Stamping from the Heart - SBTD Blog Hop December 2017

Welcome to our monthly SBTD Blog Hop - did you love Lindsay's Hug-in-a-mug as much as I did? If you have hopped on over from Lindsay's Blog in Colorado - well welcome to the sunny - stinkin' hot Australian summer time here!

For this hop we are Stamping from the heart and this could cover so much - every time I make a card, send a card or wrap a gift part of my heart is there? March sees my In-Laws Celebrate their 50 year wedding anniversary so I am already planning and creating towards that - there's party favours, decorations, a card to give them, gift wrapping and the cake! 

So today I'm sharing the cake toppers I have made - being March as you can imagine the cake is not made yet but we are planning already. My In-Laws are very traditional and have asked for a quilted cake with roses on it - might have to see about that one as quilting a cake is a bit out of my league. Either way this topper will look smick!

I have also made 5 table toppers for the guests tables - the easiest way though was to show you them in a pot with some greenery.

50 years together married that's a big achievement and something they are mighty proud of - this is a gift from my heart to theirs.


These measure approximately 10.5cm across or just over 4" - I cut 2 strips of DSP 12x2" then scored them at every 1/2 inch using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool  (on one side I scored all the 1/2 inch lines and then turned it over to score the inch marks from the other side to make valleys any peaks when folding). To stick it all together the glue gun was my friend -it is very fast to set and that's what I needed!

There will be more goodies to come as the big event gets closer but for now thank you for visiting me and lets go back across the globe you go to visit Tashana and see where the hearts have taken her.
