Paper Adventures Guest Designer | Hearts

Hello and welcome to my blog.

Today I am very excited to be the Guest Designer for Kelly Kent's amazing Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop. Thanks to Narelle Simm for inviting me. This is the second time I have been asked to join them and I am as excited today as I was the first time! It is so lovely to be part of this wonderful, supportive and connected group of demonstrators both in Australia and around the globe. Stampin' Up!® demonstrators are just the loveliest people.

The theme for this months Paper Adventures Blog Hop is "Hearts". February is all about Valentines Day and Love so hearts is a lovely theme for this month. It didn't take me long for an idea to pop into my head to create a Birthday card for a special friend using the stunning Always in my Heart bundle. She lives interstate and the sentiment was perfect for this card, which is now in the post as it is her birthday next week. I am sure she will love it!

I felt it best to keep the colour palette simple and let the Floral Heart die cut pieces do all the magic as they are so elegant and beautiful. The card base, die cut heart and floral heart is in Blushing Bride Card Stock. The die cut banner and background layer is in Basic White Card Stock. I stamped the sentiment on the die cut heart, then heat embossed using White Stampin' Emboss Powder and set with the heat tool. I layered the banner under the heart and positioned the Heart Charm on the left side with a Basic White bow from the Snail Mail Twine.  It was very simple to put together and I love the clean look of the card.

I have thoroughly enjoyed creating for the Paper Adventures Blog Hop and I hope you like my project too! I am sure it will be a hit with my friend as she loves my handmade cards.

I am so looking forward to seeing what each of the Paper Adventures Team creates with the hearts theme. Make sure that you click on the next button to keep hopping. Next up on the hop is the lovely Narelle Simm. She is sure to have a wonderful project to share with you today.

Thanks again to the Paper Adventures Team for their kind invitation to join them as Guest Designer this month. I am really honoured to join them all.

Happy Crafting lovely people!
