White Pines Hearts of the West Blog Hop

White Pines Christmas Cards

Welcome to the Hearts of the West blog hop for November! This month, we are focusing on the White Pines paper and how we can use it for our projects. Halloween is over and everyone is starting to gear up for Christmas, and this paper is perfect for the cards you send to family and friends!

If you got here from Kerry's blog, you are in the right place, but if you get lost along the way, just return to Nancy's blog for the complete list of hoppers!

As you hop through our blogs, please leave your comments as we love to hear your thoughts on our work, whether it is something you would like information about or a technique you would love to try, or something else.

My project this month is a series of Christmas cards from the White Pines Card Making Workshop on the Go, and two that are my version of a birthday card I found on Pinterest. 

The two cards below are my version of the birthday card I saw on Pinterest (sorry. I don't have the name of the original pinner...) and I converted to a Christmas card. The Cranberry banners are cut at 3" X 1" and the White Pines overlays are 2.75" X .75". The first set I cut by hand, but then I had the brainstorm to see if I could cut them with my Cricut! They are on the Art Philosophy cartridge! Yay!! So much easier getting them the correct size. The ornament mat is cut at 2" and the White Daisy overlay is cut just slightly smaller. The sparkles are from a WOTG last Fall and are no longer available. 

Not sure I like this one - still thinking about it. The circles were cut with the Close to my Heart 2" scalloped circle punch. The Peace and Joy stamp is from the Frosted card making workshop of last Christmas so is no longer available.

That's it for this month! I am the last stop on this hop so you can return to Nancy's blog and start over if you like! Please join us next month when we will be focusing on the beautiful Kaleidoscope paper pack.
