Simply Inspired Blog Hop!

simply inspired

It’s another fun HOP to celebrate National Paper Crafting Month! And I’m happy you’re here! If you came from Diana V, then you are on the right path. If you want to start at the beginning and re visit all these cool ideas then be sure to start with Dana’s Scraptabulous Blog!

Close To My Heart always has a winter special and this one is so much fun! It really celebrates paper crafting and creativity! I LOVE the new Designed Decor Shadow Box (magnetic scrapbooking frames) that CTMH offers. For this project I wanted to match the fresh and springtime feel of the paper pack colors. They are BEE- A-U- Tee-Ful.

My base page is the pretty Light Blue card stock from the kit. I made pinwheels from the patterned paper in the kit (you get 2 sheets!) and I stamped some White Daisy card stock using the Champagne ink pad to pull all the neutral colors together. The stamp set that comes with the paper pack has some great words that you can use over and over.

I cut a border from my Art Philosophy circut cartridge . I used one the new border punches and then I started to assemble. I added the little stamped banner for a touch of whimsy. Last, but not least, I added the gold stickers and gold glitter gems.










This is one of my favorite projects! I hope you are inspired to make a gift for someone you love. Now HOP on over to Pamela O’. I’m sure she got something wonderful to share!
