Create bright, fun pages and cards with I Heart Us. Order your collection at www.shaunnarichards.closetomyheart.com.au before the end of April 2019

The I Heart Us  collection is available until the end of April 2019.  Buy it as a full kit or purchase individual items.

This rainbow of delight is an addictive collection!  The colours are bright but not bold – if that makes sense!  They tone in with so many photos.

Today I am sharing how you can adapt the Workshop Your Way, Standard & Deluxe, to your  photo needs.  These layouts are part of a travel album and we always take way too many photos because everything we see is new… and interesting… and different..and fun… and we may never visit the same place again.

First up is Layout 1 from the standard I Heart Us Workshop Your Way (G1171) The original design featured 5 photos but you can squeeze 10 on without making it look too crowded.

Layout 2 is also from the Standard I Heart Us Workshop Your Way (G1171).  Use the 5×7 photo mat on the left hand page as an anchor point for a group of smaller photos and make a double row of photos on the right hand page – voila!  5 photos turned into 11 and the lovely design still holds firm.

Finally, this stunner is from the Deluxe I Heart Us Workshop Your Way Kit (Z4508).  This woven effect is super easy to achieve using the rainbow paper from the pack.  One again, use the larger photo mat as an anchor for smaller photos.  The background wash can be created using the Sugarplum Shimmer Brush rather than watercolours.  Stamp your title in rainbow colours to tie it in with the papers. The instructions are for a single page but it’s easy to turn into a double by making a similar right hand page to the one shown from the standard kit.

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop.  This is a circular hop.  If you arrived from Kara’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 Heartfelt Sentiments (S1902) stamp set which is February’s Stamp of the Month.

S1902 Heartfelt Sentiments- February 2019's Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart. Order yours from www.shaunnarichards.ctmh.com.au during Feb 2019

This big bold stamp is perfect for scrapbookers like me. There are so many things that make my heart happy which I record in my albums.

Every summer a number of outdoor cinemas open in and around Perth, Western Australia.  The evenings here are balmy, perfect for a picnic dinner and a movie.  Our favourite movies are the ones shown as part of the International Film Festival.  Most are a little quirky, frequently in another language and always give insight into the way others live.  Each year we try to introduce new people to the pleasures of this pastime.

Record the things you love using Heart Happy papers(CC2193) and S1902 Heartfelt Sentiments- February 2019's Stamp of the Month from Close To My Heart. Order yours from www.shaunnarichards.ctmh.com.au during Feb 2019

I drew inspiration for this layout from Pattern 5 of Make It From Your Heart Vol 2.  The papers come from the gorgeous Heart Happy collection which is only available until the end of this month.

When stamping with large stamps (this one is about 6” x 4”) I prefer to dab ink onto the block then apply stamp as usual but flip the paper and block over to rub with my hand.  This helps ensure all the ink is applied to the paper.

Once stamped in Sapphire ink, I added colour using the Mint and Red Shimmer brushes.  The fine point of the brush is great for detailed stroke work.

I was thrilled to discover the Curlicue alphabet stamp set in my stash – it compliments the font used in the Heartfelt Sentiments title and perfectly fits the banner from the Heartfelt Sentiments.  Stamp one letter at a time so you can follow the curve of the banner. Begin with the middle letter and work out. The Curlicue set was part of a Cricut collection.

Heartfelt Sentiments  (S1902) is only available during February, 2019.  Full retail price is $29.50 but you can have this gorgeous set for just $8.25 when accompanied by an $82.50 order. Place your order with your Close To My Heart Consultant.
