Beautiful Friendship Blog Hop

If you arrived here from Megan's Crop Craft Create, welcome. Join in and hop around!

This hop features our Beautiful Friendship collection. The combination of pinks and yellow florals mixed with navy and gray teapots makes for a lovely versatile palette.
There's papers, stickers, stampsets, thin cut dies, embellishments, and kits to choose from in this collection. I used the paper packet, cardstock, and the cardmaking thin cuts bundle to create this card and layout.

My mother in law's mother's day card. :)
I gifted my mother in law and sister in law a treat and cuppa for mother's day. When we go have our excursion, this is the layout I'm using to document it. I maaaaaaaaaay have gone a bit overboard with the dovetailed banners.
Tea for Three layout. The toffee paper helped lift the colors and makes the yellow pop.
Easy journaling prompts on a PML card. I used the SOTM for these.
Stamped, die cut, and layered banners with a bit of bling.
More banners!
Yep, more banners. Couldn't help myself!

To make these projects, I used my basic toolkit plus these materials. Click through to purchase or contact your consultant. Basic Toolkit: (Versamat, Trimmer, Ruler, Adhesive Runner, Stamping Starter Kit, Blocks, Nonstick Microtip Scissors), Beautiful Friendship Paper Packet Coordinating Cardstock and Stamp + Thin Cuts, Classic Summer Bash and Angel Policy Stampsets, Basic Banners and Block Alphabet Thin Cuts, Sparkles, Gold Glitter Gems, Bashful Shimmer Brush, Heather Pacifica Bashful and Toffee Exclusive Inks, Make It from Your Heart™ Volume 3 and Journaling Pen.

I used the gift card box thin cuts along with Postcard Perfect paper packet and Stampset to create these gift boxes. The boxes are made from the ombre and floral papers. The stamped images are all fussy cut and stuck down then embellished with some blingy bits. Inside is a message and a gift for the recipients.

Classic Summer Bash SoTM Blog Hop

If you arrived here from Vandra's Virtual Craftroom, welcome. Join in and hop around!

This hop features our May Stamp of the Month: S1805 Classic Summer Bash. It's a set of 25, yes twenty five!, different images that are perfect for any crafting for your next backyard bash, party, drink recipe, or barbecue.
CTMH Australasian Blog Hop

Isn't it adorable? I decided to make this bright and bubbly card. I really like having another mason jar stamp and decided to use it on some dot vellum to create a jar. The straw is actually a zipstrip from Postcard Perfect! I was about to stamp one then saw this scrap and used it instead. The dots on the vellum looked like bubbles so I reinforced that idea with some gold gems. A few thin cut letters and tracing later and voila! Its definitely bound to cheer someone up. ;)

Sketch 259

I went very much off the page with this sketch.
I created little badges for our recent convention. All the Australasian blog hoppers that came (or that told me they were coming) got one of these to add to their lanyards. I'll be adding mine to my layouts!

In situ

I used the basic circle tags and basic circle thin cuts to cut these shapes. A little bit of rummaging through my stash resulted in finding my Australia stamp and my alphabets. Tada! A very quick and easy lil craft based on a quick sketch. 😊
