I decided that I would use Pixie a brand new member of the Whimsy family for my letter P.

I was inspired while hopping along the Close to My Heart Stamp of the Month Hop for August when I hopped across to Shirley Ross’s Mom ‘n me Scrap Blog – you can find my inspiration card by clicking on her blog name.  The cute petals are actually the “wings” for the owl in the Give A Hoot stamp set.

You’ll notice that this time I made two cards and it was to show the new Whimsy Assortment Paper Fundamentals.  The Paper Fundamentals have been around awhile in the “Basic” color pallet, but three new assortments were added with the new Annual Inspirations.  Paper Fundamentals are double sided 12 X 12 sheets with the same design on both sides – one side has a glossy pattern.  It is very hard to tell in the pictures and I even had to point out the difference to my husband.

This week my husband and I celebrated our four year anniversary.  I love making him cards for all our special and “non-special” occassions.  Since I recently made a box card that I was pretty happy with I decided that for a little extra punch I’d try another!  I used the Lollydoodle paper, paired with the OWLS and GIRLS ROCK stamp sets along with Cricut Art Philosophy cut hearts.  When the box is open it looks like the hearts are pouring out and I sort of wish that I’d added them to the second tab and put the flowers in first, but it’s all the same and packed full of love!  I told him I was confiscating it back to display on the shelf above my desk – it’s just to cute to be stored in his memory box!

I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my “O”…Your next stop on our Everything ABC’S blog Hop is Lauren’s CTMH Craftings.

Nice Neutral Newlyweds

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter N.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their M element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.  If you’re coming from >>> you’re on the right path.

My “N” is two fold…a neutral card using the Newlyweds stamp.

I love Close to My Heart’s Embossing Folders  the Damask Embossing Folder leaves such a nice clean, deep impression.  I especially love using it on our white daisy cardstock for it’s elegant look.  I wanted a simple and elegant look for this wedding card so I kept with a neutral palette of black & white.  The card front is tied with a piece of black Baker’s Twine and the Newlywed car is mounted on 2 inch square cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge, the square is then cut again at 2 1/4 from Black Glitter Paper.  I know I’ve mentioned that I love our Glitter Paper because it doesn’t “shed” and works slick as a whistle in the Cricut.

As you know I think it’s just as important to decorate the inside of the card so after stamping “Oh Happy Day” from the Artiste Collection Bundle I topped it off with silver and black Shimmer Trim.

I hope you’ll hop on over to Catherine’s Catscrapbooking where you’ll discover her use of the letter N.

Thanks for stopping by!

Mmmmm, what’s this about the letter M?

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter M.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their M element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda’s blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.  If you came from Lauren’s blog  CTMH Craftings then you’re on the right track!

I couldn’t decide which “M” I wanted to use so I used two!  My card base is Kraft cardstock layered with the Jubilee Papers.  As a farm girl I have found so many uses for this paper!  I stamped the “HI” from the “M” sized collection of stamps.  These stamps may be mini in size, but they pack a BIG punch and I find myself reaching for them often.  I actually stamped it twice – once in cranberry ink which I used as my image and once in black as I wanted to color in the flower and pop dot it with 3D Foam Tape.  I then stamped the arrow from the hostess exclusive stamp set Doodle Signs in Indian Corn Blue and layered on a  white Marquee Enamel Shape.  This card went together so quickly.

L is for …

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

 For this hop we will be featuring the letter L. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  I chose to use the Laughing Lola paper packet as my “L”.  Although Laughing Lola was featured in the autumn/winter catalog it was one of four paper packs that carried over to the spring catalog.  As I mentioned before Lola was my maternal grandma’s name so how couldn’t I fall in love with this paper?
