CTMH Australasian Cedar & Pine Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to our CTMH Australasian Cedar & Pine Blog Hop. If you arrived from Maz's blog, you are on the right track. If you arrived by accident, I hope you will hop around and see what our group has created.

This is a very busy time of year, so sometimes crafting takes a bit of a back seat. But I did have time to create this layout by fellow consultant, Janice Gilhooley. 
 To create the layout, I used the cricut file from Janice - using Artistry, Art Philosophy, Artiste, Season of Joy, You Are Here & Complete Creativity Cricut collections, with Cedar & Pine paper, Candy Apple, Evergreen & White Daisy cardstock and Silver Glitter paper. I added some Gold Shimmer Brush to the trees and ornaments. 

In the last couple of months I have also created some cards and a little box for chocolates or small gifts. 

This first card was created using White Daisy cardstock, Cedar & Pine paper pack, Gold Glitter paper, S1911 - Family Time Stamp set, S1912 - Reindeer Crossing stamp set, Candy Apple, Ruby, Evergreen, Peach, Smoothie & Black ink pads.   

This card is one from the Cedar & Pine cardmaking workshop and was created using Black, Linen & White Daisy cardstock, Z3531 Stamp & Thin Cuts set, Intense Black & Saffron ink pads, Spectrum Noir Tri Blend Markers, 3D Foam Tape.

This simple card was created using  Kraft & White Daisy cardstock, a Zip strip from the Cedar & Pine bulk paper, S1911 - Family Time stamp set, Black, Fern, Mink & Saffron ink pads, Clear Sparkles - coloured with Spectrum Noir maker, 3D Foam tape.

For this card, I used  White Daisy cardstock, Gold Glitter paper, Cedar & Pine paper pack, Holly Jolly paper pack, CC101912 - Traditional Holiday stamp set, D1283 - Say it in Style stamp set, Intense Black, & Evergreen ink pads, Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers, Gold Glitter Gems, 3D Foam Tape.

And this card (similar to the one above) was created using  White Daisy cardstock, Cedar & Pine paper, Holly Jolly paper, Gold Glitter paper, S1911 - Family Time Stamp set, D1283 - Say it in Style stamp set, Black, Candy Apple, Evergreen & Ruby ink pads.

For this little box (that perfectly fits 2 Ferrero Rocher choclates but could be used for any little gift) I used White Daisy Cardstock for the box, with Peach cardstock and Cedar & Pine paper. The cute little elf is from the Holly Jolly Cardmaking kit and was coloured with Spectrum Noir markers and some stickles added to his hat pom pom. 

The Cedar & Pine collection is available till 31st December (WSL), so get yours today. 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 Dannii from Dannii's Scrappy Chicks has created!

I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Don't forget to come back soon and see what is NEW and what I have been creating.

Happy Crafting

Christmas is coming .....

Can you believe we are now only just over 3 weeks away from Christmas? I have a few specials and projects to share with you as we head into one of the busiest times of the year!

I missed out on being a part of the Stamp of the Month blog hop but I want to share a couple of cards I have managed to create using this cute stamp set available during December only!

For this card, I used White Daisy cardstock with some Holly Jolly paper. I stamped the sleigh with Intense Black ink then coloured it with the spectrum Noir Tri-Blend  markers (but you could use your favourite colouring medium)! I stamped the reindeer using Mink ink and the sentiment in Candy Apple. 

This is one of my favourite cards this year - I love the simplicity. I used White Daisy cardstock - embossing the background with the stitched circles embossing folder (which is only available in the online section of my website with not many left in stock).  The pine cones and leaves were stamped with Espresso & Fern ink pads, and the sentiment with the Espresso ink pad. I added some White & Gold twine to finish off my card. 3D Foam tape added some dimension to the card. 

Documenting your favourite memories and moments with your pals with paws is now easier than ever thanks to the Best Friends Furever special. Cat-lovers & dog-lovers alike will swoon over the Best Friends Furever Cut Above® kit, which features 6″ × 8″ pre-printed base pages with reversible die-cuts featuring dog-focused sentiments and images on one side and cat-focused ones on the other! Create even more fun, pet-themed projects using the Best Friends Furever paper pack, and coordinating stamp sets, Eat Play Love and Kitty Cuddles. We’ve even assembled a workshop kit containing paper, stamps, cardstock and more, available to you at a 20% discount!
