Create a Smile Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Create A Smile First Release Blog Hop!

I'm so thrilled to be Guest Hopper!

Create a Smile is a new stamp company in town, located in Germany!   When Christine Drogt started illustrating and sharing images with friends, it soon became crystal-clear that those images would make awesome clear stamps. Because Christine has always loved to make people smile (it can be as easy as smiling at strangers!) the name was found quickly (thanks to her friend Alison!) and the vision became reality.

Create A Smile stamps are made of high quality photo-polymer and produced in Germany. They will for sure make you smile!

We’re thrilled you are joining us as we begin this great adventure! We truly love the fantastic paper-crafting community (YOU!) and are so excited to be bringing something new to you all!

These are the facts:

Create A Smile is releasing their first two stamp sets TODAY!! You can find their store at www.createasmilestamps.com 

There are TWO fun sets filled with super cute images, available for purchase.

You can win a $15 gift-certificate for the store-- all you need to do is hop along and leave comments on all the fantastic and inspiring stops (one comment per person, per blog please!). 

We’ll pick random winner from all the comments - so the more blogs you visit (and leave a comment on) - the more chances you have to be a winner!

You have until Saturday (July 12th) 8am CET - that's 2am EST. The winner will be announced on the Create A Smile Blog on Sunday (July 13th)

You should have arrived here from the wonderful Christine Drogt's blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Create a Smile Blog!  In case you get lost along the way, here's a listing:


Want a peek at the new sets?





I decided to play with that SWEET fox...here's how I was inspired:

cardstock:  pti  stamps:  Create a Smile/digital/Friends in the Woods ink:  various copics  other: we r memory keepers/simply happy journal card

There is something about woodland creatures...they get me everytime.  

I gave her sweet pink cheeks and if you look real close....

I covered her nose with Glossy Accents:


Wishin' Christine a big High Five for starting her own company and putting together a spectacular design team!

I truly am inspired by this Paper Crafting Community and I'm so happy to be a part of it.

Okay, now hippety hop over to
