If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.   For this hop we have about 10 consultants participating and you are going to see some fabulous artwork.

This was one of my favorite boy/guy paper packs and I am so happy to play with it again. Here is a layout I created using the new stamp set and papers.

I used most of the pattern paper and only use cardstock for accents. The cardstock I used was Toffee, Saffron, Vanilla, Sapphire and Pewter. I a couple of the new stickers with this Urban Collection. The gears were cut with my Cricut.

I love the new stamp set that was created with this Urban Collection!! I used second generation Saffron ink with the Sapphire for the tittle. I did use my retired tag thin cuts for the journaling. I stamped it with second generation Saffron and Mink, then added some retired sapphire burlap ribbon.

I thought I would share a three of my projects that I created when Urban first came out in 2015.

Here is another layout using Urban.

Finally here is a card that I created.

For my letter “C” I decided to scrapbook a layout of one of our trips to the COLORADO Rail Road Museum on CHRISTMAS Eve which includes a COUPLE photos of a CABOOSE.  I COMBINED two paper packs, Urban and the CRANBERRY B&T from Jubilee (retired) along with COLONIAL white CARDSTOCK.  What is interesting is the paper from Jubilee and one of the Urban papers have a CRACKLE appearance. I also used my CRICUT to cut the title and RR signs.  Okay I know enough with the “C” words here is my layout.
