Red, White and Blue ~ "Use Your Stash" Blog Hop

For the month that we celebrate Independence Day, using the colors red, white, and blue from our stash seemed appropriate for the "Use Your StashBlog Hop.          

If you have come here from the Stampologistyou 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.  


This great compass image from the Wanderful WOTG stamp set finally got to be used, along some nice arrow images from the same set.  Even though the Cranberry patterned paper is from the winter themed Snowhaven kit, it pairs nicely with Pacifica cardstock and ink for a patriotic look.  Following the sketch for Pattern #28 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 2, a strip of Arrow Washi Tape and mini staples add more detail to the card.        


Now "Hop" on over to Show and Tell, with Michelle for more red, white, and blue projects.   

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

Happy Everything (Operation Smile)

Welcome to our Happy Everything Blog Hop, brought to you by the same ladies who participate in the monthly Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop.  When you purchase this stamp set, Close To My Heart will donate $3 of the proceeds to Operation Smile.  Since its founding in 1982, Operation Smile has performed over 220,000 surgical procedures to correct facial deformities in children.  It only takes an hour for volunteer medical teams to perform these life-altering surgeries that will give children confidence for a lifetime.      

If you arrived here from Clearly Cards, you are hopping through our circle of Close To My Heart consultants sharing their projects using the Happy Everything stamp set.  


The little bee in the Happy Everything stamp set was just too adorable not to use.  He is flying along on a piece of White Daisy cardstock, and is paired with papers from the Wanderful kit.  Some gold embellishments complete the card, which is based on Pattern #24 in Make It From Your Heart Volume 1.       



Please visit Wendy's My Scrapbooking Blog to continue along our Blog Hop featuring the Happy Everything stamp set.
