Something Fierce Layouts

While I’m not a big fan of dinosaurs, having no small boys at home, the Something Fierce paper with its dinosaur images really work for these layouts, which will suit our family photos to Arizona and New Mexico this past January.  The cactus puffy stickers are perfect for them as well:

Don’t forget Valentine’s Day is coming up!!!

I even had enough paper left over to make this Anniversary card using January’s Stamp of the Month.  It’s a shaker card with confetti inside the acetate window that slides around as you shake the card.  LOVE IT!  The metallic silver thread and silver shimmer tape are additional nice accents to the card.

I Heart Us Layouts

Of all the papers in Close to My Heart’s Seasonal Expressions 1 catalog, my favorite is this I Heart Us paper.  Love these layouts with their gorgeous splashes of color!!

Gorgeous single pages with paper piecing and paper weaving

IMG_7281

Lots of layering on these pages

IMG_7280

IMG_7275

Fun title from the cut apart page….

I loved trying my hand with paper weaving on the first layout using the rainbow striped paper.  I used stamping and paper piecing to create the wreath on the other singleton page in this layout.  Theses single pages are useful as the first and last pages in an album where you don’t see a full two page spread at once.  The rest of the layouts made from this paper pack are a versatile set of colorful pages, easily complementing many sets of photos. I love the cheerful, spring-like pages!

Boutique Pages

Of all the papers in Close to My Heart’s Holiday Season Expressions catalog, my favorite is this Boutique paper.  Love these layouts!!

img_7216img_7217img_7218img_7219img_7220img_7221

I even got to try the new texture paste and stencils on this last “Sweet Moments” layout.  The stencil was easy to cut from CTMH’s Artistry cartridge on stencil stock – a thick vellum.  I cut an arabesque patter out as a stencil and used the medium opaque texture paste and a palette knife to press the paste through the stencil, moving the stencil tile together an image of the dimensions I liked.  The paste dries in 20 min or so, leaving a 3D texture on the paper.  LOVE IT!

‘Tis the Season

I love the classic Christmas colors and patterns of the ‘Tis the Season paper pack, combined with some wonderful Cricut cut out from Close To My Heart’s new Christmas Cricut cartridge, “Season of Joy”.  Take a look at the antlers, pinecones, deer and trees cut out on the following layouts:

Oh What Fun!!

This has been a surprisingly cold and snowy winter here in Elsah!  We enjoyed a foot of snow last weekend and another 12-14″ of snow if forecast starting tomorrow and more next week as well.  Lots of great skiing, sledding, tubing and snowman building opportunities! Not to mention, warming up by the fire in a cabin…  Oh What Fun is the perfect fun and colorful paper pack for winter:

Hello Pumpkin!

As I’m getting ready for the new spring selection of paper packs and exciting new embellishments and thin cuts, I’m working to use up of the paper packs from the last Seasonal Expressions.  This set of Hello Pumpkin paper from last fall was still lying around waiting to be made into pages…

Although we have 5 wonderfully, creative kids who have come up with amazing Halloween costumes, they are rapidly outgrowing that stage and my need for Halloween pages is diminishing.  Luckily the CTMH papers are versatile enough that I was able to make all-purpose layouts from this paper pack, perfect for fall or birthdays or anything!  See for yourself:

Bats and Cats, Oh My!

As I’m getting ready for the new fall selection of paperpacks and exciting new embellishments and thin cuts, I’m working to use up all my older, unused stock.  This set of Bats and Cats paper from last fall was still lying around waiting to be made into pages…

Although we have 5 wonderfully, creative kids who have come up with amazing Halloween costumes, they are rapidly outgrowing that stage and my need for Halloween pages is diminishing.  Luckily the CTMH papers are versatile enough that I was able to make several non-Halloween layouts from this paper pack in addition to two decidedly Halloween-ish layouts.  See for yourself:

City Sidewalks

I love the supper bright and colorful papers in the City Sidewalks paper pack, especially the yellow sun paper in the first layout below.  These bright papers are perfectly showcased by the kraft paper used as a base; I am really pleased at how they came out!

These are wonderful pages for summer photos of the kiddos:

with lots and lots of photo mats, the pages are a powerhouse of family love!
