Spruced Up

Hello and welcome aboard our “Spruced Up” Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. If you have arrived here from Passionate About Pages then you are in the right place. If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. 

Today I would like to share with you two creations which feature the Close To My Heart Featured collection “Spruced Up”.

This card was made using the Spruced Up Papers and the Spruced Up – Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cut Set. The bird was stamped in Expresso Exclusive Ink, the branch in New England Ivy Exclusive Ink, and the title in Intense Black Exclusive Ink. Inspiration for this card was taken from a card I saw created by another consultant, Anna Jarnagin.

Another using up scraps layout that I love to do. The papers were left overs after I’d made up a kit that we, as consultants, were given at a Catalogue Launch Event. The beauty of this layout is that you don’t need big pieces. None of the patterned papers that “go under” the photograph actually go under. I just had two pieces the same width and poke out each side – using my ruler to line them up. The little birds on branches were fussy cut from some of the paper.

This exclusive Spruced Up Collection is only available until the end of February, while stocks last. To wet your appetite here are some other projects from the CTMH Art Studio.

The Spruced Up Scrapbooking Workshop Kit can be yours for just $62.  Individual components can also be ordered from your CTMH consultant. Plus there is a Spruced Up Cardmaking Workshop Kit for $53. Along with stamp sets and more.

If you do not have a consultant please contact me or place an order here.

I’d love you to leave a comment before heading off to the next stop, ArtyMaz.

    I love how you fussy cut the birds on your layout, and I also love the way you stamped the bird onto the white cardstock to make it really stand out.
