MFP January Blog Hop Part #1, Day #1 - Paper Doll

Hi everyone, happy new year!  Its time for the first Mark's Finest Papers blog hop of the year!

This week is part one, and I'm not participating in the 'hop' portion of the event since I wil be participating in part two which is next week.  I did, however, contribute some samples to be included on the main blog. We have some really fun sets for you this week, the first one is called "Paper Doll"

I think this will be a popular set since it is so versatile - great for card makers and multi-media artists alike.  Here is what I came up with:

When I made my card I didn't want to permanently attach the paper doll to the card so I used a cute spiral paper clip and also the ribbon and edge of the sentiment to hold it in place. I paper pieced the outfit with a fun pattern, and used coordinating patterns from the same paper pack for the rest of the card.  The cute flower embellishment is from one of the the patterned sheets.

If you'd like to participate in the first part of this month's blog hop be sure to visit the Mark's Finest Papers blog.  You'll have the chance to win some of this month's sets, and there is lots of inspiration being presented by the whole design team whether it be on the main blog or in this weeks hop. Tomorrow I'll be back for day #2.  :)


  1. Gorgeous Cathy!!! Love the suit with the yellow accents!

  2. Very pretty, Cathy. I like this babe in her yellow and white. Very cheery. I love the stick pins, they really set the card off.

  3. Cathy this is so cute. I love the colors. Yellow and Grey is my fav colors. And I love that you can pull your girl off the card. Awesome idea.

  4. One cool babe with her matching underwear!

  5. Great idea with the swirl clip. Lovely card.

  6. Beautiful doll and card; love the colors you used and the paper piecing is gorgeous.


Thanks so much for your comments! I read them all and appreciate every word! :)
