Papertrey Paper Dolls Blog Hop


Hi, I'm Deena, and I'm a Papertrey Paper Doll. I've been a doll since the very beginning. I stumbled across Lauren Meader's blog in September 2009, and it led me to PTI, which has been both a blessing and a curse. :) It has truly been a blessing to meet such wonderful people and join such a supportive group. However, every month, I end up feeling like I have no willpower. The Design Team gets me every time! My favorite PTI products are the dies. My favorite set is Take Note or Little Bitty Bird. My favorite PTI color (?) is Kraft, and my favorite PTI combo is Aqua Mist, Kraft, and Dark Chocolate OR Pure Poppy and Hawaiian Shores OR Pure Poppy and Berry Sorbet.

I am an intermediate school English teacher in Hawai'i. I have two awesome kids and a hubby who tolerates my crafting obsession. I started out as a scrapbooker, and now I'm primarily a card maker. In my spare time, I read and play basketball. I am also a soccer mom who never thought that's what she'd be.


I hope you have fun viewing our creations and participating in our first ever blog hop. We have two great prizes up for grabs. By commenting on one of our blogs, you'll have a chance to win the Made of Snow set. By participating in our challenge and linking it to our blog, you'll have a chance to win a PTI G.C. worth $25!

Here's my card.
  • P = Pinefeather (leaves)
  • T = Teracotta Tile & Think Big #1 & Tea for Two
  • I = In Bloom

Oops - I linked to your blog by mistake at first and now I goofed my comment :) Anyhoo, I can't BELIEVE you play b'ball, Deena - how cool is THAT!! Congrats on being in the trenches as an IS teacher too :)

I love this card - I just never use those two colors so I'm inspired seeing them together! The flower on the inside is the perfect touch to bring it all together. Bringing in the sentiment from tea additions is brilliant.

Laurie said...

Your color combo is FAB Deena! I love your card! So fun! So glad to read more about you!

Darla said...

What a fun blog hop and your interpretation of PTI is beautiful!!

leish said...

You make using In Bloom look so effortless. You know me, I have no vision for it!

I think it's funny that we both used Pinefeather. Yea, I know how you feel about it, but remember, I used to feel that way about Scarlet Jewel. I have a feeling you'll be using PF more! =)

Love the CAS look to this, those bold flowers don't need any help.

Sheetal Ahlawat said...

Beautiful card Deena:)

Helen F. said...

What a gorgeous card, love that flower and your beautiful color combo, Deena!

Suzanne said...

So pretty, Deena! I love how you decorated the inside. That sentiment from the Tea set goes PERFECTLY with the In Bloom flowers. Loved reading about you too. :)

Sara Mac said...

Great card Deena! Don't you love In Bloom? Can't go wrong. Thanks for sharing a bit about yourself. It's been so fun getting to know everyone.

Michelle said...

First, I love the new look of your blog! So bright and cheery! Your card is beautiful! I forget how much impact In Bloom can be just by itself. Very sophisticated. Glad to learn more about you. Kudos to you for teaching English. That was not one of my stronger subjects. Thanks for starting the Paper Dolls. You were the one to start the thread that got us going.

Kristin said...

This is simply a FAB card!! Just a classic and I love the color combo you used AND that you made it fit our challenge! Love being a *Doll* and being a part of such a talented group of women. Having a lot of fun getting to know everyone :)

Sara P said...

Stunning card. Love how you used the terra cotta.

Beautiful!! I love the clean line art!!

Kathy Mc said...

Love your color combo and the big blooms!

~Laurie said...

Beautiful card! I thought about using this stamp set but I didn't have any Pinefeather and no other green started with a PTI! Love what you did!! Definitely better than what I would have done with it!! Great job!

Isabel Z said...

Oh my, these are absolutely stunning--all of the creations that I am seeing on your blogs. I just discovered the Paper Dolls and am so excited that I have added all of you to my favorites for inspiration. Thank you!

Amy said...

Hi Deena! I so enjoyed this blog hop and getting to know my fellow "dolls"! I'm so glad that you used In Bloom paired with it's dies. I have yet to use these and it's great to see them used. Now to get my hiney in action and make something with them! Beautiful CAS card and I LOVE how you finished off the inside of your card!
