Urban Blog Hop

Welcome to the Urban Australasian Blog Hop! I've you've arrived here from Simone Morton's Scrappy Matters, you're in the right spot!

I've been *LOVING* the Urban paper packet! Right away when I saw the corrugated panel designed paper, I thought "that looks like a shed somewhere outback!" and I got a lot of blokey ideas. My customers and classes are forever looking for more designs and ideas to use for men. Challenge accepted!

One product I've really been using this year in my studio is the Make It From Your Heart books. They're such a great way to get into the way CTMH teach scrapbooking and cardmaking! I've done just about every layout in the 2 books and now I'm really getting in to the card designs.

This card is from Make It From Your Heart volume 2 page 45 pattern 26. Nice and easy, simple strips, with a bit of stamping and embellishing! I decided to use some stamps I already have in my stash and mix them up with the new Urban papers. I like using my existing stamp stash with brand new papers. It breathes new life into some of my old favorites. :)

I used the following products to make this card. Shop the links below or ask your Consultant for more details. Urban paper packet, Colonial White Card Value Pack, Trimmer, Adhesive, Gold Foil Tape, Gold Sequin Assortment, Honey and Sapphire Exclusive Inks, Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors, Make It From Your Heart volume 2, Bone Folder, Versamat, 2x2" MyAcrylix Block, Spritz, Scrubber, mini gift stampset (nla), Framed August SoTM (nla).

You could dress it up even further with Urban Complements, Durables Triangle Studs, or any of these MyAcrylix stampsets: Celebrate!, Birthday Calligraphy, Crazy Good, Ink Blot, or Loads of Fun. Have fun creating this card!

Up next is Leah Cameron!
