Wander Scrapbooking Workshop Layouts

Today is the last day to order from both the July/August idea book and the 2020-21 core catalog!  I wanted to share two of the three fabulous layouts you can make with the Wander scrapbooking workshop.  They are pretty amazing, if I do say so myself!

Can you believe that I only needed my photos, some adhesive, and a journaling pen to create this incredible layout?  That "Let's Go" sentiment overlay is part of the kit!
Stickers and die cuts are also included in the workshop package. 
I added a photo place holder where a photo will go that has yet to get developed.

I can't believe how much fun this layout is!  It would normally be too "busy" for me, but I love how it worked with my photos and story!

On the bottom right corner, you're seeing a sneak peek at new product!  That's all I can say until tomorrow...

Be sure to check out our scrapbooking workshops.  You can make six amazing pages (three two-page layouts) with minimal extra supplies.  I love them and would love for you to try them for yourself!

Butterfly Backgrounds Thin Cuts Card

The Butterfly Backgrounds Thin Cuts is one of my favorite new products!  Here is the card that I made at my recent card class.

I cut two panels with the Thin Cuts die: Canary and Lilac.  (Both colors are retiring!)  I chose to layer the Canary on top of the Lilac, although I am sure it would be lovely the opposite way.  I used a Sage panel as my base layer.
Because I was using the light side of the Canary cardstock, when I popped out the tiny butterfly cuts, I flipped them over and adhered them dark side up to provide a little more contrast.  Hopefully in the close up photo you can see how I added clear shimmer brush to all of my Canary butterflies.

Every Bit of Wonderful Isabella Card

 Isabella is such a pretty paper pack, and I couldn't resist pairing it with one of my favorite stamp sets, the Operation Smile Every Bit of Wonderful stamp set, and one of my favorite Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4 sketches.

After stamping in Bluebird ink and fussy-cutting the flower, I colored it with clear and Lemonade shimmer brushes.  Adding some of the Isabella Acrylic pieces would have also been pretty!
The papers and stamp set are all retiring at the end of the month, so be sure to get yours soon!

More Tutti Frutti Summer Stamp of the Month Cards

 These two cards were featured in my August card class.  The first one may look familiar, because it's my second version of this card design.

I used more cardstock and less patterned paper, and I like the results even better.
Here's a close up of the Lemonade and Green Apple shimmer brush.

My second card uses my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers to color the fruit (plus a pop of Lemonade shimmer brush).

Do you see where I accented my card with doodling with my journaling pen?  (Shout out to Melissa Robinson for this card inspiration!)

Be sure to get your Tutti Frutti stamp of the month before the month ends!  Learn more HERE

H2H Challenges: Vacation/Staycation

Summer is definitely time for vacations, and whether you traveled near for a staycation or far for a vacation, Heart2Heart Challenges would love for your to share your trip!

My family had the incredible opportunity to RV out West this summer, so I decided to use this family picture of us at the Grand Canyon as the opening photo on the title page for our album.  I knew that the Wander collection was going to be the perfect suite for our trip!  I decided to use Pattern 2 from the new Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 5 as my inspiration.  Because my photo is horizontal rather than vertical, I made some of the paper strips wider to accommodate my change.  My embellishments are from the Wander sticker sheet and die cuts, plus wooden hearts and gold glitter gems.  (If you look closely, you'll see a sneak peek at a new product coming to you September 1!)

Be sure to join the H2H team and share your vacation/staycation projects with us before the end of the month!

August Technique Blog Hop: Anything Goes!

This month's technique hop is so fun because literally, anything goes!  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Darlys's blog.  From here, you'll visit Brandi's blog next.)

To create this butterfly card, I used my Butterfly Background thin cuts die to cut scraps from Ballerina, Peach, Canary, Sage, Glacier, and Lilac cardstock, and then fussy cut out the larger butterflies.  I arranged them on a White Daisy panel along with some of the tiny flowers, then layered this panel onto a piece of Pewter cardstock.  
Here's another view at an angle so you can see those beautiful dimensional butterflies.  I added a few white enamel dots to finish it off.  Don't be afraid to use your Thin Cuts in different ways!

Please leave a comment before hopping on over to Brandi's blog next to continue the hop.

August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Tutti Frutti

The August Close To My Heart stamp of the month, Tutti Frutti Summer, is so much fun!  Follow this blog hop for some totally terrific Tutti Frutti inspiration.  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Krista's blog.  From here, you'll visit the talented ScrappinKaty next.)  I ended up making three different cards for this blog hop to introduce the Tutti Frutti Summer set.

For my first card, I cut out squares from the Isabella collection "tile" paper and then placed them on the "trellis" background to create this card following a sketch from Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 5.  I stamped the sentiment in Bluebird ink and then colored the lemon with two of my TriBlend markers to match.  I inked the edges of the sentiment to help it pop a bit off the background, and placed a piece of Lemonade shimmer trim behind it.

My second card uses the same background from Isabella, but I added a Canary sun that I had cut with my Cricut and had in my scraps.  (By the way, Canary is retiring at the end of the month, so be sure to stock up on this buttery yellow before it's gone!)  I hope you like the Solar Flare Stickles Glitter Gel that I added to the sun!  To stamp my sentiment, I first inked it up in Bluebird then inked up the F, N, S, & N in black ink.  The lemon slices are a separate stamp, so they were easy to ink & stamp in Canary.  Here's a look at the stamp set so that you can see how the stamps work together.

My third card is a totally different clean & simple card using Candy Apple, Green Apple, Black, and White Daisy.  I love our clear My Acrylix stamps!  They make it easy to ink up a stamp in multiple colors prior to stamping.  (Here I used Candy Apple and Green Apple to create all of my strawberries.)
I grabbed one of my green TriBlend markers to accent the little designs by "you" and added two black enamel dots.  

Thanks for visiting!  Please let me know which card you like best before hopping over to ScrappinKaty's blog for more Tutti Frutti Summer fun!
