Simply Inspired Blog Hop--Cloud 9

It's time again for a blog hop! And this round, we are all doing a variation on the Cloud 9 kit, Close to My Heart's special for National PaperCrafting Month.  If you came here from Melissa's blog, you are on the right path. The blog hop is a great big circle, but if you happen to get lost along the way, please click here for a complete list of participants.  And now, on to my project!

Because Cloud 9 is a card making kit, of course you want to make the cards. There is enough product to make five designs, two of each card. However, what to do with the leftovers when you are done? I decided to use them in a My Crush book.



My Crush books are such a fun way to scrapbook quickly and easily and you don't need much product to do it as the pages are already very cute. Here's the blank pages.



I just added my photos and some leftover paper, washi tape and glitter tape from the Cloud 9 kit. I wrapped cardstock with the gold washi tape to get the larger pieces on the left page. And I cut some additional hearts to stamp on and to accent using the Cricut Artiste cartridge.



This was a lot of fun and literally only took me about ten minutes to pull together. And aren't my daughter and my nieces the cutest things?


I hope I've inspired you. And now on to Rebecca's blog to see what she came up with using Cloud 9. Enjoy!
