The Queen's Royal Court Blog Hop: NIKKI SILVIS


Good Sunday morning, everyone! The Scrapbooking Queen and I have partnered with 8 super talented crafters to bring you The Queen's Royal Court Design Team. Together we will be showcasing some of the hottest brands on the paper-crafting scene. We're kicking off with our first sponsored blog hop today. 


Welcome to

The Queen's Royal Court Blog Hop
featuring 
NIKKI SILVIS's SCRAPBOOKER



Here are designers in the Queen's Royal Court:

If you have arrived at this blog from Jenny's Crazy About Cricut, you are on the right track. If not, just click here to start the hop from Theresa's The Scrapbooking Queen blog and keep hopping until you're back here. Check out all the fun things that you can do with Nikki Silvis products and put in your entry to win some of her gorgeous papers. There are ten of us on this hop which means that you have TEN chances to WIN! By the way, if you should lose your way on the hop, just come back here and refer back to the list above to get back on track.

We will be using Nikki Silvis' papers for our projects this week and this is my project for today:



The card measures 6" x 4.5" and all the printed papers are from the "My Friend Birdie" Collection. The kraft cardstock is from Recollections. 



For the sentiment, I used Lettering Delights' LD Woodland font and cut out the letters at a height of 0.5" using Make-the-Cut. As the letters are relatively skinny, I cut them out on white contact paper  instead of cardstock. That way, I didn't even need to deal with gluing all the letters down. Can we say instant stickers? Yeah, Baby!

To transfer the letters from the mat to the paper, I used the trick that I mentioned in this post.

Putting this card together was super quick and super easy because all the patterns already co-ordinate. I didn't even need to dig through my giant mountain of papers for matching pieces. By the way, the decorative edge of the blue paper on the left was made with Martha Stewart's Cherish border punch.

Now let's check out the goodies that Nikki Silvis has sent me for the hop's giveaway:



Do they look yummy or what?! No need to drool because you just might be the ONE lucky winner to get them.

Here's how to win:

You must be a follower to enter in the giveaway. If you are not already a follower, just click on the "Follow" button on the right.

Leave ONE comment on this post and tell me what you would make with the papers if you win.

Make sure that you leave your email address or any other form of contact so that I may inform you if you win.

Entries to the giveaway will be accepted from now until March 26th 6:00 PM PST. The winner will be chosen by RANDOM.ORG and announced on Monday, March 28, 2011.

  43. I would definitely use this paper for card making. What settings did you use to cut the contact paper. Do you kiss cut it like vinyl? Before you put the clear contact paper on do you make it less sticky first? I would have thought that paper would stick and not release from it.
