PTI February Blog Hop: Scallops




















Today is Papertrey Ink's February Blog Hop!! Welcome to the world of SCALLOPS ;-)... should be a fun hop!

My entry today is a compliation of lots of fun goodies. I used scallops cut from a cricut cartridge layered over each other and a scallop circle under the butterfly. What's fun is I have been using ideas and inspiration from Nichole and Dawn and Mish: lots of layering, cutting out dies ahead of time in different colors to have on hand when I am ready to craft, and using an inspiration jar. My "inspiration jar" holds my die cuts. All I knew when I started was the base color of my card would be Sweet Blush from PTI and I would use layered scallops along the bottom.

Enjoy!
Kristin
