National Scrapbooking Month Postcard Perfect Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Scrapbooking Month Postcard Perfect Blog Hop!  (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Gina's blog.  From here, you'll visit Kirsten's blog next.)  Close To My Heart has the most amazing collection available this month only!  You can get a gorgeous paper pack, coordinating cardstock, stamp set, Cut Above Layouts collection, and even an album separately or all bundled together.  (You can read more about it HERE.)  Of course I had to have it all!
This paper was a great match for my photos from Day 12 from our 2016 trip to Europe.  It was our final day aboard the MSC Opera
My layout is based loosely on a sketch from Cherish (now retired).  It can be hard to fit 8 photos on one layout, especially when you don't want to trim them down very much.  For my title, I stamped The North Sea with Peacock ink using the Bistro Alphabet stamp set.  The floral circle is from a sheet of cutout artwork that comes with the Postcard Perfect paper pack.
To embellish my layout, I used gold shimmer trim, gold gems, and Beautiful Friendship bows.

My final project (for now) is this quick & easy card based on a sketch from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4.  I inked my sentiment in Sea Glass (retired) and then inked the Adventure portion with Peacock before stamping.  Smoothie & Willow are my flower and leaf ink choices.  I used a few Bashful pearls too.

Be sure to come back often, because I will have many more projects with this collection, especially an upcoming cruise in honor of my parents' 50th wedding anniversary this summer.  Thank you for hopping by!  I'd love a comment before you head off to see what Kreative Kirsten has to share with you!  Be sure to click on each person's name to go to the next blog along the hop.  You don't want to miss any of the great ideas shared with this amazing collection!
