New Product Blog Hop (Spring/Summer 2014)

If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Maria Myers.

Hoo-ray! Birthday Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 (Pattern 4), Ariana Paper Packet, Lollydoodle Paper Packet, Ivy Lane Paper Packet, Pink Glitter Paper, Lollydoodle Complements, Lollydoodle Assortment, Sparkle Flourishes, White Daisy Cardstock, Cotton Candy Washi Tape (retired), Flamingo Dots, Cricut Art Philosophy Collection, Corner Rounder, and 3D Foam Tape.

This layout is a great example of how you can mix and match all the paper packs and embellishments!  Who would have thought that Ariana, Ivy Lane, and Lollydoodle could all be used together?!?  What I really used were all the scraps left over after completing the Workshop on the Go Kits for each of these papers.  I am very pleased with this layout of “scraps”!  I cut the number with using Art Philosophy, layered it with Washi Tape, and trimmed the edges.  I used this same technique for the polka dot border on the top.  Sorry, I keep forgetting that the Cotton Candy Washi Tape is retired; I just really like it!  For this layout you could substitute another Washi Tape.  There are many that would coordinate.

Sheila Bennett is your next stop!

Lovely Ariana Layout (New Product Blog Hop)

Here we go again!  I am having so much fun with the new products!

Lovely Ariana Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Make It From Your Heart Volume 2 (Pattern 11), Ariana Paper PacketBalloon Ride Complements, Glitter Trim and Sequin Assortment (from the Ivy Lane Cardmaking Kit), and Embroidery Floss.

I was so excited that this layout came together so quick and easy!

New Product Blog Hop – Using Zip Strips

Today I’ve got another entry in the New Product Blog Hop.  I’m on a roll!

Life is Sweet Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Paper Fundamentals Basic Assortment, Ariana Paper Packet (zip strips), Ivy Lane Paper Packet (zip strips), Glitter Shimmer Trim and Sequin Dot Assortment (from the Ivy Lane Cardmaking Workshop Kit), Ivy Lane Assortment, Ivy Lane Scrapbooking Workshop Stamp Set, Inspiration Flourishes Stamp Set, Cashmere Cardstock, Inks (Smokey Plum and Olive), Scallop Border Punch, and Cricut Artiste Collection.

I was inspired by this sketch which is great for using zip strips!  And the Ariana and Ivy Lane strips go well together.  (Zip Strips are the added part of 12×12 B&T sheets, usually with product info on one side and CTMH utilizes these by making the opposite side decorative.)  The Paper Fundamentals was the perfect foundation.  Again, I used leftovers from the Workshop on the Go Kits.

Lollydoodle Layout – A Giggle a Day

Lollydoodle Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: Make It from Your Heart™ Vol. 2: Pattern 10, Lollydoodle Paper Packet, Paper Fundamentals, Pink Glitter Paper, Lollydoodle My Stickease, Flamingo Dots, Washi Tape (I guess what I used is retired but you could substitute others) and cardstock (Juniper and Twilight).

I started this layout with the leftover B&T papers and embellishments from the Lollydoodle WOTG Kit and then added a bunch of the many new products like the Paper Fundamentals and Pink Glitter Paper!

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to check out all the other great artwork in our New Product Blog Hop!

YOU Layout by Wendy Kessler

On this layout I changed the top pictures to 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 and eliminated the photo mats.  I also made the bottom pictures 1 3/4″ and adjusted the matting papers accordingly.  I masked both stamped frames so I could use the one for my journaling and change the title on the other one.

Lollydoodle Layout by Wendy Kessler

I altered the right page of this layout to accommodate my pictures (The top ones are 4×4.)  I cut the decorative squares on the right smaller (2″) and used three of them.  This is my favorite paper in the new book and I just love these layouts!
