CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Crazy About Cardstock

Thank you for joining us for this month's Technique Hop, "Crazy About Cardstock", where we are featuring Close To My Heart's cardstock. Did you know that the cardstock released on August 1st is now duo-toned?! That's right! That means you get twice as many options for the same amount of money. You can see the various shades in all four color palettes.

And my favorite...Adventure

If you are coming here from Annemarie's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a list of participants at the bottom of this post, if you were to get lost along the way.

I hosted a retreat this past weekend, with a birthday theme, and decided to use primarily cardstock in the design of this layout.

The layout was kept simple to serve as a "goodie" for all who attended, allowing them to preserve their memories from the weekend.
The area where my name is located, served as the name tent for their creative spots. It was fun to allow a space for it on their layout, identifying the date and location of the retreat.
This new stamp set, "Eat Cake & Celebrate", was incorporated through the stamping of the title, the banner and the cake image. ShinHan markers were used to colored in the images. The party hat came from the stamp set, "Sweet Birthday".

I know you are bound to find creative ways the ladies have used the cardstock in the artwork creations so continue to make your way around the hop. We'd love it if you did! Head on over to Haley's Blog and be sure to leave a comment before you do. I always enjoy hearing from you!

Make it a great day!
