Today I chose to share a set of cards created with our NEW paper pack, Hopscotch

This paper pack is so FUN, and it makes me happy & smile whenever I see it! J

The colors that coordinate with Hopscotch are…Falxen, Glacier, Indian Corn Blue, Ponderosa Pine, Smoothie & Sunset. Isn’t it beautiful? J  

I also used one of the NEW stamp sets shown in the SE1…it’s called Happy to Be Friends.  

Take a peek at this stamp set. 
I can’t WAIT to use all these sayings and pair these words together to create different phrases!

  Did you notice the little sparkly bird & butterfly on my cards?  These cuties come from our NEW Embellishments called Puffies!
Puffies include ninety puffy glitter stickers in assorted shapes and 5 different colors.

I used 2 more NEW products from the SE1 book…can you find them in the picture above?  

Take a look at the Glacier cardstock - I used the Diamond 5x7 Embossing Folder to turn this cardstock into it’s own designer paper.  There are FOUR new embossing folders in this mini-book --which means we now have a GRAND total of 13 BEAUTIFUL embossing designs!!! 

I also used the FUN, NEW Extra Thick Twine!  This twine comes  in 2 colors….Pixie pink or Flaxen- the color I used. 

Now "Hop" on over to our team leader and fabulous creator Dana Kessler’s Blog to see her work!  Be sure to visit ALL the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting idea.

  We LOVE to hear any feedback you’d like to share as well, so feel free to take a moment & leave a comment.

Blessings to you for a WONDERFUL day!!!
