Cloud Nine Blog Hop

Cloud+Nine+final+800
Welcome to our Cloud Nine Blog Hop!  We will be featuring Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit which is the special for this month.  If you have come here from
Michelle Loncar, 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.

Love You Layout by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all included in the Cloud Nine Card Kit (scraps of papers, Shimmer Trim, and Durables Triangle Studs).  I also used the Artiste Cricut cartridge (not included in the Cloud Nine Card Kit) that coordinates with the Cloud Nine Stamp Set.

This layout came together quickly but simply using the scraps that I had left after making the cards from the kit.  To create a full 12×12 sheet, I overlapped the scraps and glued them together (Goldrush and Lagoon cardstock make the base for this layout).  The 12×12 Versamat works GREAT for this!  Or you could use a sheet of cheap (paper you don’t like) paper as a base.  Another trick I did for this layout was the patterned border that runs down the center of the page; it is actually two pieces of paper and the matted photo covers the gap that is left in the middle.

After finishing the cards as outlined in the kit and this one-page layout, I have used up all the paper but still have about 1/2 a sheet of studs, a LOT of Washi Tape, a LOT of Shimmer Trim, and the stamp set to use for many more projects!

**When using this stamp set for future projects be sure to use Real Dial Size!

Now “Hop” on over to my friend Haley Dyer to see her work!  Be sure to visit all the consultants at their blogs to get some great ideas for getting the most out of this card kit! Remember, the Cloud Nine Kit is only available until January 31 or while supplies last!  Full details here.
