No thorns on Hawthorn…

If you are visiting my page from Doris Edwards through the Australasian Blog Hop, WELCOME!!!

I was so excited to see the new Hawthorn paper collection – I knew it was going to be perfect for males (but it doesn’t end there)…

I have done a few pages, but I have gone quite overboard (is there such a thing) with cards…

How great are the following cards (if I do say so myself)… I have used a couple off stamps sets that everyone needs to add to their stash for quick & simple male cards.

The large blue Ute & greeting on the following card comes from A True Classic Stamp Set

The next 4 cards use the Hawthorn Cardmaking Stamp set that can also be purchased with Thin Cuts.

img_0359img_0357img_0358img_0364

And if those cards aren’t enough for you, here is a couple with some Cricut flowers to give them the feminine touch… These 2 cards have sentiments from last months Stamp of the Month, Random Act of Cardness (I still have a couple of sets in stock if you are after one). The circle has been cut out using the Shaker Window Thin Cuts set.

This last bunch see’s the Hawthorn paper suite paired with the Sweetest Birthday Wishes stamp set (D1890), some of the new Sangria Ribbon (Z3569), and some of the sparkly Stickles.

Whoops, I better share this cute little gift card holder too… Using 2 of our new cardstock colours, Sangria & Evergreen, and the Season stamp set from September… watch out for more of these coming with the new Christmas collections…

I hope I have inspired your cardmaking, now continue the inspiration at by visiting Maz Wood

Thank you for getting this far…  If you want to go shopping for any of the great Close To My Heart products please visit my website, www.creatingwithkylie.ctmh.com.au

Into The Wild for Operation Smile

I am currently in Provo, Utah for the 2019 Close To My Heart annual convention… Preceeding the convention the Aussie consultants were invited to join an American team for their welcoming function… I was also invited to create a piece of artwork to contribute to a raffle to raise funds for Operation Smile…

Here is my contribution which I was really pleased with…

With many other donations we raised enough money to pay for 16 smiles… remember that anytime you place an order you can round up to make a contribution…

My mini album was created using this months paper collection Into The Wild and coordinating complements… I actually loved it so much I made a second one to keep!!! The second album along with a few other pieces were on display yesterday at a Creativity Showcase…

I will have this on display at the July workshop at Morphett Vale…

These products are available for purchase until 31st August (I think it is my favourite pack)…

Happy papercrafting,

This exclusive ‘Bear Hugs’ Stamp of the Month stamp set is only available during July. It can be yours for just $8.25 with a qualifying order of $82.50 or for $29.50 if ordered separately from your CTMH consultant.
