November Blog Hop

Welcome to the Art with Heart Blog hop for November. This month we are focusing on Memory Keeping. (Scrapbooking/Project Life) We all take photos right? Well, capturing every day moments is so special we need to document these to cherish. We are all passionate about memory keeping and want to continue to inspire each other, and you, as we move forward into 2016.

Today I have tried my hand for the very first time at Project Life! As a traditional scrapbooker, I did find it a little bit harder to take only a little time to do it and not have so much on it, but I was happy with the result. Such a great way to capture special events life a holiday or special day.

So off to the hop....You may have come here from the Talented Kelly Kent's little home on the web. Don't worry if you didn't, if you follow the links at the end of every page you will eventually do a full circle seeing everyone pieces of art and end up back at the beginning again. Don't forget to leave a short message to let people know you popped past. All the products in this blog hop are available in our new mini seasonal catalogue and if your wish list is over $90 you can also choose a free product from our sale-a-bration items. If its more like mine and you spend more, you can choose more free products as there are no limits, so go look at all these ladies wonderful work and start making your wishlist...I know I will be :-)

Today I am using a new stamp set called So Very Grateful. I have made two cards. My second card I would like to acknowledge stampladykatie as I found her lovely card on google and just had to show you all.



This card I have gone back to my young girl days and coloured (oh how I loved doing that) Then I embossed the card front with the picture already on it to give it a different effect.


I loved this card I saw on google and had to CASE it. The background is white heat embossed as is the panel. A little ribbon and some colour and I was done. 
I love this set as it is so versatile for birthdays, thank you, sympathy or anything really. I will be using this a bit I'm sure.
Anyway off you hop to my lovely friend Di Dunks page, enjoy this blog hop and I hope to hear from you soon.

Where are you in blog land

Oh my. I havent written on here in a while, nearly since I started up my facebook page. I have put things on there and well, forgot here, since I have been making posting there and playing with new things. So much stuff, not near enough time. I apologize if you have been looking here and nothing is going on, I have to remember to update everything. We think it is easy to have all this social media to advertise things, but sometime too much is not a good thing. I will from now on make sure I update here as I update the facebook group.

We did have a wonderful team day where we raised money for Ronald McDonald house and one of the things we were taught to make was a gorgeous box card.  Since my daughters 15th birthday was coming up I thought I would make my first one for her. I was very happy with how it turned out.
I used a stamp set called Sketched Birthday, a bit of glimmer paper, our gorgeous Gingham Garden Dsp and some Melon Mambo as the base colour. It took no time at all to make but the look on my daughters face was priceless when she realized this flat card stood up in its own special way.

I will post more often in here now my head is not spinning with all the media haha :-) You can find Ratherbstamping also on facebook, incase I get lost again :-( Crafting is so much more easier than blogging so I am off to play again.
