Crazy Crafter's September Blog Hop with Special Guest - Sarah Berry



Hi and welcome to another fabulous Blog Hop with the famous Crazy Crafter's. This time we are hopping with Sarah Berry and Casing one of her wonderful creations. If you have come from Stephanie Fischer, then make sure you continue to hop along and check out all the talented people who have joined in with this blog hop.

So here is a picture of Sarah Berry,

she is an awesome demonstrator from the UK and her blog is full of inspiration - click here to check it out. Sarah also runs a weekly sketch  challenge called Strawberry Sketches, if you like entering weekly blog challenges then head over to website for more information on how you can play along too.

Choosing a Card

It was so difficult trying to choose a card to CASE (copy and selectively edit) from Sarah's amazing collection of creations as I liked so many! In the end I came up with this card.




I chose this card as I wanted to create something that was stamped in a repeated pattern too. I liked this simple but effective layout and thought it was the perfect challenge.

My CASE of Sarah's Card:



In a recent card I made for Strawberry Sketches I used the triple layer stamping technique. If you want the exact measurements that I used for each layer - pop over to my previous post and all the details are there for you :)



This stamp set is a new one - only available when the holiday catalogue goes live in September. It's called Day at the Beach and it's perfect for our hot Aussie Summer Christmas holidays. If you can't wait to have this stamp set, then why not join my team by following the link on my blog home page and ordering it early!!!



I really like how this all came together - and thought the new burlap ribbon paired so well with this beachy themed card. The bottom layer is Dapper Denim, then Bermuda Bay, then Tempting Turquoise. I stamped the dolphin in Dapper Denim too. The starfish and sentiment are from a different stamp set called: Picture Perfect.



Product List







Happy Hopping everyone - enjoy the rest of this blog hop!

  8. Louise I really like how you have used three depth of blue cardstock, This says to me, the depths of the Ocean where Dolphins swim. Your Triple Stamping is brilliant, Stamping the Dolphins in the way is just how they look playing through the water. I must admit as I said on Kylie's Blog too, I am not a huge fan at all of the "Aussie Summer" Stamp Set but seeing her and now your design, it makes me realize that they are no rules in Stamping, we can use them for whatever our hearts and minds inspire us to do. I think the Starfish with the strip of Burlap makes the card complete. :)

    1. Thanks Christine. To be honest the stamp set didn't originally appeal to me either. But I desperately wanted a dolphin stamp and now I've used this set a few times and it looks so different when it's stamped with different colours and not necessarily used for a Xmas holiday theme! It's quite a cute versatile set that will come in handy for scrapbooking our family beach visits too! Glad you liked my card. I love the burlap ribbon too. Such a great beachy addition to the card!

    1. Thanks Jessie. I should have photographed the card on the beach too. I'm only two minutes from the beach and it would have created the perfect back drop!😀😀
