CTMH Paper Trail Blog Hop December

This month's blog hop features Roxie papers. If you have come from Karen's blog then you are on the right track. 
I made a small box with a single sheet of 12x12 paper. I found the directions online. Then I made 4 cards to coordinate with the papers. I used the same card layout for each with small variations. This first pic is the side view so you can see how the cards fit in. The last pic is the front of the box. I did add some paper on the inside of the box (front and back flaps) to make it more sturdy and give the inside a more finished look. Inks used were smoothie, tulip and black. I used the black button brads and then put some bling on top of them- sparkles and opaques.

Now head off the Pam's blog to see what things she has in store for you.

Elemental papers

These cards were designed by me while away on a consultant weekend retreat. I tried to only use the stamp sets that come with the Cricut CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge. I believe I succeeded. I used Elemental papers. The scallop edge is a hand held punch(SU, I believe). I followed the same basic layout with some variation on each card.  I did use some mocha opaques as accents. I think I may do these for a future card club project.

Winter Wonderland papers

I made these cards at my upline's- Sandy VanNostrand-so they are her basic designs. I may have changed a few things here and there. I used the winter wonderland papers and snowflakes cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge. Stamp sets are Snowflakes and Winter Joy. She had all the pieces cut out so it was nice on a Friday evening after a long week at school to be able to just stamp and assemble and not have to think too much:)
