Hello and welcome!
Today/this week a group of crafters and I are hosting the Year in Review blog hop where we
share our favorite creations of 2022 and I hope you will join us too, either
by leaving a comment or by linking up your own "year in review" post - or both! The
linky tool will remain open for 1 week, so even if you didn't sign up to be a
co-host, you can still share with us during this week.
I am giving away a prize to one lucky commenter too, and it's possible that
there are more giveaways along the way so hopefully you will hop along and
leave the other co-hosts some love. The prize winner will be selected from
those leaving a comment.
I always have a hard time selecting favorites so to make it easier on myself I select a
favorite from each month. I did list the stamps used in case anyone is
interested and you can click on the link above each card to see the original
post for more info.
... this was a tough choice but I settled on this card:
Stamps Used: PSX G2891
Bird Stamp (retired),
(Lavinia), Hero Arts
Sentiment (from retired stamp kit)
Stamps Used: Mo Manning
, Whimsy Stamps Sentiment (retired)
It was fun scrolling through the blog posts to look back at what I
created. I've really enjoyed playing with inks and stencils this
past year and I am still working on getting better at scenic cards
as I love them so much but I never quite know where to begin with
But looking at these cards I can see that I failed (again) with my crafty New Year's resolution of 2022 of using up more patterned papers. I barely used any. Maybe I'll try again in the new year :)
If you are a paper crafter and would like to join in with your own
year in review type post, please feel free to link up with us too!
The linky tool will remain open until January 5th.

Lovely to see your favourite work from the year. I can't remember seeing January before! or I've forgotten! I do love that and the tulip one which I definitely remember.ReplyDelete
You set us a really tough task Ellie, never realised it would be so hard. Lovely to see some favourites again and thank you so much for organising it.ReplyDelete
A beautiful variety of awesome cards!! I love too how you added the links of the supplies used, now that was cleverly thoughtful!! Thanks for putting this together, I think it's a whole LOT of fun!!ReplyDelete
Ellie, I don't know how you narrowed down any of your cards because each one is a work of art! However, putting a few of your favorites in one post surely helps us to appreciate them one more time! I really love your use of stencils and inking the edges - two things I would love to get better at. Thank you SO much for organizing this wonderful hop! I wish nothing but the best for you and your family in the coming year! HugsReplyDelete
A fabulous selection of cards and a beautiful variety of designs too.ReplyDelete
I think you do a wonderful job creating scenes! I hardly ever combine more than one stamped image on a card and wouldn't even know how to begin with that. Thank you so much for organizing this-- it was so much fun to look through each person's creations and see their individual styles shining through.ReplyDelete
What a great selection of cards. I am very pleased to be taking part this year xxReplyDelete
