Holiday Sparkle/Seasons of Joy Blog Hop

Close To My Heart is really getting into the festivities this year!  Right now, you can purchase the Holiday Sparkle card kit and of course the Seasons of Joy Cricut collection which we are featuring on this blog hop. (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Darlys's blog.  From here, you'll visit Michelle Loncar's blog next.)  Hopefully we will showcase the Christmas Blessings collection in a hop later this year.
Instead of creating a 5"x7" card, I cut my card front down to a 5" square to use the shaker portion on this simple layout, a sketch from Reflections.  I used the striped piece, the bird, and the sequins from the kit.  I added Tis the Season paper and silver shimmer trim.  It will be so easy to add my holiday photos to this layout!
To further match the shaker to my layout, I sponged Clover ink on the frame.

Thanks for checking out my quick twist with the Holiday Sparkle kit!  Be sure to continue along the hop to Michelle's blog after leaving me a comment.  Thank you!

  1. Nice work! I love the idea to sponge ink to match the layout.

  2. Great idea to sponge the foam with ink- and I love that little birdie.

  3. I like the shaker card as a part of your scrapbook page. It will look great with your Christmas pictures.

  4. How cool that you incorporated it into a layout. I like how you sponged the circle frame.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
