Sunday Paper: Blossom Layout

What a beautiful summer we've been having so far! I love the sunshine and warm days! 

It's the last Sunday of June and I have one more Blossom layout to share with you today.  This layout features a different look to the paper pack.  I found inspiration to begin this layout from a layout on Pinterest.  I scraplifted the circle clusters and then used similar colors to create the rest of my layout.  

I like that just by using a few different colors a layout from the same paper pack can have a look of its own.  This layout was created using kraft paper as the background, just one of the pattern pieces from the paper pack along with its zip strip and finished off with coordinating sunset and lagoon papers.  I was also able to use pieces that I still had remaining from my Blossom Compliments.  

Tiny tip: I used itty-bitty paper strips on many of my layouts this week.  SO easy and they add so much to the layout. By itty-bitty I mean they were all 1/8 inch.  Itty-bitty but depending on where they are place make a huge statement. 

Layout Featuring CTMH Blossom Papers and Compliments

Hurry and scoop up your own Blossom paper pack and coordinating embellishments while they are still available!  You can place your order on my Online Site or with me directly. 

Happy Crafting!

Sunday Paper: Blossom Layout

The vibrant color palette of Blossom papers are so bright and cheerful.  They just make me happy!  All that happy and colorful makes it the perfect paper for all your spring and summertime photos!  

Just when you're looking for that perfect layout to hold your more precious moments... how about this one?  This layout was created with Blossom Paper Pack, Snapshot Memories stamp set, Blossom Compliments, Coral Reef Sequins and Glacier Extra Thick Twine.  Depending on the pictures and sizes this could be a layout for 7 or more photos!

Here's a close up picture of the a few stamped images from Snapshot Memories.  This stamp set has 10 sweet sentiments and images.  See that washi tape?  It's a stamp! :)  I used my micro-tip scissors to rough-cut the edge to make it look more like it was torn tape.

This layout was created at my June Layout Workshop.  However, if you missed the workshop or the chance to order your own kit contact me today to ask me how you can get the cutting guide for this layout!

Sunday Paper: Blossom Card

Bright, cheerful fun summer colors! That's how awesome Blossom is! {You know I had to! :)}

This card was created using Blossom paper pack and Artfully Sent Just To Say... Stamp Set.  I embossed the white cardstock on the bottom of this card with my Quatrefoil Embossing Folder.  The tab and flowers were cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.

These flowers are seriously easier to make than they look.  You know this if you made them at my last card workshop!  You need a quilling tool (or a sharpened pencil will do), some Liquid Glass (aka Liquid GOLD as we like to call it around here because it's that's amazing!) and a bone folder.  You simply roll the flowers using a quilling tool and glue them together with your Liquid Gold.  When they are dry which takes seconds I use my bone folder to feather bend the petals how I like.  Use a dab more of that Liquid Gold to adhere them to your project... guarantee they won't fly away in the wind!  I jazzed up the center of the flowers with my Stickles.

My absolute favorite part of this paper pack one of the zip strips!  The colorful diagonal strip in the card is a zip strip that is part of one of the pattern pieces in this paper pack.

Have you had a chance to get your hands on the Blossom paper pack yet?  I love the color palette this paper pack offers.

Blossom is the paper pack of the month on the larger CTMH team I'm part and so you'll find some awesome Blossom inspiration here this month as well in my workshops!

If you're ready to play with this gorgeous paper pack hop on over to my Online Site today. Don't forget to check out the compliments, assortment and  WOTG while you're there.

This reminds me... I better stash a couple ones so we're ready when the Tweet Truck drives through our neighborhood again!  You can hear the music from the truck and it gets louder as the truck gets closer but somehow it still seems to sneak up on us and it's almost sheer panic when we can't find or get to our cash fast enough! :) Everyone (except our middle child) LOVES ice cream!
