Paper Garden S1509 - CTMH September SOTM Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our
Australasian Close To My Heart
SOTM Blog Hop.

Today I would like to share with you a double page layout which features September 2015 Stamp of the Month

available exclusively throughout September for $7.50 when you spend $75. Or just pay rrp of $27 for the SOTM if you don't need to order $75 worth this month. 

I really wanted to try background stamping with these stamps and as you can see, I went a little crazy with colour! I chose Cashmere, Sorbet and the new Pomegranate Inks and Cardstocks.

I started with the Cashmere Ink and randomly stamped different flowers on the White Daisy Cardstock. I then stamped in Sorbet and finished with Pomegranate. I chose Sorbet Cardstock to mat the photos and roughed up the edges with our Edge Distresser to show the white core of the cardstock.

I daubed the edges of the white journal box with Pomegranate and stamped another flower image.

I added a strip of Cashmere Cardstock along the top of the Sorbet photo mats. The Thick Twine down the sides is also our new colour Poppy Z3094.

I added a couple of Pomegranate Cardstock accents, some bling and our new Coral Shimmer Trim Z3088 along the bottom. 

I would love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next blog
