Valentine's Collage Card + Giveaway
-Celebrating Got Joy Creations Blog Hop-

January 18, 2016

Today I'm part of an awesome celebration. So glad you're joining the fun too! Welcome to the Got Joy Creations blog hop.  Dana has some very exciting news to share. She started her Youtube channel a little over a year ago and she has reached 1,000 followers! We are so happy to be able to celebrate with her. Along the hop today, you will see some amazing projects all featuring a touch of gold.  It could be ribbon, glitter, embossing powder or even sequins. Here is my take for today...



One of my favorite gold products lately is foil. If you follow me you might have noticed it (lol). I decided to go for a vintage / shabby chic free style collage card. It is certainly a more modern take on shabby chic, but I do love all the elements together. The little cupid was die cut from Deco Foil double sided foam adhesive to which you just have to add the foil directly, no heat required (view the tutorial here). There's another hint of gold hidden behind the tags, banners and other elements, a strip of embossed gold paper. Hope you find this idea fun and useful!

So let's get hopping! Some of Dana's friends have come together to celebrate her accomplishment!
These ladies are so talented... I know you'll love every stop on the hop.




And what's a hop without prizes?  Dana is spreading the JOY with her followers. You have until midnight EST January 22 to leave some love for everyone. Here's what's up for grabs.
