Each month, Close To My Heart features a paper pack, and July's focus is Prickly Pear. (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Gerri's blog. From here, you'll visit Erica next.) I wanted to share some different ideas with this collection! I have two projects that fit the theme and one that you probably wouldn't think would be made with the Prickly Pear Workshop Your Way collection. (I always get the Workshop Your Way because you get great coordinated products at a great price.)
First up are my projects that you would probably expect from Prickly Pear.
Since the CTMH/Cricut Flower Market has cacti cut outs, I knew that I had to try them out for our fiesta. (These are all made with one key on that cartridge.)
This little guy started with three identical bases cut from Emerald card stock (set at 3") and then the corresponding overly cut from the Sea Glass strip in the Prickly Pear collection.
My final project isn't your typical Prickly Pear layout. I did use the Emerald, Sea Glass, and Sapphire color combo found in this collection.
I hope that I've been able to give you lots of ideas with this fun paper pack! You don't have to have live in the Southwest or throw a fiesta to enjoy this paper pack. I'd love to know what you think of my projects before you go on to Erica's blog. Thanks for hopping!
