Nina B Designs 2nd Blog Hop

**** My CR84FN post is below***

Welcome to the NinaB Designs's 2nd blog hop! We had a great time last month and we just want to thank you for your enthusiasm and encouraging words. The NBD team has new projects to show you today featuring NinaB Designs Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (Home Sweet Home and Sewing Elements), The Craft's Meow Stamps, and Want2Scrap bling.

We have added a new twist to our hop. Not only do we have tons of inspiration for you, but we also are joining in the Crafty Friends' challenge that you can participate in. And of course, there will be prizes up for grabs! You will find more info below.


I decided to make another wall hanging.  I FINALLY got a Spellbinder's Grand Die.  They work great for altered projects.  I took some cardboard and ripped the top layer off.  You are then left with a mess to try and peel off.  I simply mist that thin layer that is left with a little water and let it sit a few minutes.  It peels right off!  Then I painted a thin layer of acrylic paint to the ridges.  I cut the two patterned paper layers embellished and stitched them together and decopaged them to the base.  As you can see I used the Sewing Elements set for the sewing machine and scissors and the Home Sweet Home set for the small button die cut.  I also used a stamp set designed by Nina called Sew Lovely.  Paper is from My Minds Eye. Bling is the pretty Border Bling called Fancy That that Nina designed for Want 2 Scrap.




THE CHALLENGE: If you choose to participate in the challenge, create a new project that uses TWO die cuts. They don't have to come from two different die cut sets. Then, link it to the Crafty Friends' challenge blog. One participant will win the Sewing Elements dies. You can enter as many as you want.
THE RULES: Leave a comment on as many blog hop stops as possible. FOUR commenters left on the NinaB Designs team blogs will be picked to win prizes. One comment per blog please. This is open to our international friends. Here are the links to the NBD team:

THE PRIZES: There are several prizes to be won. One Crafty Friends' challenge blog participant will be randomly picked to get the Spellbinders' Sewing Elements dies
Four commenters left on the NinaB Designs team blogs will be picked to receive the following:
The Craft's Meow's Lovely Birds set
Finally, please consider liking the following Facebook pages that are represented on today's hop:
We hope you enjoy the projects we're sharing with you today and enter the Crafty Friends Challenge as well!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Heather
