Hello and welcome aboard the Little Dreamer Australasian blog hop. If you have arrived here from Vandra’s Virtual CTMH Craft Room then you are in the right spot. If you have stumbled upon us or sent from my email list then please continue along the hop by clicking on the link at the bottom of this post.

          Today’s post features the absolutely stunning Little Dreamer Paper Pack. Screen Shot 2017-05-19 at 11.05.50 pm

This Paper pack has some gorgeous designs and I am sure the amazing ladies in this blog hop will have some amazing ideas showcasing the versatility of them.

My design I am showing you today is a Peek-a-Boo card. These are cute and fun cards and can be used for so many occasions. The Peek-a-Boo cards have a window in the front of the card that when opens allows for another image to appear there. Here is what my card looks like closed and when opened. Note that the image visible in the window when closed in actually attached to the background card stock.

I am using this card for a young girls second birthday who loved hidden images in books so I thought this style card would be perfect for her. I wanted to keep the card child like so I kept it simple and used the glitter complements. What young girl does not like glitter?

As you can see when opened the image that appears is a unicorn jumping over a rainbow. I fussy cut the paper and drew the rainbow on card stock and added bling from the complements pack.

The front of the card is decorated with Whimsy ribbon and cut outs using the cricut machine. The holes in the card were done using the Circle Thin Cuts, however you can do this with any shape thin cut.

I have added colour  to my Happy Birthday cut out with ink and sponge. If you wanted a brighter effect you could also use the markers or watercolour paints.

This card is really fun to make so give it a try.

Thank you again for coming along the ride of the Australasian blog hop. Please before continuing along our hop leave a comment. I know the other ladies will have some amazing ideas especially the talented Lauren Moore. Enjoy the ride and don’t forget to pin all the ideas for your inspiration.

Halloween Ideas

Halloween is on Monday and after all the fun and dress up is over you will have some fantastic memories you will want to preserve. You then have to decide how you will present them. Many People still do the traditional lay out. There are so many fun and interesting things you can do with traditional layouts to make them unique. The example below shows you that you can have your journaling box on an angle to create some interest on the page. 16-he-jeepers-creepers-monsters-layoutWashi Tape can be used in so many ways. Here it is used to to look like you have just stuck the pictures down. This is a great idea to use for children, school, friendship or crafting/work photos. It looks similar to having photos stuck over your mirror/wall.

The new way to scrapbook is one that I love. It is a mix of traditional and pocket scrapbooking. You still have your traditional scrapbook pages but you can use the new pocket pages to add additional photos similar to a photo album.

By doing this it makes scrapbooking quicker and easier and allows you to use many photos in less room. I will talk about pocket scrapbooking in a future post.

Once all your Halloween scrapbooking is done you don’t have to pack away the little monsters. Remember your own little monsters will love to make, give or receive some fun monster cards. 16-he-jeepers-creepers-wyw-card-set
