Make Waves CTMH Australasian Blog Hop


Welcome to our Make Waves CTMH Australasian Blog Hop! If you arrived from Vandra's blog, you are on the right track. If you arrived by accident, I hope you will hop around all the blogs and check out all the projects shared!

My inspiration for this card came from Linda Curico. I used Lagoon, Pansy & White Daisy Cardstock, D1764 - Make Waves Scrapbooking Stamp Set, Black Memento Ink Pad, ShinHan Twin Touch Markers, Clear Shimmer Brush to create this Double Front Fold Card. 



I have decided that I am going to use up some of the complements and embellishments I have stashed away this year. Some of them are retired, but others are still available. For this page layout, I used MIFYH Vol 3, Pattern 6, White Daisy & Emerald CS, Make Waves Paper, Adventure Ribbon Pack, Glitter Gems (retired), Springtime Complements (retired), Thin Foam Tape, Glue Dots

The Make Waves collection is available till the end of April - WSL from your consultant! If you don't have a consultant, you can contact me here!

I would love you to leave a comment before you continue on to see what Nell has created!

Come back soon and see what else is NEW and what I have been creating.

S1802 - Sunny Thoughts Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop





Welcome to our S1802 Sunny Thoughts Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop! If you arrived from Doris' blog, you are on the right track. If you arrived here by accident, then I hope you will hop around all the blogs and see what everyone has created using our February Stamp of the Month - Sunny Thoughts!

This month I am sharing a selection of cards I have created using this versatile stamp set, with a variety of papers.

For the first three cards, I used some scraps of cardstock I had sitting on my desk and used the coordinating ink colour to stamp a "splash" with D1733 - Splash of Colour Stamp Set under the sentiment.
The colours used were Cranberry, Lagoon & Sapphire.





For this card, I used a scrap of Basics Fundamentals Paper. I used the border stamp from S1802 - Sunny Thoughts Stamp Set for the border and stamped it and the sentiment in Charcoal ink.

This card was created using Pacifica Cardstock with paper from the Chelsea Gardens paper pack. I used the Scallop Border Thin Cuts to cut the borders from Pacifica cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Pacifica. The Butterfly - from C1709 - Chelsea Gardens Cardmaking Stamp set, was stamped in Pewter and coloured using Water Colour pencils. 


 For this card, I used Pacifica and White Daisy Cardstock. The circle was cut using the largest of the Basic Circles Thin Cuts. The cute little mermaid is from D1764 - Make Waves Scrapbooking Stamp Set and was stamped with Black Memento Ink and coloured using Water Colour Pencils. The sentiment was stamped in Pacifica. 

This card was created using Pacifica, White Daisy & Lemon Cardstock, along with paper from the Stargazer Paper Pack. I used Design Space and my Cricut Explore to cut the pocket. The sun is from the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge. The circle was the one cut from the 'Mermaid' card above - using the largest of the Basic Circles Thin Cuts. I used Pacifica & Lemon Ink to stamp the sentiment.


The February Stamp of the Month, S1802 - Sunny Thoughts is only available this month - February 2018! You can get the stamp for just $7.50 set by spending $75.00 with your consultant or your can purchase it for $27.00.  If you don't have a consultant, you can contact me here!

I would love you to leave a comment before continuing on to see what Vandra has created.

Then there was left over supplies that I have used to create more pages and cards  - some of which I shared on 1st January and others I will share soon!

January is National Papercrafting Month!


And for National Papercrafting Month 2018, CTMH have designed a set of beautiful papercrafted monograms. Each comes as part of a kit containing the sturdy chipboard letter base, rose gold accents, die-cut floral embellishments, and letter stickers for customising your final artwork piece. The finished letters are the perfect size for adorning any wall in your home.
These versatile letters can also be used together to spell out a whole name or word, which is why if you buy five letter kits, you can choose a sixth kit FREE!
You can also receive your choice of letter kit free by hosting a qualifying party in January or by signing up to be a Consultant!

So far, I have made up the "A" for ALI and the "I" for INSPIRE. I added both my letters to frames that I purchased from our local KMart store, but this is not necessary.

You can order your Love Letters here! The letters are only available till 31st January strictly While Supplies Last, so don't miss out.
You can check out the NEW Seasonal Expressions here! If you would like a copy of the idea book, place an order online or contact me and receive one FREE! Or you can collect one when you attend one of my events.

Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year! This year, it will be fairly quiet for us, but I get to spend the day with my gorgeous little family - including the dog and cats, and catch up with some of the extended family.

Once again, I wish you a very Happy Christmas. I pray that it is filled with peace and joy as you spend time with those you love and that 2018 brings all that you hope for!

I look forward to catching up with many of you in the New Year and I hope to inspire those I don't get to see with my creations.
