Welcome to the CTMH Australasian I Heart Us Blog Hop. This hop features the artwork of some talented women from across Australia and New Zealand.
If you arrived from Doreen’s blog you are in the right place. If this is your first time on a blog hop simply read on, enjoy my creations and maybe share your response in the comments. Then you click on the link at the end of this post and it will take you to the next blog and so on and so on. Easy and fun! Best part- you can see lots of different projects you can create with Close To My Heart’sI Heart Us collection! When you land back here, you are done and it’s time to hit the scrapbook room for some crafting fun.
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.
The I Heart Us collection is available to purchase from your Close To My Heart consultant. If you don’t have a consultant, you can order online through my website .You can also download the instructions for these layouts from the link in the online shop. A list of products used in my projects appears at the end of this post.
I’d love you to leave a comment for me before you go. Then click on the highlighted link and move on to Doris’s blog, Creative Inspirations, see the projects she has designed for you. I’m sure it will love it ‘cos she is so talented!
