Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop Challenge

It's time for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  For February, the challenge was to play with scallops.  I decided to be practical this month and combine this challenge with my daughter's birthday party Saturday--so the treat bags have some scallops!  I actually made 10 of these in all, here are two of them:

Party Time!

I used  the large PTI scallop border, then flipped it over and die cut again to make the scalloped strip, then added some ribbon.  I also used the Nestabilities Big Scallop Circles to cut the center piece, and of course I had to use Tiny Treats Birthday!  Here is a close up of my daughter's bag:
I added a twine bow and we had some goody bags!  I made each one different because I had to try out as many Tiny Treats images as possible!

Stamps:  Tiny Treats Birthday (PTI)
Ink:  Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Cardstock:  Kraft, Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Patterned Paper:  American Girl (EK Success)
Accessories:  Ribbon, Twine (PTI); Copic Markers

Now my older daughter K (not the one having a birthday party tomorrow) also wanted to try the challenge:

Soaring By to Say Hi
She had so much fun making the scalloped grass!

Stamps:  Everyday Button Bits (PTI)

Thanks so much for stopping by our blog today!  I can't wait to hop and see everyone's creations (after the birthday party of course!)

Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. Super cute bags and card! Great job! ♥♥♥

  2. Very nice. I loved the decorated bags. What a neat idea .

  3. Nice way to dress up a gift bag. And tell K, her card is wonderful and to keep creating. Love the scallops for the ground below. I often wonder what we look like when balloons pass over our hills here. Maybe they look like scallops!

  4. Those gift bags are so fun! Love that scalloped grass too!

  5. cute! great work (both of you).

  6. Such cute projects! The scallops are a great festive touch on the gift bags. Your daughter did a wonderful job with the challenge! My 5 yo daughter loves to craft with me, too.
