Top Ten Blog Hop 2016


Thanks to the fabulous Christine Meyer for inviting me to take part in this year's Top Ten Blog Hop! I participated last year and it was a blast! Each designer posts their favorite projects from the year. This year we are hopping along blogs, Instagram and YouTube too! And I will have giveaway (OPEN TO ALL) on each of my sites, so be sure to check them all out!

Several of the layouts that made it to my Top Ten were ones I made using Scrapbook Circle kits. This one was based on a design by Scrapbook Circle owner Lisa Andrews.
I made a ton of cards this year and tried out a bunch of new techniques. This card set was created for Therm O Web and I tried my hand at resist stamping and foiling a sentiment and watercoloring on top.
Here is another Scrapbook Circle layout. I started really meal planning this year and so I decided to document several of our favorite new dishes.
Another Scrapbook Circle layout here. This one features photos from our weekend trip to Sedona.
This one is a favorite of mine because it was fun to make and it includes all Jillibean Soup products. This was the first year I was selected to be on the Jillibean Soup team. I had applied in the past and finally made it. Definitely a lesson in "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again." :)
This is a favorite planner spread and made the top ten because it is one of the spreads I made for my new class at Big Picture Classes. (This class is called Plan it Out | 12 if you're interested in checking it out!)
This is a sneak peek at all the cards I made in my first live class at Big Picture Classes this year: The Wow Factor: Taking Your Cards to the Next Level. 
This is another Scrapbook Circle layout. In this one I played with Tim Holtz Distress Crayons and I love die cutting pie charts!
Another card set! I discovered Simon Says Stamp exclusive products this year and I am in love! I also started my YouTube Channel and started creating technique videos there. This card set is one I created for YouTube.
And last, but not least, it wouldn't be 2016 without a nod to shaker cards! I made these using Therm O Web Foam and Deco Foil.
So there's my Top Ten for 2016! Do you like to look back through the year and pick your favorite projects?
Now how about that giveaway?! I have $10 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp that I will give to one person who comments on this post! Want extra entries?
