This is a great time to take advantage of the Bang for your Buck Special AND your purchase also qualifies towards the Stamp of the Month.

Sweetheart Workshop Layouts

Supplies used: Close to My Heart Sweetheart Workshop Kit (Sweetheart Level 2 Paper Pack, stamp set, Sweetheart Level 2 Assortment), liquid applique, and black & cotton candy inks, and Color-Ready Oxford Alphabet.  Chalk, vellum quote, and fun flock from my stash.

I changed the second layout into two 1-page layouts for different books.

It’s All Good layout

This layout was made with a special kit from Close to My Heart quite awhile back called Tickled Pink.  With all girls pink is a popular color at our house so I had my fair share of this paper!  Supplies: CTMH Tickled Pink Kit, cricut, unknown gems.

CTMH Spotlight Blog Hop featuring Color-Ready Kraft Borders

This month’s Spotlight Blog Hop is using the Kraft Color-Ready Borders by Close to My Heart.  There are so many things you can do with these borders.  You can ink them different colors, use them in different lengths, layer them, and use them in combination with other embellishments like sparkles, pearls, and ribbon.

The hop makes a full circle so if you are starting here just continue until you make your way back.  If you have already started then you should be coming from Nikka’s Blog.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Mistletoe Level 2 Paper Pack, Mistletoe Level 2 Assortment, Pearl Opaques, Color-Ready Kraft Borders, Old World Alphabet stamp set, New England Ivy Ink, and Cranberry Ink.  Page Maps Sketch – October 2009

Hey sis, you were right – the Old World Alphabet is awesome!  It’s one that I didn’t care for from the look but after using it I am in love!  For my layout, I used Cranberry and New England Ivy inks and a sponge to color the Color-Ready Kraft Borders.  I layered them and added pearls to accent.

Your next stop is Vicki’s Blog.
