YNS Birthday Blog Hop!!!!


Welcome to our YNS Birthday Blog Hop!!!! 

We’re celebrating our 3rd Anniversary this month and we are so excited to have you celebrating along with us!!! 

We’ve added 11 new stamps to the YNS collection and all the new releases are available to purchase today over at the YNS Store! Speaking of the store…have you noticed the recent upgrades? I hope LOVE all the new features like larger thumbnails and more items per page! 

We are making this hop even more fun, because we have put together a scavenger hunt!  

Each DT member and guest has a bold, colored letter on her blog.  Collect all the letters and unscramble them to find the special saying.  

Once you do that, e-mail Karen at karen@yournextstamp.com and you will qualify for the GRAND PRIZE!!!  

We also have 3 special new release prize packs hidden along the hop.  Just leave comments along the way to win!  

You have until August 9th at 12 midnight EST to play along and the winners will be announced August 10th on the YNS Blog!

Ok I did say this was a hop and I’m the last stop along the hop so if you arrived here from the fabulous Susan Lile’s blog carry on but if not you’ll definitely want to start from the beginning!

Your first stop is the talented Peggy Toole! If you get lost along the way or there is a break in the hop I have the list of all the participants at the bottom of this post.

I’ve got a few projects for you today featuring some of our adorable YNS stamps! 

First up is a card I made featuring Big Present for You which I thought was perfect for our birthday celebration! I also used the CrissCross Border Die and some yummy Divine Twine

Next up is a super sweet card I made featuring Yummy Jam! I LOVE this stamp set and that sentiment is so cute and so true! Also it’s perfect for my favorite Kaleidacolor ink pads. I love the multicolored effect!!!

My layout was inspired by this card designed by Jen del Muro. So CUTE!

See those yummy YNS Glittered Skittles at the bottom? Gotta love those little bits of bling!

I hope you enjoyed my hop projects!!!

I truly appreciate all of your support and love for YNS! I wrote a personal message to all of you on my blog the other day…click this link if you’d like to read it.

Today my gift to you is a special store discount (25% off Aug 6-10, your online code is HAPPY) and a special gift with every purchase while supplies last. It’s a super fun scratch ticket and every card is a WINNER!!!

Here is my special hop letter for the scavenger hunt….

My letter is R

Remember to leave me a comment and I’ll be watching out for your email containing your unscrambled scavenger hunt message! FUN!

Thank you so much for joining us!!!!

Have a fun and creative day!
