Life’s a Hoot

Hello and welcome aboard our Life’s a Hoot Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. 

If you have arrived here from the Scrapbooking Photographer, 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. 

Today I would like to share with you a couple of creations which feature Close To My Heart’s March Featured collection – Life’s a Hoot. Firstly a scrapbook layout. I love “scraplifting” layouts that I see and using them to create my own version of something I saw somewhere. This time I’ve scraplifted a layout from the CTMH current Seasonal Expressions Catalogue.

This was using the Life’s a Hoot paper pack with stickers, Grape Exclusive Inks for inking the edges of some of the papers, a mix of different coloured CTMH enamel Dots, I stamped with the S2303E Precious Moments stamp of the month in Intense Black Ink, I coloured the stamped animals using a variety od Shimmer Brushes. For the heading is used the Woodgrain Alphabet Chipboard letters, that I inked up with some purple Distress Oxides ink.

The second project is a card that I used the beautiful owl from the set Z4681 LIfe’s a Hoot Scrapbooking stamp and thin cut set. I used just the tail stamped 7 times and fussy cut to create the petals of the flower and his tummy to be the centre of the flower. I coloured with some tri-blend markers. The final touch was a splattering of the White and Gilt gloss sprays.

    I would never have thought the Tail of an owl & it’s tummy would make a flower. Very clever idea. The Precious Moments Aussie Critters make adorable embellishments for your Scrapbook Layout & fit in perfectly with the papers.

    Lovely Danielle. What a cool idea with the owl stamp! I would never have thought of using his tail feathers from petals…..but it works awesomely!
