April Release Hop

Were you able to attend the party yesterday!?!?!?! we had tons of fun seeing all the new stamp sets in action! The FOUR new clear stamp sets that we've been sharing all week are NOW up in the krafty shop and we're celebrating with a Krafty HOP!

For the hop I wanted to make little boxes I could surprise some of my friends with, just to brighten their day. I know sometimes when I am having a bad day and I get a little surprise it turns my day around right quick. I used one of the sentiments from RAINY DAY LULU on one tag and part of the image on the other tag. I then adhered them to little boxes I made! done!

You will get to see ALL of the new sets in action as you sit back and enjoy the hop! Then head on over to the krafty shop because they are ALL available NOW!
