Kaleidoscope Sampler

My layout today is all about Father’s Day!  I love the versatility of this paper pack and teaming it with Pacifica cardstock has given a more masculine feel to the page.

CTMH Kaleidoscope Collection

The inspriatation for this layout came from page 69 of My Reflections How To Book.  Of course I modified a few things to make it my own.  The small rectangles were what drew my eye – a great way to use up scraps left in the Kaleidoscope paper pack after the first 6 pages I’d made and then I realized it went with the theme as pizzas have all sorts of different colours and textures on them!

This sticker from the Kaleidoscope Complements sums up my husband.  He is very special to us all.

The little word stickers in the Complements pack were a fun way to make the journalling a bit more interesting to look at.  The lines on the B&T paper made writing a breeze too.

Kaleidoscope WOTG, papers, assortment and complements are just perfect for your summer fun photos.  Place your order with your CTMH Consultant.

Standard

 

Blog BadgeWelcome to the December Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from Leah’s Blog you are in the right place. Simply read through this post and click on the link to the next blog at the end of it.  Keep reading and ‘hopping’ until you find yourself back where you started from.  Each blog will showcase a project featuring the Candlelight Garden (S1512) stamp set which is December’s Stamp of the Month.

S1512

This stamp set lends itself to watercolours perfectly and what better paper to blend with it than Kaleidoscope.  My layout today celebrates the relationship between my mother and my daughter.  It’s a very special bond they share.

This design is from Magic (9040), one of my favourite How To Books when  a special layout is required. You will find it on page 110.

The little heart on the stamp set is gorgeous.  Colour each one with watercolour pencils (3505) and cut them out.  The lagoon paper was dry embossed using the Stripe Embossing Folder (Z1960)

I wanted to create a space for Kathryn to journal her own thoughts about Nanny so created these 3 pockets on the page.  The Gypsy print paper is mounted on Thin 3D Foam Tape (Z2060) so the journal tag can slide into it.

Mount the bunch of flowers on Thick 3D Foam Tape (Z1151) so it sits over the pocket.

Candlelight Garden (S1512) is only available during December, 2015.  Full retail price is $27 but you can have this gorgeous set for just $7.50 when accompanied by a $75 order. Place your order with your CTMH Consultant.
