The Some Kinda Wonderful collection is  from the Seasonal Expressions Jan-Apr 2017 Catalogue.  This pack has lots of bright colours in it but the black helps keep it from being overwhelming.  Most of the bright prints have a subtle one on the reverse of the paper.

Today I’ve used Some Kinda Wonderful on a layout featuring photos of street art in Tahiti’s capital, Papeete.  It was a drizzly overcast morning and we thought a museum was in order.  Turned out the museum didn’t open on a Sunday.  We decided to walk around the streets instead – something we love to do in cities we haven’t visited before.  As soon as you step beyond the main tourist strip you see a completely different scene.  We were delighted to discover many of the Papeete buildings featured truly amazing art work.

Some Kinda Wornderful Papeete

Trim around the circle print using  scissors to give this paper a new look.  Stamping on the circles with Handwritten Alphabet stamps (E1030) creates a focal point of your title.

This street art was painted as part of the Tahiti Street Art Festival.  If you are ever travelling to Tahiti, be sure to stop over in Papeete and walk behind the tourist precinct.

The Some Kinda Wonderful Workshop Your Way  (G1121) kit is only available until the end of April. Place your order with your Close To My Heart Consultant. If you don’t have a consultant, you can order online through my website .

I’d love you to leave a comment for me before you click on the underlined link and move on to Kara’s Blog , Creating with Kara Davies to see the gorgeous project she has designed for you.

Happy Scrapping,

Welcome to the February Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from Doris’ 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 Easter Bunny  (S1702) stamp set which is February’s Stamp of the Month.

Aren’t they the cutest little bunnies?  You can colour the bunnies or paper piece their clothes for a bit of fun.   My favourite sentiment on this set is “ There’s nobunny like you”.  How lovely would it be on a page about one of your family members or friends?

Today’s layout design is one of my Go To Basics that I use when I only have landscape photos.  Strips top and bottom vary from 1/2″ to 1″ and usually come from my off-cuts stash.  I didn’t have enough photos for 2 pages of either event and decided to combine them.  The Cut Apart journal boxes and PML cards from Some Kinda Wonderful (X7217B) create a division to help the reader identify the photos as separate experiences.

It is lots of fun to make your bunny’s outfits match your photos.  The edges of the journal box were inked by running the edge of the paper across the top of the Willow ink pad. The little stamped flower border comes in the set too.  Just repeat it across the 2 pages and colour as desired.

You will find a list of the products used on the layout at the end of this post.

Easter Bunny (S1702) is only available during February, 2017.  Full retail price is $27 but you can have this gorgeous set for just $7.50 when accompanied by a $75 order. Place your order with your Close To My Heart Consultant.
