Today's The Day For The Prima Doll Hop

 
WOW!  Have you seen the Prima Julie Nutting Mixed Media Doll stamps?  They are ADORABLE! 
A few of us are having so much fun with them that we’ve decided to put together a 4 Part HOP and the rules are very simple.  Each Tuesday throughout the month of August we will be sharing creations made with a variety of these fabulous stamps to inspire you.  All you will need to do is HOP to each of our blogs each Tuesday in August and leave us a comment.  Be sure to include your email address because on August 30th we will EACH BE GIVING AWAY A PRIZE.  We will be sharing what our individual prize packages are on our blogs.  REMEMBER … you will need to comment EACH TUESDAY to qualify for the prize!  AND … if you share our hop info on your blog, your name will go in twice towards the prize.  WAIT THERE’S MORE!  If you become a follower/subscriber you get a THIRD CHANCE!!
So what do you say?  Ready for some fun??
 
Welcome to my blog and very first week of our 4 week hop!!
For our first week, we are doing "Spring".....
did you ever play paper dolls when you were little??
Remember all the fun you had dressing them??
Well, these dolls are just as much fun....
so addicting finding "just the right" paper for their clothes!!
 
So addicting, that I had to do not one, but two dolls...
My first doll uses the paper from the gorgeous Graphic 45
Secret Garden line.....
 
 
she has such a "secret garden" that the only way to get in
is with a key....
see her little key around her neck?
 
 
And how about that banner at the bottom...love??
 
 
I stamped her dress 3 times to get the layered look and pockets
I wanted..just so I could give her a spade...
Her seed packet has a tag that pulls out
to add something personal to....
 
 
My second girlie is a bit more "funky".....
 
 
 
check out those striped tights she has on
and her glittery sparkle shoes!!
 
She is mostly made from my scrap bin!!
Here is your hop lineup.....
 
Nellies Nest (that's me)
 
Don't forget to read the rules, leave comments, hop along
and you could win this from me.....
 
 
Thanks and see you next Tuesday!!!

So creative! The wonderful details on the G45 paper doll are amazing. I love the flower trim on her hemline and shoes. The key, garden tool and seed packet are fun embellishments.

This is a totally fun hop and I am enjoying seeing all the Prima paper dolls dressed for Spring. Your little Secret Garden Gal is very sweet with her key and pockets and garden theme. The next doll had me at glittery sparkling shoes. Fabulous. Thank you very much. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...

Diane so good to get back to see what you are doing. I just loved playing with paper dolls as a little girl and I guess she still is inside trying to get out. You have really made them pop. It was great seeing you again a few weeks ago. I'll be looking forward to next Tue.
