WYW Cardmaking Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our Workshop Your Way Cardmaking Blog Hop.


If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can start at the beginning with Melinda's Blog as she has the complete list. If you came here from SNIPS, SNAPS & SCRAPS you are in the right place. Now on to my project: 



So I used the Mother's Day Cardmaking WYW Kit to make some thank you cards and Mother's Day cards. I was iffy at first buying the kit because I find the cards a bit plain but in the end I realized with a little bit a adding my own touch you can still follow the simple instructions to make amazing cards quickly!

For this kit I decided to use the Silver shimmer trim and did all four versions of the cards they give instructions for.





Then I used the stamp of the month last month to make this one for my Grandma:


Here are the other two I ended up doing as well.






Using the contents of the kit I ended up making about 10 cards. It was fantastic! This encouraged me to buy more kits like this in the future! They give you a good starting point to make these cards and a fantastic stamp set! Love it! I think we are already sold out of this particular kit but there are still some left of the other three so hurry up and get them before they sell out! Last month!

Mother's Day Cardmaking WYW

CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Vellum Makes Everything Better

Hello and welcome to our CTMH Technique Blog Hop.This week we are featuring our vellum paper.


If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can start at the beginning with Melissa's Blog as she has the complete list. If you came here from SCRAP N ROLL you are in the right place. Now on to my project: 




For my project today I decided I wanted to use up some of the leftover PML cards from the Forever & Always Cut Above Kit. It was the last layout I needed for my wedding album and it couldn't be too "girly". I used the copper stripped vellum pieces from the Rustic Home Collection and flipped it over to get "silver" type lines instead of the copper. As you can tell it is behind the flower card and photos in the last picture. The right strip of white wood grain patterned paper were two PML cards from the Forever & Always Cut Above Kit as well. ;)

I used many different paper and scraps from here and there to complete this page, bringing it all together. I was quite pleased with the way it turned out. Don't forget that our Cut Above kits are only 9.50$ this month only! While supplies last.

Supply List:
Rustic Home Paper Pack
Forever & Always Cut Above PML Cards
Live Beautifully Stamp Set
Live Beautifully Cut Above embellishment (the black leaves)

Constant Campaign Blog Hop - Thin Cuts

Hello and welcome to our Constant Campaign Blog Hop. This week we are featuring our Thin Cuts.


If you have just joined us you can start here and continue on, as this is a circular hop or if you get lost along the way you can start at the beginning with Melinda's Blog as she has the complete list. If you came here from SHEILA'S STAMPING STUFF you are in the right place. Now on to my project: 



This is a very simple layout that came with the Dreamin' Big Workshop Your Way instructions. I thought it was perfect for my pictures. But of course the fox in the Some Kinda Wonderful Cardmaking stamp set was so darn cute I just had to add it. I love that CTMH has coordinating stamp set with a thin cuts package. Amazing. This layout was simple, quick and beautiful. 

I stamped the fox with our archival black ink and then used our amazing waterpaints and brushes to color it in. Then I just went over the outline of the fox with our journaling pen just to make the image a bit sharper. Hope you like it.

This set is so versatile you can add the cute little characters to pretty much everything. Love it. Don't forget you can get it at 25% off this month!

Here is a look at all the stamps offered in this set:

Cross Canada Hop - Language Stamps

Bonjour / Hola / Hello

Welcome to our March Blog Hop featuring CTMH stamp sets that are available in French, Spanish and English. When you flip through the catalogues those stamps are identified with a World globe. 


We have an amazing group of talented ladies all across Canada, and they sure would love to hear from you, so before hopping onto the next person, take a moment and leave a comment about what you loved.

If you've arrived from Donna of DAT'S MY STYLE then you are in the right place! If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, and continue from East Coast to West Coast, you can start here “CREATIONS WITH MICHELLE


My family is a french speaking family. We speak French at home, at daycare, at school and I work in the French daycare so naturally I like to buy the French versions of our stamp sets. I was that lady who sent in a request every year for French stamps and starting with the new annual catalog we now have a handful per catalog. I love it!

 Here is a page I created that I am using for my title page of our new family album. In case you don't understand French "Aujourd'hui" means "Today" and "Tu rends mon coeur joyeux" means "You make my heart happy". I used two different stamp sets on this page. Hello Lovely Scrapbooking and Happy Heart.



I really like these two sets and they are extremely versatile for any layout or card.

I heat embossed the title as it is difficult to stamp ink over the vellum paper from the Rustic Home paper pack (backside). I used some leftover scraps and PML cards from the Hello Lovely paper pack to embellish. The flower bunch to the right of my youngest is cut out of a PML card. 

I also hand stitched a bit on my layout in the corners using our stitching guide ruler.

 
 Leave me a comment if you have any questions on my technique or if you like this page. :) Have a great day!

It has been awhile since I have participated in a Blog Hop. I've been just way too busy lately. I originally planned on making a beautiful scrapbook page but in the end I once again had no time. :( 

Oh well. Here is a card I made using the SOTM. I stamped with archival ink and used the waterbrush to paint in the flowers. I know the lighting in the picture is pretty bad but it is honestly beautiful up close. I did a lot of layering and used 3D tape. I plan on painting up a whole sheet of flowers and making a gorgeous layout using the technique. I can't wait to have the TIME! lol.

Did you know we now have Pocket Plus page protectors? It's awesome. They are 1/3 or 1/2 page memory protectors that allow you to add extra photos but still use it as part of your layout. I decided to test them out and absolutely love how it turned out. Something different and unique to add to the pages.






 And here is a closer look at the Pocket Plus pages. As you can see I put the embellishments on the outside of the plastic. Again, something different. I also made tabs for even more fun.
