Paper Trail Blog Hop - August

Welcome to the blog hop. You may have arrived here from Vicki's blog, Wizard's Hangout, or you may be starting here and moving along, either way you are sure to see great artwork. My samples this month feature some new, some old! My first card is a box fold card using the new Avonlea papers and the stamp set from the Workshop On The Go.
Here is a pop-up card with Stella papers and one of the new stamp sets from the Cricut Artiste Collection.
Lastly, I've made a stair card using Pemberley papers and the Remarkable Wreath stamp set.
Thanks for stopping by! On to Connie's blog Scraps & Stories.

Convention Gifts for my Downlines

Here are the gifts I gave to each of my downline this year at Convention. I also treated them to a delicious dinner at a Mexican restaurant in downtown Dallas called Wild Salsa - yummo! My sweet daughter made the necklaces for me and I made the wall-hangings and pins.

Convention Swap Card

This is my Convention swap card. It isn't fancy, but shows a fun way to use our Cricut cartridge. I made about 50 cards.

Paper Trail Blog Hop

We're cruisin' into the summer months with CRUISIN' papers for the blog hop this month! You may have cruised here from Lynne's blog - Field's Finery or you may be starting here and cruisin' along. My first sample is a My Creations Bookmark Album (Z1740) using the Cruisin' Paper Packet(X7154B), Bottle Caps (Z1691) and the Adventure USA stamp set (D1503).
My next sample is a twisted easel card made with the adorable A Bowwow stamp set (A1126). I stamped the dog on the grey flannel B&T Duos paper and cut him out - it looks so cute!
Hop on over to Linda's blog - The Paper Taylor for more great samples!
