Boutique CTMH Australasian Blog Hop

This hop explores the beautiful Boutique collection, the first from our new Holiday Expressions idea book!

https://creatingwithkaradavies.blogspot.com/

If you arrived here from Scrappykea, welcome. Join in and hop around!

https://creatingwithkaradavies.blogspot.com/

Featuring the stunning yet soft and dreamy colors of Sugarplum, Peach, Ballerina, Saffron, Peacock, Glacier, Charcoal, Linen, and White Daisy, Boutique is flat out the prettiest pack I've seen in a while. This mix of patterns is sublime and to me has a very bohemian/chic feel to it.

I decided to focus on the confetti and charcoal floral papers for my projects this month.

A few hints of other colors from the collection and some glitter paper kept it all very simple, serene, sweet and refreshing.

The first challenge for our consultant page challenge group this month was a new one. "...create a layout about you using single words or short phrases that describe you. They can only be positive things though. If you are doing a double layout think about other photos you can add... Are you a mum, gardener, funny, wonderful cook just for example? You are all creative, talented scrapbookers. So show us some other things about you. We all need to be reminded of the wonderful things about ourselves and we are quite often our biggest critics, so for this reason I will be creating this layout along with you right now. Remember there is no sketch for this layout." I went for the word "volunteer".

To make these projects, I used my basic toolkit plus these materials. Click through to purchase or contact your consultant. Basic Toolkit: (Versamat, Trimmer, Ruler, Adhesive Runner), Boutique Paper Packet Coordinating Cardstocks and Complements, Sugarplum Cardstock and Glitter Paper, Mint and White Daisy Cardstocks, Thin Cuts—Block Alphabet, White Cards & Envelopes Value PackMake It from Your Heart™ Volume 1, Make It from Your Heart™ Volume 3, Thin 3-D Foam Dots, Bonding Memories Glue Pen, My Legacy™ D-ring Album and Memory Protectors™ Top Load Value Pack.

AHSC 281


I've done double duty again this week. 😎 Some sketches are simply begging for more than one attempt! This is one of those sketches.


First up is a pretty springy version done digitally. I like to design digitally first, then have a go with papers and stamps. Anyone else?

Digital kit used found ages ago via pinterest.

Next up is a pretty Christmas version with a little bit of everything from embossing, die cutting, stamping, and ink distressing.


After I used my Cuttlebug to emboss the white daisy mat, I switched out a plate and used the basic ovals thin cuts. I used my round sponge and a bit of Candy Apple ink to distress the edges. I wanted to add another oval behind it but I'd already used the largest one in the set. Dabbing ink around the edge it is! Work with what you've got peeps. The holly is stamped and fussy cut, then attached with some thin foam dots. A pair of silver glitter gems finished it off nicely.

Tip: I cut the sponge into wedges then store them in the bag the sponge came in. I don't use the sponge wedges very much and keeping them in the bag after each use helps keep the mess down.

To make this Christmas card I used my basic toolkit plus these materials. Click through to purchase! Basic Toolkit: (Versamat, Trimmer, Adhesive Runner, Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors, and Stamping Starter Kit), 'Tis the Season Paper Packet and Coordinating Cardstock, White Cards & Envelopes Value Pack, Basic Ovals Thin Cuts, Dots Embossing Folder, Silver Glitter Gems, Candy Apple Clover and Black Exclusive Inks, Thin 3-D Foam Dots, Bone Folder, Round Sponge, Christmas Script Happy Holidays Cardmaking and Angel Policy stampsets.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment below and pin my projects before you pop over to the sketch.
