FLOWER MARKET - Rose Blossom Blog Hop

Welcome to another fun Blog Hop. If you've hopped over from Cathy's Blog "These Eager Hands" you probably saw some amazing artwork and you are going in the right direction.
This Hop features Close To My Hearts new Cricut Cartridge FLOWER MARKET.
All I can say is WOW!  This cartridge is by far one of my favorites.  This brand new collection features blooms and blossoms for every season of life. All of the designs feature botanical details of some kind, from flowers and leaves to branches and wreaths. Designed to span an entire year's worth of themes and occasions, this collection features shapes for holidays, cardmaking, and everyday scrapbooking.
Collection includes the following:
1 – cartridge (700 images: shapes, layers, banners, borders, titles, and font)
3 – My Acrylix D-size stamp sets
1 – Adventure cardstock combo pack

This is my creation using a few of the many Flower Market's lovely flowers.  Plan to display this in a black frame.   This piece is simple but packed full of love and memories.  
It was fun to use the "Paper of the Year" SEA GLASS along with some of the other new beautiful rich colors.
Another great feature that Flower Market has is it's sentiments.  So many different words for any occasion.  I chose Beautiful Life because it says it all.
Another fun little card using the little coffee cup & leaf shapes from the FLOWER MARKET cartridge.
You can find everything right HERE on my website.
Thanks for hopping along. Your next stop is Kristine's Blog "Merry Heart Creations" where I'm sure you will see something beautiful.

Welcome to the July 15th Blog Hop!

If you "hopped" over here from Morgan's TweetSCRAPS Blog, I'm sure you saw some amazing artwork and you are on the right track. 

Magical is absolutely it's name..."MAGICAL" .  Such adorable paper which can be used for many different projects...not just Disney related.  The complements are just perfect to pull everything together.


This layout was designed for my June Class and the girls loved it.  Izzy, Tyson and Vincent had such a great time along with Mom & Dad.  Swimming, boating, tubing, fun on the sand bar, grilling, smores....the whole works. They even saw a Momma Turtle lay eggs and bury them in the sand...right on our campsite.  We marked the spot so we are very careful to step around that area.

This next layout is a continuation of our fun family weekend at the lake.   Lot's of white space with a few water color splats are a great combination with this adorable paper.  The Cricut Artbooking cartridge was used to make the "fun & sun" title.

Here's an extra little card made with this amazing paper and a PML card to make it quick and easy. Added white twine & a couple embellishments and there you go.
Supplies Used:
Magical Paper Pack
Magical Complements
Poppy Thick Twine
White Twine
Calypso Sequins
Beautiful You PML
Watercolor Paints
Paintbrush set
Cranberry, Honey and White Daisy Cardstock
Cricut Artbooking Cartridge

Many of these items will be going away soon.  Don't miss can order by clicking on the "Shop with Me" tab on the right, or clicking on this LINK .
The next stop on the HOP is Brenda's Rose Blossom Legacies  Blog. You will love Brenda's artwork.  Always a treat to see what she has created.
