Everything ABC's Blog Hop

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter "C". This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their "C" element will be featured in their post.

If you came from Amber's blog, Scrapper's Therapy, then you're on the right track!

For my letter "C" project, I chose a brand new paper pack from Close to My Heart -- Chantilly!!  I was inspired by a layout in our new Idea Book on page 19. 

The base of the 12 x 12 layout is Champagne cardstock.  The basis of this layout comes from our Reflections Scrapbook program, page 22 called Title Topper - Basic. I kept some of the elements the same but did change a few things.  The sentiments come from the "4 My Friend" and "Fabulous You" stamp sets.  The frames for the sentiments come from our "Frame Flair" stamp set.  "Frame Flair" actually coordinates with our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  That means that you don't have to hand cut the shapes -- the stamps fit in the shapes.  The border on the bottom page was cut from Cotton Candy cardstock.  I then stamped one of the frames on the border using Cotton Candy ink.

Art Philosophy Images Oval: page 62, E2, < Oval5 > cut at 2 1/4"
Square:  page 63, E3, < Square5 > cut at 2"
Circle:  page 51, D1, < Circle4 > cut at 2 3/4"
