RB Sangria Blog Hop!

Welcome to the CTMH Rose Blossom's Blog Hop!  This time we are featuring Sangria!  No, not the drink (though that does sound rather refreshing at the moment!)-- the beautiful selection of papers from Close to My Heart.  I absolutely love the palette of colors and the patterns in these papers. Sooo "Fall!" If you came from Cathy's blog, you are traveling in the right direction. :)

I wanted to do something that would show off all of those pretty colors and patterns and pulled out the always sweet "Dahlia fold" to create a centerpiece for my cards. I hope you like them!

The Dahlia fold is so fun and a great way to show off pretty paper.  Here's a great tutorial if you'd like to try it for yourself!
Now hop on over to Kim Spark's blog, where I know you will find a fabulous project to inspire you!
Until next time! xoxo

October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH Rose Blossom October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  This month we are featuring a really fun set of Christmas stamps called "Twinkle."  If you came from Mary's blog, I'm sure you've seen some amazing artwork already!

I am already thinking of Christmas-- with 8 nieces and nephews to purchase for, I start shopping early. :)  Actually, most of them are teenagers now, which makes it a little easier... all they want is money and gift cards. So, I kept this creation super simple, since I'll be making so many of them!  I created gift card holders using the Artiste cartridge.  I cut the cards out of Kraft and used the new CTMH holiday paper called White Pines.  A few cuts from the cartridge, a bit of this beautiful paper and some pretty ribbon and all I need to add are the gift cards.  Voila-- gifts for all of those nieces and nephews, DONE! :)

Now hop on over to Kim's blog to see what gorgeous project she has to share!
