"For Always" A Wedding Scrapbook Layout!

"For Always", the name of the Paper Pack from Close To My Heart that is currently on my scrap table, definately does lend itself towards Weddings! So I used it to scrapbook our family's trip to my Cousin's Wedding!

I love the pops of bold "Honey" and "Lagoon" with these pretty black and white patterns!

Okay, so if you are paying attention you have already caught on that I am IN LOVE with these sparkly adhesive "Glamour" letters! I cannot get over how awesome they are, and I mean it! Plus they made the perfect title for my cousin's Wedding page!

This is Layout #4 that we will create at the "For Always" Scrap Class on February 23rd. Check out my face-book event on my fan-page for more details.

Happy Crafting!

"For Always" Flower Girl Scrapbook Layout!

This is my third 2 page scrapbook layout made using the "For Always" Paper Pack from Close To My Heart! I found inspiration for the design of this layout from a sketch I saw in the New Idea Book (that comes out February 1st). It was actually an example of a Studio J Digital Scrapbooking template, but I made mine in paper this time! You can say I "scraplifted"!

I am really loving how the title came out. I used the black glitter Glamour adhesive alphabet stickers! So easy and so fun! I also added the black sparkle swirls as an accent underneith.

I wrote in to the corporate office and asked if they would consider putting Washi Tape in the New Idea Book... someone was listening! We now carry our first roll of Washi Tape! I have never used it before, but have seen it as an up and coming trend in paper crafting magazines. This is my first time trying it out and I LOVE it! It is really cute and easy to use. I like the torn edges and that it the polka dots are see through!

Hope you have had fun checking out my "For Always" scrapbook pages. This will be Layout #3 that we create at the Feb. 23rd class.

Happy Crafting!

"For Always" Sparkles and Tulle!

I have been having so much fun with the "For Always" Paper Pack from Close To My Heart! This is the 2nd 2 page scrapbook layout that I have made with it. I used sketch 11 from the "Make It From Your Heart- Vol 1" book. Six photos!

These Glamour Adhesive Alphabet stickers are AWESOME! So quick and easy to add a title and looks very polished and fun! I highly recommend these!

I added some leftover black tulle ribbon as a pleated accent next to my vertical photo. I also added a swirl of black sparkles. These items are great accents to enhance this paper pack.

This is Layout #2 that we will create at the "For Always" Scrap Class on February 23rd. Hope you can join us!

Happy Crafting!

Preview! For Always Valentine Scrapbook Pages

Valentine Layout: "For Always" Paper Pack
This is a sneak peek at one of the new paper packs featured in the NEW Close To My Heart Idea Book, which will be revealed in February! I could not resist sharing this Valentine layout that I created for my daughter.

"For Always" love quote zip strip
Black and White patterned paper is perfect for Valentine's Day when it is paired with Ruby Red! I love this color combo so much that I am entering this layout in the following Challenges!

"Dynamic Duos"- DD#36 Red and Black and Valentine
"Color My Heart"- Color Dare #26 Black and White with a Pop of Color

Paper Bow cut with "Artiste" Cartridge- Cricut
I could not wait to cut out this paper bow with my new "Artiste" Cricut Cartridge from Close To My Heart!

Spiral Note Pad Page cut with "Artiste" Cartridge- Cricut
I also used the "Artiste" Cartridge to create this journaling area that looks like a note pad page ripped from a spiral book.

I LOVE the "Whooo's Your Valentine" stamp set that comes with the Valentine Kit! I have been using it even MORE then I thought I would! (And I haven't even gotten to the owls that I have plans for yet!) This stamp set might be one I won't be able to let go of!

We will make this scrapbook layout at our February Scrap Class, Feb. 23rd. RSVP with a supply order by Feb 5th.

Happy Crafting!


Clementine Scrapbook Class!

I love the Clementine Workshop on the Go Kit from Close To My Heart! The colors are beautiful and natural, yet exciting. The flower embellishments are adorable! Plus, I love the stamp set because it is perfect for the "kissing" technique! Take a look at the layouts I created for my scrapbook class.

Clementine Layout #1: Sketch 3 from the "Make It From Your Heart- Vol 1"

Clementine Layout #1

The highlight from my Clementine Layout #1 is the zip strip that had the perfect word accents for photos that I loved!

Clementine Layout #2:

Clementine Layout #2

The highlight from my Clementine Layout #2 is the stamp set which was perfect to create a "kissed" flower accent. Simply ink the base solid shape, then "kiss" it by stamping a smaller detailed stamp that is UN-inked against the original inked stamp. It will remove ink and reveal a great one of a kind look when it is stamped!

Clementine Layout #3:

Clementine Layout #3

This layout is for my Wedding Album. It is for our Father Daughter Dance and Mother Son Dance. My husband and I danced with our parents to the same song. I am going to use the white space I left blank on the LH page to display the song lyrics!

Clementine Layout #4: Sketch 8 from "Make It From Your Heart- Vol 1"

Clementine Layout #4

The highlight from my 4th Clementine Layout is that I love the blue and western type accents in the background and texture papers. It was a great fit for these photos of my daughter in her denim cowgirl overalls!

Hope you had fun checking out my Clementine Scrapbook Page Layouts!
