Blitsy's Golden Scissors Blog Hop & Sneak Peeks


Hey everyone! Welcome to the Blitsy Golden Scissors Blog Hop! Each blog in this hop is giving away a pair of Golden Scissors, which means you have 13 chances to win! You definitely want a pair of the Golden Scissors because then you’ll be entered into the grand prize drawing for $1000 to spend at Blitsy or a year’s worth of craft supplies! You should have gotten to me from Morena Hockley's Blog. The next stop will be Stacey Gibbon's Blog. For a full list of everyone on the hop, please start at the beginning on Blitsy's Blog! Just leave a comment on each Blog for your entries.

Each one of the Creative Team members will be sharing special SNEAK PEEK's of the awesome products and deals this weekend beginning midnight on Black Friday! There will be new sales launching Black Friday at 12am CST, Saturday 6am CST, Sunday 6am CST, and Cyber Monday 6am CST. 


I'm so excited because I get to share with you that the Prima Marketing Creating In Faith collection by Jamie Dougherty will be available once again on Friday along with some other great deals this weekend like:

  • Prima Creating in Faith entire collection friday- Check out Esther Stamp $1.99 (reg MSRP $5)

Also, keep an eye out for great deals on these items:

  • Friday: Royal Brush Art Kits & Sets, Copic Sketch Markers, Pens, & Storage
  • Saturday: Ranger Dylusions
Get those wish lists and budgets ready - you're not going to want to miss a stop! Before you go, I want to leave you with some inspiration as I just LOVE this new Creating In Faith collection. I have not been able to put it aside since I got it. Today I have a book mark and tag for you using just some of the pieces.


This shaker bookmark was incredibly easy to create using the 3x4 Journaling Cards in the collection. I stamped this awesome C.S. Lewis quote also in the collection and colored it in with various pens. Then I created the pocket using the awesome We R Memory Keepers Fuse! I love how versatile all the products in the collection are.



For my tag, I wanted to play with the Heart & Cross mask. I pulled out some of my favorite Ranger Distress Inks and Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Acrylic paints -  particularly the color Gilt - my current obsession - the perfect gold metallic! I love how it turned out. This same technique could also be applied in your Bible journaling. I think the distress inks would work beautifully on the pages and by just adding a small splattering of the watered down acrylic paint with the Tim Holtz Splatter Brush, it shouldn't warp the pages.


I hope you enjoyed these projects today and are inspired to take a look at all the awesome deals to come. Be sure to leave your comments on each blog of the hop for your chance to win 1 of 13 Golden Scissors: I'd LOVE to hear which of the sneak peek deals I've revealed to you today you are MOST excited about! Leave your comment below to let me know.

Commenting/entries open until 7pm CST on Thanksgiving, November 26. Winners will be announced during our #blitsysleepover Pajama Party and posted on the Blitsy Blog. Now, don't forget, off you go to Stacey's Blog!

Supplies:
Prima Marketing Creating In Faith collection (3x4 Journaling Cards, Cling Stamp - Better, Mask - Heart & Cross, Cling Stamp - Bible Book)
We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool
Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Dina Wakley Media Heavy Body Acrylic (White, Gild)

Beautiful project. Love the faith based stamps. They went FAST after a live broadcast. Those girls worked fast! Your shaker is too cool, using the fuse tool is perfect. I bought one from Blitsy, and now my gadget loving Daddy has it :-(. It's all cool cuz I'm going to use some of the money I was going to give him for Christmas to buy me another.....LOL. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
