Dream Pop Hop!

Dream Pop
Welcome to the Dream Pop blog hop.  This is dedicated to Close to My Heart's May special in celebration of National Scrap-booking Month.  This paper is available May 1-31 for just $10 with your purchase of $35 or more.  Contact your consultant for more details or visit me online

If you arrived here from Katy's blog then  you are on the right path, but if you started here no worries  as this hop is a big circle, so keep on hopping and you'll see it all!  But if you'd like to start at the beginning here's the spot and wave when you hop by.

B & T patterned papers
 UV patterned papers

When I was a kid a Dream Pop was something you purchased from the ice cream truck that you chased down in your neighborhood and sometimes you even chased the truck on your bike outside of your neighborhood, but that's something you didn't tell your parents!  

The delicious flavors of Dream Pop are Banana, Mint, Raspberry, Strawberry, Tangerine, & Grey.  These colors are only in this paper pack and they are BRIGHT, but no worries your Slate, Juniper, Whisper, Cotton Candy, Sunset exclusive inks will work.  We also have extra artwork for you in a workshop format.  Your consultant will have that information available for you.

Today I'm fascinated by tree's all sorts of trees, and I have found some lovely tree dies at a local, well not so local, LSS in Erie called Monkey Business.  The owner is a lovely lady who is ordering more dies for me.  I know I could get them online or through eBay,but I'd like to have that store available to me in the future, so I'm willing to pay a dollar or two more.  I think we all need to stop and shop local, so those neighbors will still be there for us tomorrow.  Plus I always find lovely treasures that the big box stores just don't have and never will.  So join the trend shop local and that includes your fabulous Close to My Heart consultants! 

This is my first item that I've made with my Dream Pop papers.  They arrived TODAY(4-26)!  And when I got home from the hospital, no worries, just another test I started thinking about what I wanted to make.  I remember the card that Monkey Business displays next to this die and while this is in no way a copy it is definitely inspired from that card.   I give credit where it is do even if it is not another consultant or CTMH site.

The Ultra Violet paper shows up nicely on this card adding another dimension to an otherwise flat card.  I had no idea why it's  called UV paper, so I asked my fellow consultants and they let me know that it's the way the paper is finished by applying the embossing product it is then dried or cured under Ultra Violet light.....maybe I've been living under a rock, but I had no idea.
