Supplies used: Close to My Heart Mischief Level 2 Paper Pack (retired), Stampin Up punch, ProvoCraft Rob & Bob Studio coaster card, Close to My Heart You & Me stamp set, Close to My Heart Barn Red and Black ink, Close to My Heart buttons, Close to My Heart Waxy Flax, and foam tape.
This layout was inspired by Tammy’s layout from this months Scrap Our Stash Pagerize Challenge. I really used my stash with this one. The striped background paper is actually two pieces of scraps that I put together (using the stripes as my guide) and if you were to take off the photo mat you’d see the hole in the middle. I really liked this paper though and was determined to use it. And you’d never know! I took Tammy’s layout and turned it. Her border punch reminded me of one I had (that I’ve never used until now!). The orange coaster was too bright but it was perfect after I inked it up with some Barn Red. I changed the photo in the circle to journaling and mimicked her pieced title.

This month’s Spotlight Blog Hop is using the Kraft Color-Ready Borders by Close to My Heart. There are so many things you can do with these borders. You can ink them different colors, use them in different lengths, layer them, and use them in combination with other embellishments like sparkles, pearls, and ribbon.
The hop makes a full circle so if you are starting here just continue until you make your way back. If you have already started then you should be coming from Nikka’s Blog.
Supplies used are all Close to My Heart: Mistletoe Level 2 Paper Pack, Mistletoe Level 2 Assortment, Pearl Opaques, Color-Ready Kraft Borders, Old World Alphabet stamp set, New England Ivy Ink, and Cranberry Ink. Page Maps Sketch – October 2009
Hey sis, you were right – the Old World Alphabet is awesome! It’s one that I didn’t care for from the look but after using it I am in love! For my layout, I used Cranberry and New England Ivy inks and a sponge to color the Color-Ready Kraft Borders. I layered them and added pearls to accent.
