Moonlight Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us on our “Take a Walk in the Moonlight” Blog Hop.  We have a fabulous path for you to follow as you take your walk in the moonlight with us as we feature Close to My Heart’s Moonlight paper pack.

If you are coming from Bethany’s Blog, you’re in the right place.  If this is your first stop, you can go to the beginning at Lucy’s blog.

Here’s my layout:

Supplies used are all Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted: Moonlight Paper Packet, Damask stamp set (retired), Smokey Plum ink, Opaque  Pearl Flourishes, Opaque Pearls, and Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge.

I used a Becky Fleck sketch for this one.  Who would have thought that these were “Halloween” papers?!  I just love Close to My Heart’s double-sided B&T Duos Paper Packs!  The strip is cut from the top of the paper.  This is a great feature that they’ve added over the last year, in addition to the paper being a thicker, cardstock quality.  To overlap the pearl flourish from one page to the next, I first cut it on the transfer sheet, then applied each section, matching up the one on the second page with the one already attached on the first page.  The photo corners are stamped with the same damask stamp that is on the page.  I cut the squares in half to create the triangles for corners.

The next stop on your moonlight walk is Stephanie’s Blog.

Here is the list of all the talented consultants who will lead you down the moonlight path:



Girl Scout Camp Layout

Supplies used: K & Company Girl Scout paper stack, K & Company Clearly Yours, All My Memories Wisdom Stickers – Stone, and K & Company Grand Adhesions.  Sketch by Becky Fleck from April 2006.

Well, I like this better than the last Girl Scout layout I did.  Maybe it’s because I used a sketch.  Then again, I think it’s just because I have this Girl Scout paper and embellishments that I want to use up and they just don’t go with my photos and I don’t want to reprint in black and white or sepia.  We’ll see how the next ones I have planned go.  I’m going to have to remember how I like the row of knotted ribbon when I decide to choose ribbon as my stash buster. 🙂

White Background

Now that I have discovered the beauty of patterned paper I rarely use a solid-colored background.  However, the white background for this layout seemed to be perfect.  I traced the circle onto my paper using a plate (any circular item will work).  Then I simply added all the prima flowers with brad centers.  You may want to add an additional page to the back to cover all the brads so they don’t catch on the opposite page when you put it in your scrapbook.  Based on a sketch by Becky Fleck.
