Lindsay Mason Cat in Hat ATC swap (330-332)

I decided very last minute to join in with Lindsay Mason’s ATC swap in August where the theme was Cats In Hats. Of course I had to go straight to the original cat in the hat. 

Here are my three ATCs…

As you will see they are all similar but none are the same. I chose some stripey paper from the stash and tore it to create a layer on each of the ATC bases. 

I then added some gesso and added some subtle stamping with a Kaisercraft stamp. 

Then I added a strip of bookprint that I coloured with some distress oxide lightly. 

Then for all three I chose a different scrap from the bits and bobs box and added them. I added doodles and then added the printed Cat in the Hat images using pinflair glue gel to add dimension. 

I then handwrote the quote and added that too. 

Love how all three came out and Happy I made the last minute decision to join in this swap. 

Happy crafting!

Scrapbooking with Helen

Today I had a day of crafting with my lovely friend Helen who had some lovely scrapbook pages to inspire us. 

Here are the three I made (there is one in progress awaiting photos) … 

All of them were using the Color Theory suite of papers, cards and Colourful seasons stamp set for the stamping elements. 

I love how these all turned out. Lovely colourful pages full of interest. 

Thanks so much Helen. 

Happy crafting!
