I am totally in love with these stamp sets. they are ideal for so many different projects. The three different stamps represent the three major types of scrapbooking, and they mix and match perfectly.  

For my first project I decided to make a page for my son called "10 things I love about you". I got these from the Artbooking cartridge page 81. I have wanted for ages to make a 10 things I love about you Page for my son. This was the perfect opportunity. 

Firstly I cut the 10 things and the bubble numbers 1-10 on the cricut with 12" X 12" Glacier Cardstock

I cut a few so I could make a page for my daughter next also. As shown below I took the cutout left behind and traced around it with a pencil onto 12" X 12" White Daisy CardstockI used this white daisy cutout to back the numbers so they would stand out. 

I created the title and used the heart and LOVE from the Hello, Life!—Pocket Scrapbooking
for the letters I used Hopscotch Alphabet which is my new favourite alphabet stamp set!

I placed all the bits onto the page but haven't posted a completed photo because I wanted to keep the page contents private. 

Next I had a play with the brand new Watercolor Paints and Paintbrush SetMy first attempt below was a bit dismal but it was fun to play and learn something new. I hadn't got in the special Watercolor Paper when I created this so I just used 12" X 12" White Daisy Cardstock and it seemed to worked just fine for what I needed it for.   

Next I did a colour gradient on an angle like a sunset and I was much happier with that one. Especially when I finished it off. 

To finish it off I added one of the Hello, Life!—Cardmaking Hello stamps, stamped with Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and matted it in 12" X 12" Black Cardstock.  The base was 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack. I LOVE how this card turned out. So simple, elegant and FUN!

My last idea was a welcome card I did for my 10 fold swap at our monthly team meeting. Consultants make 10 of 1 idea and share with others. This could be a welcome to my workshop, welcome to the neighbourhood, welcome to my team, etc etc, So simple that I just used the 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" White Cards & Envelopes, Value Packa strip of Black Shimmer Trima offcut of Nevermore Paper Packet
two stamps in Whisper Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and Black Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad.
