Thanks for joining us this month! If you have already started the hop, you should be coming from Stephanie Chumbley’s Blog.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Sophia Paper Packet (retired), Sophia My Stickease (retired), Clear Sparkle Flourishes, Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired), Green Glitter Glitz, and Stardust Glitter Glitz.
The Sophia Paper Pack was one of my favorites. I still had some left along with the coordinating Stickease so I decided to use them for this challenge. These are both retired but I also added in some current product. The most common things I do with My Stickease is add 3D Foam Tape to add dimension, and add more embellishing to them in some way. You could use brads, ribbon, sparkles, or my recent favorite – Glitter Glitz. On my layout, I used Sweet Leaf Ribbon (retired), Sparkle Flourishes, and Stardust Glitter Glitz. I also used Green Glitter Glitz to add some color and sparkle to the scalloped paper at the top of the page. One more secret was the placement of the Stickease “buttons”… the scallop was a scrap that I had with my papers and it was a tad bit shorter than what I need for the page. I used these button stickers to fill the gap!

Supplies used: CTMH Clementine Paper Packet, CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, CTMH Almond Glitter Glitz, Making Memories paperie greenhouse stickers, and Kaiser Pearls.
One of my goals this month is to use up my Clementine Paper Packet so you will see a bit more with this paper and then I will be done! For this layout I took two of the zip strips that were cut from the tops of the papers and put them together to make the decorative border in the center. I used Glitter Glitz to the edges of the scalloped circles to add some sparkle to the page. I used this sketch from Inspired Blueprints.

Supplies used: Echo Park Little Girl papers and stickers, Doodlebug Designs stickers, CTMH cardstock (retired), and CTMH Stardust Glitter Glitz Gel.
For the white glittery border strip, I “painted” white cardstock with the CTMH Stardust Glitter Glitz Gel, let dry, and attached. This is a great way to add glitter!!

I have a Thanksgiving layout to share with you today.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Art Philosophy Cricut Collection, Olivia Paper Packet (retired), Bronze Glitter Glitz, Mini-Medley Accents Antiqued Gold, Artiste Cricut cartridge, Gold Metallics Marker, and inks (Autumn Terracotta, Olive, & Cocoa).
To get the different colors on the leaves, I first inked in Autumn Terracotta, then using sponge daubers added Olive and Cocoa before stamping. I love the look! All the stamps I used are from the Seasons stamp set which is included in the Art Philosophy Collection. The title is cut from the Artiste cartridge.
