CTMH Australasian - Sangria Blog Hop

Hi and welcome aboard our Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop featuring our stunning paper collection - SangriaIf you have arrived here from Scrappy Matters and the delightful Simone Morton 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. This new paper collection from Close To My Heart is just so warm and inviting that you'll be dying to get your hands on it, especially after seeing the wonderful creations we've got in store for you as you make your way around the blog hop.

Take a look at those stunning colours! One of the things I love about Close To My Heart is the way they make everything match. It's not just a new paper pack - there's paper, coordinating compliments and of course bling! It then steps up another level with the Workshop On The Go scrapbooking kit which provides you with everything you need to create at least 2 stunning double page layouts - including instructions!

It's been a busy time for me lately with it being school holidays so I haven't been able to play as 
much as I would've liked to, however I want to share with you how versatile this paper collection 
is as I was able to quickly whip up a few cards using just a couple of sheets but each card 
being of a completely different nature!

Firstly I made a few 3x3 cards that are simply just for! Aren't those little guys just the cutest! They make up a bunch of cute little creatures as part of our newest Operation Smile stamp set - Animal Greetings. By purchasing this stamp set you are helping a child get their smile back! These little guys were all coloured in using our Shinhan Marker range and they were so much fun to do! Don't forget you can click on any image to make it larger if you need a closer look.
The next card I created was one that could be used to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary or any other special day for someone. Something that I really wanted to try with this paper collection was some gold heat embossing. I really felt it would set the colours off and our gold embossing powder is just perfect for it don't you think? It just says elegant to me. The gorgeous swirl I've featured here is from 
the Love Life stamp set and the butterflies and sentiment are from Your Own Kind of Wonderful 
- two of my personal favourites. 

So we've had some "just because" cards and a "Special Day" card. This collection is that 
versatile it also said "Christmas" to me! Does it say Christmas to you? Aren't those little ornaments cute! Again I decided on some more gold heat embossing to really make the colours pop and add that something special to the card. 

And lastly - for those who like to do digital scrapbooking - you haven't been forgotten!
Close To My Heart has released a Sangria Studio J Collection for a limited time! 
Take the link and get in quick to ensure you don't miss out on this wonderful collection.

I hope you've had fun reading about one of our newest paper collections and seeing what I've created, I know I've certainly had fun playing with this collection and I can't wait to see what it inspires you to do!
