September 2010 Papertrey Blog Hop

September Papertrey Blog Hop Challenge is about
"show off skills that you learned from a fellow stamper"


One skill I learned from the Papertrey Ink Designer Betsy Veldman is to make the tissue paper flower

I love making them and had made tons of them, thanks Betsy for sharing the skill.



I am so sad to see everyone using their new released stamp set and I haven't got mine this time, usually it arrived in time for me to use them for blog hop but they are still not here till today even I placed on order on the release night, so sad............ I just hope that they are not lost in the mail. : (


The other handmade flower I learn from the internet is the roll flowers here, this is my second try on this, I am still practicing to make it perfect!

Very pretty Kirsty! I do love Betsy's flowers too. I like how you added a top layer to yours as well.
That really stinks that you didn't get yours in time. I got mine a week ago and I ordered on release night. They might have gotten lost. Send them an email. You still made a beautiful card with or without your new stamps. :)
