Dreamin’ Big – Great golfing moments


This layout follows the one I shared on March 15.  I love that my daughter, her beau, my niece & nephew and my sister and her husband are all very happy to ham it up for the camera!

The layout was created using Dreamin’ Big papers(X7218D) and complements (X7218C).  It came together very quickly and features 11 photos – getting lots of snaps on my pages is important to me!

The stickers from the complements make perfect little journal boxes.  I had already told the main story for this event on the previous layout so a simple caption was all this one needed.

Rather than mounting the photos I chose to distress the edges using Close To My Heart’s Edge Distresser (Z1297)  You just run this gadget along the edge of your photo and it textures it for you.

The title cluster was created with the left over stickers on the Complements sheet.  Using a large sticker as the anchor point draws your eye and 3 smaller elements positioned in a triangular formation are pleasing to the eye.  The title letters were left over from my Welcome Wreath I made in January.

Dreamin Big WYW Kit

The Dreamin’ Big collection is  from the Seasonal Expressions Jan-Apr 2017 Catalogue.  Once you begin creating with this collection you will never want to stop!  The colours just seem to go with everything you have in your photos.

Today I’ve used Dreamin’ Big on a layout featuring a great sporting moment in my life.  If you know me well, you know I can’t throw and catch, I don’t like to get sweaty and watching sport just bores me senseless BUT I do like to be a bit silly and I love my family more than anything .  So, here we are playing mini golf on a ship!  It was girls versus boys and the girls won.  Imagine everyone’s surprise when it was discovered I was the overall winner!!!  This moment was definitely worth preserving in an album 🙂

This layout was created using leftovers after completing the Workshop Your Way layouts.  Mounting the photos on Daisy White cardstock meant I only needed small pieces of the dotty paper above and below them.

To create the golf ball you will need the Confetti Embossing Folder (Z3118), Whisper Ink (Z2872) and the Basic Circle Thin Cuts (Z3318).  Dab the whisper ink pad over the raised dots inside the embossing folder BEFORE you place the paper in it.  When you run it through your embossing machine the ink will transfer to the paper and look like the dimples on a golf ball.  The Basic Circle Thin Cuts cut solid circles in a choice of 2 1/2″, 2″, 1 1/2″ or 1″.  They are on special this month along with all our other Thin Cuts – 25% off!

The Dreamin Big Workshop Your Way  (G1121) kit is only available until the end of April. Place your order with your Close To My Heart Consultant. If you don’t have a consultant, you can order online through my website .
