Joy of Sets Blog Hop August 2018

Hello and welcome to Amethystarcrafting. My Name is Jane Allmark and I'm a UK Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator.

Thank you for joining the Joy of Sets Blog Hop for August.  This hop is all about the new annual catalogue and all the lovely products inside.  Please look at hopping forward and backwards to see all the great projects that have been posted by following the arrows below.

My project uses the lovely Wonderful Moments stamp set as you can see there are some beautiful line drawings which can be coloured in however you choose.

The image I chose was the pregnant lady and switched her up to make her just a lady without the bump.  This allowed me to use her lots of different projects.  This card would make a great anniversary or birthday card for someone special.

To see how I changed the image have a look at my video below
This was a summertime girl and I added a crop top and long skirt.  Colour the image in whatever medium you wish
