Why Hello Lovely!

 
Welcome to the February 15th Rose Blossom Blog Hop!  If you've arrived here from Morgan's
Tweet Scraps Blog you are hopping along in the right direction.  I'm sure you've enjoyed some amazing artwork.
 
This month we are showcasing the beautiful paper pack Hello Lovely.  This paper pack is absolutely gorgeous and can be used for so many projects and page layouts. 
 
 
 
 
 
  I've been really "loving" Hello Lovely and have been busy making and preserving memories with this adorable paper pack and the Hello Lovely Complements .
 
Family is everything in my book....and this 2 page layout holds a few good memories we've made together this past year with our youngest son, Tom's family.
 
 
 
A couple close ups of the complements used for this layout.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The second 2 page layout is our Grandson, Brady's first Prom with his friend Audrey.  The Picture My Life cards that come with the paper pack work so beautifully to accent your pages. 
 
 

 



 
 


Other supplies used on these layouts were Sorbet, New England Ivy and White Daisy cardstock, Blush Shimmer Ribbon and Liquid Glass. 
You can find all these items on my website HERE.
 
Now it's time to hop over to Kristine's Blog Merry Heart Creations to see more beautiful Hello Lovely projects. 
 
Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to see you here again soon.

"Everything New"




 
Welcome to the very first Rose Blossom Blog Hop of 2017.  We will be blogging on the 15th of every month so I hope you stop back for a little bit of inspiration and creativity.  This month we are featuring designs and projects from the Close To My Heart newest Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book. 
 
If you've come from Morgan's "TweetScraps" Blog, I'm sure you've seen some very creative artwork. 
 
My favorite part of paper crafting is creating layouts to preserve events and memories of our family, friends, activities and trips. 
 
This layout is featuring one of the new "Workshops Your Way "Sugar Rush"
 
Kit contents:
1 – Sugar Rush paper packet (X7215B)
1 – Sugar Rush Complements (X7215C)
4 – cardstock sheets (1 Whisper, 3 White Daisy)
1 – Sugar Rush dots (Z3310)
1 – Sugar Rush washi pack (Z3311)
 
The memory I chose to preserve is of our youngest Granddaughter Charlee.  Her Mom captured the most adorable pictures of her testing out her first Birthday cake.  When I saw these pictures, I knew exactly which paper pack to reach for.  The pictures are matted with Close To My Hearts paper of the year Sea Glass . This gorgeous cardstock is a color that coordinates with everything.  
 

 
 
 
 
 
The cluster of flowers along the bottom of the layout are made from the
 Flower Market Cricut Cartridge  and have a touch of sparkle from our
Gold Shimmer Brush along with some Gold Glitter Gems for a little accent in the center.
 
You can find all of these items on my website HERE .
 
Now it's time to hop on over to Kristine's "Merry Heart Creations" Blog to see her creativity flowing.
 
Thanks for stopping at the Playground!  Hope to see you again soon.

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.
