Thin Cuts Blog Hop


******   ******
**************************************
Welcome!  

A blog hop is just one big loop of fun and creative ideas. Glad you could join us today.  If you are coming from Darlys' blogyou're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Vickie's blog at the end of my post.  Each blog you visit will feature a link to continue following the hop.   If you get disconnected somewhere along the way, you can find a complete list of blog hop participants here.


Today you will find great artwork using various thin cuts from Close To My Heart.
You can find any of these thin cuts  through your Close To My Heart consultant 
or find them here.

I am a great fan of all of our thin cuts.  Today I am sharing a few different projects that I have created in the past month using various thin cut sets. The three sets I find myself using the most often are the Fancy Tag Thin Cuts, the Decorative Border Thin Cuts, and the Block Alphabet Thin Cuts. My  favorite paper crafting projects are scrapbook layouts, and even though these sets are some of the more expensive sets CTMH offers, I find that I really get my money's worth with these since I use them so often.

I often have complements left over after designing my scrapbook pages using each paper pack.  One of my recent goals has been to use up the scraps of paper and the extra complements right away rather than adding them to my stash.  In that effort, I made tags that could either be used on cards or some of my scrapbook layouts.  These tags were created with left overs from my Something Fierce Paper Suite.
Fancy Tag Thin Cuts







Here are the Valentine cards I made for two of my grandchildren using some of these tags.


The paper used for these cards was from the So Much Happy Paper pack.

On this card you also see some die cuts from the Decorative Borders Thin Cuts.


Finally, in an effort to use up the last of my paper from the So Much Happy pack,
this layout came to be using the Stitched Circles Thin Cuts, Block Alphabet Thin Cuts, and Paper Pals Thin Cuts. 


Thanks for stopping by today and seeing all the fun I have creating with the CTMH Thin Cuts. 
You can find all the various thin cuts CTMH offers here.

Close To My Heart Craft with Heart January 2019 - Wild Child Layout

All I can say, is WOW!

I just love watching Jana work through a layout.  I learn so much each time watching and listening to her brainstorm as she works.

Today, Jana is working with a page from the January Craft With Heart 2019 Kit - Something Fierce.  Take a few minutes to just sit back, enjoy and be inspired!




You can find out more about the Craft with Heart subscription program here.

Or you can find the Something Fierce Paper Pack and other parts of that paper suite here.


Happy Scrapping!
