CTMH Jackson and Life is Wonderful for the Joyful Stars July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars blog hop for the month of July!  If you have arrived here from Crystal's blog, you are on the right path.
Today I am sharing one more card made with the CTMH Jackson paper pack.  In fact, I used a few scraps of paper that I had leftover from my big projects that I featured in my last post.  This time, however, I decided to use our brand new stamp of the month called Life is Wonderful.  I thought that it paired well with the Jackson paper.  (During the month of July, you can receive this stamp set for FREE with a $25 stamp purchase!  Click here to see all of the fine print.)  You could easily pair this stamp set with just about any paper pack by simply changing out the ink colors.  I have used Barn Red and Cocoa.  A few Oceanside sequins and my newest card was finished.
Thank you for visiting me along your journey today.  Please hop along to Marie's blog to see what she has in store for your viewing enjoyment.

CTMH Jackson - GIRLplusPAPER Style

 Not too long ago, Close To My Heart released the Jackson line of products.  I wasn't instantly attracted to it, if I am being completely honest.  In all of the artwork that I had seen, an outdoorsy or southwestern theme was ever present.  That is soooo not my style.  Inspiration hit when I happened to see a  shabby chic layout on Pinterest, and I thought using Jackson in this manner might be amazingly unique.  I also created two matching cards because I just couldn't help myself.  Aren't they cute if I do say so myself?  I got to work using the Jackson Paper Pack, my CTMH Cricut collections for the words, butterflies, doily and roses, some Shimmer Trim, Glitter Paper and the Paper Bird Hostess Rewards Stamp Set.  Oops!  And some Oceanside Sequins too.  Many of these items are available only while supplies last or until they officially retire as of September 1, 2015 at the longest, so order quickly if you would like to own any of these fabulous products before they are gone forever!
