ABC’s Blog Hop ~ D

ABC's Blog Hop

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!

For 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 came from  MICHELLE BATTITORI ~ Michelle’s Handmade World then you’re on the right track!

 For my letter “D” I decided to use the new dots embossing folder, discover and Dreamin’ paper pack (retired).  I am sure you may think there are so many embossing folders out there, what makes these Close to My Heart’s new embossing folders so special?  Well there are several reasons.

  1. The dots are larger than the ones I have seen which I love
  2. The folders themselves are 5 x 7 so it will fit all of your cardmaking neeeds
  3. And lastly you can emboss a full 4 1/4 inch by 12 inch paper!!!!! I can finally use larger embossed items in my scrapbook pages!!! This is because at the top of Close to My Heart’s embossing folders there is a slit which will allow you to reposition and keep embossing!
  4. You could get yours for FREE this month with the purchase of any two cardstock packs (Daisy, Colonial and Kraft are excluded) check here for more details
