Everything ABC’s Blog Hop ~ Letter Z

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!!!

ABC's Blog BadgeThis week we will be featuring the letter “Z”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “Z” element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from JODI BREWSTER’S BLOG then you are in the right place.   The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultants at the bottom of this post.

The letter “Z” is another one of those difficult letters.  Thankfully CTMH has these wonderful things called ZIPSTRIPS on the top of all of our pattern papers.  It just worked out beautifully as I needed to make gift card holders and the ZIPSTRIPS work as the band. Take a look….

abcs-z-zipstrip-snowman-gift-card-holder-catscrapbooking-comHere is the gift card holder when you remove the band.

gift-card-holder-catscrapbooking-comI used the one of the glacier papers from the Whimsy Fundamentals and added the Zipstrip from City Sidewalks Paper pack.  I also just love this snowman and the coordinating thin cuts from Cozy Christmas.

I have to admit the letter J is one of the more challenging letters.  I chose to complete a layout a JEEP, my son loves all vehicles but particularly one of our good friends Jeep.  I love the new paper packs and although the Magical paper would work fabulously for Disney, it was perfect for my JEEP layout.  Plus this layout works for my personal challenge and is layout number #18

La Vie En Rose ~ Beloved Bouquet ~ Hearts ~ Valentine's ~ CatScrapbooking.comSo to make the card base I used the three different hearts then welded them to a rectangle so I created the heart edge.  Before I welded everything I made a copy of the grouped hearts so I could cut the individual hearts to add to the base.  I really love the way this turned out.
