Woven Strands Blog Hop

Welcome to the final stop on Club Scrap's August 2015 blog hop! If hopping along, you got here from Anne Marie's blog. To start at the beginning and see the list of all the blogs in this month's hop, check out the Club Scrap blog.

This month we are featuring the Woven Strands collection. You can check it out here

I've been away from blogging for a few months (and papercrafting, too, for that matter), but I have rediscovered my mojo and hope that it sticks around for a while. I find I'm much happier when I'm productively creating, don't you? 

The next few months are going to be quite busy for me. We have our daughter's wedding in October (and all the busyness that surrounds such events) plus my wonderful husband and I will celebrate 30 years of marriage in November. We just might be taking a trip abroad! I'm determined to send out Christmas cards this year, so I'm trying to get a head start before things kind of get crazy. I decided to use Woven Strands to try out an idea to make some simple layered cards with a bit of texture.

The papers are from Woven Strands, and the Merry Christmas stamp is from the Silent Night collection (2010). Here are the elements I used to create this card and two others (see final pic to see all three cards).

Cuttlebug embossing folder called Christmas Wreath

Impression Obsession die (could also use a circle die and hand-cut an ornament top)

Woven Strands collection stamps

Spellbinders circle die

(Excuse the glare on the blue ornament!)

Woven Strands cardstock--white, dark green, burgundy, blue
adhesive, fiber

Embossing folder
Circle dies (optional ornament die) 
Unmounted stamps: Silent Night, Woven Strands collection 
Club Scrap inks--sapphire, fuchsia, leaf, white

Hope you like my Christmas creations with Woven Strands. I plan to make some more and stock up for mailing in December. 

Well, that does it, hoppers! To revisit any of the blogs, go to the Club Scrap blog for the master list, and join us next month when we feature the September collection, Transformations.

Until next time!
