Joyful Stars Blog Hop - Sarita

   Welcome to the Joyful Starts Blog Hop.  
If you are coming from Cindy's blog you are in the right place.
I'm not a big fan of bold pattern papers.  This Clean and Simple Girl just avoids them most of the time.  However, last year I took a pattern paper card making class online with Online Card Classes.  When I saw the new Sarita papers from Close To My Heart I knew right away I was making cards with these wild things.
Here are two of the many cards that I've created using this paper pack:
The first one I just cut out some of the diamond pattern paper and glued them to the card base.  This takes a very bold paper and tones it down a little bit.  

The second card cuts the busy chevron paper into a more manageable size and I am in love with the way it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!  The kits I'm offering this month are using this fun fall paper pack so come back and see what other things I've created with this bold and beautiful paper!  Now it is time to hop over to Meredith's blog and see what she created for you this month!  

Happy Crafting,

  1. I like how you cut out part of the pattern paper on the first card. Just love that Sarita paper.

  2. Elizabeth, you created gorgeous cards! Very creative how you cut out the diamonds from Sarita paperpacket and use it as borders. Love it! Thank you for the inspirations :)

  3. So unique to cut down the pattern. Love the idea! :o)

  4. I love both cards but I especially like the way you cut the diamonds from the paper for the first card.
