Australasian In Full Bloom Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our In Full Bloom Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. 

If you have arrived here from Scrappy Chicks 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 a creation which features Close To My Heart’s April Featured collection, In Full Bloom.

I wanted to do a double page layout, and this free sketch from CTMH helped get my creativity flowing!

I used the Mink cardstock from the In Full Bloom Coordinating Cardstock as the base, accented with Lagoon, Black and Avocado from the cardstock pack.

On the left hand side of the page, I made a feature out of the beautiful floral paper from the In Full Bloom Paper Packet, also using the striped paper as a border accent. 

I then used my Watercolour Pencils to colour the thin cut flowers from the In Full Bloom Scrapbooking Stamp Set and Thin Cuts. The detail in these stamps is so intricate!

On the right hand side of the page, I added some more thin cut flowers and Black Dots, as well as a leaf embellishment from the Layered Flowers Thin Cuts. The black hearts are leftover from another project but I added them for a bit of contrast. 

Lastly, I stamped the title and added a butterfly from the In Full Bloom Scrapbooking Stamp Set and Thin Cuts, as the large sentiment fit the space perfectly.

I hope you have enjoyed this project, it was such fun to put together and I can't wait to add some photos! If you love this collection and do not have a consultant please contact me or place an order here.

I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Kimmi Adds Sparkle.
