Merry Christmas Layout by Wendy Kessler

 

I changed the first layout by flipping the photo mats on each page to work with my pictures.  I don’t have photos yet for the second layout so I only attached one side of the elements that overlap onto the photo mats.  I also made the third photo mat on the second page the same size as the first two.  I don’t know if you can tell, but I wrote the size of the photo that I would need right on the mats so I won’t need to measure when it comes time to adding pictures.

CTMH Technique Blog Hop – Embossing Folders

Welcome to this month’s CTMH Technique Blog Hop.  Today you will see how we’ve used embossing folders.  If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Joy McHargue.

Embossed Card by Wendy KesslerSupplies used are all Close to My Heart: Quatrefoil Embossing Folder, Cardstock (Indian Corn Blue, Colonial White), Scalloped Border Punch, Bronze Shimmer Trim, Paper Flowers (retired), Jubilee Paper Packet, and Brown & Tan Sparkles Assortment.

It has been quite awhile since I did anything in my scrapbook room even though I have had the idea for this card for quite some time.  My idea started with this pin and grew from there.  I am new to using embossing folders and I love how they add so much to a card.  I couldn’t help but bling this one up by placing sparkles in all the open embossed shapes.  This is a very easy card to replicate and is perfect for many different occasions (Birthday, Thank You, Mother’s Day)

Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Magnificent Metals

This hop is a circle; if you have just started simply continue until you make your way back here; if you have already started, you should be coming from Joy McHargue.

Girl Scout Bridging Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Cardstock (Outdoor Denim and Brown Bag (retired)), Ivy Lane Paper Packet, Jubilee Paper PacketPaper Fundamentals Basic Assortment, Skylark Complements, Durable Studs – Square (retired), Harvest Charms (retired), and Make It from Your Heart Volume 2 (Pattern 2).

I really enjoyed putting this layout together because it really is a stash buster.  I used old metals as well as scraps left from new papers, using up multiple paper packets.  For the metal I found some old accents that went with a specific paper packet.  This is a good example of thinking outside the box with these specific embellishments.  The complements that I used were also specific but I was able to mix those in as well.  I really wanted to use antique brads but it’s been so long I can’t find them (!) so I used the studs instead.

Mine are a little different:

Ivy Lane Card Kit by Wendy Kessler

This kit provides supplies and instructions to create a total of 15 cards (5 each of these three designs): 

Ivy Lane Card 1 by Wendy Kessler

Ivy Lane Card 2 by Wendy Kessler

 

The instructions call for Pear ink but I didn’t think that looked right so I changed it on this card and used Olive Ink instead.  You can see the difference from card 1 (used Pear on the sentiment) and card 2 (used Olive on the flower).  If I could do it again, I would use Olive on both but with all that masking already done I really didn’t want to redo it. :-)

Ivy Lane Card 3 by Wendy Kessler

I altered this last design by using the B&T paper for the banner on the bottom and the Inspiration Flourishes Stamp Set.  Don’t be afraid to change up the cards like this to make them suit your own personal needs!
