Papertrey September Blog Hop Challenge

Yay! Today is the Papertrey Blog Hop!
One of the most fun things about this hobby is the people you meet, whether in person or online, and the things you learn from them.  Now is your chance to show off any skills you might have learned from a fellow stamper, and perhaps even give them a little shout out to thank them for the inspiration they have provided.  Create a project using one of your favorite learned skills and perhaps after a little blog hopping, we will ALL learn some new tips and tricks and continue to pass on the love of this hobby!

The person I have been learning a huge amount from lately is Michelle Wooderson of Mish Mash. I've recently used her tutorial to make decorative clothespins, and I was inspired by how she stamps on shipping tags when I made these card sets.

This morning while trying to get a present for my sweet friend Lisa out the door in record time I needed to think of a way to make it special... FAST. Michelle's use of brown paper bags for packaging mixed with her shipping tags came to the rescue. I was able use my new Everyday Treats stamps for the main image and I was done in less than ten minutes.

Wanna see her present? It's okay, she already knows what's coming.
