10 Things Part 1

I've been hoarding these 10 Things Pockets for quite some time now.  I finally decided it was time to use them.  

Since Mitchell is wearing super hero type pajamas in the picture I decided that I would use the retired Superhero paper and rub-ons.  I love how great they look.

I used the CTMH Cricut Artbooking cartridge to cut out the "10 things" title.

Stayed tuned for Part 2 of my 10 Things project.

April Team Brae-er Blog Hop - Spring Twist

Welcome to our monthly team Brae-er Blog Hop featuring a Spring Twist from Close to my Heart. If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, but if you get lost you can find your way by going to Chris' blog for a full list of participants. If you came from Krista's blog then you are in the right place!

We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

This month we are featuring projects that highlight products from both our Annual Inspirations Idea Book and the brand new Seasonal Expressions 2.  I fell in love with almost everything in the new SE2 right away.  My favourite thing is definately the Jackson workshop.

This isn't the workshop layout but one inspired by pinterest again.  I used the background B & T from Jackson.

The stamp set that comes with the workshop kit has some great images.  I decided to stamp the image directly on the paper but also on Goldrush cardstock.  You can find the cardstock in our Annual Inspirations.  

I adore the little enamel embellishments that come in the Jackson Assortment and are included in the workshop kit.  The other item that I added to this layout was some of the Complements stickers.

The last item that I added from the Annual Inspirations is the little white enamel stars.  They are coloured with the Shinhan twin touch markers.  I love that I can customize them as well as sequins to match my layout.

The next stop on the Hop is Chris. Thanks for hopping along with us - we hope we were able to inspire you to create your own projects from those that you have seen along the way.  Don't forget to hop along again next month when we will be previewing the National Scrapbooking month kit - Taste of Summer.

Pirate Party

I'm finally getting around to scrapbooking my son's birthdays from 2012.  Here is my littlest man, Nick at his fourth birthday party.  I had this Karen Foster kit in my stash to use just for this.

I used my Cricut to cut out the title and really liked the way it turned out. 

It wasn't really the same colours as the pictures but I think it still worked great.  Hope you enjoy.
