City Sidewalks Blog Hop

Welcome to the CTMH City Sidewalks Blog Hop if you arrived here from Maz's blog  you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance no worries just click on the link at the end of this post to continue the hop.

Wow, this is a terrific collection, I love the papers and compliments!

I had a lot of fun working with kit and have created two projects for this hop, a card and a layout. I sometimes have difficulty working with papers that have a very busy pattern but I have found if you use smaller pieces of the busy paper it is all that you need. I have used the new Flip Flaps Z3245 with this layout, the first photo shows without the flip flap, the second with the flip flap and the third photo shows how it looks in my album.

This card was so easy to make, I used the Zip Strips from the papers to make the wreath. I cut the strips into 3" pieces which I folded in half and dove tailed the end. I cut a 11/2" circle frame and then placed the strips onto the circle frame. I used 18 pieces of paper for the wreath, then added a flower cut from the new Flower Market Cricut cartridge found on page 49 cut at 11/2". I then added one of the silver snowflakes from the Compliments. I dovetailed the ends of the sentiment to match the wreath.

Thank you for stopping by to continue please click here for Kara's blog and see what great project she has created.
