CTMH Party Time Australasian Blog Hop

 


Hi & welcome to our CTMH Party Time Australasian Blog Hop. If you arrived from Kimmy Adds Sparkle's blog, you are in the right place. If you arrived from elsewhere, thank you for stopping by. I hope you will continue on the hop to see what all the others have created using this collection. This collection is so bright & cheery and I have had fun creating with it. 

The first project I want to share with you was inspired by a cube card by Dawn Griffiths and was created using White Daisy & Lemonade cardstock, Party Time paper pack & stickers, White & Gold Twine. This card folds flat and fits in a 6" x 6" envelope.


For my next card, I used the NEW Waterfall Thin Cuts from Close To My Heart. This is one of my new favourite tools from the new catalogues!
The card was created using White Daisy & Peacock cardstock, Party Time paper pack & stickers, Waterfall Thin Cuts, M1277 - Swirly Happy Birthday stamp set, Z3779 - Wishing You Everything stamp & thin cuts, Peacock & Intense Black ink pads, Spectrum Noir Tri-blend markers - Citrus Yellow, Blue Turquoise, Light Green & White & Gold Twine. These cards are so much fun to make! 




The final project I want to share with you today is some pages ready to add pics of a family celebration. To create this project, I used White Daisy, Ballerina, Lemonade, Lagoon & Sapphire Cardstock, Party Time Paper pack & Stickers, Z3779 - Wishing You Everything stamp and thin cuts set, Sapphire & Lagoon Ink Pads & Silver Glitter Gems. The layout of these pages were created using the Extended Story cutting guide available from your consultant. I love how I can mix different sized pages into my 12" x 12" albums and they work! 






The Party Time Collection is available for a whole year - till August 2021 from your consultant. If you don't have a consultant and live in Australia, you can check out the collection & much more, on my website.  

I would love you to leave a comment before you continue on our blog hop to see what Doris has created.

Stay safe & well.

Happy crafting.

I have been madly preparing for my postponed annual Scrapbooking Retreat so have only created two projects using this stamp set, so far. The first layout was inspired by one taught at the CTMH Virtual Album retreat back in May. The squares are created by cutting a circle then folding the edges over a square shape (or you can score the square into the circles, then fold). I used White Daisy, Cinnamon, Espresso, Fern & Sundance cardstock, Artistry Cricut collection for title, Bloom With Grace paper pack, Gold Glitter Gems, Toffee Shimmer Brush, Glisten Stickles, S2009 - Here for the Memories stamp set & Espresso ink pad to create this layout that the girls got to make over the weekend.



For this layout, I was inspired by Layout 2G in the Reflections idea book. To make the page, I used White Daisy, Fern & Sangria cardstock, Bloom with Grace paper pack, Everyday Moments Cricut Collection, S2009 - Here for the Memories stamp set, Fern & Sangria ink pads, Sponge Dauber & White & Gold Twine. 


The S2009 - Here for the Memories stamp set is only available during September so don't miss out on getting yours.

Timber - the CTMH featured collection for August

I missed out on participating in the CTMH Australasian Blog Hop for the Timber collection as time got away from me, but I have had so much fun creating with this collection that I still want to share my projects with you!

This collection is perfect for all the masculine pics you have, but it is also very versatile. I did use it for many of my pics from my trip to Yellowstone NP and beyond with my daughter last year.

For my first layout, I used a Sketch by Chris Robertson (Creative Collaboration Community) as my inspiration and Kraft, New England Ivy, Ruby & White Daisy cardstock, Timber paper pack, Aurora Cricut collection, Gold Shimmer Trim &White & Gold Twine


This next layout was created using White Daisy, Ruby, New England Ivy, Espresso & Mink cardstock, Timber paper pack, Z3722 - Here & There stamp & thin cuts, Black ink pad, Artistry Cricut Collection, Aurora Cricut Collection & Stitched Squares Thin Cuts. The right page is a spinner page that I learnt from Susan Williams as part of the Creative Collaboration community.

And for this page I was inspired by Quartet - Pinwheel layout 8b - Reflections Idea Book (p107) and usedEspresso, Ruby, French Vanilla & White Daisy cardstock, Timber Paper Pack, You Are Here Cricut Collection and 6" x 4" & 3" x 4" Flip Flaps.

The last layout I want to share with you today is also a Spinner page and was created using White Daisy, Ruby, Espresso & Evergreen cardstock, Timber paper pack, You Are Here & Aurora Cricut Collections &Stitched Squares Thin Cuts.

The medallion on this card was an idea shared by Susan Williams too. The card was created using Ruby, Sapphire & White Daisy cardstock, Timber paper pack, D1283 - Say it in Style stamp set, Ruby ink pad & a Silver Brad .

For this card I used White Daisy cardstock, Timber Paper pack, C1856 - Little Buddies stamp set, Black Memento  ink pad & Spectrum Noir  Tri-Blend Markers.

I often struggle with masculine cards, but for this simple one, I used  Espresso & Linen cardstock, Timber paper pack, Stitched Circles Thin Cuts, C1847 - Celebrating You stamp set, Black ink pad & White Burlap Ribbon.

This spinner card was created using White Daisy & New England Ivy cardstock, Timber paper pack, Z3735 - A Koala-ty Day stamp & thin cuts, Black Memento ink pad, Stitched Squares Thin Cuts, Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers, 3D Foam Tape & Cricut DS to cut circle for spinner.
