Gecko Galz Blog Hop!

Hello Everyone!

I want to welcome everyone to the Fourth destination of
Gecko Galz 5th Annual Blog Hop

If you started here you might want to go back and start at the beginning at the Gecko Galz blog so you won’t miss anything!  
We have 14 AMAZING blogs for you to visit this weekend, each with some gorgeous projects created using the Gecko Galz exclusive blog hop collage sheets, that we are giving you for FREE! Each blog you visit will have another free Gecko Galz Collage sheet for you to grab, the one here is

"FLORAL FANTASIES".


Here are my samples, using the gorgeous Floral Fantasies Collage sheet 



Bottom right image printed twice, center fussy cut and popped.  Rose spray and bee fussy cut from center image and popped.  Background DP is from the Gecko Galz High Tea Digital Craft Kit 



Center left image, matted in purple.  Ribbon and perfume bottle (stretched in printing program) are icons from the Arsenic and Lace Digital Craft Kit.  Digital DP from the Vintage Visions Mini Paper Pack.




Gate fold card using top center image.  Image was cropped in printing program. Left side was sized for center of card and printed twice, once for inside and again to punch a circle for the belly band. Right side was sized for gate sides and flipped for the opposite side.  Each was printed twice to cover both inside and outside.  All images were distressed with scissors and inked with Milled Lavender Distress.    Ribbon from stash and inside sentiment sticker from Starform.



Noel Card using bottom left image.  We were challenged to make a Christmas card using our collage sheet.  I thought the gorgeous border of the bottom left image would be perfect. Center Christmas image was a previous freebie from the Gecko Galz Pinterest page.  Each was matted with green card stock and added to a gold metallic mat embossed with a Cuttlebug border folder on a dark green card base.  Ornament stickers and chipboard sentiment are K&Co.  Gold beads from Recollections.


Make sure you collect all the “secret” words on each blog so at the end of the hop you can send in the phrase to enter our drawing for a wonderful treat.
