Scrapbook Steals June Blog Hop (Giveaway)

Hi friends!  I hope you are doing well!  I'm still sick as all get out but what can you do?

Ok, today I have a FUN FUN treat for you all!  I was invited to be a part of the Scrapbook Steals June Blog Hop!  You know that I'm a frugal girl so I love shopping Scrapbook Steals for my scrapbooking supplies!  The blog hop starts on the Scrapbook Steals Blog.  If you are coming from Maya's blog, you're in the right place!  Don't forget to leave comments on each stop because you could WIN a $20 gift certificate to Scrapbook Steals!  I wish I could win!!

The steal I got to work with is some gorgeous American Crafts Glitter Tape.  This stuff is SO fabulous!  It's VERY sticky on the back and the glitter doesn't have a lot of fall out.  I'm very impressed with this product and I'll probably be buying more today!

Here's my project for today.  I thought these tapes would look fabulous on a vase.  After all, who doesn't love a little glitter in their decor?  I also wanted to make a matching card.  The tape stuck right to the glass, no priming or extra adhesive needed.  Also, I messed up a couple times and I was able to pull the tape up and reposition it with no problems.  It has NOT budged!
Here's a picture of just the vase.  The flowers are just from my garden.
And here's the card I made to go with the vase.  I wanted the tape to be more random than it actually ended up being but I couldn't force myself to not use a pattern.  Sigh... OCD gets the best of me!  The sentiment is from My Thoughts Exactly Big Thoughts.  

Alright, here's the order for the REST of the hop:
Miriam Prantner (go here next!)

Have a great day and don't forget to leave comments for your chance to win the $20 gift certificate!  The hop closes on Sunday June 10th at 11:59 mountain time.
