Chalk It Up!

The CTMH Chalk It Up paper pack and embellishments are perfect for Back To School photos!  But I discovered while playing with the papers that they will work for many other photos as well; school events, family gatherings, or just hanging out with friends.   The featured colors are Lagoon, Black, Sorbet, Flaxen, and White.  And the Lagoon and Black combo makes a strikingly bold layout, my favorite from this 10 page workshop.  Yep, five 2-page layouts!!  A couple of the layouts have several layers of matting, so I did add more cardstock than usual – but it is very much worth the extra cardstock.  And there’s even a little bit of stitching on one layout.  All in all, one of my favorite efforts.

Scaredy Cat - New CTMH Paper Pack

The new Annual Inspirations idea book from Close To My Heart was released on August 1st.  It has nine beautiful  new paper collections. 

 I started with the Scaredy Cat paper pack and embellishments because they are so are bright, colorful, and FUN!  Everything is easy to coordinate and will work great with all those Trick or Treat photos.  Colors are Black, Colonial White, Slate, Sunset, and Thistle.  See what you think...
