Stargazer Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stargazer blog hop, if you arrived here from Rachel's Creative Workshops you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance, I hope you like what you see and just click on the link at the end of this post and be inspired by what everyone else has created.

Oh my this paper collection and stamp sets are wonderful and so much fun to work with. I love the bright colours and the positive reinforcement sentiments of the stamp are really great.  


I am so privileged to be part of a big family and that we enjoy spending time together. Watching the kids grow up and mature I get a glimpse of what sort of adults they will be. They each have their own distinct personalities, good and bad characteristics and are real stars to me. I have high hopes for all of them, I know they are all super in my eyes. So I decided to create a layout to show them that I think they are all super kids.

To celebrate a super hero's birthday we need a super hero's card and this is what I have made. I wanted to show Super Girl flying so this is what I came up with. Close To My Heart have a fabulous special on the thin cuts, stamp and thin cut sets. You can save 25% on all available Thin Cuts, and 30% on select bundles, check it out on my website Even though I find fussy cutting quite relaxing using the thin cuts for certain images is so much easier. I cut the super girl image twice because when you colour the image, it sometimes bleeds through and I didn't want that to be seen. This pop up card is really easy to make, the white insert is 7.5" x 4.75", once folded in half make a mark 2.5" from center fold on both sides and also 2.5" down from top of center fold. Then make a score line from each side to the center mark. Once scored fold to make up the pop up detail. You can see a video here with instructions
