New Annual Inspirations (aka Idea Book) Artwork Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog.  You should have come here from Michele Rowley's blog  I used the new paper packet Whimsy Assortment that is part of the Paper Fundamentals (p. 174). I also used the coordination Whimsy Cardstock  Combo Assortment pack.  The new papers are beautiful and this pack is rich with texture and design as one side is glossy with the same design on both sides.  

I used the one of our fantastic Cricut cartridges to create this layout.  I used the Artbooking cartridge with the dial size set at 3.

This card uses a paper tearing technique and I created my own design on the background paper using the Flight of the Arrows stamp set.

This card features washi tape and another Cricut cartridge:  Art Philosophy.  Tried to keep this one simple.

My last card uses a monochromatic color scheme.  I used our corner rounder to create the scalloped edge.  The greeting comes from The Happy Couple stamp set.

I hope you enjoy the artwork.  Now it's time to hop on over to Carla's blog at  to see her artwork.  Enjoy!


  1. Great job on all of these! My fave is the congrats card!

  2. Love your congrats card. But I have to admit the anniversary card is so much better in person. You did a great job on all of your artwork.

  3. I really like the way you used the negative space for the tree...whenever I cut a shape, I save the negative, but never seem to make anything with it!

  4. I loved the negative space too! Such a nice touch. And I loved all the different colors in my hexagons. Thank you!
