Hello Lovely Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Hello Lovely blog hop, if you arrived here from Lauren Moore you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance no worries just click on the link at the end of this post to continue the hop.

This is the most beautiful paper collection and embellishments, and it is so versatile. I have used it for a number of layouts of various themes previously but for this hop I have created two cards. The different colours blend so beautifully together, I just love this collection.

Here are my two cards, I decided to used just the elements in the compliments pack and the printed cards . Because the beautiful flowers are adhesive and I wanted the embellishments to not lay flat on the card I adhered them to Daisy White cardstock and then cut them out. This allowed me to place the flowers where I wanted and have them  looking like they are peeking out from behind this paper.

For this second card I fussy cut around one of the printed cards in the paper pack and adhered it to the side of my card. I added the hearts, clear gems, the corner decoration and a bow to finish off the card. Both of these cards were quick and easy to complete.

I hope you are enjoying the hop and getting lots of ideas to use with this very "lovely" collection. To continue just hop along to Vandra to see what she has created and shared. Please take a moment to leave a comment we all appreciate your comments.

February Stamp of the Month Blog Hop Easter Bunny

Welcome to the Australasian CTMH "Stamp of the Month" Blog Hop if you arrived here from  Anne Patterson's Annespirations you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance I hope you like what you see, just click on the link at the end of this post to go to the next blog. I am sure there will be some great ideas shared.

This month's stamp set is Easter Bunny S1702 and what a beauty it is. I love the cute little bunnies and the sentiments are fabulous. You can buy this gorgeous stamp set for $27.00 or just $7.50 with a $75.00 order. There are 12 stamps in this set.

A special little girl is having her birthday later this week and I wanted to make something to decorate the party room so I created this birthday bunting. I stamped the images on water colour paper and then painted the images with our lovely water colour paints Z3132. Using our Non stick Micro tip scissors Z1836 made fussy cutting the rabbits quite easy. I also used the Flower Marker Cricut cartridge to cut the letters, the size is 2". Each pennant is 6" x 4" and then I dovetailed the end.

                            Here is a close up of some of the individual pennants of the bunting.

My second project is also an off the page item, this stamp set lends itself to creating cute projects. I used the cardboard frames that came with my first CTMH Cricut Cartridge but you can cut this shape with the Art Philosophy cartridge. The frames are 21/2" square, I used Cashmere Ink to colour the frames. I then stamped various images on grey paper from the Hello Lovely Paper Pack. Once again I used the water colour paints to colour my rabbits. The ribbon is 17" long and 1/4" wide, I used glue dots to adhere the ribbon to the back of the frames.

I hope you are enjoying this hop, to continue go to Shaunna Richards Passionate About Pages to see her great project. Please take a moment to leave a comment we do read and appreciate them.
