Featured Paper Blog Hop

Welcome to our Featured Paper Blog Hop! We will be showcasing items from our Falling For You or Cats & Bats Paper Pack with various projects created by talented Close to my Heart consultants. If you are visiting from Haley’s blog then you are on the right track, if not you can start at the beginning with our hostess Carol. Don’t forget to check out Kathleen’s  blog for more fun.

Last year I fell in love with the Birthday Sparkles (B1537) and All the Thanks (B1536) stamp sets because they were interchangeable.  I could create one card and switch it up between Happy Birthday or Thank You! This year, CTMH has added to these little gems with Sending Prayers (B1563)

B1563 Sending Prayers

While looking at the Annual Inspirations I found a card made with this stamp set and some of the Fundamentals lines. I decided to use this basic design for a card with the Cats & Bats papers.

I really liked the dark and light Emerald polka dot paper, as well as the geometric lines on white. So, I paired these with one of the black patterned papers and two octagons cut on the Cricut (Emerald is 2.5″ and the White Daisy is 2 .25″) – these can be found in the basic shapes.

I offset the two octagons for a little visual variety, then finished it off with a few of the green Cats & Bats dots (Z4028) and some silver shimmer trim (Z1799)

Thanks for stopping by today! Don’t forget to go see what amazing artwork Kathleen has in store for you!

Enjoy the rest of your hop!
