CTMH Hopscotch Layouts with a Touch of Artfully Sent.

Welcome back.

Today I have another couple of layouts using the Hopscotch papers that are due to be retired at the end of the month.  I am going to miss this papers as the colours are gorgeous and the papers are really fun.

Last Easter my daughter had a craft making session with her friends, where they decorated up some Easter eggs and made them look like dinosaurs.  I took some photos, as you do, and when CTMH had a special a while back on Studio J I got these photos printed in different sizes.  The colours in the photos matched perfectly with the Hopscotch papers – particularly the Sorbet and Flaxen colours.

I have used the Hopscotch complements and assortments to finish of the embellishments as well as using the negative of the Sweet cut from Artbooking along with You’re the Bomb stamp set which is also retiring at the end of this month.

CTMH Hopscotch LayoutThe Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge is so versatile and here I have used the sleeve function to cut out the envelope to hold my journalling card for my daughter to complete when she can.  I have used the journalling card from the Artbooking Cartridge stamp set Take Note.  This stamp set is only available as part of the Artbooking Cricut cartridge and I use this a lot for my journalling.  Here is a close up of the sleeve and I have used strips of the Hopscotch papers to create the patterns.

Here is another layout using small strips of paper to embellish the layouts.  I have taken my inspiration from the Magic book but added my own twist.  I have also used Artfully Sent for the letters FUN and Artbooking cartridge for the embellishment and the Artiste cartridge for the Easter title.

Pretty Please Pat Me!

Pretty Please Pat Me!, a photo by Patricia Manhire on Flickr.

The weather has not been great lately and I have not had a chance to go out with the camera. So my cat Sox has been a good subject for me. Here is another photo of him looking like he wants a pat. I like the light on him and it gives him a much softer face as well. He is a very cute and very demanding cat and at times very photogenic!
I am still making cards and will upload some more shortly.
I hope everyone has a great week and I will catch up with you shortly.

My photo of the day. I have started using the manual features of my phone and my lovely cat, Sox, has been the unwilling subject of my practice. He keeps moving and it is hard to catch him still.
Have a good day everyone.

Even when my cat is asleep he cannot escape from my lens. Here he is sleeping on the sofa and I managed to capture his shadow like Peter Pan.. He is so cute when asleep, but can be a nuisance when he is walking all over my desk with dirty paws (when it does actually rain!!)
Have a good day
