This or That? I wonder what you will pick in our challenge today? It’s the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop (AWOW for short) and this month we are sharing not just 1 but 2 projects with our This or That April challenge.

It could be different orientations of the same layout, perhaps different colours, alternate Designer Series Papers, different colouring mediums – the possibilities are endless. I’ve chosen the new Country Flowers bundle from the upcoming 2024-2025 Annual Catalogue for my This or That projects and went with varied interior decor styles.

We need YOU to participate today by commenting and letting us know whether you pick This or That!


For my first project I went with a shabby chic style with soft pinks and white. I used Watercolour Pencils to colour in my image.

Of course there had to be a doily in there for a beautiful country look. On top of that I added some Cardstock which I had treated with Embossing Paste I coloured with Pretty in Pink. First I applied a layer with a Palette Knife and then I added more paste through a mask. Once it dried I used my finger to dab on a little more ink over the panel. This was then torn to create a rustic look.


When I saw this particular background I immediately though of the beach. I’ve kept the layout the same as the previous card. Alternating the leaves for the flowers fit the coastal vibe and colours.

Along with the Country Woods Designer Series Paper, I’ve also used the new So Swirly Embossing Folder. Keep an eye out for this Embossing Folder in the new releases. It’s a large 6″ x 8 1/2″ (15.2 x 21.6 cm). I added the surfboard and life buoy from the Beach Day bundle for an extra beachy feel.

I will be recreating this particular card on my FB Live tonight at 7:30 AEST. Replay will also be available on YouTube later on today.

Now, it’s your turn to let me know what your favourite is. I can’t wait to hear your selection. As for me, I don’t know what my favourite is 😂 as I really enjoyed creating them both.

Thank you so much for stopping by my corner of the world in Melbourne. I hope you enjoy all the beautiful inspiration you are going to be treated to today as you travel Around the World with us.

Next on our hop is my friend Cheryll Miller and I know she will have something amazing to share with you.
