LEAP Blog Hop

Welcome to


Have we got a hop challenge for you today.
Take the letters L-E-A-P and create any paper crafting project; a card, a scrapbook layout, a journal page, etc.  Here is the trick....whatever you make must use L-E-A-P in it somewhere.
For example:
A lavender (L) card with embossing (E) and angled (A) with prills (P).

Get it?

So who is up to the LEAP challenge. Throw a frog into your project and you've leaped right off the lily pad.  Now on with the projects...


For my L-E-A-P, I chose the following:

L = Leftover Paper.  I used the pieces of scrap to punch out some circles to add to the shaker well…OR…L = Letters.  The letters for my sentiment -“hey there”- are cut from paper using my Silhouette Cameo.

E = Elephant.  Pretty obvious, lol.  I stamped my elephant and colored him with my copics.  Isn’t he a cutie.

A = Acetate.  I will be honest, I had a hard time with this one, lol, but then I realized that the window for my shaker is a piece of acetate.

P = Pink.  Again, it’s pretty obvious that I chose pink as my focal color for this card.


I’m probably the only one in this hop that hasn’t used a frog, lol.

Up next is Amanda. Can’t wait to see what she’s been inspired to do.

Today's hop is kindly sponsored by
