Welcome to the Crafty Chicks Blog Hop - our theme this month is Back to School. If you are coming from Krysthle's blog you are in the right place!
I like to give gifts to my kids' teachers throughout the year but especially at the beginning of the year. Both my boys were excited about the teachers they got this year so we decided to thank them with some personalized cards.
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!
Close To My Heart is beginning a new video series to show you just how easy the Artbooking cartridge is to use. This cartridge is revolutionary in simplifying scrapbooking without having to give up the traditional page look plus adds easy mini albums for cute, quick and fabulous gifts!
