Into the Wild

This summer I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Alaska and I came back with so many great memories and pics of the forests and fish and wildlife there.  I’m so excited to paste them on these sets of pages with the Into the Wild papers in forest greens and sapphire blues reminiscent of starry skies, and with lots of woodland animals, etc.

So Much Happy

These colorful springtime layouts make me so happy!! Full of flowers and butterflies, they are the perfect showcase for gorgeous spring time photos:

IMG_7340

Love the orange triangles, darting in from each side and the butterfly complements fluttering up the page…. This is a great first or last page in an album.

IMG_7341

This versatile layout works for all your spring photos…

IMG_7342

The  cut-aparts page in the paperpack includes wonderful accents for this layout: clouds, butterflies, banners and the rainbow ampersand, as well as the banner on the layout below:

IMG_7343IMG_7344

The background paper for the layout above includes the row of flowers across the bottom. Easiest page ever to put together!

IMG_7345

I love the ombre background paper for the layout above as well….

IMG_7346

Some nice pages for Valentines Day or other loving occasion…..

IMG_7347IMG_7348IMG_7349

The flowers on this page are from the cut-aparts paper included in the paper pack.  A bit of fussy cutting is involved but the results are so worth it, don’t you think?

Feels Like Home

Absolutely love these layouts with their spring-like floral colors and patterns. They are perfect pages to add to a wedding album I am creating for my son and his fiancee.

 

IMG_7375

The “white washed boards” look of these base pages are a perfect backdrop to the layout above

IMG_7376

It’s hard to see here but the diagonals above are silver embossed lines that add an elegance to these pages….

IIMG_7377

The new “cut-outs” pages included with each paper pack offer great titles and embellishments, like the “together always” banner, butterfly and “HOME” title above

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:

IMG_7264

Love the ombre red paper at the top

IMG_7262

Fun dinosaur images on this boy page

IMG_7263

The perfect matching girl page

IMG_7265

Nice cactus stickers for my family trip to Arizona photos

IMG_7266

More fun dino pages

IMG_7267

Very versatile layout for a variety of fun photos!

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!!

 

img_7276-e1550006574208[1]

Gorgeous single pages with paper piecing and paper weaving

IMG_7281

Lots of layering on these pages

IMG_7280

Love the Rainbow colors!!

IMG_7279

Versatile with great journaling options

IMG_7278

Love the tiny hearts background stamping

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!
