National Paper Crafting Month - Cloud 9

Welcome to our National Paper Crafting Month Blog Hop!  If you have come from Adeline Brill's Blog you are on the right track!

This month's special is the Cloud 9 Cardmaking Kit!  When you spend $35 you can add this Cloud 9 Cardmaking Kit for just $15! (retail value $46).  It's an awesome deal because you get everything you need to create 10 cards (2 each of 5 designs).  This kit comes with cards and envelopes, instruction brochure, a sheet of Lagoon and Honey cardstock, a sheet of beautiful B&T paper, a stamp set that coordinates with the Artiste Cartridge, die-cuts that match the stamp images, AND you also get 3 brand new yet to be released FULL products - Teal Shimmer Trim, Triangle Studs and Gold Polka Dot Washi Tape!  HOW EXCITING!!

Each consultant participating in this hop has taken this kit to the next level and created something unique from the kit!   Instead of making 2 of each of the cards, I made one of each design and then I used the leftover paper and supplies to create 5 additional cards of my own!   I'll share each of these here and will also provide the cutting dimensions in case you'd like to recreate them too!
