Memory Works Spring Blog Hop

Welcome to the Memory Works Spring/Summer Catalog Preview Blog Hop!
You have arrived here from Amanda Bratu's blog. Didn't she have great things to share. For a complete list of participants or to start from the beginning of the hop please visit the Memory Works blog.
 Today I am so thrilled to be able to share some projects created with fresh new and exciting products from Carta Bella.  Carta Bella is fast becoming one of my favorite lines that Memory Works offers.  You can see all of the Carta Bella and Memory Works products here.  I am using the fun new line called So Noted. 
Double sided cardstock

Coordinating cardstock stickers

Journaling Cards
6 x 6 coordinating papers 
I wanted to show you how versatile these products are so from one line of product I have created a 12 x 12 layout, a mini album and three note cards.  I have enough product left to create at least two more layouts and lots and lots of cards. 
This layout is a great picture that my father in law recently gave to us.  It is him when he was in the Army Air Corp in World War II.   I used my Heidi Swap edge distresser to rough up the edges of some of the papers.  I made the envelope using an old school Colluzle envelope template.  The ribbon is seam binding that I sprayed with walnut stain and crumpled then dried with my heat gun. I used my sewing macine for additional texture and inked around the edges of the cream cardstock.

Here are the three cards that I have created so far.  Like I said, there are tons of paper and stickers left to create many more cards!
I love making mini albums for all sorts of occasions.  But sometimes I can get stuck in a rut and I have a hard time coming up with new ideas.  For this little book I used the 4 x 6 journaling cards and punched two holes in them and then created a cover using elements from the cardstock, stickers and the 6 x 6 pad.  It came together really quickly and I think I will use it for inspirational qoutes that I come across.
 Your next stop is JodySpiegelhoff's blog.  She has something very special waiting for you.
