I LOVE the colors that come in this Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit and adored the pre-cut hearts in this kit.  While this kit is a CARDMAKING kit…of COURSE there are many other ways to use the content of this kit! J

So…off I went thinking about how I could use these hearts in a different way.  
Here is the 12x12 page I created …

Did you notice???  I covered the hearts with BOTH kinds of “tape” that are included in the Cloud Nine Cardmaking Kit….FUN!!! J

CTMH has created a BRAND NEW color in our shimmer trim collection - TEAL!!!  I adore this color!!

I covered the 2nd pre-cut heart in our NEW gold dotted washi tape!!  Yes, you guessed it - CTMH has also debuted a NEW washi tape!!!  Wahoo!!

I chose to cut out two "Love" sayings from the Artiste cartridge at 2 1/4".  I cut it once in Lagoon cardstock & once in Crème Brulee cardstock.  

I then filled in my “o” & “e” with gold dotted washi tape & popped the Lagoon "love" on top of the other one!! J
