"The world is round so that friendship may encircle it."
Thank you so much for joining us in our 2nd Blog Share! You should have made your way from Jody's blog. If this is your first stop please head on over to GIA at The Painted Crane This month we are featuring products from Heidi Swapps Mixed Company and Color Magic lines! I can not get enough of this Color Magic paper!! It is so much fun to work with the Color Magic and Heidi Swapps Color Shine. The Color Shine comes in so many colors there are endless possibilities with this stuff!! If you have not yet got your hands on some Color Shine and Color Magic I highly suggest putting this at the top of your wish lists friends!! The first project I want to share with you is actually the last project I completed and I think it is one of my favorites because it was super easy, fun and quick! I took one 12x12 piece of Color Magic added three different colors of Color Shine (Sweet Cherry Mint Green and Mustard) to it and once it was dry I cut it down to 6 fronts measuring 5 1/4x4 I then took some of my favorite Heidi Swapp stickers and added simple sentiments to the card fronts! I then adhered 3 of these to black card bases to create simple but O so super cute cards!
Hannah's Home Accents! What an amazing experience meeting HEIDI SWAPP! She truly is the sweetest! I knew I had to scrap this photo and this layout will be going in frame and hung up in my craft space!

Thank you Jenn! I almost did not want to cut apart the 12x12 color magic piece because it was so pretty after I had sprayed it!Delete
