More Chantilly Layouts

Here are some additional layouts using the Chantilly papers and the Chantilly Complements Dimensional Elements.  I missed the layout ideas that used to be on the back of the My Stickease sheets until I realized that I could just look in the Idea Book for ideas (duh!).  So look at my layouts, then turn to page 18 in the 2013 Spring/Summer Idea Book.  It really is a great source for inspiration, whether you use the colors, the layout, or the entire project.

With the start of a new year, I decided to do some cleaning in my scrapbook room.  It’s really amazing what you can find sometimes!  I found these embellishments that I had made and hadn’t used yet.  Then I saw the Mojo Monday sketch and thought I would just use them up right away instead of stashing them away!  For that last card, I needed some more color than the scraps I was working with and couldn’t find (or don’t have any more) of the Superhero papers.  You will never guess where that tiny piece of Sky-colored star paper came from!….the Believe Christmas paper!!  I just love Close to My Heart’s double-sided paper for reasons like this.  It was just what I was looking for!


November 2012 CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop – All Scraps

WELCOME!  I’m so glad you are joining us for our “Use Your Stash Blog Hop”.  If you have already started, you should be coming from Joy’s Blog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.  This month we are focusing on our scraps.  This is one of my favorite challenges because I love using things up.

Supplies used: Die Cuts with a View paper, Close to My Heart ribbons, Close to My Heart Just Blooms Flutter Paper Shapes, American Crafts Thickers, and Close to My Heart Opaque Mocha Adhesive Gems.

When I first think of “use up scraps” I think of paper.  But for this hop I decided to do something different and use up some embellishments, specifically scraps of ribbon.  I really like using paper like this that already has a pattern on it.  It makes for a quick and easy layout.  I also like adding embellishments to the base like the pearls I added to the flower centers along the bottom.

I used the sketch below from The Scrapbook Room.  This would also work great to use up scraps of paper.

Now hop on over to Judy’s Blog for more ideas on using up your stash.

Here is a list of participants:

Stamp Sunday #45: Posterboard Alphabet

E1014 Posterboard Alphabet stamp set $29.95 (You can purchase this for half-price when you qualify and order the November Stamp of the Month!)

Supplies used are all retired products by Close to My Heart, with the exception of the Indian Corn Blue ink and the Posterboard Alphabet stamp set.

Sorry for the crappy photo…having camera issues today.  I’m not sure I should admit that I have had this layout sitting around for <gasp> years!  I’ve cleaned my scrapbook room this week and found it has made it’s way to the next step of having pictures with it.  Really, all I needed to do is add the photos…  At least it was an easy one for today when I am short on time!  I will use flip flaps for to include all the individual family photos under the one on the right page of everyone.  I used 3D Foam Tape to pop up the photos as needed around the dimensional element pieces.  The Posterboard Alphabet stamp set that I used is great for many different techniques.  I stamped it on my patterned paper, then cut out the letters for my title.
