Evergreen Memories Team CTMH New Catalog Swap Blog Hop!

Welcome to our mini blog hop!  The Evergreen Memories Team worked together to create artwork for the new Annual Inspirations this last month.  I’m blessed to be part of an amazingly dedicated and TALENTED group of ladies!  This hop will feature a few of the new products from our brand new catalog.  If you came from Tracie’s blog you’re on the right track! 

My “mission” was to create 3 cards and a 1 page layout from Brushed and then recreate it for my swap sisters.  I instantly fell in love with the bright colors and REDS in this paper pack.  I’m surrounded by blue and boys at home so I almost always gravitate to the other side of the color wheel when new papers arrive! 

Here’s my layout.  I used the pattern from the second layout that’s part of the Workshop on the Go.   The pattern can be found in the Magic How-To book.  I used plenty of shimmer trim and the mini stamp set My Happy. M1045  It’s just $2.95!  The yellow heart flowers were cut from Artbooking at 2.5” in our new Canary Cardstock.

My first card was created using the Have A Happy Day D1616 stamp set.  I love how it has tons of sentiments!  On this card, I used our new Sequin Assortment in Silver and Shimmer Trim.

My second card is my very favorite.  I used the Your Own Kind of Wonderful Stamp set D1627 with the Sequin Assortment in Gold and Gold shimmer trim.  (notice a pattern with shimmer trim yet?)  I also used the new Bling Gems Gold Assortment.  I colored it with our new Peony Purple Shin Han marker to make it a pinky purple.  The butterfly was also cut from our Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.

This last card also used the Your Own Kind of Wonderful stamp set for the butterfly and sentiment but I added the Pretty Petals C1599 stamp set.  It’s completely compatible with the Art Philosophy Cartridge.  (((So Excited)))!  I embellished this with the Pink Shimmer Trim and Pink Glitter Gems.

  1. I love the bright fun colors of this paper pack! Your projects are all wonderful, but the triple flower card is my fave!

    1. I'm glad you like that one. It was a labor of love and I didn't really like it when it was all done. That's the amazing thing about creating. Everyone has a different perspective and tastes!

  2. I think Brushed is my favorite paper packet - I love all the colors you used. I especially love the double layered butterfly - I fluffed out it's wings when I got home. So elegant!

    1. That's my favorite card too. And it's the easiest one to make! No fussy cutting.
