My Love Affair With Paper ~ "Use Your Stash" Blog Hop

This month, those of us participating in the "Use Your StashBlog Hop dug into our paper stash to show you our "Love Affair With Paper."  So you will see a wide variety of projects and colors while visiting each post along the Blog Hop.             

If you have come here from NJ Stamping Queenyou are right on track for the "Use Your Stash" Blog Hop.  Blog Hopping is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one, or visit each blog from the list at the end of this post.  


Actually I did not dig very far into my paper stash, just deep enough to find the Year>>Noted paper which was a special during the month of January for National Papercrafting Month. Since shiny gold stickers were an accent for this kit, I used Princess Gold embossing powder for the stamp image which is from the Wanderful Scrapbooking WOTG kit.  For a bit more shine, some Gold Shimmer Trim was used along with some Baker's Twine which includes a gold thread.  This month's enTWINEd challenge on the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog provided inspiration along with Freshly Made Sketches (FMS174).     
  



Now "Hop" on over to Wendy's My Scrapbooking Blog for more projects using our paper stash.   
All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

    1. Thanks Amy. It's a bit difficult to take a good photo of the embossing because of the sheen.
