YSS Bloghop starts now! Giveaway 1!

Welcome to Your Scrapbook Stash's Blog Hop! We are hopping from today until Saturday, September 25. Each YSS design team members will giveaway three $10 Gift Certificates from YourScrapbookStash. That means, more chances of winning. Just make sure to checkout each DT everyday this week to win.

Here are the blogs you need to visit this week:

For today, I would kickoff with a layout that I made this weekend using Echo Park's Life is Good line and some Shimmerz Paints all available at YSS Online Store.

I made this layout to showcase how fun and spontaneous Shimmerz paints are. By simply spraying, dropping, splattering on a paper, you can create a very artistic and cool design. On this page, I have used Shimmerz Vibez Pop Art Pink, a cotton candy pink with a HUGE gold shimmer to it, and Pearlz Blue by You. These colors are perfect for the Echo Park line.


There are no accidents when we talk about creativity. Just let go and don't be afraid of messing up your page. Shimmerz paints are so easy to work with. On this layout, I initially just sprayed some Pop Art Pink randomly on my page to add the gold-pinking shimmer that I want and added a lot of paint drops using Blue by You.

******************************
To win: Simply leave me a comment on this post and become a follower of my blog. I will draw the winner for GIVEAWAY 1 this Saturday.

Our Guest designer for this month, Julie Bonner, is also giving away some certificates
so make sure to visit her too... right here!

During the days of the Blog Hop, any orders placed will earn double points! So stock up now to save more later... I mean, seriously... you are going to be buying the stuff at SOME point right? Why not now, lol?!
 
have fun hopping! See you soon!
