Paper Crafts Magazine Presents: Card Creations 9 Blog Hop

Each time Paper Crafts Magazine releases an issue, I eagerly await its arrival. I know it’s going to be full of great projects and wonderful inspiration. Sitting on the couch with a new issue and a coffee is my time to relax and enjoy.

The recently released Card Creations vol. 9 did nothing but exceed my expectations. I always love Card Creations as it spans every holiday and occasion you could think of. An entire years worth of inspiration. This special issue is available at most crafting and bookstores and you can also find it online in the Paper Crafts store here.

Check out the cover. Fresh, fun and you don’t even have to open the magazine to be inspired.

Card Creations 9 was so much fun to work on. I love being able to create so many different styles and occasions in one call. The hardest part of it was the deadline. I just didn’t want to stop creating for it!

Today I’m excited to be one of 9 designers asked to be part of the Card Creations 9 blog hop top. That means 9 new and never seen before cards inspired by the cover of Card Creations 9.  I can’t wait to see them all!

Here’s mine…

I love all the white on the cover of Card Creations 9. I was especially loving the white and kraft color combo of Windy’s card and all the wonderful texture.

My design uses some strips of self-adhesive Hero Arts lace to break up the design and add texture. Between the strips also created a great place to stamp my sentiment.


Supplies: kraft cardstock by Bazzill, twine, self adhesive white lace by  Hero Arts, Thank You for Being My Friend stamp set by Hero Arts, Jet Black Archival Ink by Ranger, flower by Prima Marketing, Canvas Chipboard by Prima, Crystal Trinket Pins by Maya Road
