Kylie’s International Blog Hop


G’Day Stampers.

Once again I am taking part in Kylie’s International Highlights Hop for January.

Thank you to everyone who voted for me last month as I happened to be one of the Top Ten winners.  

This month the theme is Encouragement.

Do you know anyone you can send encouragement to?  Maybe a Get Well Ssoon – or WOW, You are Amazing, even a Thank You card?  This is a great way to think of something that you want to build up and give some love.  Another option that I use a lot is “Just Because”. 

Do you recognize my card?  I will be honest with you & say my inspiration came from the front cover of the 2019 Occasions Catalogue.  It just goes to show that inspiration can come from everywhere.

bloom-by-bloom---insideTo create my card I’ve used my favourite DSP from the Occasions Catalogue & that is the Gingham GalaI’ve teamed it up with a stamp set that I just can’t seem to get enough of & that is the Bloom by Bloom set.  I didn’t really think I would like it but oh how I was wrong!

By clicking on the link below you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own card.  The tutorial includes both the products used & the measurements (metric & imperial).

Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop


Today I am hoping along with the Global Stamping Friends Blog Hop.  The hop includes International Demos from all over the world.

This month it is all Memories & More.  Using these packs makes creating scrapbook pages just so easy.  In saying that they are fantastic for quick & easy cards too & would you believe I don’t have any packs.

Deciding that this was not going to stop me, I decided to create my own to fit in with one of the pages from the 12″ x 12″ Variety Pack Pages.  Click on this link here & you will be able to choose from lots of different options to create your pages.  Of course, there are ones in the 2019 Occasions Catalogue that you can use too.

I’ve used the lovely Happiness Blooms Suite which becomes available today.  The flowers are from the matching “Bloom by Bloom” Stamp Set.  I didn’t think I would like it but I am loving the bright colours in the Suite.

I used the If you have been reading my blog, you will know that all my pages are created for my niece.  Every now & then I bundle a few pages to post down to her.  Some pages have photos, others don’t.  Some have journaling, others don’t.

Why not give them a go whether it be scrapbooking or cards.

By clicking on the link above the photo, you will be able to download a free tutorial to create your own version.  The tutorial includes a list of products used, measurements (metric & imperial).
