Hello, Kraftie Friends!

We're excited to welcome you to the very first joint blog hop with EyeConnect Crafts and Rubber Dance Stamps!

Erin Sparler of EyeConnect Crafts (USA) and Bibi Lindahl of Rubber Dance Stamps (Norway) met online in the fall of 2015. They quickly hit it off and discovered that they had a LOT in common, or as Erin so eloquently put it: "There is no word for old friends who have just met!".

The Design Teams have been generously supplied with chipboards from EyeConnect Crafts and rubber stamps from Rubber Dance Stamps and we are all thrilled to show you the results with this joint Blog Hop. 

What's in it for you?
Glad you asked!
One lucky winner will receive a Gift Certificate worth $25 from BOTH EyeConnect Crafts AND Rubber Dance to spend on their websites!
Another lucky winner will receive a surprise gift from BOTH 
Erin and Bibi, with $25 worth of products from their two companies!

What do you have to do?
Not much!
1. Visit all the blog posts in the hop and leave a comment.
2. Become a follower of the EyeConnect Crafts and Rubber Dance Stamps blogs. 
That's it! And who knows... maybe YOU will tie new bonds of friendships across the globe, too! :-) 

You have until Valentine's Day, Sunday the 14th at midnight EST (New York time), which is 6 am Monday 15th for those of you on Central European Time (Amsterdam, Berlin, Oslo), and 5 am if you live in the UK. You can find a time converter here.
Winners will be announced 18th February

Enjoy the hop and good luck!

Here is what I made with chipboards from EyeConnect Crafts and stamps from Rubber Dance

I inked the edges of patterned paper and splattered All-Purpose Ink Poppy Red:


Apply adhesive (I used liquid glue) on Lace-Up: Celebration, Flags (EyeConnect Crafts) and sprinkle red glitter. Press down, tap off excess and let dry. My flags are white because I primed them for another project, but you don't have to do it. Just leave it plain, unless you want white edges on the flags:


I stamped 2 hearts (I Heart Art - Rubber Danceand heat embossed them in red. Add more stamping. Stamp "always and forever" on kraft paper. Cut them out, back them with white cardstock and adhere them on card:


Weave lace trim through the flags and adhere them with foam tape for some dimension. Finally, cut out the letters (I used my ScanNCut machine) - or use stickers - and adhere them on flags:


If you're wondering, Jazz was my Shetland Sheepdog, who I had to let go over the rainbow bridge on Feb 2nd...he was 11 years-old...here's a collage with some of his photos:
