Is That Spelled Right?

Do you ever look at a word too long and start to wonder if it's spelled right? I'm preparing scrapbook pages using Close To My Heart's Sarita collection and when I stamped this word I started second guessing myself.

Check back for the finished Sarita layout soon!

Close To My Heart Laughing Lola Workshop on the Go

For our September Playgroup we are creating 2 two-page layouts featuring Laughing Lola workshop-on-the-go (Item G1065) from Close To My Heart. I think these photos of my little ballerina work well with this paper.  The workshop includes a coordinating assortment of gems and satin paperclip bows as well as black hemp and a schnazzy stamp set.  I used the shiny sequins and buttons included in the black mini medley accents (Item Z1865). 
Layout #2 from Make It From Your Heart Vol. 2, pg. 8
Cricut cut is from Artiste, Card 11"
Optional Layout you can create with your left over paper, plus one black cardstock.

Close To My Heart Artbooking Mini Book with Dream Pop

As promised in my newsletter, here are pics of my recently completed minibook I created using Close To My Heart's newest Cricut cartridge, ARTBOOKING.  The Cricut Craftroom software made cutting all the pieces a lot easier to manage.  I used the Dream Pop paper kit which was the promotion during National Scrapbooking Month last May.  I also added a few extra colors of cardstock and inks: Juniper, Creme Brulee, Outdoor Denim, New England Ivy, Whisper, and Colonial White.  The pattern was provided by CTMH at Convention.  I used Distressed Backgrounds stamp set (D1544), but you could also use Geometric Backgrounds (D1559).  Add a little washi tape and bakers twine, and voila!  I love how it turned out.  Now to fill it with photos.

Have a memorable day,
