National Scrapbooking Month Layouts
This fabulous paperpack with 12 patterned papers (6 twice) is yours this month only for $8.95 through Close to My Heart. I used the orange paper and added Outdoor Denim cardstock along with the May Stamp of the Month to create this layout to use for our recent trip to Florida and orange picking!
The May stamp of the month is available for only $5 with any $50 purchase or $17.95 on it's own.
The Jack paper pack in the current Seasonal Expression is perfect for all your camping and outdoor pictures. I also used the Flower Market and Artistry Cricut Cartridges from Close to My Heart. The "Think Happy..." from the Flower Market cartridge is cut at 4" and the trees are from the Artistry cartridge cut between 3" and 4".
I love to quilt and play with paper and fabric. However, sewing is stressful for me if I have to do anything other than a straight line in a quilt block! I have a great friend though who has a birthday coming up and she is a cake decorator and I believe all good cake decorators need an apron. So on to Pintrest I went to find the perfect apron pattern. I immediately fell in love with the Krista Apron and set out to recreate it.
My first stop was to The Top Stitch quilt store in Spokane, Washington. I found the perfect dot and solid fabric. I did learn I need to make more aprons so they go quicker and I get better on my ruffles. I also need to find a new model because I am to short and squaty!
But today I will have to do, so here is my finished apron:
I am having so much fun playing with the versatile Zoe paper packet from Close to My Heart. I saw this cute mini-album created by Australian CTMH consultant Doreen Watkins. This great mini-album would be perfect for a mom going back to work or a grandma to show off her grandchildren!
To create this great mini-album I used one sheet of white daisy cardstock and then left over pieces I had from creating layouts. This would be perfect in any of the CTMH paper packets.
