The Everything ABC Blog Hop- Letter J

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter J.  This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment.  Whatever  the crafter has chosen as their J element will be featured in their post.

If you have just hopped onto my blog, you are at the beginning!

My J is Just Chillin'!  This is a revised version of the layout I did at The CTMH Album retreat last fall.  

It was intended to be a winter layout and I changed the paper to Footloose (retired but available on Studio J) and turned it into a swimming layout…by the way the water was REALLY cold!

 The snowflakes are cut from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge overlay that has snowflakes! I saved the overlay for a later purpose and just used the snowflakes and cut a few from the Icon and Border buttons too!  The Photo mats are cut from the same key on the same page!  Isn't that fun!  IT is almost all from the same page and key on on the Artbooking Cartridge!

 I also used white baker's twine, Lagoon Houndstooth Washi tape, Aqua Dots and Teal Shimmer Trim as embellishments!  The chevron border is from the One-Way Borders stamp set and is stamped in Pear!
 As you can see I stamped using the M sized Single Snowflake stamp to add a pattern by random stamping on the plain cardstock I used here! There is also a lot of 3-D Foam tape used on this layout to make things pop!
 The H2O is so cute!  It said snow in the original layout!  The tiny letters are from the Crush Books Best Day Ever Assortment!  The Just Chillin' title below is from again the same page and key in the Artbooking Cricut cartridge book
It sure is a cute J!

Here are some more Album Retreat layouts!
