Creatively Redeeming Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Welcome to Creatively Redeeming Treasures Close To My Heart Blog Hop!

If you are coming from Meredith's Blog, you are in the right place.

Today's theme is the Close to My Heart Sarita Paper Pack which is one of my favorites!  I love the bright vibrant colors and I think that this paper packet is one of the more versatile packets.  

I created two cards using Sarita.  

The first card I created is Christmas Card in preparation for our Christmas Card Making Day which is going to be a blast.  If you are in Southern PA, you are more than welcome to join us for this fun event.  Feel free to contact me or check out the Facebook link above.

All paper (pattern and solid) is from the Sarita Paper packet.  The stamp sets are Cityscape and Holiday Tags.  Specifically the Holiday Tags stamp set is extremely versatile and shapes for the tags can be cut out of the Exclusive CTMH Artiste Cartridge.  Of course, I used Silver Shimmer Trim, but I cut it in half for a thinner look.  

The next card I created using the Sarita Textiles.  At first I thought it was so strange and annoying to use fabric on a card or scrapbooking project.  But I decided to try it on this card and I love the look.  The fabric adds so much texture and dimension.  To adhere the fabric, I used Liquid Glass which is a very good adhesive.  I have also seen many other uses with textiles to make flowers and other 3-D items for a papercrafting project.  

I also used the Hippo & Sentiment from Wild Wonders, which is a set that I can't get enough of!  The Colors I used were Lagoon & Sunset.

Well, that about wraps it up.  If you would like to start back at the beginning, go to Elizabeth's Blog.  Thank you for hopping along with us and we hope to see you next month!
