Scattered Hearts August Blog Hop

Welcome to the Scattered Hearts Blog Hop for the month of August!  You are probably coming from Jean McNulty's blog.  Make sure you hop all the way through and see everyone's beautiful artwork.  You will find plenty of new inspiration to get your mojo going.

Have you seen CTMH's new Annual Inspirations?  You are going to love all of the new products and all of the great ways to mix and match your papers.  With the release of the new book comes the new color of the year - BASHFUL!  It is so pretty and you are going to love creating with it.  Our cardstock is now two-toned; one side is a lighter than the other.  Now you have even more color options to play with!
Here is a fun frame I created for my co-worker's daughter's birthday party.  The back ground was created using CTMH's watercolors doing a little splatter effect with bashful and black.  Fun and easy for sure!  

My flowers were created with CTMH's Flower Market Cricut Cartridge and the new bashful card stock.  I also used CTMH's clear shimmer brush to add some sparkle and then sponged the flowers with my new Bashful ink to add dimension. 

Gold foil card stock was used to create some of the leaves, love it! 

Bashful Pearls were used for the centers of my flowers and around the Happy Birthday thin cut. 

And just like that you can have a beautiful keep sake that will make a great gift for any occasion!  

You can purchase this cartridge here or from your consultant.

Next stop on your hop is Lori Williams.  Have fun and make sure to leave us a comment on our pages.  TY

Till next time, happy crafting!
