Everything ABCs Blog Hop- H

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter H. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their H 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 Linda then you're on the right track!

For my letter H, I decided to go with Hello. This is a greeting in some of the stamp sets I want to showcase, and CTMH has such a great range so that you can find a "hello" for any occasion!

First up, we have the Hello greeting from the April Stamp of the Month, Balloon Talk. I cut out some speech bubbles around the empty frames, and placed some patterned paper behind it. The focal greeting really pops this way, and it is a great idea for using up your patterned paper.

Reel Life is one of my favourite stamp sets, and goes really well with an assortment of things. I quite often use the "hello today" sentiment on my scrapbook pages and cards. Here I have made it the focal point within some patterned paper circles.

Hello Wonderful is such a romantic stamp set- the medallion image is gorgeous and can be used with nearly any sentiment. Here I paired it with Slate and Blush colours, as well as some Creme Brulee accents and one of my favourite wooden trinkets.

Lastly, the Lollydoodle Cardmaking Kit has such a sweet Hello sentiment in the stamp set. I am seeing feathers everywhere lately in cardmaking, so I added the Feathers stamp to this card and a little bit of bling, and created a fun card. The thing I love about the cardmaking kits is that you heave heaps of paper left over to play with!

I would love for you to tell me which card you like the most before heading to the next stop on our Everything ABC'S blog Hop is Catherine Nowak ~ Catscrapbooking.
