  1. Fantastic hop - loved everyone's creations - no way I can pick any favs LOL!!!

  2. What a great way to spend the morning - with all of YOU. Each project - or multiples of projects - were really INTERESTING and FUN. Like Sharon - I really loved each and every project. It's hard to pick any one favorite but I will at least tell you which ones appealed to "me" the most and why.

    Irit - totally made me chuckle out loud. Seriously the cutest skeleton EVER and such a great use of the skull stamp. Love the sentiment of the project very much.

    Jenn - just so elegant - so "high end" looking. Really lovely. People who don't really care for sugar skulls would be open to this type of decor!

    Adam - I love the contemporary, 'tailored', look with the perfectly coordinating colors. Very well designed from top to bottom.

    Granne - Wonderfully done. Lots of stamping to create such depth and colorful delight. I love that the skulls were not white and that they were piled on top of each other in such an intricate way.

    BUT - seriously - each creation was a TREAT to SEE. Thank you - ALL of you. Xj.

  3. Sorry but I can't tell you my favourite as they were all fab! Good fun

  4. Can't wait to see the rest of the hop!

  5. Can't wait to continue on to see the rest. Love the sugar skulls

  6. Loved hopping through! VERY hard to choose a favourite however as each creation has something merits. As I was hopping though - it was 'oooh I like this' - but then I moved onto the next and it was the same...
    However I did like Granne's Skulls, Kim and Shilpa's backgrounds, Monique's clay and to grin with Sharon.

  7. Fantastic work by our ladies in are all very talented and the
    different ideas is amazing.... i will certainly keep an eye on all the blogs....well done ladies...xx

  8. Some great ideas and ways of using the stamp sheet "out there", and since I shouldn't vote for my own "children", Michelle and Kim's got me keen. Michelle for such an effective use of tissue paper, and Kim for having the patience to wait for the texture paste to get to stampable consistency.

  9. Fabulous Blog Hop... Y'all had some beautiful and creative projects! I can NOT possibly just pick one!!! I really enjoyed all of your talents!!! Thank You for bringing joy to my day!!!

  10. This blog hop was phenomenal! Everyone used my sugar skull stamps in ways I had not dreamed of....I'm blown away and truly inspired!

  11. Fab projects everyone. I particularly liked Jenn's candles. Very appropriate to the celebration. Also Anne's skulls on sticks and right once in a lifetime watch were fun and wonderful. Hugz

  12. I enjoyed looking at all the projects the team made many different creations from one set and its so difficult to choose one but I think I will go for ADAM creation simple but very nice.... :) Hugs for everyone Agnes

  13. I love Michelle Frae Cummings's faux stained glass because she used tissue paper and colored it. I love Jenn Gary DuBell's candles and how she used foam to add dimension to the flowers. I love how Kim Johnny and her upcycled canvas using a plaque from the dollar store. I love Anne's Marottes and Chris's Dia De Los Muertos Sign. Part of the reason I picked these as my favorites is because I have been wanting to have a Dia De Los Muertos party and I think some of these ideas would work well as decorations or crafts to make at the party. My favorite blogs are ones that list out each step with pictures on how they made their creatuion.

  14. I really enjoyed looking at everyone's work, all very very talented crafty peeps 😁 I hate to choose one single person as my fave as you're all amazing...really interesting to see all the different looks you can achieve with one set of stamps x

  16. Super creative bunch of designers...I liked Kim's idea of stamping into texture past and the beautiful colors. I also like the simplicity & colors of Adam's card. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. So I am back :) uff ... and I can say that everybody made a wonderful, great and individal work. All projects are amazing!

      I have view personally favourits (one alone is for me not to choose!)
      and I would like choose the best ideas and the handcraft projects.

      - the best handcrafts projects are in my opinion:
      so: Irit Shalom - because of the idea and the message ... the skull is great and the details in the background are amazing!

      so: Kim for the great plastical effect and the for me the perfect color balance - magic project

      so: Michelle Frae Cummings and the fantastic project and great idea. Her work is beautiful!

      - best ideas are for me:
      so: Anne´s wonderful skull dolls, the open gravestone (with beauty darkness touch) & the wristband ... the technique to stamp on materials is fantastic as well as great

      so: Jenn DuBell and the candles - the effect is great and the skulls are there wonderful

      Secret tip is for me also Adam :) the skull has there the best expression and impact :).

      Hugs Senna
