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.

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!

Artbooking Layout Series – School 1

Baby Layout by Wendy Kessler

Supplies used: CTMH Artbooking Cricut Collection, CTMH Cardstock (Outdoor Denim, Smokey Plum, and Cotton Candy), and Colorbok Gems.

This overlay from the School Layout button makes it very quick and easy to scrap a page of 4×6 photos (trimmed down a little).  I added the heart border from page 58 (overlapped the center heart for continuity) and I was done!

June 2012 CTMH Use Your Stash Blog Hop – Oldest Paper

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 Debi Barber’sBlog.  If this is your first stop, continue through until you make your way back here.

This month we are pulling out some of our oldest Close to My Heart paper.

Supplies used: CTMH Between Friends Level 1, CTMH Opaque Mocha Adhesive Gems, CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, Petaloo Color Me Crazy Flowers, and Desert Sand ink.

This is among the oldest paper that I have.  I think I purchased it on clearance in my first days as a consultant.  Even though it’s old, the diecuts (not even stickers!) are going to work well for some teen girl pages.

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

If you get lost along the way you can see the entire list of hoppers on my previous post.
