Oh-So Grateful


Hello everyone! I'm back with my last Fall themed layout using this colorful collection from Close To My Heart called Pathfinding. You can check out my first three layouts featuring this collection HERE, HERE, & HERE. I started by using one of the 12 x 12 sheets of patterned paper as my background. Then I added some patterned paper, my four photo mats, a few chipboard pieces, a stamped sentiment, a journaling tag, and my title.


I spelled out "Oh-So Grateful" with some barn red alphabet stickers from DCWV for my title and then added some stitching across my letters. Adding stitching helps keep the letters in place insuring they won't fall off as time goes by. The little Lagoon journaling tag can be pulled out from behind the patterned paper so I can add some journaling later on.

 I hope you enjoyed my colorful Fall themed layout today. I had so much fun creating all kinds of different layouts with this fabulous collection. Next month I will be creating all of my layouts with Close To My Hearts Yuletide Carol Paper Pack & Yuletide Carol Complements. Thanks for visiting!

Making Memories


Hello everyone! I'm back to share another 12 x 12 layout featuring Close To My Hearts Pathfinding Collection. I just love this colorful sheet of patterned paper from the collection, all the colors are fabulous and perfect for any Fall themed layout.


I layered some colored cardstock and a few chipboard pieces to create the base for my two photos. Love the barn red, glacier, and autumn terracotta cardstock layered behind and over this colorful sheet of patterned paper. I also added a coordinating sentiment strip to the top of my layout and a few strips of bronze shimmer trim to the top and bottom of my patterned paper. Thanks for visiting!

Fall 2014 Layout


Hello everyone! Today I have another Fall themed layout to share that I created with Close To My Hearts Pathfinding Paper Pack & Close To My Hearts Pathfinding Complements Chipboard Sheet. I also used a fun little pattern from Close To My Hearts Reflections How- To Program called Bottom Border- Title. There are three different patterns to choose from, I'm using the second alternate pattern with the 4" x 3" photo and the three 2 1/2" x  2 1/2" photos.


I focused on using a few different sheets of patterned paper, some coordinating cardstock, and minimal chipboard pieces. I followed along with the pattern and added my green corrugated "Fall 2014" title and a few chipboard pieces to the bottom strip of patterned paper.


Of course I had to add some blue stitching and a bit of stamping for a little bit of subtle color, I added a terracotta colored leaf from the Pathfinding Complements to the stitching as well. I hope you like and Thanks for visiting!

Fall Into Autumn


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a colorful Fall themed layout that I created with Close To My Hearts gorgeous Pathfinding Collection. I will be creating and sharing a few different layouts featuring this collection all month long here on my blog and over at Jessica's. Today I'm sharing the first layout I created with this super cute collection.


Before I even started my layout I knew I wanted to highlight some of the gorgeous colors that are in the patterned paper so I started by painting and misting my 12 x 12 sheet of Champagne cardstock with some Autumn Terracotta and Lagoon ink mixed with water. I just love how the Autumn Terracotta and Lagoon color combo turned out. Since this is a Fall themed layout I used a picture of a tree with the sun setting behind it, a few chipboard pieces from the Pathfinding Complements Chipboard Sheet ans some Twine to my photo.


I hope you enjoyed my colorful Fall themed layout today. I will be back next Wednesday with another 12 x 12 layout featuring this super cute collection. Thanks for visiting!

Happy WCMD 2014


Hello everyone & Happy WCMD! I say this every year but I just love World Card Making Day! It's a great excuse to get crafty with some friends and have fun with some stamps and paper. I have a super easy clean and simple card to share today using products from Simon Says Stamp & Basic Gray. 


I started by using a 6 x 6 sheet of pattered paper from Basic Grays Fresh Cuts Collection as my card base. Then I stamped my "Thinking Of You" sentiment and flower from Simon Says Stamp Thinking Of you Clear Stamp Set onto a small piece of white cardstock. To finish I matted my stamped cardstock with some blue watercolored paper from Basic Gray Fresh Cuts Collection. You can check out a close up below.

Trouble's Brewing


Hello everyone! I'm back with my last Halloween themed layout using this fun and fabulous collection from Close To My Heart called Scaredy Cat. You can check out my first three layouts using this collection HERE, HERE, & HERE. To create this layout I started by following a sketch from Citrus Twist. I didn't stray to far away from the original sketch but I did change a few things like the stitching and I used one photo instead of two.


I started by adding a large strip of pattered paper to the right side of my 12 x 12 Thistle cardstock. Then I layered my photo with a few different sheets of patterned paper from the collection, some Colonial White cardstock, and a stapled sticker from the coordinating sticker sheet. For my title I spelled out "Trouble's Brewing" with some orange alphabet stickers from Glitz Designs and then added the little striped crow from the Scaredy Cat Complements sticker sheet. Isn't he cute?
 

I hope you enjoyed my fun little Halloween themed layout today. I had so much fun creating all different kinds of layouts with this collection. Next month I will be creating all my layouts with Close To My Hearts Pathfinding Paper Pack & Pathfinding Complements Chipboard Sheets. It's a super cute collection and I can't wait to start crafting with it, you can check it out HERE.

2 Page Halloween Layout

Hello everyone! Today I have a two page 12 x12 layout to share made with Close To My Hearts Scaredy Cat Collection. I used a fun little 2 page sketch called "Disappearing Act" from Close To My Hearts Magic How To Program. 


For the left side of the page I used a 12 x12 sheet of Sunset cardstock as my background, a large sheet of patterned paper, and a 5 x 7 photo mat. To the left side of my cardstock I added the square stickers that spelled out "Halloween" for my title. I also added the the broom riding witch and a few stars from the Scaredy Cat Complements sticker sheets to the upper right side. You can see a close up below.


For the right side of my 2 page layout I used another 12 x12 sheet of Sunset cardstock for my background. Then I added two different sheets of patterned paper to the bottom half of my layout, added my three 5 x 3 photo mats and a 5 1/2 x 2 journaling square. For the 5 1/2 x 2 journaling square I used a vellum quote and adhered it with two stickers. For the upper right side of my page I stamped a large spiderweb in black ink, added the large haunted house sticker, and added two googly eyed bats. I think the little googly eyes give the bats some character.


 When I started this two page layout, the main things I knew I wanted to use were these amazing large sized stickers from the Scaredy Cat Complements sticker sheets. I just love how fun and versatile they are and they really add to a layout.
