S2109 - Grateful for this Life CTMH Australasian Stamp of the Month Blog Hop


Hi and welcome to our S2109 - Grateful for this Life CTMH Australasian Blog Hop. If you arrived from Danielle's Scrappy Chicks blog, you are on the right track. If this is your starting point, I hope you will continue on our blog hop to see what the other ladies have created.

When I saw the NEW September - October catalogue (it is live today), I loved the layout on page 24 so, of course, I had to recreate it. 

I used some left over papers from another project using the NEW As You Grow collection from the NEW Annual catalogue (also live today). To create my version of the page, I traced an 8.5" circle onto the centre of my page using a template I had on my desk (you could use a plate), then I cut strips of paper and in widths of between 1/2" and 1.25" into lengths of between 1.5" & 2.5". (I think there were about 60 strips used). Then, using the circle as a guide, I laid the strips around the page and adhered once I was happy with colour and pattern placement - I wasn't too fussy. I stamped 'Thankful' on NEW Harbour cardstock using Versamark ink and White Embossing powder.  Then, using Black stamp pad, I stamped the other sentiments on White Daisy cardstock - 3/4" wide and long enough for the sentiment. I then used a Black Journalling Pen to doodle around each sentiment and around the White Daisy base.  All the sentiments and title were added to the page using 3D Foam Tape to add some dimension.  The photo mat is also from the NEW Harbour cardstock - this is going to be a favourite of mine! Now I just need to get a photo of my family to add to the page!
