Baby Cakes Layout

I wanted to showcase the new Artbooking Cricut Cartridge.  I used the paper from CTMH called Baby Cakes.  This paper can be easily used for baby layouts but I wanted to show the versatility of this paper, by using it for school layouts.  This is Trevor's advancement pictures.

Canvas Art From Close to my Heart

This canvas kit is available this month for 50% off this month, while supplies last.  There is enough supplies of bling and dimential elements, to make two kits.  That is just what I did.
I purchased a 12X12 canvas and made another with the left over elements of the kit.  So what do you think, not only is it half price but I got 2 for the half price of one.  (Does that make sense?)

Tommy 4th Layout

This is our layout that will be for our class this month.  I used the Tommy paper packet from Close to my Heart, which is a nautical theme, but I chose to create a 4th of July theme.  I think it worked so that you don't even know that maybe you could be on a cruise or in the water somewhere exciting.  Class will be Thursday July 18th.  This 2 page layout is only $10, let me know if you want a kit before Wednesday the 17th.  Email me at

Display Tray

I was excited to finally get my hands on Close to my Heart's display tray.  The paper packet, For Always, is such a good all around paper and looks great with it.  Each little cubbie can  be embellished as you like.

Chantilly Layout

I really enjoyed this cute girly paper packet from Close to my Heart with fun coordinating fabric.  I wish you could see the other two fabrics that go with Chantilly.  I know go Here  I may need to take another that has the pictures of  Boyd's mother and sisters. I thank Karen Pederson for the inspiration.

Later Sk8ter, I am Diggn it!

I can't tell you how much I love this cool paper from CTMH.  I can see how versatile it is. It can be used with swimming, sports pictures and even with flowers it can become girly.

Crusin by Studio J

Studio J by Close to my Heart offers the fun paper packet called Crusin.  I needed to finish our family vacation that I started with Crusin paper and since they no longer offer it, Studio J has the digital form. I even created my own paper by using stickers.  The circle with the "jacks" like images I made with the stickers.

Crusin meets Dakota

  I have always wanted to make the layout that was in the catalog a year ago. I thought these to paper packets from Close to my Heart went well together. My goal was to use the Artiste cartridge and showcase it's versatility.   My title is huge on this page, It says "Traveling to Yellowstone".  I used the traffic signs as flags for the title, then I used the gears to show that gears are a sign of moving, therefore the title traveling. I originally used Crusin paper for my pages of our vacation to Wyoming and Yellowstone.
