and your next stop will be
(I will repost this link at the end of this post)
 This month we are showcasing the Wanderful paper pack.
I decided to use the Wanderful WOTG
The WOTG comes with instructions to complete a two page layout as well as everything you see above.  I decided to use the instructions, but tweak it so it could be made without using any cricut cuts. The layout below is the one for which instructions are included


Now
Here's my version


 And here are a few of the techniques I used to create it

  • stamped the images and then fussy cut them out
  • used a patterned paper instead of of the purple to ground the bottom of the page

  • Now it's your turn to see what you can create with this paper pack.

    This is one stamp set I am sure you are going to want to have.

    Confetti Wishes--HWBH

    Welcome to the Hearts of the West Team Blog Hop.
    You should have come from Corinna's Crafts

    This month our blog hop features the Confetti Wishes paper pack.
     It is perfect for birthday celebrations.
    But I didn't want to do a birthday layout.
    Instead I looked at the individual pieces of paper in the pack.
    That is when I noticed  the yellow and purple combination
    And
    I immediately thought of Easter.



    Hence the layout below.
    Hope you like it.

    I used our dot embossing folder to add a bit of texture to the canary cardstock.  And added a couple of sentiment blocks from our new Carnival Washi tape.

    Now let's hop over to
       Holly's 
    and see her creations
