Craft Stamper Take It Make It Blog Hop


Welcome to Craft Stamper's very first Take It, Make It Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from my wonderfully talented teamie Renee's blog; if not, you might want to start at the beginning, where you will also find the full blog hop list - you really don't want to miss out a step!

The January challenge is called "Take a Stamp" - simples!  Just use a stamp somewhere on your creation, enter it into the challenge and you're in with a chance of winning that humungous box of goodies that is showcased on the challenge post.

But that's not all, because there's also prize at every stop on this blog hop.  Leave a comment at each stop, and you're in with 12 chances of winning one of these substrate packages:


Each designer on the hop will also add a little piece of original art to their package, so leave me a comment and you could win the substrate pack, plus my little ATC (minus the mini easel, I'm afraid - that was just for photography purposes).


Your next stop is the fabulously talented Tracy.  Hop along, and good luck!  Don't forget to comment at each stop on the hop, and don't forget to enter the main challenge here.
