Ruby Rock-it Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Happy Friday, Hoppers!
Let's get this party started!

You should be arriving here from the Ruby Rock-it blog.
I was very inspired by the blocking in all of these PL layouts that I am seeing lately so I blocked my project similarly.  

To get this wonderful colour on my kraft chipboard alphas, I first sprayed them with Smooch Spritz and then blended the spritz more evenly with a foam sponge. When dry, I applied some Smooch Glitz on top of the color for a bit of shine and sparkle :) This layout uses products mostly from the Carnival Queen line.



I have been so excited by this paper company that I couldn't stop just yet and went on to complete another LO. As you can see, I used lots of bits from all sorts of lines:
Carnival King, Cook (mini line) & Kinda Krafty.

I used the chevron design (the red & white paper) to poe holes through my paper and then stitched them to form a sewn arrow like pattern. BTW, did you notice the tree leaves are made from different sized Fiskars cloud punches? I punched them out and then inked them a bit around the edges for definition. I cut the trunk out by hand. I really like how this embellishment turned out.




If you get lost along the way, here is the blog order:
