Cloud9 August Blog Hop

Welcome to another Cloud9 Blog Hop, for fans of Wplus9 stamps! This month, we are using a sketch as the inspiration for our hop:

To get you started, our Team has designed a few cards to inspire you:

And this month's Guest Designer, Maureen Merritt!

There is an inlinkz submission window located at the bottom of this post so you can submit your project. You have until 10am EST on August 12th to play along. Please view the Rules of Play in the right sidebar for contest details.

One lucky random winner will receive a $25 gift card to Wplus9, donated by Dawn Woleslagle, owner of Wplus9 Design Studio LLC. Our Inspiration Team will also be voting for their top picks from the hop, and the player with the most votes wins a spot as our guest designer for the September 2012 Blog Hop!

We can't wait to see what you've come up with. Happy Hoppin'!

Cloud9 Blog Hop Preview: August 2012

Welcome to the Cloud9 Blog Hop Preview for this month!  This month we're challenging you to make a project inspired by the following sketch, using at least one Wplus9 image:

The actual hop will go live on August 9th at 10am EST. In case you're stuck (perhaps because you're just so distracted by the awesome release previews going on right now), that post will include some projects from our Inspiration Team and last month's winner of our Guest Spot, Maureen Merritt, to help get you started. YAY!
In the meantime, we would love to hear from you: what's your favorite Wplus9 stamp set and why? Our very first hop last month surely added to the wish lists of many people, including myself, and we'd love to hear your thoughts on what to order first.

Thanks so much!
