The Paper Trail Blog Hop - November

Welcome to the Paper Trail Blog Hop featuring the Frosted Paper Packet! You may be starting here , or you may have arrived from Tracey's blog - Paper Crafting Princess. 

My samples for Frosted came out of my search for the perfect ink color to use with these gorgeous papers. As you may know, the Frosted paper packet features two specialty colors - Frosted Grey and Frosted Turquoise. The Frosted Workshop On The Go features Blush, but I wanted to bring in some other colors, so I experimented with many and these are my favorites.

Holiday Gift Guide Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the first round of my team's new blog hop. The Pineapple Paper Artists will be creating beautiful artwork for you to enjoy each month. This month we are featuring holiday items from the Holiday Gift Guide. You may be starting here on my blog, or you may have arrived here from Sandra's blog -  Scrappy Sandra's Custom Creations. Either way, you're on a circular hop which will take you to see everyone's lovely artwork.

My samples this time are scrapbook layouts.

X7176C Sparkle & Shine Complements Dimensional Elements
Z1907 Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape 3-Pack
Z1752 Sparkles Clear Assortment

Second layout:

X7176C Sparkle & Shine Complements Dimensional Elements
Z1907 Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape 3-Pack
Z1336 Opaques Adhesive Gems Pearl

One of my favorite things to do when using the Complements Dimensional Elements is to dress them up with Sparkles, Epoxy Bubbles, Glitter Gems, Opaques or Glitz Glitter Gel.

The Sparkle & Shine Washi Tape coordinates perfectly with the papers 
and I love the one with the silvery design!

I'd love to hear what you think! You're welcome to leave a comment.
Enjoy the artwork as you travel along to my team members' blogs. 
Next stop is Cheryl's blog - Creations With Style. See you next month!
