Falling For You and Cats and Bats Blog Hop

Welcome to our blog hop, if you arrived here from Kara's blog you are in the right place if you arrived here by chance I hope you see something you like.

We are showcasing two Paper Collections in this hop,Falling for You and Cats and Bats, these are both lovely collections

Here is the Falling for You workshop your way kit G1135.
For my first project I used Pattern 23 from the new Make It From Your Heart Vol.3 How To book 9043

I used two different pattern papers, a zip strip and a narrow piece of Pixie cardstock. Also a few gems, the Happy Birthday Thin Cut  and various stamps. For the title I used one of the Pocket cards. The great thing about using sketches is you can alter the sketch to suit your photos.

This project uses the papers from the Bats and Cats collection G1136. I have used the same sketch as in the first layout but I have rotated the design.

I wanted to show off the beautiful National Stamping month stamp set as well so I have created a card using the Bats and Cats paper and this stamp. The stamp set is called From the Heart CC1228, don't you just love it.

September Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the September Stamp of the Month blog hop, if you arrived here from Colleen's blog you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance I hope you see something you like.

The "Feel So Blessed" S1709 stamp set is lovely and it will be so versatile with both scrapbooking or card making projects.

I have created three projects for this hop and had such fun with them. We don't celebrate Thanksgiving Day in Australia like they do in America but there is always so much that I am thankful for that I wanted to create a layout representing just a handful of the many reasons that I do have to be thankful for. This is what I would call  a random layout, you know those layouts that fill in the blank spots between events. I have used six of the different stamps in this set with a few others from my collection of stamps, plus the thin cut hearts.

I decided to make two different Thank You cards using the "Thanks" stamp from this set, a masculine and a feminine card. This first card also uses the feather stamp. I used Glacier, Sapphire and Cashmere inks for the feathers and Cashmere ink with one of the Splash of Colour D1733 stamps for the background behind the feathers. Thanks for everything was stamped with Sapphire ink.

 I found a similar card on Pinterest and used it as inspiration for this card. It is called a Diagonal Split card and you can find a video here to explain how to make it. I used the "Beautiful You Stamp and Thin Cuts set Z3384. I stamped the roses with Bashful and Pixie Inks. Thanks was stamped with Black ink and the lovely Bashful Pearls Z3369 finished off this card.
