Grand Uni & Dolls Bloghop Party - June 19th to 21st


Welcome to the Grand Uni & Dolls bloghop party! If you have come from Lainie’s Blog, then you are in the right place. If not then begin from the beginning at www.flyingunicornblog.com, because you do not want to miss a thing!
We have an amazing line up of creative and inspirational projects all centering on Julie Nutting Mixed Media Doll Stamps. Let us get this party hopping! I have created two tags for the hop. For both I have used Prima’s Stationer’s Desk Collection and my tip is an easy one…try to use matching collection papers when dressing your Doll and you can use a marker to enhance some of the stamped markings or to fill in little stamped areas...such as her shoes.

 

For my second tag I have used the same collection and added some Creative Embellishment chippys in the background. I also added some chippy wings to my doll and I love the way she turned out! Another tip is to use some pop ups on  your doll….it gives her dimention!

 
 

Want to win the doll I used or any of the other ones, the choice will be yours along with Time Traveler or Seashore collection paper pack by Prima. To be eligible all you have to do is:
