RB Hop: Live Beautifully

Welcome to our Live Beautifully Blog Hop!
This month's hop is all of five stops .... 
Short, sweet and oh so inspiring!


We're featuring the exclusive "Live Beautifully" product line this time around. The exclusive papers, stamp set, layout kit, and album bundles are only available during the month of May in celebration of National Scrapbooking Month! 

See the full line-up right here:

While the gorgeous rose-floral prints are eye-catching headliners, I found myself drawn to the smaller graphic prints. What I really love about these prints is that they stand well on their own. I made these simple cards using my favorite Live Beautifully patterned papers:

This art deco-ish print is my favorite! 
I used Sea Glass card stock to coordinate with the zip strip.
The sentiment was cut using a Thin Cut and Black Glitter Paper.

I paired this dotty print with Emerald card stock, white Shimmer Trim, our new Star Thin Cuts, coordinating A-Stamp, and Emerald Ink.

This card was made using the gold dotty print, Desert Sand card stock, the Live Beautifully Stamp Set, gold embossing powder, Gold Glitter Gems, and Uptown Ribbon. 

This black and white floral was a perfect pairing for Raspberry card stock, a sentiment from the Live Beautifully Stamp Set, a glittery scallop border and a couple of staples!

Here's an easel card using using four patterned papers, a zip strip, the new Ovals Thin Cut, coordinating A-Stamp, Black Dots, White Twine, and various Shin Han markers.

Here's a few close-ups. 
Loving the Live Beautifully sentiments!
