Chelsea Gardens Layout

Ok everyone!

This is the PRETTIEST layout I have made in a long time!!!

Got back to basics with flowers, flourishes, stamping, and sparkles! Why don't I stamp more often?!? I *think* I have enough stamps to justify it...

We used the gorgeous Chelsea Gardens Workshop for this layout:

The colors, the marble, the polka dots... seriously LOVE this paper!

I rolled the outside edges of my stamp in a darker ink to give my flowers some shading:


Really though. I should stamp more often...

Gimmie Some Sugar Layout

The name of this paper is so fun! And perfect for those of us who are addicted to baking...

We used the Gimmie Some Sugar Workshop for this layout:

To accommodate pocket-page scrapbookers, Close To My Heart has included a sheet of cut-aparts in each paper packet now. I am NOT a pocket-page kinda girl!!! Just can't do it. But I DO like using the fun ones as titles:

And journaling spots:

Add some ribbon and cork hearts and you have a really quick, really cute page!

Silver and Gold Layout

Not to brag, but this one turned really good! I like it a lot! SOOOO sparkly/foil-y!!! ...which also means difficult to photograph...

We used the Silver and Gold Workshop:

I really try to only use the items included in the Workshop, but for this layout I did add some black embroidery floss to hang my gold embossed ornaments and title:

Love the hanging ornaments!

I think shades of gray with metallic and a pop of black might be a new favorite color combo!

Beary Christmas Layout

I wasn't a huge fan of the whole BEAR-y part of this paper, so I just went more Christmas focused!

For this layout my Close To My Heart scrapbooking club used the Beary Christmas Workshop:

Nothing wrong with good old fashioned traditional Christmas colors! Especially if they're glittered:

Along this side is where I plan to journal:

I think a cute Christmas poem or something... still looking...

Happy Christmas in April!

Falling For You Layout

I WISH it was still Fall...

starting to get a little disgustingly warm for me...

For this layout my Close To My Heart scrapbooking group used the Falling For You Workshop:

I loved this paper! Something about the big outlined leaves I think...

I just had to stamp a bunch of leaves and color them in to match:

Anytime the weather wants to become unseasonably cold that's just fine with me!

BIG fan of the sparkly words and stars in the Workshop Complements with this one:

I love spiders!!!

Happy (spring) Halloween!

Little Dreamer Layout


It's another Close To My Heart Scrapbook group layout!

This is the last catch-up one though, I promise!

Here was August's layout:

This was the super-girly super-unicorny Little Dreamer Workshop Kit. Perfect when you have a super-girly girl who happens to have been photographed in a purple unicorn costume!

Loved this saying! "Always be yourself.. unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn." I know it's everywhere now, but it's still cute. 

Ta-Da! Finally caught up!
