PSA Essentials - Cottage Cuz Blog Hop

Welcome to the PSA Essentials/Cottage Cutz Blog Hop! I'm so happy to have you joining our group today! During today's blog hop, we'll be sharing ideas for creating your own handmade holiday cards and projects. And since this time of the year is so busy for everyone, I'm all for quick and easy projects!

We have a great list of designers joining us today and you should have arrived here from Lorie Souther's blog. (A complete blog list is included at the end of this post in case you got lost along the way!) Don't forget that there are prizes being offered during the blog hop so please read those details at the end of my post!

For my card today I went with a clean and simple design layout that can be used for any color combination, greeting, or image. Simply change out the pink cardstock for red, attach a piece of red and white designer paper, a Merry Christmas sentiment, and a tree image for a whole new look!

Now I confess that I have a thing for non-traditional holiday colors and this year pink has been my thing and what could be cuter than the color pink, a houndstooth pattern, and Hello Kitty! I adore the Hello Kitty images from PSA...they are darling! I have no doubt that my girlfriends would like nothing more than receiving a all girl-inspired card this year! And what pink card would be complete without a few rhinestones, glitter (on Kitty's hat and boots), and shiny Perfect Pearls!

I hope you enjoyed my CAS card (this would be a perfect design for mass producing cards!) and that you have an opportunity to visit the other ladies on the hop!

Your next stop is Pearl Liu...Here are the prize details!

PRIZE PACKAGE DETAILS: Readers who hop to each of the blogs, comment at each, and are a follower of PSA Stamp Camp will be entered to win the “Holiday Card” prize.
