Georgie Workshop Kit - Australasian CTMH Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the CTMH Australasian Blog Hop featuring the
If you have arrived here from Lauren Moore - CTMH Craftings
then you are in the right place. Just click the link at the bottom of this post and you will hop over to the next blog. Don't forget to pin or save any ideas you like!

I have a few different ideas to show you today. You will see that the Stamp Set in the Georgie WOTG Kit is baby themed but I have created this double page layout featuring my dog Tasha to show you that you can use this pack for any theme. At my workshop one of my ladies used this layout for a man's birthday.

I stamped the "2 years 3 months" and "sweet" and the tiny heart with the included stamp set. I then used bows, gems and twine to embellish.

The next project was for a baby shower card and gift for my cousin.

I made the card using this month's Stamp of the Month "Celebrate With Cake", colouring the cakes with Watercolour Pencils and blending with a wet paintbrush. I then made a gift card holder as the envelope and embellished with elephants from the Assortment pack and Green Shimmer Trim. 
There are white enamel gems on the front of the card too.

 I used the "Congratulations" from Cute Koalas D1642 stamp set and the onesie on the inside of the card.

I also made a bag full of 3x3" Thank you cards using the Animal Greetings (D1679) stamp set. $7USD from the sale of each stamp set goes to Operation Smile! The parents-to-be will now have plenty of thank you cards to send out after the baby is born. Don't you just love it when everything is matching?!

Celebrate With Cake S1605 - CTMH Australasian SOTM Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Close To My Heart 2016
Celebrate With Cake
Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.

If you have arrived here from
you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link to the next blog at the end of this post.

Today I would like to share with you a layout I have made for my daughter's birthday featuring the May Stamp of the Month, Celebrate With Cake S1605. This stamp set is available only in May 2016 for $27, or for just $7.50 when you place an order of $75 or more. 

I have also used the new Calypso WYW Kit which has just been released today with our new Seasonal Expressions 2!

 To start with I stamped the 5 cake stands onto a piece of White Daisy cardstock (or Watercolour paper) 11.5" x 4". I then stamped the different cake pieces and then it was time to colour in!
I used our Watercolour Paints (which are so smooth and gorgeous to use) to colour in a combination of all the different cakes and cake stands in the set. You could also use our Exclusive Inks stamp pads and a waterbrush , ShinHan Markers or Watercolour Pencils to colour in our stamps!

I then arranged my photos and decided on the flamingo PML card to go on the right hand page. Next I just built up some clusters of vellum accents, stickers, sequins, zip strips and papers to embellish. I used the pineapple Washi Tape and the flamingo Washi Tape too! Love it!
