Some Kind of Wonderful Blog Hop

Welcome to our April feature paper pack "Some Kinda Wonderful" Australasian Blog Hop.  Some of you may have arrived here from Georgia Creates.. just follow the links at the bottom of each blog to go the whole way around.

This is a remarkably versatile paper pack.  Depending on what colours you put with it you can end up with pages suitable for a wide range of topics.  I thought the easiest way to show you what I mean might be to do 1 layout 2 ways.







This layout is very simple. Cut a zip strip off a 12" piece of patterned paper.  Then cut the paper at 9 1/2"  Set aside the narrower strip and trim the bigger piece to 91/2" square and round the corners.  Use your remaining pieces, 1 with the same pattern cut down and corner rounded at the top for the piece on the right page, the other, flipped over (the joy of double sided paper!) trimmed as you like it for the border at the bottom of the left hand page.  Use the zip strip to create a vertical stripe on the left hand side. Embellish and corner round as you wish.  The glittery black embellishments have come from the "Some Kinda Wonderful" embellishments but the chevrons and arrow on the bottom layout are leftovers from the "Dreamin' Big" embellishments.  You can see what a difference is made just by altering the colours that you put with the Some Kind of Wonderful paper. The Slate gives it a more masculine feel and the Glacier makes it little girly and fun. I hope you have fun playing with this idea.

I also have a couple of cards and a tag to show you.  The "Birthday" sentiment is one of our thin cuts.


The little cup cake is a stamp and thin cut set called "Sweet Birthday".

And this little tag used up some scraps. I love the way that black just makes this paper pack pop.
Now head over to http://vandractmh.blogspot.com.au/2017/04/some-kinda-wonderful-australasian-blog.html to see just how versatile "Some Kinda Wonderful" can be.
Happy Easter to you!
Keep smiling,
Nell
