CTMH Thin Cuts Australasian Blog Hop


I am so in love with Thin Cuts dies and their matching stamp sets.  No more fussy cutting with these stamps!  Because the dies save time I find I am using the stamps more.

This layout was inspired by pp104-105 of the Cherish How To Book.  It’s a layout we were challenged to use in a team virtual crop this month.  The small squares were the perfect place to showcase the Carnival Fun stamps and Thin Cuts.

Thin Cuts are an awesome addition to your tools collection.    You can stamp first and then use the dies in your Cuttlebug or Big Shot machine to cut around them or cut the shapes first and then stamp.  I prefer the second method.  The stamps are super easy to match up with the cuts.

Welcome to the June Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from Lauren’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 the Long Way Home (S1606) stamp set which is June’s Stamp of the Month.


Isn’t this such a fun set of images?  We all have photos of road trips or past cars we’ve owned. That combi bought back childhood memories of Dad’s lime green one in the 70’s.  I need to find a photo of it!  For now,  I chose to make a layout celebrating my husband’s new car purchased at the beginning of the year.

This layout comes from the Magic How To Book (page 54). The papers are a mixture of Calypso (X7210B) and Magical (X7209B).  The combi van, bike and car come from our Stamp of the month, The Long Way Home (S1606) and the cement mixer comes from Loads of Fun (C1623).
