Scor-Pal/American Crafts Blog Hop


I have I got a treat in store for you today!
It's time for another collaboration Blog Hop with Scor-Pal and today we are joining with American Crafts to bring you a fabulous collection of projects sure to get you crafting!

You should have come to me from Amy Heller's blog, if not be sure to go back to the start at either the American Crafts blog or the Scor-Pal blogso that you don't miss a spot on the hop.


All my cards were made with the fabulous Gardenia Paper and Embellishments collection that you can get in many places including A Cherry On Top.
Of course for all my scoring I used my trusty Scor-Pal.
I also used my favorite Accucut grass die and My Favorite Things Fence die.


My first card is a Center Stair Step card and here is the view from the front.


Here you can see the steps from the side.


I added a decorated message mat to the back view of the card (you know me, never a side undecorated)


My next card is a simple Gatefold with a coordinating Belly Band to hold it closed.


Inside is another decorated message mat, all the fabulous embellishments made it so easy to create with this collection.


I added one of the gorgeous 3D accents to the Belly Band instead of my usual rosettes and I love how it looks.


My 3rd card is a stand Easel fold card that I used to create a cute garden scene.


I die cut a fence from the Spring word patterned papers and added a message mat with one of the premade rosettes from the embellishment selection.


I die cut a tree from my old Sizzix die to match the die cut grass, I love how the striped paper makes it look sort of funky and retro.


My 4th and final card is a Tri-Panel with a punched graduated top.


Here is the card open to show all 3 panels.


I didn't neglect the back and added a coordinating paper.
I used a fence border punch along the top to keep with the gardening theme.


The front panel.


The center panel.


The 3rd panel features a message mat for that personal greeting.

Now it's on to the next stop and that is Leah Farquharson to see what she has made for you to see!
And remember if you get lost along the way just hop back to either the American Crafts blog or the Scor-Pal blog to get back on track.
I'd love to hear what you thought of my projects so please leave me a comment!
Have fun hopping!
Katie
