{Neat & Tangled + Scrapbook Circle} Blog Hop Week: Day 3 + GIVEAWAYS!!!

I love using patterned paper whenever I can and I had so much fun putting together this scrappy card for Neat & Tangled's collaboration week with Scrapbook Circle. The October Kit: Mix Tape has so many beautiful papers, embellishments and, of course, the exclusive stamp set featuring Danielle's lovely handwriting!

On the card base, I used the b-sides of both the Admirable and Punch Card papers. Then I stitched the b-side of Lyrics and the a-side of Punch Card at the very top of the card to create a top anchor. The books were paper pieced with the a-side of Admirable and serve to "bookend" the column of sentiments created with BasicGrey stickers, Thankful cork shapes, mini word cutouts, Evalicious puffy stickers, and exclusive Neat & Tangled stamp set, Stories (additional giveaway below).

Even though I combined eight different kit elements on my card, I could easily make a dozen more cards with the supplies in this wonderful kit. It's a great value!

{Paper Smooches} Garland Dies

I'm back with a quick and easy card to showcase the Garland Dies from Paper Smooches. These dies are so much fun and I had the best time creating two garlands using the Christmas on Market 6x6 paper pad by My Mind's Eye. The foil details on these papers are to-die-for!! I think I need to purchase a second pad 'cause I love them so much!

The dove and sentiment are from the A Blessed Christmas stamp and die set, and the gold string is by May Arts. The dove was stamped (and coloured) directly on coordinating patterned paper so it would blend into the polka dotted paper on the card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
