March Studio AE from Technique Tuesday Blog Hop (Giveaway Closed)

Welcome to the March Studio AE blog hop!  I'm happy to be joining the Technique Tuesday team as a guest this month.  I know we're all excited about this month's Studio AE set, "Beauty of Spring," by Ali Edwards.
The sentiments in this set are perfect for springtime projects!
I had fun playing with spring colors that had been kicked up a notch here.  Not only did I repeat those colors on the layout, but I also repeated the stamped message.  I began by stamping the center of the piece of patterned paper with the full sentiment.  Then I carefully trimmed the word "Spring" from the stamp and continued to repeat the word, alternating the ink colors.

You will love what everyone else has done with these stamps. Be sure to check out the other blogs on the blog hop, if you haven't yet.  Here's the order:

Ali
Jill (you're here now)
Daniela
Laura
Nichol
Sharyn
Teri
Jaime

Since we ALL love reading comments, two lucky winners will be drawn at random from all of the comments on all of the blogs in the blog hop.  The first winner will score Technique Tuesday's "Big Wish" stamp set, and the second winner will score the new "Sassy Cat" stamp set.  While you aren't required to leave comments on all of the blogs in order to win, keep in mind that the more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win.  All comments must be made by midnight PST on March 13, and winners will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on March 14, so be sure to visit the blog to see if you are one of the lucky winners!


ETA:  The winners have been posted on the Technique Tuesday blog.

Thanks for stopping by today!
