Joyful Stars July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars July Blog Hop. This hop is a circle, so it doesn't matter if you are coming from the blog of my good friend and talented scrapbooker Stephanie or if you start here on my blog. Just continue around until you're back to the blog that you started on to make sure you see all the fabulous projects. 

I love Close To My Heart's Workshop on the Go kits. They are a great value and make papercrafting faster, simpler, easier! Last month I went on a retreat and had quite a few kits to complete. One kit was the beautiful Ivy Lane Cardmaking kit. 

What I love to do after I make the kit is to take the brochure cutting guide / directions and switch it up with different paper and stamps. That way the money spent on the kit becomes an even better value as I continually reuse that brochure! 

Supplies for "New Ivy Lane Cards":

All of the current Workshop on the Go Kits are retiring at the end of this month so hurry before they are sold out! 

Also, I made a Cricut Design Space file for the "New Ivy Lane Cards". If you are a Cricut Explore / Design Space user here is the project link. You will need to have Close To My Heart's cartridges linked to your account.

Your next stop on the hop is to Jolene's blog. She is one of my best friends, and I'm so excited she is hopping with us this month!  For a full list of bloggers on this hop look here.


  1. Love that we both were thinking Cardmaking Workshops by CTMH!! I love the use of different papers with these guides!! Wonderful!! I need to add that to my thinking process too! :) I store the guides, but I should cut new cards using a different paper pack immediately! Thanks for the inspiration! :)

  2. I love what you did by taking the existing directions and changing up the papers! You would never guess that they are the same design. Beautiful work as always <3

  3. Another great showing of the versatility of our card workshops. Lovely!

  4. Wonderful cards! Thank you for sharing your cutting project!

  5. I love how you change out the paper to make something truly unique!

  6. Beautiful cards, Crystal! I love the creative way of using the paper packets :)


I'm glad you stopped by my blog today and thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! Crystal
