Paper Trail September Hop

Welcome to the Paper Trail blog hop! We are a group of Close To My Heart consultants working together to bring you cards, layouts, and other art featuring a different Close To My Heart paper packet each month. If you arrived here from Pam's blog you are on the right trail!

Being as this last week before school starting is very busy for me, I of course, made my cards last minute and tried to keep them simple.

We are using the Sonoma papers this month. The colors in this pack of paper are amethyst, cocoa, colonial white, olive, petal, smokey plum.  I used the new pair-a-phrase stamp set. I used mainly smokey plum and olive for my ink colors. 
For this first card I did a bit on the inside as well as the front. I used the new 6" kraft square cards with the scalloped edge. I used the plum organdy ribbon to tie the card closed.

This second card uses the same colors as above. I used the Many Thanks stamp set for the leaves and sentiment. This one had the olive organdy ribbon and some mocha opaques.
For the third card- same colors and the Pair-a-Phrase stamp set. I did use some mini mocha opaques on the flowers and tires as well as two larger ones at the bottom of the card. The lighting is not the best on these unfortunately.

So now you are off to Betsy's blog. Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the hop!


  1. Great Cards, Lynne! I love the Pair-a-Phrase stamps - they are so versatile!

  2. Oh So Pretty!!! Love the first one with all the different papers! Great texture!! And such a unique fold! Wow!!!

  3. Great cards! I do love those new Kraft cards! I used one as my base too, but cut the edge off and used elsewhere on the card though!
