IMAGINE Crafts, Authentique and May Arts Blog hop!!

AP_MayArts_Badge Welcome to a crafting extravaganza all week here on the IMAGINE Crafts Blog, where we’re excited to share with you amazing projects everyday created by our own Artists In Residence along with the Design Team Members of Authentique Paper and May Arts Ribbon.  

Today I've created a scrapbook page for you!! I have used the beautiful  RADIANT collection from Authentique, 4 different ribbons/twines from May Arts, and some Memento inks and irRESISTible spray from IMAGINE Crafts!! I have even created a 'start to finish" video for you, showing you exactly how I created it!!

Now, sit back, relax and watch as I show you exactly how I created this!! It's easier than you think!! (full list of supplies used is found at the end of this blog post)

Here are today’s featured projects from our otherArtists In Residence:

There' more inspiration to be found on the Authentique Paper and May Arts blogs! Simply visit these blogs to view the projects created by those company's design teams and to view the other prizes available.


Prizes galore for participating in the Blog Hop this week!

All three participating companies in this week's Blog Hop will all be giving away 3 prize packages for leaving comments on the featured blog posts. Each day will we feature projects created by the artists from IMAGINE Crafts, Authentique Paper and May Arts. Simply visit their blogs and leave a comment on each post by midnight PST September 27th. We ‘ll randomly select three different blogs from the seven days, then randomly draw one commenter from each blog as the winner.
Blog Hop Hint – if you click on a link that takes you to a page saying something like, “Sorry this page cannot be found,” just click on the header at the top of the blog (usually a picture, or the blog’s name), and it will take you to that blog’s most recent post. That post *should* be our hop. If not, you can probably scroll down a short way to find the hop post.

A HUGE thank you to Authentique and May Arts for your sponsoring of the Design Team as well as providing prizes for your winners! You guys are awesome!!!
