Supplies Used: Adventure Fundamentals Paper Packet, Happy Moments Complements, Make It From Your Heart Vol. 3, Adventure Ribbon Pack, Shimmer Brush, and Gold Glitter Gems.

These papers are so easy to mix and match to coordinate with your photos! This layout was so quick, using the coordinating paper and complements along with the new Make It From Your Heart! For the flower, I cut it out of the fundamental paper and added a little sparkle to it with the Shimmer Brush.

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Silver & Gold Paper Packet, Gold Glitter Paper, Archival Black Ink, White & Gold Ribbon, Basics Ribbon Pack, Gold Glitter Gems, and White Daisy Cards & Envelopes Value Pack.

Using the Picture My Life cards that come as part of the current paper packets is a great way to put together some quick cards! And here’s a little tip when stamping with this black ink. I had a piece of lint or something on my stamp so when I stamped the image there was a “bad spot” within the nativity scene. I just took my Marvy Journaling Pen and filled in that spot and it worked perfectly to fit the flaw.
