Homecoming Layouts

Catching up on scrapbooking, as if that will EVER happen.. With the world of iPhones, iPads, and digital cameras most photos go directly to social media and NEVER make it in a printed format let alone in  a scrapbook, at least in my home.

If this is you, think about taking those Digital Photos and creating FABULOUS Digital Layouts that will be printed out and mailed to you. You can do this by using Studio J, by Close to My Heart.

This Layout I am using the Pemberly Collection {Click to view larger}



This Layout uses the Ariana Collection {Click to view larger}

I am not sure which way I will go with these layouts, which one I will choose to print. I love the ease and options when using Studio J and for me this is how I accomplish creating scrapbook pages.

November is a Studio J Special! So check back on the  Blog in November and see what the New Promotion is that Close to My Heart is offering for Studio J and get those pages completed!

Thanks for stopping by the Blog today!


Fall Memories Layout

 Welcome to another reveal by Lynn's Everyday Ideas for Paper Crafter Anonymous.  I am playing with the papers from my recent haul. 


 This is the Pathfinding paper as well as a few of the Pathfinding Complements (chipboard stickers) and assortment. The banner and words are from Simple Stories.

  I loved this photo of my mom and son when he was about ten months old, but I didn't want to overwhelm it with patterns since the background was busy.  The orange leaf paper from the Pathfinding collection was just interesting enough.  
   
The heart banner behind the photo was actually the strip of paper you cut off the bottom of a 12x12 sheet.  If you've followed my blog lately, and I'd love if you did,  I've been loving finding ways to use these in layouts to extend the paper pack.

I hope you've enjoyed what I've done with the paper. I'd love to see what you've done with the collection if you purchased it.  Come back next week to see what else I've done with pack. Until then...Keep Scrapping


Wonderfully Blooming Watercolour Card

Hi - I have a really fun to make card to share with you today.  
I had a lot more fun watercolouring than I thought I would and really love how it looks with the "Hope" CTMH My Acrylix stamp.

I stamped the image onto watercolour paper with waterproof permanent ink and coloured with a waterbrush and watercolour paints. 
 I set it aside to dry and made the card using Black CTMH cardstock and CTMH My Reflections "Brushed" patterned paper.  I added two strips of coordinating ribbon.  
I then matted my watercoloured image onto cardstock and layered on to the card base using foam mount to give the card some dimension.

GIFT TAGS USING ART PHILOSOPHY


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...Welcome to another post from Me, Deirdre over at Glittered Roses.  I don't know about you, but when I start seeing my stores fill up with holiday items it just makes me want to start getting ready for Christmas, so to kick things off I made these cute little tags.  Right now all the rave from what I can see are stamps with coordinating dies.  If you anything like me I like to craft on a budget, so because the investment has been made take out your Cricut Machine and Art Philosophy cart

The sentiment is from Holiday Tags (D1560) stamp set

The sentiment is from For a Friend (D1542) stamp set
