Everything ABC’s Blog Hop (Letter E)

Welcome to the Everything ABC’s Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter E. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their “E” element will be featured in their post.


If you came from Tonya Whitehurst ~ Heart & Soul Scrappers then you’re on the right track!

Wedding Card by Wendy Kessler

Wedding Card by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Love Always Stamp Set, Slate Ink, White Daisy Organdy Ribbon, Cardstock (Slate, White Daisy), Quatrefoil Embossing Folder, Confetti Embossing Folder, and White Daisy Cards & Envelopes.

I chose Embossing for the letter E.  I haven’t done much embossing even though I like the look because my machine seems to have too much pressure and the images end up cutting through in parts instead of just embossing.  While creating this project, I learned that if I mist my paper with a little water before embossing it loosens up the fibers in the paper and it embosses beautifully without any cutting!  One the second card, I applied ink to my embossing folder before inserting my paper for a different look.  The first one is my favorite.

Your next stop on our Everything ABC’S blog Hop is Linda Norman- Scrappy Therapy.

Dance Treat Tubes

Dance Treat Tubes by Wendy Kessler

I made these goodies for this weekend’s dance competition.  I used the Cricut to cut the letters (not sure which cartridge) and the Close to My Heart Aspire stamp set.  The treat tubes are also CTMH.  I attached the letters with micro glue dots and they are holding well.  The grosgrain ribbon is attached with a 1-inch glue line to hold it in place and then tied.  Names will be written on the back of the dancer tag.  My first filler choice was Sixlets in the dance colors (available at Walmart) but my daughter preferred Skittles.  Another option would be to fill them with a variety of dance items like bobby pins, hair ties, etc.
