Art With Heart Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue Blog Hop


Welcome to the Art With Heart Team Blog Hop! Who are the Art with Heart team? Led by Claire Daly there are over 80 demonstrators across Australia ... if you want to be come part of this great team just email me for more details. We have a great team forum, Business Building Club and heaps of support from like minded demonstrators.

This will be a monthly event happening on the last day of every month. You may have just come from Ros Davidson's blog, but if you are starting here, don’t worry … you can make the complete journey just by following the links at the end of each post. There are 14 stops along the way and we hope you will visit each one to see the wonderful creations we have to show you! If you leave a comment on each and every blog and then email Nikki at, your name will be put into the hat to win some beautiful blog candy. There is a deadline of 72 hours to leave your comments and only non SU demos are eligible to win the candy - although we'd love all visitors to leave some comments please.

For our third tour we decided upon an Autumn- Winter Mini Catalogue theme. You'll be able to see some great ideas from the new mini catalogue available from tomorrow. At the end of each post there will be a link to take you to the next stop on the tour. It would be fantastic if you could leave a comment on each blog! So grab a cuppa, and set off on what we are hoping will be an inspirational journey!

My favourite stamp set from the new catalogue is Fox and Friends. It's a great animal set perfect for children's cards and projects. I've made a gift tag set and matching purse.

I've made the set using the NEW In Colour Melon Mambo. It's a lovely hot pink colour that works really well with neutrals. You could just as easily make a matching set for a boy by swapping the Melon Mambo for Pacific Point.

I've kept each tag the same except for the stamped image. They also coordinate with the box and would make a lovely gift for someone special.

Cardstock: Melon Mambo (new), Kraft, Very Vanilla
Stamp Set: Fox and Friends (new)
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: Melon Mambo 1/2" Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon (new), Chocolate Chip 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Scallop Circle Punch, Paper Crimper, Dimensionals, Paper Snips, Circle Cutter, Sticky Strip

Well, that’s all from me. Now you’re off to enjoy the beautiful creations of Kathryn Lowe.
