Let me tell you about my crazy, easy process of scrapbooking CTMH style- LOVE IT! So this layout just started out with me looking at 7 photos and thinking hmmm how will I put this together. FIRST step- the CTMH layout books(LOVE THEM ALL- you've got to pick one or all of them up, click here to check them out on my online shopping page)! I took out the Magic book- looking through to see what layout with 7 pictures spoke to me. VOILA! It was the Shuffled Deck Layout on page 42. Second Step- paper....hmmm...what to use??? The turqoise in the pool pictures really spoke to me and I wanted to capture that and the fun polka dot turqoise paper in the Magnifique collection really caught my eye! So then I start pulling out paper and layering to see what combination looks the best to me. Thrid- I cut the pieces out according to the directions and then glued the puzzle together and there is the layout!
Of course if you know me I cannot leave paper ALONE! I have got to distress it!
So out came the Pacifica ink and I distressed all the pieces- yep all of them! Love that Distress to Paper Technique- simply swipe the edges of the paper in your ink pad! There is no right or wrong! Okay then I had to scissor distress some of the pics to give them interest. Thought that would really help draw your eye to the 4 2x2 pictures layed in a row- love this techqnique too!
And if you notice I even had my Cricut Chirping today! Boy is it ever fun to have your titles cut out! I simply sanded each individual letter too! And I found Liquid Glass to be a great adhesive for these skinny letters. I used the Jasmine Cartridge. :-)
And I am so happy with my layout and of course I love remembering these fun days!!!!
And I have been madly creating with this paper pack too...look at these FUN cards I made as well.....
I had fun with our Sparkles and Opaques that helped jazz these cards up and give them a little pop!
