September Blog Hop Creatively Redeeming Treasures

Welcome to the Creatively Redeeming Treasures Team Blog Hop.. This month our Team is focusing on the Sarita Paper Pack, and sharing with you all of our wonderful creations with you to help inspire you and your creations!

You should have arrived here from Helen's Blog if not please start at the beginning with our WONDERFUL Team Leader Elizabeth HERE.. If you did arrive from  then you are in the right place, so WELCOME!

I was able to complete 20 cards with 2 B&T Sarita Papers 1 Slate  piece of Cardstock and 1 White Daisy piece of Cardstock that I cut all of my Cricut stamp compatible images from, how amazing is that? (I had extra pieces left over probably could have made 2-4 more cards)

The main colors I focused on were Honey, Slate, and Pacifica Blue in CTMH Exclusive Inks.. I really like how the Honey looks with the Sarita Papers..

I used multiple stamp sets and also some shimmer ribbon as well as retired CTMH Ribbon, 3m Foam adhesive and Tombow Mono Adhesive.. I also used spray paint, yes chrome colored spray paint, as well as some Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray..

It took me 3 days to complete the task not because it was particularly hard but because I was FORCING myself to create it.. Day 1 I cut all pieces layered them for mock ups and then was struck with zero inspiration..

Day 2 re-examined card mock layouts, re arranged some pieces and started looking at my Stamp Stash (130 stamp sets) and trying to see where I wanted to go with this.. Then life happened and I couldn't get back to crafting on Day 2.

Day 3 Venti cup of coffee from Starbucks for Free courtesy of their rewards program.. I was fueled slept well and ready to create, alas I received notice that I had finally been issued a license number for my NEW job at an Insurance Agency.. Played catch up with Facebook then went to the office to turn in my New Hire Paper Work and 2 hours later come home..

Anywho finally at midnight I was able to get back to crafting and it took me several hours because making 20+ cards is hard work especially if you keep changing stuff around.. haha
