Magnifique Layout


I love this paper with the peacock on it and was saving it for something special. This picture of Lexi with her violin is so precious to me and perfect for this layout. I used blue and green sparkles on the feathers and Mocha Opaque pearls around the bird. All supplies are from Close to My Heart.

Spring/Summer 2011 New Idea Book Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close To My Heart new product Sneek Peek Blog Hop. Many Consultants are celebrating the upcoming release of the new Spring/Summer Idea Book that comes out on February 1. Be sure to check all the blogs at the bottom of this post!!!

I am highlighting a new paper pack called Mayberry. My layout uses the Workshop on the Go for this paper pack.

Just look at this beautiful paper. I am also showing some of the yummy ribbon and buttons that are in this catalog.This is the stamp set that comes with the paper pack.Take a look at the scallop at the top of my layout. To make this scallop, I stamped the pear several times. Then I took a 1 1/4 inch punch and punched circles out of the pear image. I then cut them in half and they made the scallop. Creative huh? I learned to do that from this workshop. Keep checking back to see the new posts that keep being added.

Have a SUPER day!!!

Last weekend I took a class with Irina from Everything Papercrafts. We had so much fun and made so many projects that I didn't have a chance to finish the cards that I started. Since, I am having a Super Day, I thought this would be a fun card to make. I hope you are having a Super Day too!!!


For my card, I used Supercupcake Marci, and Super Heros Window set. They are both from Irina's company, La-La Land Crafts. The DP is from Basic Grey.

The Scrappin' Ladies Layout

One of the things that bring great joy to my life is my CTMH Business. Through CTMH I have made such wonderful friendships and love having them over for my monthly Scrapbook Workshops. We always have so much fun together and the group keeps growing. This layout uses the new "Wings" paper pack and a couple of new stamps sets that will be available in the new catalog that comes out in February. They are "Dreams Come True" and "Take a Picture". I have also used some of the new embelishments. Notice the pleated ribbon and black courdoroy buttons, brads and black ribbon.

January Workshop

For my workshop this month we will make these layouts that I learned how to make at Convention this pas summer. We will be using the "Magnifique" paper pack and "Flip Flaps."
These layouts are interactive, as they open to show more photos. This picture shows the layout closed.

When you open the flip flaps, this is what it looks like on the inside.This is the second layout that we will make. Here it is closed.And, then open. I love that it can hold so many photos. I was able to scrapbook most of my vacation photos in these two layouts.This is the paper that comes in the "Magnifique" paper pack. I have got to come up with something really special for the peacock page.

O' Christmas Tree

I had fun with this layout of Lexi decorating the tree and my favorite ornaments. The Cricut cartridges used are Plantin SchoolBook and Winter Frolic. I love my Cricut and wish that I used it more. The little figures just add so much to a layout.
