Creative Inkling Blog Hop- Happy Mother’s Day!

creative hop

Hi there Stamping Friends! Thanks for hopping this way on our Creative Inkling Blog Hop for April! Isn’t this a talented group of demonstrators? I am learning so many wonderful techniques from all of them.

This month the theme is Mother’s Day. This month in my club some ladies commented that it is a little hard for them as their mothers are deceased… I do plan alternate greetings for my customers so they can individualize their cards for what ever purpose they’d like. But this got me thinking about doing something other than Mother’s Day cards for this month’s hop. I did feature lovely floral cards and Mother’s Day cards in my clubs this month, here are some samples (in case you didn’t visit me this month): https://lynnzcrafters.com/2015/04/13/april-club-projects/

So I decided that what I wanted to show you is a Mother’s Tribute, using our lovely new Hello Life Project Kit (found on page 6 of the Spring Catalog). Here is the photo of what the collage frame looks like if you complete it exactly as is:

Well the great thing about this kit, is it is super easy to customize and you can use the frame for many different purposes. you could change it out seasonally, or give it as a gift. Not sure if you can tell, but I used the clothespins, the frame and the shaker frame for my tribute display, so I have almost all the supplies I can reuse and make another display for another time.

For this month’s blog hop, I decided to use it as for a Mother’s Day Tribute to my dear Mother. I’m blessed to have a wonderful Mother and we live about 4 miles from each other, love that we can see each other often and we attend church together, it is a great time for the two of us.

I have mounted this on my living room wall, it’s the first thing people will see when they enter my home. I used one of those awesome command hooks, I got the one for up to 5 pounds of weight.

Also- a reminder, It’s a great time to grab those labels framelits (they are a weekly deal for 25% off until 4/20 at midnight)…
