Documented Blog Hop

Welcome to our Featured Paper Blog Hop! We will be showcasing items from our Documented Paper Pack with various projects created by talented Close To My Heart Consultants. If you are visiting from Haley’s blog, then you are on the right track!

This paper pack is my FAVORITE one in this Idea Book! I love the floral print and the colors in it! For this Blog Hop, I completed 4 cards to share. I used patterns from Make It From Your Heart, Volume 4. I love to make cards to unwind and relax, but am sometimes too overwhelmed at the thought of forming creative ideas on my own. That’s why I LOVE this How-To book–I can still create and have fun, but don’t have to do any thinking about how to most efficiently use paper. 🙂

Central Park Blog Hop

Welcome to our Featured Paper Blog Hop! We will be showcasing items from our Central Park Paper Pack with various projects created by talented Close To My Heart Consultants. If you are visiting from Haley’s blog, then you are on the right track!

When I saw this paper packet and the hot air balloons featured in it, I knew I had to create a layout with it! One of our family’s favorite things to do during the summer is to go to the Sonoma County Hot Air Balloon Classic. We leave super early in the morning (like 2 am!) and drive to see the balloons launch. It’s an amazing experience–the balloons are blown up right before you and launched. They do a Dawn Patrol Launch also, where the balloons “glow” because you can see the fire when it’s still dark outside. Later in the morning, more balloons are launched. It’s an awesome experience and our whole family LOVES it!

I wanted this layout to be very minimalist, because I wanted the pictures to be the main focus. I loved the sunburst background paper and thought it was a perfect base for the layout. I let the pictures steal the show and added just a few embellishments.

I used layout Pattern 24 from Make it From Your Heart Volume 3 and Workshops Your Way Central Park Scrapbooking Kit for this project.

Stargazer Blog Hop

Welcome to our Featured Paper Blog Hop! We will be showcasing items from our Stargazer Paper Pack with various projects created by talented Close To My Heart Consultants. If you are visiting from Carol’s blog, then you are on the right track!

For my project, I created two cards. I LOVE this Paper pack! The colors are so fun and I love the different patterns.

I created the first card while my kids were playing at the park. I love prepping all the pieces for my cards and bringing the project along to work on when I have free time.

Here is the finished card:

For my second card, I sponged the circle in the background because I wanted it to look like space. I used Pacifica and Sapphire inks and varied in the intensity of the color so it was more splotchy and space like.

I also stamped the sentiment inside the card.

Supplies used (for both projects):

G1147 Workshops Your Way Stargazer Scrapbooking Kit

Z4157 Stargazer Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts (on sale during the month of March!)
