CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop featuring Color-Ready Kraft Borders

This month’s Spotlight Blog Hop is using the Kraft Color-Ready Borders by Close to My Heart.  There are so many things you can do with these borders.  You can ink them different colors, use them in different lengths, layer them, and use them in combination with other embellishments like sparkles, pearls, and ribbon.

The hop makes a full circle so if you are starting here just continue until you make your way back.  If you have already started then you should be coming from Nikka’s Blog.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Mistletoe Level 2 Paper Pack, Mistletoe Level 2 Assortment, Pearl Opaques, Color-Ready Kraft Borders, Old World Alphabet stamp set, New England Ivy Ink, and Cranberry Ink.  Page Maps Sketch – October 2009

Hey sis, you were right – the Old World Alphabet is awesome!  It’s one that I didn’t care for from the look but after using it I am in love!  For my layout, I used Cranberry and New England Ivy inks and a sponge to color the Color-Ready Kraft Borders.  I layered them and added pearls to accent.

Your next stop is Vicki’s Blog.
