PBD April Release Blog Hop


Did you come here from Rebekah's blog? If not you're going to want to click here to start the hop - trust me, you don't want to miss a single stop!

Welcome to the Pink by Design April Release Blog Hop! We are glad you are joining us, to see all of the fun, new stamps that are coming out! Besides all the yummy projects, there is also some YUMMY blog candy- that you don't want to miss!


The grand prize is a Big Shot! The Big Shot is PERFECT for the new Pink by Design Dies in this release!

All you have to do to be entered for the Big Shot is leave comments on any blogs on the hop. For each comment, you will get an entry. You can also share the Stamp Release on your own blog, Facebook or Pinterest- and leave a comment telling us you did so. You can really rack up the entries this way! :)


As a bonus, I am also giving away a mini kit of goodies to one commentor! There is some good stuff from Crate, MME, Smash, Cosmo Cricket and more! All I ask is that become a follower of my blog if you aren't already.

Okay, now that we have your attention, this release I am showcasing the gorgeous new Map Background! Lots of layers on this one and perfect whether you like a vintage or modern style!


I really tried to go vintage with this layout but I can never go there completely for some reason! Sigh. To give the map a bit of a realistic look, I stamped it with Antiquing Dye Ink onto a thin paper bag, darkened the edges to give that old paper look, crumpled it up and then taped it down.


It's a great background for any travel themed project! The sentiment is from Subway Art.

You can find all the new releases in the Pink by Design store right now and don't forget to check out the new clearance section to get a few oldies before they are gone forever!


Ustream chat is tonight at 9pm CST.

Okay and that's all the info I have! Next stamp on the hop is the super sweet and talented Anna.

I love the idea of stamping the map on to a paper bag! I can see a bunch of them being stamped onto paper bags then distressing them a little, then rolling them up tie them with twine and Hello Pirate theme scavenger hunt party theme for a boys b-day! Wait I think I just came up with a theme for my kids b-day! Lol thank you!
