ABC Blog Hop - Letter "J"
For this hop we will be featuring the letter J. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their J element will be featured in their post.
If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.
If you came from Lauren Moore at CTMH Craftings, then you're on the right track!
I decided to combine several "J" elements to make a Birthday Card. I used Juniper cardstock, Jubilee paper and the Joyful Birthday stamp set! The yellow patterned paper (the focal design was handcut from the larger paper sheet) is from the Jubilee paper pack.
For the basic layout of my card, I used Pattern 23 in the Make it from Your Heart: Volume 2 book. If you aren't familiar with these books, they are a great resource for scrapbooking and card making. They provide you with a great starting point by showing general scrapbook and card patterns (and examples based on those patterns). I accented the card with a strip of Smoothie cardstock, and some rhinestones for bling!
