Everything ABC's Blog Hop Letter V...

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

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

If you came here from Lauren Moore's CTMH Craftings then you're right on track!

My Inspiration for "V" was Close To my Heart's New My Reflections Paper Collection "La Vie En Rose."  From the minute I saw it, I new it was going to be one of my favorites!  I created and demoed this Valentine's inspired One Sheet Wonder Mini Album at a Team Retreat back in September and knew it would be perfect for this HOP.  This cute little ditty provides NINE Pockets for you to add pictures, journaling, gift cards, tickets, etc.  This project features 2 Top Pockets and 1 Side Pocket in which I used our New Pomegranate Cardstock as a base and 6 Inside Pockets with Daisy White and Black Cardstock bases.  Kick it up a notch with an array of embellishments and don't forget to use one of our zip strips...the "From me to YOU" fits perfectly on the cover.  How will you be Inspired?

For this project I used...
My Reflections La Vie En Rose Paper Packet (X7201B)
My Acrylics Your Own Kind Of Wonderful Stamp Set (D1627)
Exclusive Inks White Daisy Stamp Pad (Z2163)
Gold Foil Tape (Z3129)
Black Shimmer Trim (Z1809)
Bitty Sparkles (Z1263)
Gold Polka Dot Washi Tape (Z1920) available in our clearance
Just Blooms Flutter Paper Shapes (Z1463) available in our clearance

Here's a closer look at Close To My Heart's "La Vie En Rose" I love the clean look of the black & white patterns, the pop of color with the floral print and two of our hottest new colors Pomegranate & Poppy.
