Believe-Our Paper Trail Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Paper Trail Blog Hop! You are on the right trail if you arrived here from Lynne's blog, Field's Finery. This month, you can enjoy the playful colors of holiday red, sweet leaf, sky, topiary, and white daisy as we create with papers from the Believe collection.

I must admit that I have been having such fun with the latest little box from our My Creations collection and had to pull one out to use for this month's blog hop! It's a small card box that can go from simple white bookboard to a fully embellished piece of art in two shakes of a lamb's, er, reindeer's tail!!! Add a few small cards or perhaps a collection of gift tags and you have a treasured gift.

I will admit that with such a fun collection of papers, it was hard to decide which to use. My solution? Simply create two card boxes! While the box above has a holiday vibe, the box to the right is more generic. Both still feature buttons and stick pins from the bling assortment, a fun flower and swirl from the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection, a few sparkles from the blue-green collection, and a bit of Stardust glitz glitter gel.

It's simple to make the Believe paper collection work for you for holiday and more! Now hop on over to Mary's Blog, Road to Peace of Mind or Escape? to see just what "Believable" creations she has to share! Enjoy!

Roxie Rocks!

It takes only a bit of clever creativity to go from a journal cover made with Sonoma papers  to this version using papers from the Roxie collection. The pattern is the same and with shapes and stamps from the Cricut Art Philosophy collection, the project is simply fabulous! Watch next week for two more journal covers which will complete our four seasons project and watch for workshop dates so that you can create your own! Enjoy

It's Elemental...

Rising Hearts=A Team of Extraordinary Consultants...

Yes, indeed, my team rocks and during September, I had the opportunity to share a variety of artwork projects with them at our team stamp camps. This card, featuring the papers from the Elemental collection, is one of twenty-four that can be made with just one Level 2 packet of paper. It was so-o-o-o-o much fun to create and share. Look closer to see that we also used fun corrugated stars, mocha opaques, and fun foundry metal pins.

Stay tuned for additional cards from this project. Enjoy!
