Year >> Noted, National Papercrafting Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Papercrafting Month Blog Hop! If you came from Michelle's Blog, then you're in the right place. If you got lost somewhere along the way, then you can find the list of hoppers in Melinda's Blog.





January is National Papercrafting Month, and Close to My Heart is having another fabulous promo! Here are the details from the flyer:
During the month of January, with a qualifying purchase of $50, you are eligible to purchase the exclusive Year >> Noted paper kit (which has a retail value of over $24 USD/$27 CAD) for only $5—that’s over 80% off retail! Or, for an additional $5, you can order the Year >> Noted paper kit with an accompanying My Creations ™kraft mini book. The paper kit for both options includes a C-size stamp set, stickers, cardstocks, and B&T Duos™papers, all specially designed to coordinate with the My Creations™kraft mini book so you can have a yearlong scrapbooking experience. This means you will receive over $34 USD/$37 CAD worth of product for only $10 if you purchase the kit with the accompanying mini book! But the fun doesn’t end there—included on the sticker sheet, you will find a large golden seal.

I decided to have a diary of sorts for 2015. I added some Snowhaven paper, Heartstrings zip strip, and Sorbet, Cranberry, Lagoon and Glacier cardstock into the mix. I also made a couple of 3"x4" and a 4"x6" PML cards for the mini album's pockets. I will be making more in the coming days/weeks/months since this mini is more of a work in progress.

The outside cover features some cutouts using the Triangle Border punch, and a strip of Gold Shimmer Trim along the spine.


For the inner cover, I had cut a library card pocket from Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge at 4", and the "2015" is from Art Philosophy, cut at 1 1/2". The border is from Artbooking, cut at 6", real dial size on, and trimmed. For my embellishments, I added some Silver Sequins Assortment, and the same goes for the January card. The Valentine's card had the addition of a heart puffy from Stuck On You Puffies. The couple icon is from Artbooking, cut at 1 3/4" with real dial size on.




March is my birthday month, and aquamarine is my birth stone, so I decided to make a PML card in various shades of Lagoon and aqua. The PML card was embellished with butterflies from Junebug Puffies, Aqua Dots, Silver Shimmer Trim and Lagoon Hearts Washi Tape.
