I Heart Us Blog Hop

Welcome to the the CTMH Australasian  blog hop, if you arrived here from Shaunna's Passionate About Pages you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance I hope you see something you like. To continue the hop click on the link at the end of this post.

This is a wonderful collection, the colours and patterns of the papers are beautiful and the stickers are so gorgeous.There are two stamps sets that coordinate with this collection, I have only used one.

For this layout I have used some of the papers, a selection of the paper flowers, stickers and one of the stamps from the I heart Us Cardmaking kit. I love this sentiment "ours is a beautiful  friendship" These two friends really are my besties

I keep trying to improve my water colour painting and I am rather happy with this effort. I stamped the flowers and leaves with Pebble ink. I wanted the background to be a softer colour so I decided to use some vellum paper on top of the blue and I liked the look of the striped one but the gold stripe was too bright so I turned it over and much preferred this look. I love the pink pearls.

Blue and white is one of my favourite colour combinations and I especially like the Carolina Blue in our range. I decided to use this cardstock and heat emboss with the white embossing powder and the flower stamp. I have also used the new Swiss Dot Embossing Folder, the hello thin cut, some white ribbon and a little bling.

Thanks again for stopping by to continue the hop go to Vandra's Virtual Craftroom and see what wonderful project she has to share. Your comments are always appreciated so please take a moment and leave a comment.


  1. How great to celebrate a friendship in this way Doris. What a beautiful page.

  2. These colours are perfect for your friends photos, Doris. Love your page! And that last card is in my favourite colours. Love the White on Blue!

  3. Your watercolour floral card is just beautiful- I love the elegant touch that the pearls add.

  4. Love all your creations, I really like your clusters on the scrapbook layout & love the water colour flowers.

  5. Oh Doris, another set of stunning cards and pages! <3 <3 <3

  6. Perfect page for those flowery friendly photos. Great use of the complements in clusters. Your cards show some fabulous techniques that are so inspiring. I get so many ideas for cards when I see what you've given us, those techniques would suit many other applications. I can't wait to give them a go!
