Craft On CTMH Australasian Blog Hop

If you arrived here from Megan, welcome! Read on and hop around for heaps of inspiration.

This hop centers on our very last paper collection from Seasonal Expressions 2: Craft On. This is my favorite collection from 2019 so far!

When I saw this packet, I was immediately drawn to it. I'm not a blue fan (QUEENSLANDER!) and yet this packet was calling my name. I decided to use this stitched striped paper to do a monogram for my home.

I used the immense pile of cardstock scraps from my Scrap Box to cut all of these flowers and leaves. I picked whatever colors looked good on the day, not necessarily the coordinating cardstock colors as listed on the paper's zipstrip! 😉

After lots and lots and lots of liquid glass and foam dots, I had my completed piece of home decor. It's housed in a $10 white shadow box frame from Kmart. The picture is of my husband and I at the very end of our first date. We knew at the end of this date that we weren't looking any more, we'd found each other at last. (All together now... 💖Awwwww!💖)

I had plenty of leftover flowers to use, so I created more things!

These cards are the same design with a couple of simple changes. Gotta love our versatile papers and stamps!

I had still more paper leftover so I created some layouts, including this one.

After a search on pinterest for new card ideas, I saw a different one and replicated it with scraps of Craft On.

  1. A beautiful shadow box, and your cards are lovely.

  2. Lovely projects Kara. How special you knew the two of you were a unit after just one date

    1. It was a long wait from first hello til the first date. 8 months in fact!

  3. I love the story of your first date Kara - I hope that's written on an album page somewhere.
