Simon Says Stamp Early Spring Release Blog Hop! ...including PRIZES!

Hi everyone! 

I'm excited to be part of the Simon Says Stamp Early Spring Release Blog Hop today! Simon Says Stamp has just come out with some wonderfully unique and fun stamps and dies. With 14 designers and all of these great products, I can’t wait to see what everyone shares on today’s hop.

Here are the links to all the great new Simon Says Stamp exclusive products in the store:


Lots of eye candy, right? What are your favourites? I can't wait to play with the Perfect Bow Die and the Full Card Bubble Die. The Friendship Circles and Fit to be Square stamp/die sets are just TOO CUTE! I can't wait to get my hands on all these great products and start creating. Unfortunately, I think the staff of Canada Customs or Canada Post knew what was inside my package from Simon Says Stamp and they decided to play with everything before sending it all my way. ;) Fortunately, I do already have the Square Sayings stamp set and was able to come up with a couple of cards using it. Yay! :)


Links to supplies used to make these cards:


I'll be sure to show you more of what I make once my package shows up and I'm able to create some of the things I had planned for the hop. My daughter was hoping to be my model again for this hop and so I'll just have to take her up on that offer with one of my projects. ;) 

And now for the giveaway part! Leave a comment on this blog post and one lucky winner from my blog will receive a Simon Says Stamp Goodie Bag! We will randomly draw a winner at 9:00 AM EST on Wednesday 4/3/13 so be sure to leave your comment by then. (And be sure to comment on each designer's blog for 14 chances to win)!

You should have arrived from the blog of the super talented Nichol Magouirk. The next stop in the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Spring 2013 Blog Hop is the amazing Lisa Spangler. If you encounter a broken link or to start at the beginning of the blog hop please go to the Simon Says Stamp blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
