Frosted Layout 2 "You melt my heart"

 This is the second layout in the Frosted Workshop On The Go. It's a wonderfully simple layout. Even tho its made with the Frosted paper thats a bit more snow themed this layout can be used for any time of year. Because we all have someone in our lives that melts our heart!


As I'm looking over the picture I realized I took this picture before I was finished with the 2nd page. The first circle with the banner says "Family" and there should be another circle on the second layout that says "Friends" that will go in the pink square.
I really like the addition of the Sparkle Flourishes. They add that sparkle that every layout needs :) And don't you just love the pink flowers that come with the Workshop On The Go!

Frosted "Simple Pleasures are Priceless Treasures"

The Frosted Workshop On The Go is just gorgeous! And sad to say pictures don't do it justice. It could be my picture taking abilities which are in desperate need of improving, but I never seem to have the time to spend learning new camera skills. But you really need to see this paper for yourself.



And beyond the paper I really do love the title stamps. Close To My Heart knows scrapbookers and they know that we need larger stamps for titles on our scrapbook layouts. And they coordinate with our Cricut cartridges so it makes titles really stand out. 


And you can use this title on so many different layouts. Change up the paper and the ink color and you have a very different title. So many options!
And look at that snowflake border cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge! I could have cut that with Glitter Paper and it would have been amazing! The Sparkle Flourishes do add a bit of bling to the page. Just the right amount of sparkle. 



Now it's off to make some fun memories in the snow with our puppy girl and to take lots of pictures.

National PaperCrafting Month Cloud Nine



 If you want to make cards the quick and easy way you need to try the National Papercrafting Month card kit. I'm in love with the shimmer trim and the ease that the cards come together. Just add adhesive and you have everything you need!

Moms Calender

I haven't had a chance to share the calender I made for my Mom for Christmas. I make her a scrapbook calender every year with pictures of all the grandkids and sometimes pictures of us kids or old black and white photos of her family. It's also a great way to use up all the scraps and old stickers from my scrapbook stash.
But this year was so very busy and we've spent alot of time in the hospital with Roger's Mom so I ran out of time quickly. I should have my scrappers license revoked, but I ordered Mom a calender online! I'm ashamed to even say it out loud when everyone knows I scrapbook. But life happens and it's more important to spend time with family and Mom's main focus is the pictures so she was very understanding. And I have to tell you it was super easy to click and drag those photos. I even used some pictures from family members  Facebook pages. The pics from Facebook are a bit blurry but their better than no pictures at all. 


 
 The pages are all faith based and the background pages have inspiring phrases or words on them. Each month has a special scripture. If I had more time I could have put each persons birthday on the calender but I ran out of time.


I would have rather had the time to make an actual scrapbook calender but I'm happy with how it turned out with the small amount of time it took.

ArtBooking Cricut Cartridge Layout

Life after Christmas is finally starting to get back to normal. Our daughter was home for 2 weeks over the holidays and we really enjoyed her visit. While she's been home I've taken a break from my Close To My Heart job and my blog. But I'm hoping to get things back to normal and hopefully blogging on a more regular basis for the new year. I have so many great layouts from last year that I haven't had time to post. This is a great one from the Idea Book using the ArtBooking Cricut Cartridge. I'm not sure who designed this layout but it was fun to make.




All the Cricut cuts were from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge and there were ALOT of cuts! And a good deal of stamping. And one of the things I love most about Close To My Heart exclusive Cricut cartridges is that our stamps coordinate with them. So you quickly cut out the design you want and then use the stamp set that coordinates with it.  Easy Peasey! I'm loving the texture that the backdrop gives the layout. The Cricut did a great job cutting all those shapes.
