CTMH Australasian Stampaganza Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Stampaganza Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Meryl's Blog, Mez's Craft Room, then 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 this layout featuring FOUR stamp sets, all of which are available under the March special of buy 3 stamp sets, get one free!

I wanted to create an earthy feel to this layout of our Boxing Day picnic, so I started off by watercoloring some frogs from Spring Critters and stamping some of the flowers from Shower Flowers. I fussy cut them to create my own colour coordinating embellishments for my layout.

More flowers and frogs are scattered around the layout. I also stamped a background from Season of Thanks across the cardstock to create a background for my title, which I stamped using Handwritten Print.

Here is the finished layout, complete with journalling. I used a PML card from the Regatta WYW and also fussy cut the tag from the card to create my journalling tag. Some Fundamentals Paper and Flaxen cardstock were all I needed to complete my layout.

I love how easily you can colour, ink and use techniques with stamps to match whatever layout, photos and colours you are working with.

This stamp offer is only available until 31st March from your CTMH consultant. I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop,  Denise's Blog, Scrap Stamp Share.
