welcome to the memories always - forever blog hop!


Welcome to our first Memories Always-Forever blog hop!! We are so excited to introduce our site and our Design Team to you!! This hop starts 8 a.m. (EST) Sat. Aug. 1st.


•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

(If you arrived here any way other than from our blog hop, please go back to the MAF homepage to start at the beginning of the hop.)

Memories Always-Forever (MAF) has been created as a place where members can rally together as a crafting community, showcase their crafting talents, share their ideas, learn and participate in exciting challenges. Our Design Team is here to provide inspiration, answer questions or just chat with you!

As a Design Team member for MAF, I will be hosting a Scraplift Challenge twice a month (on the first and third Fridays). If you've already been playing Sketchy Thursdays, you know how I run challenges and know that this should be fun! Sketchy Thursdays can also be found on MAF, so join to see what other crafty peeps are posting for their entries.

Now to showcase some of what you can find on MAF. In July we had a Girlfriend Card Swap and (spolier alert to my swapper Eileen... lol) here is what I made for that swap.





Leave me a comment today on this post to let me know you were here, that you did the hop and that you also signed up at MAF to be entered to win this scappy prize from me. You are only eligible if you comment here before 11:59 p.m. (EST) Sunday, Aug. 2 and also become a member of MAF. I will pick and announce my winner on Monday.

I have to tell you what's in this blog candy from some of my favorite brands!

I would be lost without MiniMarks and these rub ons are white font. The Anna Griffin chipboard pieces are from the same set that the background paper in the above cards were made from. Adorable butterflies that have a great texture to them, a tin of flowers, three rolls of American Crafts ribbon, journal spots and embellies from one of my fave Etsy sellers, Half Full Martini, and a little gift pack of misc. Chatterbox embellies. There are cork, chipboard and paper embellies in here from their Fabulous Collection. If you look back through my pages, I include at least one piece from Fabulous in almost everything I make.

Be sure to make your way to the end of the hop where you can be entered to win this Blog Hop Grand Prize Candy!


Now onto the next talented girl on the hop:
Lailani at Studio Lailani


If at any point on the hop you happen to get lost or off track just check back on the MAF homepage for the hop list.
