HELLO LOVELY Rose Blossoms Blog Hop

Welcome to our Hello Lovely Blog Hop. If you've hopped over from Marg's Blog you're on the right track. Make sure you see everyone's beautiful creations by clicking the link to the next blogger at the end of this post. I also have a guest at the end. I'm so excited to show you her card.

I'm excited to announce that - WOO HOO - I was able to do something I've always wanted to take the time to do. I have used up an entire Workshop Your Way (paper AND embellishments) with only this many scraps left ...

That whole tiny pile went in the garbage, which is another big accomplishment for me.

First I made five layouts. This one shows Hello Lovely playing with neutrals so I'm highlighting it. 

If you'd like two see the rest of the layouts you can click HERE.

The paper that was left after five layouts was turned into 16 cards.

There's not a single Gold Glitter Gem, Hello Lovely Complement, or scrap of Blush Shimmer Ribbon left. AND I love these cards. I will use them all as I write notes throughout this year. A few of these are duplicated designs with different sentiments. But most are unique. The Hello Lovely Thin Cut Bundle was used along with a wide variety of other stamps that I have on hand. 

Here are my top five picks from the pile. 

AND now I have a special guest, my friend and downline Anne Rukke
She made this beautiful card using Hello Lovely and the January SOTM. 
Don't you just love how she rolled those tiny flowers?

 I love my CTMH team, the Pretty Pieces. In February you can get 3 SOTM stamp sets FREE when you sign up. After you've hopped through come back and click HERE to learn more.

Now it's time to see the wonderfulness on Kim Hill's blog. Thank You for hopping with us.
