New CTMH Spring/Summer Product Preview: Sophia

The new Sophia papers from Close To My Heart are oh-so-girly and oh-so-pretty! I splurged on the Workshop on the Go kit that includes the adorable stamp set I used, the pink buttons, and the Waxy Flax. The Sophia papers were the perfect match to Ansley's spring portraits last year.

This sketch is based on the "Hat Trick" sketch from Magic. I didn't follow it exactly because my pictures weren't the same size as those recommended in the guide, but the design worked well (in my opinion). That is one the great things about our how-to books: you can use them exactly as is or you can modify them to suit your taste.
To create her name, I used the new 2" scallop circle punch and the 1-1/4" circle punch. (I also snuck in another layer with my "contraband" 1-1/2" scallop circle punch.) I have found that it is easier to stamp first and then punch out the stamped image (versus punching out a shape first and then trying to stamp on the shape). The alphabet set I used is the new Bohemian alphabet, which also includes a set of numbers and punctuation.

All the little details are from the Workshop on the Go kit, plus some extra bling and some of the new pink ribbon collection.

The best part is that Ansley loves her layout!

  5. This layout looks great in the photos but it is even more beautiful "in person" - I got to see it today. LOVE this paper and it is the perfect match for these pictures.
