YNS August New Release Blog Hop

Today is a very special day as Your Next Stamp is celebrating its very 1st birthday with a Birthday Blog Hop!
The YNS Starlets are being joined by some fabulous friends for this hop, and together we are showcasing some fantastic new release stamps as well as some firm favorites! These new stamps are available to buy from today from Your Next Stamp, along with all your YNS favorites.
If you'd like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Angela's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the start of the hop at Karen's blog, as I'm sure you don't want to miss out on all the fun we have for you today!
The hop starts today (Thursday, August 5th at 08:00 EST) and ends on Wednesday August 11th at midnight (EST).

We have not one but two grand prizes for you to win - two lucky winners will be drawn at random to each receive a $25 gift certificate to spend on YNS stamps! WOW! As the prize is so fantastic, we are going to make you work a little to enter, LOL! Each Starlet and Guest Starlet have a letter hiding in their blog post. All you need to do is gather these letters, rearrange them to form a 3-word phrase, and then email this phrase to Karen. All correct entries will be entered into the grand prize draw. So make sure you hop around every blog and remember to leave a comment at every stop too.
My secret letter is .... "N"
All that cake must have affected Karen as she has gone a little crazy and is holding a 20% off sale for the duration of the hop - the crazy part is that everything will be reduced by 20%, including items already on sale! I'm not sure when (or even if!) this will happen again, so make sure you hop on over to the YNS store once you've completed the hop and fill your basket!
I have used Little Helper Fhinn stamp set for my blog hop creation. It's so fun to show you this new release stamp and I used this to create a birthday theme project. Since Fhinn is dressed as a handyman. I couldn't resist not to make a birthday theme project with some type of handyman related item. So therefore, I ended up making this pizza box for some nails/screws. Isn't this Fhinn so cute??



Here is a closer view for this cute image


Side view of this box. I added a measurement ribbon.


Here is a view to show you putting the screws inside and flat view to show you the dimension of this box


So now it's time for you to hop on over to Beth's blog as she is the next stop on our hop, but don't forget to grab my hidden letter first and also leave me a comment!
Thanks so much for hopping with us today! I hope you enjoy our birthday celebrations and new stamps!
