Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Jen’s Creative Classroom, then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post.
Today, instead of my usual cards, I would like to share with you a mini book which features the April Stamp of the Month Balloon Talk available exclusively throughout April for NZ$29 or for just $5 when you spend $75.
The Balloon Talk stamp set is really great to put little accents on scrapbook layouts and I have used them throughout the mini book. I have teamed up the Balloon Ride Papers with the Balloon Talk stamp set for the mini album. I wasn’t sure about this paper range but I have changed my mind as the colours are so gorgeous. I thought the patterns would be appropriate for a travel album.
My Cricut machine has been working overtime but I am so pleased with the outcome as I have never done anything like this before. The Artbooking cartridge makes it so easy and all I had to do was to decide was what colour cardstock and papers I need to make my cuts. Here is a close up of one page that I have put some of the Balloon Talk images on: The “Been There”, “Done That” stamps were really appropriate for this album as well. As this album has been made to sell I have not added photos and I have used the sentiments on the tags of the pages as well as randomly throughout album. As I have said I have used the Balloon Ride paper pack with the titles and photo mats being in Colonial White. The titles have been sponged with Cashmere to help soften them and stand out from the background cardstock or paper.
I do apologise for the quality of the photos but I think my camera needs to be looked at again. I was thinking it was my eyesight but it could be the camera instead.
Balloon Talk is only available until 30th April from your CTMH consultant here. ) I’d love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Lauren’s Blog, CTMH Craftings. Happy Crafting Patricia
