CTMH Scrapbooking layout

As Promised .... Here are some of the Close To My Heart layouts I have enjoyed working on!

For current 2013/2014 available kits visit my web site at
 This Layout was from the Sanoma Workshop presented in 2011

 The richness of the Olive Green and the deep Plum colours really go well with the
stamped images and the tan backgrounds in the printed pages.


I loved this workshop so much I decided to continue with the 4th double page layout.


The Close To My Heart Cricut Cartridge was used to create the circle you see above


The following 3 double page layouts are from the Cruisin Workshop from the 2012 CTMH book


The bottle caps on the left are adhered with pop dots (layering 2 together and placed inside the cap).   I loved the stamp set that came with this workshop.  The vintage car and gas pump can be used for future masculine cards, etc. 


Here the car is stamped using red instead of the green one from the first and second layouts..


This is definitely a princess layout,  It was so much fun to do.  The crown is a rub on cut out and enhanced with tiny rhinestones.  All from the workshop supplies.

The Grey card stock is sanded with fine 0000 sand paper to give a distressed look. 
These photos show the layouts placed inside the album therefore you see a reflection on the pages. 


This is the latest Workshop (October) I worked on.  It was a delight to do. 
 I love the flowers and stamp set that came with this work shop.


I love these colours.  Coral, Aqua blue, milk chocolate...yummy.  The button centres are darling.


These flowers were from a paper flower packet that came with the work shop as well.

The banner above is made from burlap and has tiny pearls in between each triangle.

Fall Creative Inspirations

I hope you enjoy these latest cards I have created.  

I will be posting the photos for the latest 

Close To My Heart workshop later this evening.  


 This is what I created for the  Ladies WOW group invitations for October.
The stamp is from Close To My Hearts Stamp of the month.
I coloured it in using Permacolor Premium coloured pencils.  
The stamp Blessings is one I picked up at JoAnn Fabrics while in the states

 The Card stock was from Michaels. Instead of ribbon I drew a black line 
under the top card stock before stamping the harvest stamp.
The dimensions for the card is 41/4 X 5 1/2 (A2)

 This background embossed image is from England 
(purchased at our local Orilliacraft store - Paper Kapers).  
It is also a die cut which allows the backing to show through,
The Butterflies are Martha Stewart punches.  
  Both butterflies are glued in their middle sections only 
allowing the wings to stand up.  
The sparkle edges are outlined using Stickles. 
(Brown (Lg) and iridescent (Sm)) 
 I added a little bling to the centre of the embossed top flower.

The Thank You stamp is from the Dollar Store and  is centred 
on a Spellbinders Labels die cut edged with red ink matching 
the wings on the smaller butterfly,
The body and wings of the smaller butterfly are emphasized 
with iridescent Stickles.

Thank you for dropping by.
