Love is All You Need blog hop

 Hello and welcome to the Australasian Close To My Heart Love is All You Need blog hop. If you arrived here from The Scrapbooking Photographer you are in the right place, if you arrived by chance just click on the link at the end of this post to go to the next blog.

This hop is will be a little different, we get to choose what products we want to use as long as it fits the description of "Love is All You Need". This means there will be a variety of products used, I have chosen the Now and Forever collection. I fell in love with this collection as soon as I saw it  aren't these papers divine!

The Now and Forever papers have a vintage look to them, so I knew what photo I wanted to use to create this page. This layout features my grandmother, my mother's mother and three of her children, my mum who is 91 wasn't yet born. There is a wee baby in my grandmother's arms that you have to look closely to see. 

I love it when CTMH designs a paper pack with papers that you can cut up to create embellishments, which I have done with the flower paper. I have also added a stamped flower, the flower and butterfly images uses two stamps to create the two tone look. I have added a few of the White Acrylic Flowers Z6035 and also some ink blending and stenciling as well. I used one of the Card Front Pattern Stencils Z4679. I will add the journalling soon.

We all love sending birthday cards and this card is filled with special delivery birthday wishes. I have used different papers from the Now and Forever pack to create this card, the presents and special delivery stamps are from the Seasonal Haul stamp and thin cut set Z4655.

Thank you for stopping by, now hop along to Scrappy Chicks to see more great ideas, I am sure Danielle will have something wonderful to share.

Happy crafting!
