Scrapbooking & Papercraft

Stitched Together – Australasian Blog Hop

Stitched Together CTMH

Hi and welcome to our Stitched Together Australasian blog hop.

If you arrived here from Scrapping and more with Doreen you’re in the right spot. If you just happened upon me, even better, because you’re now part way through a great little blog hop of inspiration, using the Stitched Together suite of products from CTMH.

I’m not a quilter, but I was immediately drawn to this range, through the bright inspiring colours. It felt like it was just what was needed to cheer me up in these covid times.

Stitched Together Paper & Sticker sheet

This is what I’ve used for my project, with the super cute buttons thrown in for good measure! (How cute are these??!!)

Wood Buttons

This layout was very quick and easy to create – and isn’t that really the best type?

Stitched Together Friends scrapbook layout

It is also seems like a really nice time to be celebrating our friends. Those people you’ve missed the most while in isolation.

Why not gather your favourite photos of your friends, from any time in the past, and put together this page, celebrating YOU.

If you’d like the instructions to create this layout, simply message me through my Crop Craft Create FB page (make sure you like it first!!).

Now of course, I couldn’t stop there.

I had lots of paper left over in the pack, so I created another double page spread, adding in some of the Stitched Together PML cards. (‘cos they’re just so beautiful).

These are the PML (pocket cards). They are great to use in pocket scrapbooking, cardmaking, and of course, ‘normal’ scrapbooking.  They are a great addition to extend your paper pack.

Another Stitched Together project

In amongst the Stitched Together range, is a simply beautiful Quilt Embossing Folder. This is so simply elegant just embossed on white daisy cardstock, but, I wanted to amp it up a little. Plus, I love to teach the ladies at my Card Creations classes a new technique, so it was the perfect time for this ….

I must be reaching a new stage in life, as around me, friends kids’ are getting pregnant. Eek, my friends are becoming grandma’s!! How can that be?!!

To help celebrate this news, this card is just perfect.

Baby bump card made using Quilt embossing folder

To create this card, I first started with the background. Using the Quilt Embossing Folder, I ‘swiped’ my ink pad over the inside of the folder using Glacier Ink, then embossed it onto white daisy cardstock. This gives a different impression depending on which side you ink. You’ll see the great effect it gave me here, essentially a glacier background, with the raised image still white. Cool huh?!!

The image on the card was created using the Baby Bump (B1706) stamp set. I paper pieced her dress using a paper from the current Mix In paper pack. The rest of her was simply stamped using Intense Black ink, and then coloured using the wonderful Tri-Blend markers. (Here I used Fair Skin & Earth Brown, Dull Green and Coral.) The stitched square complements the quilting theme perfectly.

So that’s all the good news.  The bad news is, the Stitched Together suite of products is only available this month, so you’d better get your skates on and get your order in!

But before you head off to do that, why not give me a ‘like’ or leave a comment below.  Then jump on over for more inspiration with Doris at Creative Inspirations.

Happy creating,

    Love the creations – that Quilt Embossing Folder makes for a pretty background for that Sweet Mama card.
