CTMH Australasian Spruced Up Blog Hop

Hi & welcome to our CTMH Australasian Spruced Up Blog Hop! If you arrived from Maz's blog, you are on the right track. If you arrived here by accident, I hope you will hop around and see what everyone has created using this versatile Spruced Up collection!

I have been busy creating with this collection ready for my upcoming workshop and to build up my card collection so I will have cards on hand as needed during the year!

This first layout - which now has photos on it (but I haven't taken pictures of the the completed pages) was created using White Daisy, Sangria, Mink & Julep cardstock, Spruced Up paper pack with stickers, CTMH Artbooking Cricut collection, CTMH You Are Here Cricut collection, Julep Loose Sequins &Thin 3D Foam Tape to add some dimension to the title.  I also added extra photos to this layout with Flip Flaps and Memory Protectors Plus, Design 1.

This layout is a favourite! I want to add some different techniques to some of my projects this year, so this workshop by Julie Carriere of The Scrap Zone was perfect! I changed up Julie's layout to suit. I love the torn & inked edges on this layout! I created it using White Daisy, Espresso, Mink & Sangria cardstock, Spruced Up paper pack with stickers, Artbooking, Flower Market & You Are Here cricut collections, Z3633 - Spruced Up Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts, Espresso & Evergreen ink pads, Clear Shimmer Brush, Thin Foam Tape, Small Round Water Brush & Edge Distresser. 

The first 3 cards are my version of the cards from the Spruced Up card making workshop. I changed them up a little to suit me. I love the colours in these papers!

For this card,  I used Espresso, Julep, French Vanilla & Sangria cardstock, Spruced Up Paper, Z3633 - Spruced Up Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts set, Espresso & Julep ink pads, Thin White & Gold  Ribbon &Thin 3D Foam Tape.

This card was created using Sangria & White Daisy cardstock, Z3633 - Spruced Up Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts, Mink, Julep & Sangria ink pads, Silver Embellishing Thread, Thin 3D Foam Tape & 3D Foam Tape.

Another thing I plan on doing this year is to use up some of the bits I have in my stash! I did that in these next two cards. This first one was created using Julep & White Daisy cardstock, Spruced Up paper, Z3624 - Celebrate Embossing Folder, Z3625 - Happy Birthday Shaker Window, Julep & Silver Loose Sequins, Burlap Ribbon (retired), Sandpaper (retired).

This next one was created using White Daisy & Sangria cardstock, Spruced Up paper pack (Zip Strip), Green Burlap Ribbon (retrired), Julep Loose Sequins.

For this card, I used  White Daisy & Sangria cardstock, Spruced Up paper pack, Z3639 - Scallop Circle Thin Cuts, Basic Circle Thin Cuts, S2001 - Everyday Magic stamp set, Black ink pad, Gold Loose Sequins & White & Gold Ribbon.

My last card is a step card.  It was created using White Daisy & Julep cardstock, Spruced Up paper pack, Z3633 - Spruced Up Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts, D1283 - Say It In Style stamp set, Espresso & Julep ink pads, Water Colour pencils & 3D Foam Tape.  To make it easier for me to recreate this card in the future, I created a Design Space file so I can easily cut the base on my cricut. You are welcome to use this file to create your own cards, but please do not sell this file:

The Spruced Up collection is available WSL till the end of February. Contact your consultant to get yours or I am happy to help you if you do not have a consultant and you live in Australia. You can contact me here!
