Occasions Mini Blog TOUR 2 STOP 1
We are so glad you have decided to join us for this fun filled tour. Do we ever have a treat for you! There are 19 stops featuring beautiful projects created with items from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions Mini Catalog.
Before we get started we need to go over a few details.
1. There are 19 stops on the tour. All of the stops will be active today only. The tour ends at midnight.
2. Post a comment with your favorite of the four projects and why. Leave your name and email address. Each comment will be numbered and a $20.00 gift certificate for Stampin’ Up! product will be given to the winner.
3. Complete the entire tour and email me with a list of each site name and your favorite project of the day. Each correct entry will be numbered and the winner receives my first kit free.
I’m sure you will have a great time. Finishing the tour in one sitting is not required. You have the entire day to view the links. Hope you have fun playing along with us.

My featured technique this month was watercoloring with the Aqua Painter brush. It is easy to use and loads of fun. I have been learning right alongside my wonderful stamping friends. I don’t know who taught who this month. Can you tell I am still learning?
The second project features the cracked glass technique. This technique is one of my favorites. It requires a little extra time, but so worth the effort. I created several of these for Anniversary cards this month. The card follows the MOJO Monday Sketch # 83. Hope you enjoy!
