Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop



Hello, there!
Welcome to my stop in the Young Crafters Unite blog hop!
I'm Christy, and at the ripe old age of 34, 
I don't know if I necessarily qualify as "young."
But having only stumbled upon the wonderful world 
of papercrafting about a year and a half ago,
I definitely consider myself a "young crafter" in terms of experience.
And besides, I think what we all love about papercrafting
is that it takes us back to memories of our childhood,
when we felt free to let our imagination loose on paper,
and took great pride and pleasure in doing so.
So in that sense, we're all "young crafters," aren't we?

The theme of this hop is "our favorite things,"
and while I have room in my heart for many 
different types of crafting supplies, ;o)
I've tried to showcase a few extra-special ones here.


As a writer, I love, love, love text prints.
As a mom of three boys, also I love any excuse 
to break out the girly patterns and colors, 
like these gorgeous papers from The Girl's Paperie.
And I also threw in a new favorite item:
Cosmo Cricket's Glubers.

I used their 2" gluber with fabric scraps torn into strips 
to create the floral embellishment you see here,
adding some hand-trimmed fabric leaves to the underside.
And no "favorite things" card could be complete
without a stamp from my favorite company: Lawn Fawn.
I stamped "thinking of you" from Sophie's Sentiments 
in my favorite Jenni Bowlin Spice Tin ink.

And now it's time to continue the hop,
over to the AMAZINGLY talented Jill Foster's blog.
This lady is such an inspiration!
You'll see what I mean when you get there.

If, for any reason, you lose your way or need to 
return back to the beginning of the hop, you can do so 
which will redirect you to the main page,
where you will find the complete list of participating blogs,
and also find out how you can win some great prizes.

I hope you've enjoyed your journey so far.
Thank you so much for stopping by!

  45. Christy, I can't believe you've only been crafting for less than two years! I would have assumed you've been doing it for much longer. :) Those glubers are definitely awesome, and I love the flower you've made. I'm going to need to pull those out and use them again sometime soon! Thank you so much for joining us on the Young Crafters Unite blog hop!
