Hostess Exclusive Blog Hop

 If you're coming from Tonya's blog you're on the right track.

Welcome to the Heartfelt Sentiments Team Hostess Exclusive Blog Hop. We're featuring stamps sets that only our hostesses can receive for a great discount. I'm using Well Wishes. It's available as a Hostess Reward for only $4.00!














I used Ruby and Olive ink to stamp the main image several times and cut it out in different areas to layer and make it dimensional.






















The olive card front was stamped in Olive 2nd generation randomly all over to create texture and interest.






















I think it would be a very versatile stamp set to add to your collection.

Thanks for stopping by! Now, continue on with the hop and check out what Sheila has to show you!

CTMH Paper Focus Blog Hop - Chalk It Up

Welcome to the Heartfelt Sentiments Team's Close To My Heart Paper Focus Blog Hop. Each month, we use a different paper packet from the Annual Inspirations Idea Book. And, this month, in honor of the start of school we're using Chalk It Up.

If you're coming from Melissa Robinson's blog, you're on the right track!

For my project, I chose to do a card. I was working on the Chalk It Up Workshop on the Go and these are leftovers from that project. I also chose to use the stamp set that comes with it to show how versatile these sets are.
Lagoon cardstock was edge distressed and layered over a white card base. The banners were cut from one of the B&T papers and I used two cute embellishments from the Chalk It Up Assortment that came in the workshop kit. To finish it off, I wrote a sentiment with LePen journaling pen.

I hope you've enjoyed stopping by my blog today. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. I look forward to your next visit! Now, hop on over to Melissa David's blog to continue the hop.

Team Paper Packet Focus : Timberline

It's our monthly team focus of paper from the Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book and Catalog. If you're coming from Judy Faye's Blog , you're on the right track!

This month we had our choice of Timberline or Skylark. Both of these paper packs are my most favorites in this issue of the Close To My Heart Idea Book. Since I had the perfect photo for Timberline, I decided to do a one-page layout with the Timberline paper on Studio J for my entry in the monthly blog hop. Timberline was perfect for scrapping this kayaking photo. I got creative with the Stickease in the online scrapping software to make a cute watery border at the bottom with the same Stickease that I used in the title. And, I also created a jagged accent on the left side by layering the trees Stickease.

I hope you've enjoyed my latest Studio J layout! You can discover for yourself how easy it is to scrapbook your memories neatly and quickly by going to my website. To continue on the hop, click HERE and it will take you to Melissa's blog. Thanks for looking!
