Just for Fun Blog Hop


Welcome to the Just for Fun blog hop. This blog hop features products from the Fundamentals line as that is the featured special in the month of November! There are Paper Packs, Complements and Ribbon packs available in 4 different combinations - Adventure, Enchantment, Whimsy and Basics. Each has its own distinct flavour. Some are bold while others are more subdued. The consultants along this blog hop will present a wide variety of projects using these products - and I am sure you will see all 4 palettes represented as well.

You should have arrived here from Krista Hershberger's blog.

If you get lost along the way, there is complete list of participants on Melinda Everitt's blog.

On the last blog hop, I was so inspired by a card made by a friend of mine, Brenda Lapp. Her Christmas card was just beautiful - so I contacted her to check if she would be ok if I used her basic idea for this bog hop but with different colours. Her original card can be seen here. I chose to use the Thistle dotted page from the Whimsy Fundamentals for the base of my card and the striped Pansy piece from the Adventure Fundamentals to create my poinsettias. The leaves and branches are Cricut cut using Charcoal cardstock and Silver Glitter paper. I coloured in the Bitty Sparkles with the Lavender ShinHan marker.


I hope you enjoyed my project.

The next blog on this hop is Darlys Recker's blog.
I am sure she has something terrific to share with you.
