So join us on this Free to Be Me Blog Hop and get ready to be inspired.  If you landed here from Sheila Bennett's blog you are on the right track!  If you are just getting started, don't worry.  The hop is a big circle so once you get back to me, you will know you have completed the hop!  If you get lost along the way you can check in HERE and get the entire list of hoppers.

I created a couple of layouts and several cards with the Free To Be Me paper.  I'll share the two layouts here.  I'll share the cards I created over the next couple of days.  For both layouts I used the Artbooking Cricut cartridge for my titles and some images.

This layout is from Sketch #12 in the Make It From Your Heart Vol II. I used the Feathers (C1584) stamp with with Sunset, Bamboo and Lagoon inks.  I just love how this stamp coordinates with this paper! The word "awsome" is cut from one of the zip strips of the Free To Me Paper pack! And check out the washi tape!  The colors match so well, but the Gold Polka Dot washi (Z1920) is a perfect match for the gold polka dot vellum paper!

My 2nd layout above uses Pattern #14 in the Make It From Your Heart Vol II also.   On this layout I used the Lagoon Houndstooth Washi (Z1850) and Teal Shimmer Trim (Z1918) to accent my layout.  The colors work so well with the paper!  I also added White Marquee Enamel Shapes (Z1961) to this layout.  I've had these cute shapes for a while and just now got around to using them!
I hope my layouts have inspired you to purchase your own Free To Be Me Paper pack!  Remember, it is only available until May 31 (or While Supplies Last!).  Contact your consultant or if you don't have one, you can order directly from my website at

Now hop on over to Jody Gustafson's blog and see what she has created!
