Tutti Frutti - SOTM Blog Hop

Hello! And welcome to the August Stamp of the Month blog hop. Tonight we have 12 consultants featuring artwork using Tutti Fruiti Summer in their artwork. If you are joining me from Darlys Recker you are in the right place! 




Let's take a look at the project I have for you!


I used the Honeycomb embossing folder (sorry, its retired) and paired it with Sundance card stock and sanded the top to expose the white core. I used the Sundance zip strip from the Wander collection and matted it with White Daisy to help it pop. I used our Stitched Circles Thin Cuts and cut one out one of the large with White Daisy card stock. I stamped the "Hello" sentiment in Intense Black. I coloured the lemon with Spectrum Noir Citrus Blend marker. I then stamped the droplets in Sundance in second generation stamping. I finished the card off with two white dots and a white acrylic heart.

Canada Hop for July and August idea book

Hello and welcome to the Canada blog hop! Tonight we have consultants from across Canada featuring products from the Close to my Heart July/August Idea Book. If you are joining me from Sabrina at Creating with Crimson you are in the right place! 

For tonights project I am featuring a layout I did for my monthly workshop featuring the Wander paper pack. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this paper pack and will be buying so much more of it. I love the cottage, outdoorsy feel of this one. I came up with this S'mores themed layout. I had so much fun making this layout. 


I used Linen card stock for the base pages and then added the Sapphire sky like patterned paper to create a night sky type of affect. I added the Sapphire geometric pattern and the camping / hiking print as well. 

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the title and Marshmallow sticks. The campfire is from the Wander Cricut Collection (you can find it here!) I added some details with stamping on a Stitched Circle and used the Wander card making stamp and thin cut set to stamp the "cheers to s'more years" in the upper right corner and finished it off with some white dots from the Black and White dots embellishments.

Feeling of Christmas - H2H Challenges

 Hello! Happy Monday to you! I come to you today with a difficult post, a Christmas Post. At H2H Challenges we are all about celebrating Christmas in July. The reason this is difficult for me is I am a summer girl through and through and while I love Christmas I am not a fan of cold Canadian winters and Christmas reminds me that the 27 months of winter will be upon us soon enough!

For my card today, I broke out my White Pines scraps, I had more than I thought of it, and created this quick and relatively painless Christmas card. I used the White Pines Scrapbooking stamp set, this is one of my all time favourite Christmas stamps. Ink colours are Fern and Cranberry and I matted the sentiment in Fern and finished it off with some gold pearls.

July-August New Product Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our blog hop tonight featuring new products that you can find in the CTMH July/August idea book. If you are joining me from the super talented Becca Whitham, welcome!  If you are starting here at my blog, welcome, we are glad to have you! We have 14 consultants sharing projects with us tonight so be sure to scroll through all the blogs by clicking the links at the end of each blog post. 



Now, onto the artwork! For tonight's project I am featuring our Wander paper pack. I love, love, love this paper pack and will be buying lots of it. For me and most of my customers the colours in this one paper was more of a desert feel to it (and while I do have pictures that will work with that from my childhood) living in Ontario, Canada we have more cottage than desert pictures so with the help of my Cricut and the Wander Cricut collection (click here to view it) I changed the feel of the paper to create a more cottage feel for both me and my customers. 



As you can see, this is the original design of the paper:



And I wanted to make a more cottage feel so I used the layout below that comes with the Wander Cricut collection to cut out the sand in Toffee, grass in Evergreen and water inGlacier card stock and layered it over the Paprika, Sundance and Peacock.  I also used the cloud from the layout below but cut them in White Daisy.  


For some added details, I "fussy" cut the title sticker that said Wander apart and popped the letters up with foam dimensional tape. The sun below, I took some Sundance card stock and cut the 2nd largest stitched Circle thin cut and popped it up over the spot where the sun was on the printed paper and stuck a cloud behind the sun. 



To finish the layout off, I added some White dots from the Black and White dots set, some trees that I cut out from the CTMH Timber Cricut collection and added some stickers from the sticker sheet. 

I hope you like the changes I made to this paper to adapt it more to fit the needs of the pictures I have.
