Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop

*Note: this is my second post for the day. 
Please scroll down to see my Reverse Confetti SFYTT post. Thanks!


I was super honoured to be asked by my friend, Paulina Nakamura of Pretty Pink Posh
to be a part of her Grand Opening Blog Hop.

She is selling some really fabulous embellishments in her shop
and she sent me the cutest sequins to play with!

Today, I'll be sharing two cards and one layout that I made with the Classic Christmas Flat sequins.
Here's the first card....


This first card was made using some Wplus9 stamp sets to create the wreath (Merry & Bright) 
and the banner (Basic Banners).
I embossed the background with a PTI woodgrain impression plate and then added some sequins 
as a finishing touch.

I'm linking this card up to the Monday Mood Board #24 at Wplus9.


For my second card, I used some Pink Paislee patterned paper.
I die cut one of my PTI In the Meadow dies and die cut the tree from my card stock. 
Then I adhered sequins to my patterned paper so that they would fill the opening.



A Wplus9 banner and sentiment, heat embossed with cream embossing powder 
on gold shimmer cardstock, finishes it off.

And lastly, I want to share the layout I made using the sequins that Paulina sent me.


I used some Pink Paislee patterned papers and chipboard sub-title.
I added some sequins as embellishments.


To create my title, I die cut my letters using my new PTI Bookprint alphabet dies.
Then I stamped over them with one of my Reverse Confetti So Stripey stamps to dress them up a little. 

This layout is for this month's Pages With Papertrey Challenge: add some sparkle to your layout: you can add bling, glitter, shimmer cardstock, sequins, etc. along with one Papertrey Ink product.

So, those are my projects for today.

There will be Pretty Pink Posh prize packs up for grabs to two lucky people, 
so please leave a comment here on my blog to be entered to win.

Then hop on over to the other members participating in the hop and leave comments there, too, 
to increase your chances of winning.

Great use of sequins on these projects, especially the tree! What do you use to adhere them? My glue always makes such a mess! Will check out this new shop too....thanks for letting us know about its opening.

Leigh you always do such lovely work. The wreath card is delightful with that woodgrain BG, and your tree card made me gasp...such rich, vibrant colors! But it was the LO that stole the show:) That photo of the "fake smile for mom again" faces on your kiddos is precious! I get the exact same things from my two:)
