CTMH Cloud Nine Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Cloud Nine Blog Hop!    We have over 20 hoppers for this blog hop!  Remember, the hop is a big circle so keep going through and you can go all the way around!

You  can get this exclusive Cloud Nine cardmaking kit for $15 (retail value $46) with a qualifying purchase of $35 or more  during January in celebration of National Papercrafting Month. Make 10 adorable cards (2 each of 5 designs) with funky messages to put any recipient on cloud nine! You can add one cardmaking kit for every $35 in your order.  This is a great special offered by CTMH for National Stamping Month!

If you have come from Karen’s blog, you are in the right place!

This is a great deal and I love to make cards from kits and sometimes I like to rearrange cards from kits as well.  So for this hop, what I have done for you is made one card per the instructions, and a second card with the same initial cuts and stamps as the instructions but I put them together differently.  Just a little spin for creativity!

So, for each picture, the card on the left is using the instructions and the card on the right is my spin on it!

So I made two other non-card items with the scraps.  The first is a notebook that I just cut out 4×4 and put together with my bind-it-all.

Then I decided to try something – I’m not sure how much I like it but here it is – an altered mousetrap with a magnet on the back for a fridge clip:
