LPS Preview - {Behind the Scenes} HOP!

Hello and welcome to our first day of sneak peeks for the {Little Paper Shop} April release! We have a lot going on for the next few days as we are celebrating our two year anniversary this month. YES, {Little Paper Shop} is now 2 years old. Woohoo!! You have made this such a fun two years for us and we are so happy to be celebrating this time with you. We are going to be having lots of fun stuff going on so make sure and tune in every day, now through Tuesday -- release day. EACH DAY we will have a BLOG HOP with a chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the {Little Paper Shop}!! Read on to find out how YOU can enter to win!


I just KNOW that everyone out there loves winning new stamps, right? Want to win even more? Since this is our 2-Year Birthday Celebration, we will be doing something special this month on release day. One person who participates in the special Birthday Challenge on Tuesday, April 20th will win a $35 Gift Certificate (WOW!!) to the LPS store. More details on that challenge as closer to the release.

Today we are previewing a new set called BEHIND THE SCENES. This is a set of three large background stamps featuring extremely versatile patterns. Here is my project - clean and simple for today, a quick but elegant card. There are those out there who would be so proud of me for embracing the white space (you know who you are!). I let the image speak for itself and it says "heck yeah, you don't need another patterned paper layer, you have ME!!". These are going to be very handy stamps to have around!
I used the Copic Colour Challenge for this week on today's project (#60). I know, not a lot of Copics on here, I added some darker highlighting (lowlighting?) to my background image, and custom-colored the yellow oval layer (it started off white). Pretty straightforward card, but I like the results!
Now how do you win that $10 Gift Certificate to the store today? Easy! Leave a comment on each DT member's blog post for today. That's it! For each person that leaves a comment on ALL the DT members' blogs, you will be entered in to the random drawing to win!

Now, if you are arriving here from Allison's blog you're right on track! If not, then head back over to the
LPS store blog to start from the beginning. Make sure you don't miss any blogs along the way!

Your next stop on the hop is DT Mama Pam! Hope you have fun hoppin' with us today! :) Check back with us tomorrow for Day 2 of the April Previews and another chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the store.
