Free To Be Me Blog Hop - National Scrapbooking Month

Welcome to our Blog Hop featuring the Promotional Paper Packet Free To Me Be!  This paper packet is available only during the Month of May for National Scrapbooking Month.  If you have come here from the amazing creations on Jody Gustafson's Blog , you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here .

This month we have approximately 20 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this amazing Paper Packet and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

My first photo is showcasing some Birthday cards (I can never have enough of these), so I made a set of 5 to have on hand.  I used a pattern found in the Originals How to Book,
Balance it out found on pg 102.  I love how quickly this cards came together.  Besides the paper found in this paper pack, I used Lagoon CS for the mat, and White Daisy to stamp my sentiment from.  The sentiment comes from Joyful Birthday(B1419), and is stamped in Lagoon Ink.  I then added some Aqua Dots to finish the card.

My second photo is showing a super fun card that was featured on one of Artbooking Videos because we use the overlay found on page 61 and sized it to 5 1/4" for this 6x6 card.  I then used the overlay to create a stencil so that I could see exactly where to lay my paper pieces.  The overlay and paper pieces are matted on a piece of Lagoon CS before being adhered to the card.  Then I cut a 2x2" square of White Daisy to stamp the sentiment found on the stamp set Inspirational Flourishes(C1581) which is stamped in Ruby Ink.

Now "Hop" on over to Nikka Geers Blog to see her  incredible work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas!
