Crate Paper & CardMaker Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to another fun blog hop.  We at the CardMaker  blog team are so excited to join in the fun with the amazing artists from the Crate Paper Design Team.  Today we are featuring Crate Paper's gorgeous Maggie Holmes line!  What a fabulous line, so much fun to create with.

For my project today, I started with some white acrylic paint from DecoArt and I dry brushed the Emily Jane paper to distress.  I then used the ephimera die cut cardstock, tags and butterfly.



For the coordinating gift box, I added some distressed cardstock to the top of the box, then die cut a label from the same paper, added some ribbon, twine and a die cut bow from the Ephimera die cut line.


I am in love with this line and can't wait to hop along and see all the beautiful projects created for the hop today.

Your next stop on the hop is:


And don't forget to stop by the Crate Paper Blog where they are hosting a $40 prize pack giveaway of Maggie Holmes items.

Hope you enjoy the blog hop.
