ABC’s Blog Hop ~ J

Welcome to the Everything ABC Blog Hop!

ABC's Blog Hop

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

If you have just hopped onto my blog, welcome!  If you just hopped here from LINDA NORMAN’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 on Linda’s blog HERE.

I was trying to decide what would be my “J” element … Juniper, Jewelry… Jewels!  Yes, Jewels, all those shinny, blingy items would be prefect to use for a project.  Now how to use them…. what about doing something similar to the Happy Canvas on page 33 of the new Seasonal Expressions 2?  Perfect…. I love the heart with the sequins on our 6 x 6 canvas but to make it mine I changed the color to Thistle and instead of using sequins, I used some of the purple (my favorite color) gems/ jewels.

ABC's J ~ Canvas ~ thistle ~ carscrapbooking.comI cut the heart from Artiste pg 51 at 3 1/2″ and the Happy is from Artbooking pg 75 and is cut at 2″.

Items used:

  • My Creations Canvas 6 x 6 Z1818
  • Cardstock ~ Thistle, Whisper & Colonial White
  • Thistle Extra Thick Twine Z3040
  • Jewels ~ Purple Jewels (retired), Sparkles Red, Pink & Purple (retired) and Purple Glitter Gems Z1936

I so love the way this turned out and it will be hung in my craft room.  Now hop on over to MARIE GOETZ’S Blog to see what she has created for you today.

Happy Crafting!
