut:
The hot air balloons and sentiment come from the Everyday Button Bits stamp set. The sun and grassy hills come from the Country Life Cricut cartridge. The buttons are Papertrey's Pure Poppy buttons.

But, I also have another card I love and is a favorite because my style has evolved a bit since making that first card. My official favorite Papertrey project :

This card I made using the Year of Flowers: Violets. I did a little masking and coloring with my Promarkers. The card stock is Blueberry Sky, Ocean Mist, and Stampers Select White. The ink is Ocean Mist and Memento, Tuxedo Black. The centers of the flowers are from a Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
