Everything ABCs Blog Hop- P
Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter P. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their P element will be featured in their post.
If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy.
If you came from Jen's Creative Classroom then you're on the right track!
For my "P" I chose to focus on Pixie, one of the new ink colours that Close To My heart has released in the new Inspirations Catalogue. This is a beautiful, soft pink that lends itself well to many products.
Having two boys, I don't get to do many pink layouts, so I decided to do a scrapbook page of my birthday.
I started off with the Pixie cardstock background, and also added some of the new Brushed papers and Pear cardstock. I stamped the Pear cardstock with Pixie ink using a beautiful medallion design. I also used another new colour, canary, to bring another colour into the design.
The birds featured on this layout are also stamped in Pixie ink, and are from a new stamp set.
To embellish, I used some of the new Brushed Assortment flowers in Pixie, which coordinated really well with the Sparkles Clear Assortment.
I also made a birthday card featuring Pixie to give to my friend, featuring another new stamp set that I absolutely love. The flowers were fussy cut and I added some Flamingo Dots to jazz it up a little.
Pixie really is a versatile ink colour, and the Brushed Paper pack uses it as one of the Featured Colours.
