Let Close To My Heart show you how to hand craft your own set of bistro curtains with our terrific textiles, NO sewing involved! Curtains so simple you’ll come unstitched!

Artbooking Layout Series – Freedom 1

Sweet Baby Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Cardstock (Sweet Leaf, White Daisy, Cotton Candy, & Black), unknown patterned paper, Kaisercraft Rhinestones, CTMH Cotton Candy ink, CTMH stamp set, Tattered Angels Pearl Glitter Mist, and Zig Markers.

I used the basic layout from the right side of the Freedom Layout but changed up the title (I used Sweet from page 85).  You can’t see from my picture but I used Glitter Mist on the white overlay and it looks so pretty in person.  I added a stamping to the background of the stars.  I can’t remember the stamp set I used but any background or pattern would work.  The punched out green star also fit perfectly within the overlay to add focus to my title.
