Zoe Blog Hop

Welcome to our Australasian Zoe Blog Hop. If you've come here from Vandra's Virtual Craftroom
then you are in the right place! If you've happened upon us by happy mistake then please join in by hopping from blog to blog by clicking the links at the end of each blog post until you arrive back here.

So Zoe is my paper theme for the month and I have made two of the most beautiful double scrapbook page layouts using the paper pack and complements. I will be sharing my directions for these pages in a free file to be posted after my sisters wedding which is at the end of this month.

My title uses the Zoe Workshop on the Go stamp set and a tissue technique to get the glow around the words. The stripey bar and the arrow are both from the complements pack.
I created some pretty detail boxes by cutting the complement stickers and pairing with B&T. While we are at it though... check out that ZIP STRIP! How cool! I intend on using the triangle stamp in the Workshop on the Go stamp set to stamp a small triangle above the strip to show the month the photos were taken and one below to show the date.
How neat do these tabs look? All created with the Zoe Workshop on the Go stamp set.
How about a few more of those complements stickers for detail? I purposely stuck the stickers on the white dots of the paper. 
The Zoe complement pack has velum pieces which I have used across the top of my page.

It's an awesome zip strip again! Now while 'one happy day' is a good thing I felt like I need not just one - so I cut the letters out on the cricut to add to the title.

I added velum days of the week to each of my photo mats.I stamped circles with journaling lines to give me a few spots to record my thoughts.

Then finally I used up some of my leftover complements on these cards:

Thanks for joining me to see my new Zoe layouts, I hoped you liked them.
Please leave me a comment before continuing on to Crafty Connections Australia.

If you want to create any of the wonderful creations seen on the hop you can find the Zoe papers and additional supplies on your consultant's shopping page.

Framed S1508 CTMH Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Stamp of the month Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Georgia's Blog - Georgia Creates,  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.

Well it is August and we are in uncharted territory... This month's stamp of the month isn't pictured in our current idea book... and the paper I have used isn't either.... stay tuned for a blog hop in a couple of weeks time showcasing this new paper pack which will be available for the next year as the first paper pack in the new idea book being released at the start of September. But first lets check out this set:

Those red lines around the frames show that cricut files are available for those shapes and these shapes are found on the BRAND NEW artistry cartridge which is available from today!

Ok ok ok... lets calm down and look at what I've made:
I think it's a cute way of making a background on a card and also a neat way to use the frames. The number 6 I have used is a tiny sneak peak of a new alphabet set which will be heading our way next month.

Here are my ingredients for this card:
White Daisy Card Base
Zoe paper pack
S1508 Framed August Stamp of the Month
Sweet Leaf Ink
Sorbet Ink
Glacier Ink

 Framed is only available until the end of August from your CTMH consultant for $27 or only $5 with a qualifying purchase of $75 or more.  I'd love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, Designs by Marguerite.
