Fiskateers Spring Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hi bloggers!  Welcome to the next blog on your Fiskateers Spring Blog Hop.  If you came from Tara at Pages in Time you are right on track.  You can find a complete list of blog stops along the hop on Kellystar's blog. 

You may know by now or guess as you hit up all the awesome blogs that a Fiskateer is a crafter that is part of an awesome community that is under the direction of Fiskars....best known for their brilliant orange handle scissors.  The more you hop the more you learn about Fiskateers

Spring is time for love, engagements, wedding planning, etc.  I crafted a "first thoughts" book.  In my experience often the first thought is the most creative, honest, clear thought.  Every bride-to-be needs a book of first thoughts.  It's a place to put down those first thoughts about your fiancee when you see him in a hat, first thoughts about a wedding gown, first thoughts of the incredible sunrise...first thoughts.

The paper collection is from Graphic 45's Le' Romantique.  

Fiskars Tools

Micro-tip scissors...don't leave home without them!
Fiskars/Jenni Bowlin Jester Border punch

 Circle Cutter
Circle Border punch
Embossing plate
If you love using dollies using Fiskars circle border punches are an awesome way to create you own.  I used my Circle Cutter to make my 8 inch circle, my border punch to create the decorative edge, and then I used the embossing plate to run the dolillie through my Cuttlebug.  I used the A and C plate with the foam embossing mat.  You can check out my YouTube channel for "how to" segments for the circle border punch  and circle cutter. 

Humming Along Squeeze punch
Paper Trimmer
Self-Healing Mat


Giveaway

I have one Fiskars Special Edition Jenni Bowlin  Main Street border punch to giveaway.  All you have to do is leave a comment.  That's it.  I'll draw a name via Random.org at the end of the hop and post the winner's name here on Monday.  For those who have difficulties leaving a comment send me an email at dspaperstudio@aol.com with your comment and I'll add your name to the drawing.  Good Luck!
