Crafty Jen Blog Hop

Hello & we're glad you're skipping along with us today!  You should have arrived here from Katty's blog.  We are so excited to be creating with Crafty Jen this month and we are loving her cut files.  I really had a hard time choosing which ones to work with!

Here's today's line up!  If you get lost while you're skipping along today just come back here and click over to the next blog in the line up.  We hope you enjoy the inspiration!

Sarah (That's me!)

For the blog hop today I made an 8.5x11 layout using an awesome background cut file from Crafty Jen.  Here it is:

I used a few pieces of paper from the new Maggie Holmes "Bloom" collection and a few pieces of ephemera and stickers also from the collection.  I used one piece of yellow patterned paper from Pink Paislee "C'est La Vie."  I backed a few of the flowers from the cut file with different colored papers and mounted it onto white textured card stock.

I layered a few pieces of paper and a piece of vellum behind the black and white 4x6 picture of my youngest daughter from last Easter.  I made a small embellishment cluster and stuck it on with a large gold paperclip.  I added a Forever Love Cork Heart and a yellow Felt-Fetti Heart.  I also stuck a Mini Clothes Pin in there too!

I added a few splats of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in gold and added Pink Lagoon and Peachy Sherbet sequins.  Here is another embellishment cluster, this one with a leather tassel!

I used a chipboard "Party" from Maggie Holmes "Confetti" collection along with gold glitter Thickers to make my title.  I added a few Kaisercraft rhinestones, stamped the date on a tag and I was done!  I hope you are enjoying the projects we've made for you today!

Items I used from the SMS shop:
