CTMH Australasian Blog Hop - S1702 Easter Bunny - SOTM



CTMH Australasian Blog Hop - S1702 Easter Bunny - SOTM


Hello and welcome aboard our Close To My Heart February 2017 Easter Bunny Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Vandra's Virtual CTMH Craftroom, you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. 

Today, I would like to share with you a couple of cards that I have created featuring the February Stamp of the Month, Eater Bunny. This stamp set is available only in February 2017 for $27, or for just $7.50 when you spend $75 or more.

I had so much fun revisiting an oldie from many years ago that I had forgotten about until a fellow consultant blogger, Maz shared her card through out Australasia by our Presidential Director Susan at our Christmas training day. 
This Front Step card was fun and I am sure will make some one happy at Easter.
Using the February Stamp of Month I stamped the images using Memento Ink then coloured with my ShinHans and fussy cut. I sponge distressed the back of the card to resemble the bunnies walking in the meadows. I used the All About the Gold Fundamentals to cover the front of the card. 



This second card I created is a another blast from the past. I just loved this Z fold card. it allows so many options with the front but today I have just added the white daisy rectangle with a cranberry mat. I used the Marvy® Uchida® LePen™ Journaling Pen to add some doodling. I stamped the bunny and once again I have used the ShinHan markers to colour him. I added a cranberry heart  cut out using the new Basic heart Thincuts. Then the sentiment on top using the thin 3-D Foam tape.



On the inside  I added a bigger cranberry heart cut using the heart thin cuts and added some faux stitching around edge.


These lovely ideas also using the February stamp of month along with "Hello Lovely" range and the new Blush Ribbon, were designed by Close To My Heart. They are just so sweet.

I love the Foundational How-To publications and today I created a simple Double Page scrapbook layout using the  Magic Scrapbooking program page 98 "Abracadabra" and changed it slightly.


Starting with glacier as my base pages. I used Sunset & Flaxen Cardstock along with the Beautiful new Dreamin' Big Paper pack now available from the all new Seasonal Expressions as of January 1st 2017. 
I also used Slate & White Daisy Cardstock for stamping with Memento Black ink. Some of the embellishments were cut using the Thincuts now available for a limited time. On the XOXO I also used Liquid Glass. I used ShinHan Markers to colour the flowers and leaves on the embellishments

Close up of stamped Flower image coloured with ShinHan Markers, then fussy cut with the micro tipped scissors.

Beginners & School Students Class


Beginners & School Students Class

Well Christmas is fast approaching, which is seeing all my Christmas groups coming to an end or breaking fro the year.
After a few requests I decided to run this class, which I am so happy to say it was fully booked, not bad for my first.
They all created a 6x8 mini Kraft Album of some of their favourite memories, with room to expand.
I am super proud of all these girls in this class, Most of them were quiet achievers and I can honestly say with a small challenge the last 2 months they did extremely well, creating their own layouts.
Throughout the year they learnt so many techniques while preserving their memories. I have attached a few of their favourite pages and a few of the layouts I taught them
