Top Dog Dies Meets Scrapbook Circle - Blog Hop

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Top Dog Dies and Scrapbook Circle Blog Hop.  You are in for a real treat, and you will have a chance to win some really AWESOME prizes.  If you arrived here from Renee Robbins' blog, you're in the right place.  If you just happened along this hop, please start at the Top Dog Dies Blog.  By the way, check out these GREAT DEALS taking place this week at Top Dog Dies to celebrate the hop.
For those of you who are familiar with the Scrapbook Circle, they offer lovely monthly scrapbook kits that include a custom printable and coordinating digital files.  They create exclusive items for each monthly kit.  Today through May 31, you can save 20% off your order by using coupon code scrapbook20.

I made this jar filled with yummy chocolates, and I had a lot of fun combining my Top Dog Dies with all the sweet products that were given to us by the Scrapbook Circle.  This is a regular old antique mason jar.   I painted the lid cream and glittered it.  Then, to the front of the jar, I attached the Top Dog Dies adorable Madison Doily Die.  To that, I added some flowers, a Prima leave, some jute, stick pins, and small butterflies cut from the new Top Dog Dies Butterfly Finishers Die Set.  The hang tag at the bottom right of the doily is made from more of the adorable die-cut elements from the Scrapbook Circle, as are the colorful chevrons sticking off each side of the flower.  This hang tag also includes the circle shaped die-cut from the Top Dogs Mini Tags Die Set with a tiny wooden flower attached to it.
I wanted to get a few side shots so that you can see everything.  The Top Dog Dies really compliment these sweet embellishments from the Scrapbook Circle.  They make a great combination!
The photo below show you the side view of the tag I have hanging down by the lace bow.  I used the "Explore" and camera die-cut images from Scrapbook Circle along with a piece from their Oh Darling Crate Paper transparency chips.  On top of those, I added a jute bow, a blue resin flower, and the hanging tag is actually the butterfly's body from the Top Dog Dies Butterfly Finishers Die Set.
And finally, another side shot showing ALL the AWESOME die-cuts (a total of four) from Top Dog Dies combined with all the SUPER SWEET products from Scrapbook Circle.  Both of these amazing shops have such wonderful products....so, why not treat yourself to some new goodies today?!  They sure are fun to get creative with, and I hope you are able to experience them all.
