Damask Divas October Blog Hop: Laughing Lola

 

Welcome! I'm super excited to participate in my first Damask Divas Blog Hop!  This month you can see just a small portion of cute & fabulous things you can do with your Laughing Lola paper pack. If you came from Kat Purty's Blog, you are in the right place.  If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas Blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

 I honestly wasn't sure where to begin with this Blog Hop project, but I finally decided I wanted to try a card with a pocket on it. So I picked a fun patterned paper from...you guessed Laughing Lola, for the main card! I kept it simple, but fun.


 

As you can see I was very daring with my mixing and matching of patterns, but I think it works well together. I made sure to add some Laughing Lola bling and a bow paper clip to give it flair! Embellishments don't have to be overly fancy, what counts is that whatever you choose works for what you need/want!
I loved adding the cute bookmark at the end that just slips in the front pocket. Now that I look at it I think I want to go back and add a cute poem or saying about celebrating, or even about cupcakes! I'll post up picks once I find something that fits perfectly with my fun card. Somebody is sure going to get a fun card!

I used the following items to complete this Super Fun Card:

X7170B Laughing Lola paper pack
Z1854 Laughing Lola Assortment
X7170C Laughing Lola Complements Dimensional Elements
D1559 Geometric Backgrounds
Cricut Art Philosophy
Z2190 Gypsy Ink Pad
44751 Black Ink Pad
Colonial White paper
Sponge
