Today I am sharing a layout inspired by Make It From Your Heart Vol 1. I haven’t used this book for quite some time but it was worth re-visiting as there are many lovely layouts in it.

The bright colours in this collection perfectly complement beach photos. The workshop kit comes with alphabet stickers. They made a quick and easy title for the layout.

The cut apart PML cards provide interesting accents for your pages. There are 2 of each design.

On this one, I random stamped the cute cocktail glass from the Summer Fun Paper Doll stamp, added Clear Shimmer to the liquid, coloured the lemon and added a shadow to each glass with Shin Han marker. I freehand cut the sun from the second PML and inked it with a Lemon ink pad then layered it over the first PML using Thin 3D Dots.

S1806 A Bushel & a Peck CTMH Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop

Standard

Welcome to June’s Stamp of the Month Australasian Blog Hop. This is a circular hop. If you arrived from Megan’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 A Bushel & a Peck (S1806) stamp set which is June’s Stamp of the Month.

Close To My Heart's June Stamp of the Month, A Bushel & a Peck (S1806) can be purchased at www.shaunnarichards.closetomyheart.com.au during June 2018

The name of this stamp set brings back gorgeous memories of my parents teaching the song from Guys & Dolls to my kids. You can listen to Doris Day singing it here.

I will make a page to tell that story but couldn’t lay my hands on appropriate photos today.
I had a good look at the images on the stamps and went through the photos I needed to scrapbook and voila! The wind-swept leaves seemed to look like peacock feathers and I decided to make it work.

After playing on some scrap paper I came up with a stamp design I liked and was thrilled to discover the Central Park papers have this gorgeous sunburst print which complemented my design perfectly.

The layout is based on Pattern 4 from Make It From the Heart Vol 3. I needed to fit 22 photos and a long story on it, so had to call on my trusty Flip Flaps and Pocket Plus Protectors once again. You may spot one paper from the retired Prickly Pear collection. The colours in this pack are very similar to Central Park so I blended the two.

I stamped the ‘peacock feathers’ design onto white cardstock before cutting the title letters. The ‘as a’ sign is made using the ‘apple cider’ stamp in the set. It is highly unlikely I’ll ever need this phrase but that sign is absolutely gorgeous, so I used my Micro Tip scissors to cut the words out of the stamp. I’ve kept the words if I ever do need them but I’m happier now the sign can have anything written on it.

I love that every person who earned a fascinator is present on this one layout and that there was space to include the giggly photos too.
