21st Birthday Blog Hop - Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of Ashley's 21st Birthday Blog Hop!

We are so glad you could join us! If you're looking to start at the beginning of the hop, you're in the right place!

This weekend we are celebrating my 21st birthday (which is today, the 7th!) with some fun and creative, birthday/alcohol-themed projects! It's not 21 without a drink or two, right?! And what better way to celebrate than with a blog hop with all my crafty friends?! :)

For my first project (I'll be sharing another tomorrow) I created a not-so-birthday-themed card, but had to pull in some alcohol somewhere during this hop!


The stamp is called "Wine & Friends" and is from Unity Stamp Co., who happens to be one of our sponsors! I colored it with Copics R56, R59, R83, R85, E35, and T0 and added glossy accents to the wine glasses to make them shine. 


Papers are from the My Mind's Eye "Blush" 6x6 collection and I embellished with crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam and pearls from Miriam's Crafting Supplies. (Hint: Those may be some of our sponsors!)

We have 21 fabulous sponsors providing 21 fabulous prizes for those who hop with us, and because there are so many of them, we have included all the prize information in the second stop of the lineup.

To be eligible to win, you must...
- Leave a comment on EVERY stop of BOTH days of the hop 

I am also having a GIVEAWAY! Check out the post for more details on how you can win - the winner will be announced the same day as the hop winners!

Winners will be randomly chosen and announced on Friday March 14th at Made Especially For You.

Your next stop is to check out the Hop Prizes!

Here's the complete lineup in case you get lost along the way...

  22. I love the black ribbon and brads to break up the burgandy. The kraft card base and mat are perfect (representing the cork color) and I especially love the use of glossy accents on the glasses. I can't wait to see what the others have created! 21 sponsors??? How awesome is that? Hope you have a great year!
