National Scrapbooking Day Celebration Blog Hop

Welcome to our National Scrapbooking Day Celebration Blog Hop! I hope you will hop along with us and check out all of the amazing artwork created using the special products in the National Scrapbooking Day collection.  These products are available only until the end of May and while supplies last.

  If you arrived here from Miss Carrie's Blog, then you are in the right spot.  The blog hop is a big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, Melinda's Blog has a complete list of all the participating consultants.  
 There are about 14 Close To My Heart Makers/Consultants sharing their creations using this National Scrapbooking Day collection and other great CTMH products on their blogs. 

 I love, love, love these kits and am so excited to create other artwork with them.  For today I chose to use the exclusive stamp set from the Sending You Hugs Cardmaking Workshop Kit

I decided to try my hand at creating a Bendy card for the first time after watching a tutorial Gail Gross did.  

I love how it turned out and it is so easy to create.

I just love this cute Koala and the thoughtful look on her face.  The background paper is from the Eat Play Love paper collection.  Sentiment is stamped in Archival Black ink and the edges of the card & fern paper are inked in Fern ink.

I stamped her in Intense Black ink and coloured her using the True Black, Coral, Light Green,  Pale Pink and  Brown Grey Tri-Blend markers.  I put thin 3-D foam tape under just her arms & chin.

I scored the middle of the card so it can lay flat to mail but you can bend it to stand up.  Look at all that dimension.  The white cardstock base is 5.5" x 4.25", pattern paper is 5.25" x 4", black cardstock is 6" x 1"(scored at 0.25" on each end.), and fern cardstock is 5.5" x 0.75". 

I hope you enjoyed this card and I would love to hear what you think of it.

Now "Hop" on over to Gina's Blog to see what she has created! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the National Scrapbooking Day Celebration collection is only available until the end of May!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can purchase these products!  If you are in Canada and don't have a consultant I would be happy to help you.

Blessings,  Kim
