Welcome to the Toadally Frogs Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Toadally Frogs Blog Hop! We have Toadally amazing crafters hopping along...and we hope to give the Easter Bunny a leap for his money! You should have come from Gina's blog---and wasn't that a fun place to visit? If you just happened to find us. and want to join in the fun, hop on back to Karelj's Blog at http://www.kareljcreations.com/  to begin at the beginning.  The inspiration for these Froggy Tags came from another blog that did tags in the shape of butterflies and decorated so beautifully.  I tried to find the blog to give credit here, but I could not find it.  So if it was your blog, please leave a comment with your address.  Thanks for your inspiration!



 

 
 
  

To celebrate the Toadally Awesome Frog Blog Hop, I made 6 Frog Tags.  I used the Create A Critter cart set at 4" and used the Life's Journey paper from K & Company.  I really love this paper pak because it is double sided and is beautiful.  To decorate the Frog Tags, I used some ribbon, silk flowers, buttons, lace and adhesive backed pearls.  Dark blue and white yarn was used to hang the tags.


 


 The next project is a 4 sided card that was inspired by an Easter card from Anna, my exchange student from Denmark.  It was such a beautiful card that was 3 dimensional.  I have made a card with this technique, so it was just deciding what to use to make it.  The Frog was cut out 4 times at 3 inches from the Create a Critter cart. and a Frame was cut 4 times at 5 inches from the Cindy Loo cart.  The paper for this project was also Life's Journey from K & Company.  Each Frog and Frame was scored in the middle and adhered to each other to form a 3 dimensional frog and frame.  String was adhered in the center of the Frog and attached to the Frame so that the Frog was suspended in the open space of the Frame.

I do have some blog candy to Thank you for stopping by.  To qualify, please leave a comment and a way to contact you.  The blog candy includes a stamp set, a paper pack and the Froggy Tags and Frog Card made for this blog hop.



Now that you have seen my blog, you should jump on over to Rebecca's blog, http://www.creationswithbecka.blogspot.com/   Her project is so toadally fun---I know you are going to
