Hello everyone! Amber here from www.sew-ink.blogspot.com

I'm back with another Back To School themed 12 x12 layout.

It's my third week creating with this super cute collection from Close To My Heart and I still can't get enough of it.
For this layout I used a four photo pattern from Close To My Hearts Imagine How To Program. This is one of my favorite patterns from the book, it's called Sweet Symphony and can be found on page 24. This is a two page pattern but I'm just using the left side of the pattern for my layout today.


I used one side of patterned paper and three different colored pieces of cardstock to create my background. After I had all of my pieces adhered to my white page front I added four white pieces of cardstock ( these are where my photos will go ), some embellishments, some alphabet stickers, and some black paint splatters. I really love these fun shaped chipboard pieces and just love any kind of quote bubble with a fabulous sentiment in it.


To create my title I used a little 3D arrow sticker from the Chalk It Up Assortment sheet and some black alphabet stickers from Glitz Designs to spell out "Class Act". You can find a list of all the supplies I used below along with a few detailed photos of this collection. Thanks for visiting!

Supplies: CTMH Cardstock- Lagoon , Sorbet, Flaxen, White Daisy / CTMH Paper Pack- Chalk It Up / Chipboard Embellishments- Chalk It Up Complements / 3D Arrow Sticker-Chalk It Up Assortment / CTMH How To Program- Imagine / Black Alphabet Stickers- Glitz Designs / Lummin' Arts Paint- Black

Next week I will be sharing one more layout I created with this super cute collection. You can find all of these awesome Close To My Heart products at Jessica's CTMH store.

Hey All!!

Amy here from PaisleysPlayhouse.blogspot.com

Boy do I have a treat for you today! I have been wanting to make on of these cards for a really long time.



When I saw that banner from Oodles of Doodles I knew that now was the time to try a surprise pop up card!



Here is the surprise...they are really easy to make!!! Don't you love how the banner just hangs over the edge of the little card? I do! You might also note that the cute little card is a "School Days" journal stamp from the stamp set School Years. I didn't want the journal part but I loved the size of the journal box and the adorable little diagonal strips along the side. So I masked it and used it sideways and added that adorable little bicycle built for two...two best friends that is!



The card lays flat and fits into a regular envelope for easy mailing like you see here.


And one more view from the side.



You can find tutorials for these all over the web but I got mine from Splitcoast Stampers.

I hope you enjoyed this little surprise card today.

Supplies*:
Cardstock - White Daisy (1385), Black (1386),Lagoon (X5762)
Pattern Paper - Chalk It Up (X7184B)
Inks - Black (Z2105), Lagoon (Z2195)
Stamps - Art Philosophy, Oodles of Doodles (B1449), School Years (D1556)
Cricut Cartridges - Artiste (Z1790)
Embellishments - Black Brads
*All supplies are from Close to my Heart unless otherwise noted.

You can find all of these awesome Close to my Heart products at Jessica's CTMH store. Don't forget to check out the rest of the design teams blogs throughout the week. You can find a link in the sidebar.

My Crush Monday with Corene-DT Member

Hello! Corene here from Corene's Creations! 

It's time for another DT project for Craftinandstampin'

I love how these two pages came together. I even made one of the pages a hidden pocket, to add more photos! My goal with my smash books, is to document as many photos as possible! 

If you've been following my smash book series, you will know I am using the Wildwood book from Close to my heart...which I love! I've also used the Wildwood Assortment pack for my journaling, and embellishment! I try to think out of the box when it comes to smashing, therefore I trimmed down my page on the right, and added my title to it, sandwiching it between two pages. 

I am a traditional scrapbooker at heart, but when I picked up a smash book for the first time, there was something very freeing about it! I like that there are no "rules" to it, and in turn, I have been able to smash more photos then ever! If you have not given smash books a chance, then I highly suggest it! Close to my heart has several books to choose from, and more coming soon...I hope you check them out! 

Here are some photos of the last two pages I completed:










I used a journaling card from the Wildwood Assortment pack, and the hidden pocket is in the top right page, where I was able to get another 8 photos placed! 

SUPPLIES:

Wildwood My Crush Smash book product# Z2001
Wildwood Assortment pack product# Z2040


Here's a start to finish video on these pages:
