January Joyful Stars blog hop

WOW 2017! 

       Welcome to the Joyful Stars monthly blog hop!  We would like to inspire you to create using paper, inks and glue. We have so many great products to show you using Close to My Heart.  As you hop from one artist to another, may you enjoy what you see.  So look for the highlighted name at the bottom of each post and hop all the way around until you get back to here.  

This month I would like to share with you another Twist and  pop card using our brand new paper called Hello Lovely.  I have the directions for this card in my Oct 2016 blog  You can also see the Seasonal Expressions and check out the four new paper packs. One of them.... Hello Lovely X7216B comes with12 sheets of double sided designs, 2 of which are pre-printed 4x6 and 3x4 picture my life cards that are fun to use with this card.  I Stamped "Thinking of You" C1605 from Happy to be Friends on the front of the card.   (It looks better in person)

    Here is the inside of the card.                                                                                                                                                                              This is what the card looks like when it is fully opened up  
This picture goes with the first card, but look at how it
would look great with my Best Day card.  
 Using more of the cards I made another
card for my best friend's birthday.

I used different stamps for the inside of this card.
Paper hug comes from True Love (Operation Smile stamp set)
Happy Birthday to You comes from B1537 Birthday Sparkles.

The grey swirls is a Picture my life card cut in half

The first card was sent to my friend Nancy, I hope she enjoyed it and can show her customers how to use these extra goodies that come with each paper pack.  Now hop over to Nancy's blog and see what this talented friend has made.
See ya next month on the 10th. Have a Blessed New Year!
