This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Sheila Bennett.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Caprice Paper Packet (retired), Caprice Level 1 Stickease (retired), Recollections Floral Embellishments, Color Me Crazy Large Flower, and unknown button.
I can’t say I’ve been hoarding this paper, I just haven’t gotten around to using it. I think the paper and pictures go together as far as my feelings towards them – they just needed to get scrapped. They weren’t a special event or extra pretty paper, just every day things that I want to include to show a reflection of real life.
Now hop on over to Janet McCormick!

Today I’ve got another entry in the New Product Blog Hop. I’m on a roll!
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Paper Fundamentals Basic Assortment, Ariana Paper Packet (zip strips), Ivy Lane Paper Packet (zip strips), Glitter Shimmer Trim and Sequin Dot Assortment (from the Ivy Lane Cardmaking Workshop Kit), Ivy Lane Assortment, Ivy Lane Scrapbooking Workshop Stamp Set, Inspiration Flourishes Stamp Set, Cashmere Cardstock, Inks (Smokey Plum and Olive), Scallop Border Punch, and Cricut Artiste Collection.
I was inspired by this sketch which is great for using zip strips! And the Ariana and Ivy Lane strips go well together. (Zip Strips are the added part of 12×12 B&T sheets, usually with product info on one side and CTMH utilizes these by making the opposite side decorative.) The Paper Fundamentals was the perfect foundation. Again, I used leftovers from the Workshop on the Go Kits.

Welcome to this month’s blog hop! This time around we are using the spray pen and hope you find lots of inspiration for this technique. If you have already started the hop, you will be coming from Michelle.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Unknown Paper Packet (retired), Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired), Colonial White Cardstock, Hollyhock Cardstock, Create-a-Shade Paint, Spray Pen, Hollyhock Reinker, Cricut Artiste Collection, Just Blooms Paper Shapes – Petals (retired), and Colonial White Brads. Sketch from Sketch Savvy.
I used the spray pen in a very simple way but it is my favorite. I used it to spray the background paper of my layout. This is a great way to add a touch of color and pattern without using patterned paper. I also sprayed the Just Bloom Flowers, some lighter and some darker for variety. For my mixture, I filled the pen with water up to the 7th line, then added reinker up to the next line, and added 4 drops of the Create-a-Shade Paint. I always add the Create-a-Shade Paint because I like the extra little sparkle that it adds.
Hop on over and see what Sheila had created for you next!
Here are a list of all the participants:
