Welcome to the Australasian Last Chance SE1 Blog Hop. This is a circular hop. If you arrived from Wendy’s Blog you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it. Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from. Each blog will showcase a project featuring products from the Seasonal Expressions 1 Catalogue from Close To My Heart. All the papers and stamps in this catalogue will retire on April 30 and may sell out before that date. If you see something you like along the hop, place your order ASAP to avoid disappointment.
The Beach Days Stamp Set is a firm favourite for me. We spend a lot of time on the coast of Western Australia and these whimsical critters and accents are perfect for my pages.
All the shapes outlined in red can be cut from the Artistry Cricut Cartridge (Z3190). This made it a breeze to add lots of individual shapes to the first layout. It was fun to position the crabs and octopus playing with beach balls. The retiring Regatta Papers (X7206B) were perfect for these photos.
The second layout uses the title frame from the stamp set along with a surfboard cut from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge (Z3169) and floral accents from the retiring Regatta Complements (X7206C). Whimsy Fundamentals helped the photos of this amazing sculpture ‘pop’ on the page. Fundamentals are not retiring but you need them in your stash because they are soooo versatile ♥
