Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s National Scrapbook Month Paper Collection Happy Times
This paper is just so pretty it is hard to decide which way to use it and which bit to use so I have used it all! I decided to make a layout to share with my CTMH Team celebrating our crafty lives. I have no photos on it yet (I know not good) but now I have an excuse to take some snaps and a page is ready to go for our Convention Photos. I have used a couple of consultant only stamps as my Happy Times stamp has not yet arrived. I also used the paint brush stamp from the set we had ealrier in the year for National Stamping month. It is a favourite!
To construct the layout I cut a 3 1/2 inch strip from each paper and created 3 1/2 inch squares. I arranged these how I liked as evenly as I could on the Peacock background. This will be the background for a smattering of 3×3 photos. On the other side I used a 7 inch strip of the green/blue paper and made a 7 1/2 x 5/12 base ready for a 7 x 5 photo. I took a solid piece of the gold foil and some zip strip pieces to ground the photo and fussy cut some flowers from the floral print. (My stamp set has not arrived yet!) I have tucked in some loops from the new White Twine and used Gold Heat embossing for the sentiment. I finished it off with pink enamel gems. I decided it needed a border so I have used Gold foil tape. This design could also easily be replicated with Pomegranate as the background colour.
PS Sorry about the shine on the gold foil paper!
