Joyful Stars April Blog Hop

Happy Spring and welcome to the Joyful Stars April Blog Hop.  If you have arrived here from Joyce's Blog, then you are on the right track.  It is a circular blog, so you can start anywhere along the way and click through until you arrive back at the first blog.  Today, I made a Thank You card using a background from the CTMH Artbooking Cartridge.  This cartridge was primarily designed to make scrapbooking layouts and mini albums, however, many of the elements are great for other projects too.  You can see another card using an overlay from Artbooking HERE.

The white lattice is found on page 50 in the Artbooking Booklet.  It is cut at 8" Relative dial size and it fits perfectly across the card.  The other elements are found on the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  The flowers are on page 50 and cut at 1/2" in Sorbet Cardstock.  The leaves and branch are found on page 35.  The sentiment frame is on page 25 was cut at 1 1/2" in White Cardstock and then again at 1 3/4" in Glacier Cardstock. The stamp set is D1542 "For A Friend".

Thank you for joining us today.
Now it is time to hop to Krista's Blog to see her wonderful creation.
If you are local to Southeast PA, check out the events tab - there are two all day crops coming up.  One on May 2 to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day and one on June 6 to benefit the American Cancer Society Relay For Life.  Seating is limited so reserve your spot soon!
