Pages In Time Interactive Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pages In Time Interactive Blog Hop! We call it an “Interactive Blog Hop” because you do more than read a blog, you actually get to create a layout along the way! At each stop you will collect steps for completing a layout!

The Interactive Blog Stop starts at the Pages In Time Blog with the Pages In Time Weekly Sketch.  From there, you will hop from blog to blog to collect the steps to create your layout! You should have arrived here from Andrea's Blog.  If you stumbled upon the hop by accident, please play along (just make sure you hit all the blogs)!

The step you are collecting from me is a Title.  To qualify for this step, your layout must include a title.
I find that no matter what I buy, I never have exactly what I want for letters.  So, I often get creative and paint, stamp or doodle on my chipboard letters.  Here is an example:
Be certain to write down the steps along the way, because you will need to incorporate them into your layout to be eligible for the overall prize! Speaking of prizes, take a peak at the grand prize:

To be eligible for the prize you must incorporate the sketch and five additional steps from the hop. The order of the hop is as follows:

Finally, you will need to upload your completed layout at Pages In Time. If you are not already a member, you will need to become one. Once you are there, you will find a Forum entitled “June 30 – July 6 Thursday Sketch” in the Sketches Forum. You will have until midnight on July 6th to upload your layout. All layouts that are based upon the sketch and have incorporated at least five of the steps from the blog hop will be eligible for the prize. A winner will be chosen by the Pages In Time Design Team.
You can earn two extra votes!!! If you follow all the blogs listed in the hop and leave a comment on each blog, you will be eligible for an extra vote. You can also earn an extra vote if you incorporate the step listed at each stop in your layout. That means, if you do your layout based on the sketch and include all of the steps, you get an extra vote!

One more surprise!!! I am offering a personal RAK to a random person that is a follower of my blog and leaves a comment!

Now hop on over to Lili’s blog.


  1. What an adorable page!!! Love the title tip. It's so easy and can add so much BOW to the title!!

  2. I think I might try stamping on the letters. I'm the same way - I buy stuff but it's never exactly what I want to use.

  3. Great idea to do stamping on your letters for the title, TFS!

  4. Awesome page Traci!I love the way stamping looks on titles!

  5. I'm going to dig through my stash to see what is left behind from other projects and see if I can re-do and use for this LO!

  6. Looks awesome, Traci! Great hop.

  7. your page is just sooo beautiful! I love your bright red title!

  8. Stunning page, love the colors you used. I'm a follower.

  9. I love the tea party page. That is a great idea of using up leftover letters with paint, etc.
