Welcome to the latest Australasian Blog Hop – wherever you are on the journey, I hope you’re loving what you’re seeing.
Now I have a wee confession to make regarding this stamp set – when I first saw it, I immediately entered a complete creative block, that was absolutely my own doing. As a kiwi, I felt the sayings on this stamp set are quite American, so they weren’t hitting any of my sweet spots, and to be fair, I wasn’t overly keen on the ‘folksy’ girl. HOWEVER, I can happily say I have completely changed my tune, and have now fallen in love with this folksy girl!
Every month I recognise members within my CTMH team for their special achievements, and upon closer inspection, I realised that the stamp included the saying ‘you are awesome’. Yes, it’s attached to to ‘to the core’, but since I knew I wouldn’t have a lot of demand for the second part of the saying, I decided to simply cut the stamp in half, to save me masking it each time I wanted to use. YEP, you heard my right – I CUT my stamp in half. 🙂 Now I have two stamps – one says ‘you are awesome’ , and the other ‘to the core’. They have totally survived being cut in half, and if I do need to use them both together again, I still can, just stamping one after the other. You should try it – it can be liberating!!
The lovely cards I created are personalised for each team member by colouring in the recipients favourite colour.
Here’s a close up of on the girls – I really feel I should give her a name.
I’ve used the basic fundamentals as the background (if you love this paper as much as me, order it now, as it’s only available for another couple of months (or WSL). And of course, it’s my lovely Shin-han markers that have brought her to life.
