Three Amigos Blog Hop February 2017

Welcome to this month's Three Amigos Blog Hop!  We are three CTMH Consultants and friends who share the love of papercrafting and challenge each other every month, on the third of the month, to create something using some awesome Close To My Heart products!

And starting next month we want to see what you create as well!  We're going to turn this hop into a challenge because we thought that would be fun!  We'll have small prizes each month and you'll get all of the details in March so be sure to join us again next month!

This year we're focusing on paper packs... and this month it's all about the Hello Lovely paper pack!

I have to admit... when I first looked at all of the paper packs in the online Idea Book I wasn't sure that I liked any of them... true story!  But I ordered them for our hops and like every other time when I got them and could take out all of the papers and saw them in person... they are awesome!  Hello Lovely has become one of my favorites for sure.. these soft colors and all of the florals and the Gold!!!!  

I used a PML card for that pretty circle with the floral and the center area for a sentiment.  I cut it out using a stitched circle die from Craftin Desert Divas and then covered up the sentiment that said "Best Day" with a couple stickers from the Complements pack and that gorgeous gold "Love" went over the top.  Then I layered it on top of the scallop circle from the same set of dies.

I'm used this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for my layout and I'm playing along with the Heart2Heart Challenge, Falling In Love (I'm falling in love with this paper pack!) and the Between The Folds Challenge to Use Ribbon (Challenge Schmallenge)!

That pretty little pink heart is also in the Complements.  I used some paper flowers I had on hand (including that beautiful peachy one I got from Yvonne from the former Lessology Challenge Blog... all the way from Singapore... isn't it lovely?  A few die cut leaves from Heartfelt Creations and some gold bling and my cluster was perfect in my eyes.  More love.

And then of course I love you.  I do!  I so appreciate all of your visits and when you leave me some love and let me know you were here my heart swells!  I think this sweet little sentiment from the Complements pack is one of my favorites... so simple and pretty.

Now head on over to Donna and Susan's blogs and see what they have for you today!

Here's this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch... it's got lots of possibilities.. hope you can play along and be sure to check out Heart2Heart and Between The Folds as well!

Update: They like me... they really like me... :)

Hi Lisa! Sorry I've been MIA lately - hurt my wrist at work over a week ago and it's just now starting to do a little better - thought I would try & play blogger catch up - only leaving one comment because I don't want to make my wrist worse... trying to take it easy on it! :) LOVE your beautiful card! It's so pretty with the "LOVE" die & the flowers - I also took a sneak peek at the other AWESOME creations I missed - Lovin' the owls you've been using & coloring! Have a great day!
