Crafter's Companion Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Crafter's Companion
Scavenger Hunt Blog Hop!!

I'm so happy you hopped by today!!  Before we get started I wanted to share the project I made for you today.  I really love the Stamp It Australia line of stamps.  I pulled out the Bird Cage (by Yi Hua Law) Stamp and stamped it out twice on some cream colored Pearlescent  paper.  I fussy cut one of the images out and then layered it over the other stamped image for some added dimension.  I love this paper from Graphic 45.  It is just really rich looking and goes perfectly with the pearlescent paper I chose to use.  I typed up my sentiment in Word and printed it out on the pearlescent paper and then die but it out.  I added a little bird and some ribbon from my stash and it was all done!  I hope you like it.
Now let's get you started on the Scavenger Hunt!  There are 12 design team members and each of us has a question that will give you clues to 12 different items that you can find in the Crafter's Companion Store. 
So your goal is to hop around to all 12 blogs and get all 12 questions and then hop over to the Crafter's Companion Store to find the answers.  After you have found the answers you will then put them in an email to Bindy at  Please put CC Blog Hop in the subject line of your email.
If you do that and follow the other requirements which I will tell you in a minute you will be entered into the drawing to win the Grand Prize which is the entire Peter the Rabbit Collection of Stamp Sets!!  This will add up to 9 (!) awesome stamp sets! 

Along the way each designer will have a project to inspire you and also the possibility to win on their individual blogs too!!  Each designer is giving away a Cute Companions -Romance stamp set, two embossing powders (one white and one blush rose) and one sheet of EZ mount foam! 

This blog hop will run from Friday, April 20th at midnight and end at midnight PST on Sunday, April 22nd. Winners will be announced on the Crafter's Companion Informational blog on Tuesday April 24th.  (Blog Hop is open to US Residents Only.)
