Welcome! I'm SO excited to share that I'm now a member of the i {heart} papers design team!

i {heart} papers is THRILLED to be adding six new amazingly talented design team members to our current team. We are also welcoming our incredible new July/August guest designer today. To help celebrate we will be offering 6 - $10 gift certificates. Winners will be selected from all of the blog comments you leave as you congratulate and help welcome them to the team so be sure to hop along and comment!

I am so excited to work with an AMAZING product range and an absolutely fabulous design team!

Before you start hopping, here's a quick clean and simple card from me featuring one of my favourite paper collections so far this year, Fourteen by Crate Paper.

I am NUTS for chevrons at the moment, so I wanted to play with both large and small patterns on my card. The background layer was cut with nesties, all other die cuts apart from the heart are from the useful Flags and Tags set from MFT. I adhered the banners to a curved piece of paper and made a topper with the sunburst shape and a heart die-cut.

To give the heart some interest, I covered it in liquid pearls, then used a scrap of paper to "chop" along the wet pearls, giving this fun texture!

The sentiment from Verve is stamped on another piece from Flags and Tags and some pretty Snow White Pearls finish it all off!

Ok, leave a comment so you're in to win then it's time to HOP! Comments close Friday July 5 at noon EST and winners will be announced on the IHP blog the following week. (You must visit the blog to see if you've won. You will not be contacted.)
