National Scrapbooking Day Celebration Blog Hop


National Scrapbooking Month is May and Close To My Heart is going to celebrate EARLY by hosting two fun LIVE events on their Facebook Page on April 30 and May 1.  They have put together some FABULOUS project that can be purchased and created right along with them during these events!   Choose from 2 different Scrapbooking projects, 2 cardmaking projects and a fun 4x4 mini album!  Each project comes with the materials you need PLUS an EXCLUSIVE stamp set.  The guides for these projects can be downloaded from my website.  (See the "Download Guide" link just under the "Add to Cart" button for the item you are purchasing).

In celebration of this fun event, we are bringing you a blog hop that features other items we have created using the materials from the projects!  This will give you some ideas for additional things you can create!  If you have arrived here from Kim Loewen's blog, you are on the right track!  If you are just getting started, look for the next blog to hop to at the bottom of my post.  When you get back to me, you will know you completed the hop!

My project comes from Cheerful Humor.   This bundle creates 20 cards (2 each of 10 designs) with some fun snarky comments.  When I cut the papers for this project, instead of cutting for 2 of each design I cut just 1 so that I could have lots of extra paper to design my own cards.  

I just received my Make It From Your Heart Volume 5 book so I couldn't wait to use some new patterns for cards!  I created the following two cards using this book.  (This How To is a MUST HAVE!!)  Since the sentiments in this set are fun and snarky I thought the card design should be funky.  I chose this design because of the design that that little squares make in the center of the card.  This is pattern #25. 

My second card is based on Pattern #29.  I used the circle thin cut from my Circle Shaker Thin Cuts.
