Instagram Summer Blog Hop ♥


I love Insatagram! Who doesn't? I love it even before I own an iphone. You could have guess correctly which apps I installed first when I got the phone. Instagram of course!Besides the fact I can share pictures with my friends in an instant, I also love their filters. When Jessy (who is both my craft and Instagram buddy) invited me to join the Instagram Summer Blog Hop, I don't need to think twice. I love taking pictures of my baby girl with Instagram and sometimes sneak of my project. If you don't already install this fabulous app, you should do it now. You will love it for sure :)

So what's a blog hop without a giveaway right? I am going to give away a mini book kit which I put together specially just for you. It's my first time and I had so much making them. Hope the winner will love it too. The size of the mini is 4.5"x6"....just perfect for your instagram pictures or use it for your Project Life. You can add more pages as you progress.

I include some of my handmade embellishments into the kit such as the fabric flower and velvet bow. The flower is made of fabric paper by Amy Tangerine. Love :) Flair badges and washi tape are in trend right now so I had to include them too. 

I always have a penchant for beautiful packaging and when I have the opportunity to create one, I jumped at it (

All wrapped up and ready to ship when I select the winner after the hop.

You must be wondering how to play along, right? Very simple. All you need to do is be a follower and leave a comment here. The hop starts on 14th June and ends on 17th June. Go on and visit all the particpated links below for a greater chance to win. And don't forget to spread the words around.
