Easter layout

When I went on my last scrapbook retreat, I brought a few of the layouts I have gotten from swaps that I have been in that I wanted to use. This layout was actually made by one of my downline consultants, Tiffany Watson, and I used my 2007 Easter pictures. I also used the eastertime and easter egg stamp sets from close to my heart to further embellish the layout. Thanks Tiffany!

Cupcake girl

I made this layout using all close to my heart products using the daydream paperpack, daydream stickease, cupcake sprinkles stamp set, large chocolate alphabet stamp set, blush ricrac ribbon, and pearl paint. This was a workshop I did with some friends and I love how it turned out. These pictures are for my daughter's 4th birthday and I bought her a dora cupcake birthday cake so it worked out really well with this workshop layout.

Carnival "Daze" layout

I just got back from a scrap-n-stamp retreat in Canmore that was organized by my upline, Nancy Klein. Thanks, Nancy! It always goes by so fast and you never get done as much as you had hoped. I made this layout using the basic grey paper called Romani and I stamped the title with a close to my heart stamp set called believe caps. These pictures are taken at a carnival that is put on each year by the school that my kids attend.

Come back and visit my blog often as I will be posting all the layouts that I finished at the retreat every couple of days.
Thanks for looking!

Let us grow with love

This layout uses the Bella paperpack and stickease from Close To My Heart. It is also embellished with pins and photo clips but no stamping involved. Love it!

Tickled Pink layout "I am......"

I made this layout using the "tickled Pink" scrapbook kit that was a promotion earlier this year. The papers are stunning! I plan to make this layout about me which is not something I do ever as I am focused on creating pages for my kids' albums. I will re-post it once I add pictures and it is complete.

CTMH Scrapbook Journal

Close To My Heart will be selling our new journals in the Spring 2010 idea book. Here is a SNEAK PREVIEW. It is so cool because your can scrapbook your title page and then slip it into the front cover in the page protector so that your artwork does not catch on your bag when you take it in and out. We made this at our regional celebration in Portland, Oregan and used the Grace papers and "delightful things" stamp set, cocoa grosgrain ribbon and colonial white buttons with hemp.

Okay as I promised here is the rest of the artwork that we did at the Close To My Heart Regionals on day two....

This "Joyful" garland was made with a card kit which is currently featured in our Autumn/Winter Close To My Heart idea book and it is called "my originals around the holiday" card kit. How cool is that!

We have a crop from 7 pm to midnight this evening where we will be making more cards using the Grace paperpack. The above artwork is what we made today including the Twitterpated layout and several cards using the jingle paperpack.

Halloween Layout

I made this layout using Close To My Heart's enchanted paperpack, creepy cobwebs stamp set, witch's brew stamp set, and halloween cuttlebug embossing folder. It is so fun to random stamp white daisy cardstock and create your own pattern paper in your layouts....... the possibilities are endless!
