For my letter “P” I am featuring two PAPER PACKS ~ Blossom and Brushed and my PHOTOS are from Sky PRAIRIE PARK.  I also could not resist giving you a PEAK at the new Close to My Heart Artistry cartridge.  I have really enjoyed mixing up the paper packs and for this layout it was no different.

ABC's P layout ~ Blossom ~ Brushed ~ Artistry ~ catscrapbooking.com

I used several cuts from the new Artistry cartridge.   The banners up in the top left corner can be found on page 30 (cut at 1.54″ high and 1.79″ high).  The medallions behind the monkeys is the banner found on page 3 (cut at 2.34″ high).  The Glacier circle is cut at 2″.

ABC's P detail ~ Blossom ~ Brushed ~ Artistry ~ CatScrapbooking.comI used the Artistry font which is Hopscotch Alphabet.  I did weld and stretch the alphabet to get it the way I wanted it.  I cut it twice once in Kraft and once in Lagoon. The monkeys are found on page 24 (2″ and 1.14″ high).  I used my journaling pen to make the nose and mouths.  I used my black Shin Han marker to color the Bitty Sparkles for the eyes on the three larger monkeys.
Here is the full list of supplies used:

  • Paper Packs: Blossom X7196B and Brushed X7190B
  • Cardstock: Kraft, Glacier, Sunset, Lagoon and White Daisy

Choose Happy

This stamp set is very whimsical and be fun addition to any card or layout.  When I was brainstorming for an inspiration the first thing that came to mind was a tag.  Then I went to the Close to My Heart how to book,  Wishes, and was instantly inspired by the card on the cover. I flipped to page 97 and got to work.

Choose Happy SOTM CTMH ~catsrapbooking.comI actually combined two of the sentiments on the stamp set “you’re special” and “this day”.  Using a masking technique I was able to combine them and create “You’re Special Day”.  I colored the frame using our new ShinHan markers to make it really pop. ***I realize I have made a faux pas ~ My card is not grammatically correct.  I will try and make the change as soon as I can. ***

ABC’s Blog Hop ~ D

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog hop! ABC's Blog HopFor this hop we will be featuring the letter “D”.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “D” 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 just came from DIANA SANDERS Blog then you are in the right place.

Today for my “D” element I have choose DAFFODILS.  I love the new stamp set A Little Note A1171.  You can see it featured on page 23 of the Seasonal Expressions One.  I so love the card displayed on that page.  I have been meaning to design my own cards for some time so this was the perfect excuses.  I actually designed three cards using this stamp set.

A Little Note ~ ABC's D ~ catscrapbooking.com

This one was simple just using Topiary and Canary cardstock to double frame the Daffodils and then putting on Kraft cardstock.  I used the Yellow diamond washi tape on White Daisy cardstock then split it down the center.

Blushed ~ A Little Note ~ ABC's D ~ catscrapbooking.comFor this card I though the Brushed paper pack would coordinate wonderfully with this stamp set.  I used the topiary washi as accent.

Hopscotch ~ A Little Note ~ ABC's D ~catscrapbooking.comThis is my favorite!   I know I have said this so many times but I absolutely love the Hopscotch paper pack and knew it would be great for this card.   I used Glacier to back the stamped White Daisy cardstock with Flaxen Extra Thick Twine to accent the design.

Supplies used for all cards:

  • Paper Packs ~ Hopscotch X7194B, Brushed X7190B
  • Cardstock ~ Glaicer, Canary, Topary, White Daisy and Kraft
  • ShinHan Markers ~ Pastel Green Z2459, Sap Green Z2463, Golden Yellow Z2452, and Maragold Z2457
  • Embellishments ~ Flaxen Extra Thick Twine Z3036. Junebug Puffies Z3038, Honey Triangles Washi Z1931 and Topiary Stripe Washi Z2002
