Here are the deets:
Date: August 7, 2013 starting promptly at 6AM, PST
What: A blog hop featuring 20 special guests and the Craft Dash Design Team showcasing their birthday creations. In addition, there will be a coordinating challenge for participants to link up their crafty creation(s)!
Prizes: A $50 Ellen Hutson gift certificate + a prize pack for the winning creation. Also, we have prizes for random comments left along the blog hop.
Here's what I created for the birthday festivities:
Can I tell you that having a time limit makes me craft at a snail's pace? I feel like I'm doing everything in slow motion and it feels like I also have ginormous man hands...LOL.
How do I prep for quick crafting? I go for the 'collection' card. I pulled out all of my October Afternoon Cakewalk. I also ended up using a Happy Birthday sticker by SRM.
I have serious time to spare!
I could have probably stitched the top of the banner...oh well, I wasn't going to chance going over the time!
