Sparkle Creations 1st Anniversary Release & Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps 1st Anniversary Hop! Not only are we here to help Sparkle celebrate a year of SCRS, but we are also officially releasing 4 new SCRS images this month -- Backpack Oliver, Bookworm Ruby, Hula Lucy and Ukulele Josh.. But wait, there's more.. we are also releasing 2 new Karber Rubber Stamps -- Rainbow Leslie and Reading Millie! They are ALL available in the store now!

We have assembled an all-star lineup consisting of our Current Design Team, DT Alumni and past/present Guest Designers. If you happened here by chance and would like to start from the beginning, the hop begins at the SCRS blog -- please see the complete list below.

What's a hop without prizes? We've hidden TEN single stamp prizes along the way and one lucky winner will win the ENTIRE July release! All you need to do is leave some love at every stop along the hop.. You have until 11:59 PM EST on Sunday to leave comments for a chance to win! Winners will be announced on the SCRS blog on Monday.

For my project today, I have this cute backpack/card combo to share! I've seen lots of these cute backpacks in blogland and have always wanted to try to make one myself. Well, I did as you can see. hehe I searched the web for the template and all the ones I found were mini's. Mini's are cute but they don't hold much stuff. What to do? Well, following the mini backpack template, I enlarged this 5x7x2. It's big enough to hold this card, a couple snack size cookies/candies and so forth. The little pocket can hold a gift card.

For the card, I used the new released Backpack Oliver. This set is perfect for the beginning of the school year as well as the end.









Don't forget about the sale!!!






Good luck to all and Happy Hopping!
