CM Valentine Blog Hop

You have reached the fifth stop on the Creative Memories Valentine Blog Hop.   My fellow CM Advisors and I are sharing some ideas and inspiration featuring the new Watercolor Love collection!  FBHeaderWatercolorLove

If you’re hopping in order you’ve arrived from Diana’s blog and at the end of my post I’ll send you on your way to Fran’s blog.  Be sure to visit each blog and finish up on the CM blog where, if you leave a comment, you’ll be eligible to win a fantastic prize bundle! (More info including the complete list of Blog Hop stops is at the bottom of this post.)

Watercolor Love – new this month!


Being the Mom of 2 boys I don’t get too many opportunities to use feminine papers in my scrapbooks.  Blues, greens, browns – my pages overrunneth with those colors but pink – not so much.  

That is about to change!  This collection is obviously great for weddings and Valentine’s/Love themed pages but I have plans for all sorts of layouts using these fun papers.  I can see using these gorgeous patterns with photos of our garden, summer fun and lots of family photos.  I have many favorites that aren’t part of a specific event but ones I still want to include in our albums.  Like this one:
CM Valentine Blog Hop

Items used for this layout:
Fall In Paper Pack (background wood grained paper – love this!!)
Watercolor Love Paper Pack – Paterned Paper
Shades of Red Designer Cardstock  – dark red used for all mats and tiny hearts on envelopes
Shape Maker System & Square Cartridge –envelopes
Border Maker System & Heart Chain Cartridge -hearts on envelopes
ABC/123 Black Stickers  - Title
12” Trimmer
7” Personal Trimmer
All Purpose Scissors
Regular & Mini Tape Runner

To make the mini envelopes: punch a square using the Shape Maker System and Square Cartridge.  Fold 3 of the corners to the center and tack down with a little adhesive from your Tape Runner.  Add a “leftover” heart punched with the Border Maker System and the Heart Chain Cartridge.  Adhere this tiny heart with your Mini Tape Runner.CM Valentine Blog Hop

To help the Watercolor Love papers stand out from the background I matted them with solid cardstock and also fussy cut the bottom of both layers with my All Purpose Scissors (so glad they’re back!!)CM Valentine Blog Hop
