The Sugar Rush collection is  from the Seasonal Expressions Jan-Apr 2017 Catalogue.  The soft hues and whimsical patterns are such fun to work with.  Today I’ve used Sugar Rush on a layout all about my quirky husband.  I snapped these photos whilst travelling in Germany over Christmas and New Year.  The photos highlight Mike’s personality so well and the Sugar Rush Scrapbooking Stamp Set (D1715) summed him up perfectly!  He really is the sprinkles on my ice cream of life!

This layout was created using leftovers after completing the Workshop Your Way layouts.  The strip on the left hand side is 4″ wide and each of the squares are 2″.  The co-ordinating stamp set lends itself to lots of themes.

Here are some close ups of the way I used the stamps, complements and sparkly dots on the layout.

Australasian Blog Hop – Magical Collection

Blog Badge

Welcome to the Australasian Magical 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 Magical Workshop Your Way Collection (G1108) from Close To My Heart.

 

My layout today is based on  one in the Reflections How To Book (9037) – page 70.  We attended a performance of Matilda the Musical the night before our Close To My Heart Convention in Melbourne.  It was a fabulous show and I wanted a reminder of it in my album.

I love the primary colours in this pack.  It is ideal for masculine pages, school themes and kids events.  The embellishments lend themselves to theme parks, Disney and party photos. It is also perfect for theatre outings! I just love that paper with the cameras on it.

I had already used the words from the sticker sheet on another project so for this layout I simply trimmed the backing sheet and lay the word frame on to contrasting paper.  A few of the coloured sequins either side gives the illusion of a border without the need for a solid piece of paper. The white twine also comes in the Workshop Your Way Kit.  So everything on this layout came from the one pack.  That makes it so easy to set up and clean up.

There are lots of die cuts in the Complements pack and I found several words that perfectly suited this amazing evening.  The PML cut apart sheet in the kit has several journal boxes – so fast and easy to use!

The Magical Workshop Your Way (G1108) kit is only available until the end of August.  Place your order with your Close To My Heart Consultant. If you don’t have a consultant, you can order online through my website

Sangria – Perfect for Black & White photos

Standard

I’ve been working with more of Mum & Dad’s old photos recently.  I can’t believe how gorgeous they look with the Sangria papers.

Sangria CollectionThis is my take one of the layouts I taught at yesterday’s Scrap Happy Class. It’s a great layout for old photos because I didn’t have to crop them – the background tells us so much about where we lived at the time. The layout also provides LOTS of room for journalling.

These photos were taken in Wau, New Guinea.  I have not had an opportunity to visit again since leaving as a 7 yr old and so my kids haven’t seen where I began life.  These photos help tell that story.

Sangria Complements(X7199C) have lots of family oriented titles which suited my theme perfectly.

View the Sangria collection here.  If you live in Perth, why don’t you come play at our Paper Picnic on October 24 – I’ll have lots more cool pages to show you.

Happy Scrappin’

Seaside Ink Free page

Standard

I have a friend who has a birthday on Anzac Day – how lucky her friends are never working on her birthday!  We joined her family to celebrate the occasion with a twilight sail.  It was a perfect Perth evening and such a happy time.  How fortuitous that Close To My Heart has the Seaside papers (X7192b) and Complements stickers (X7192c)!   They were perfect for my photos.

Twilight Sail

I based this layout on the Clean Dimension layout on pages 102-103 of the Cherish How To Book (9038)  I love how easy it is to create the basic design of the page using the book and then personalise it for your photos.  This book has 50 double pages layout designs and sells for just $20.
