Celebrate Today

Hello and welcome aboard our “Celebrate Today” 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 a creation which features Close To My Heart’s Featured collection “Celebrate Today”. This project is another mixed media special.

Using predominately cardstock and a few highlight pieces of Celebrate Today papers, the sticker sheet and some Julep Shimmer Trim. The background was created by scrunching up some cellophane wrap from a product packaging and dipping this into some ink and water mixed. I then dabbed the mix onto the background. I used three different colours. Then I mixed some texture paste with ink to colour it and using a hexagon stencil I scrapped texture paste in a few places. Once dry I added the hexagon stamping randomly in both first and second generation. This helped to anchor the pattern to the page and make some of the colour pop more. I also added some of the star stickers too.

Behind the wooden arrow I stamped some splotches. The balloons were fussy cut from a Celebrate Today Picture My Life card. The shaker pocket is a 3×3 flip flap with sequins and stars, then sealed shut. You lift up to add journalling.

This layout will feature in my technique classes I’m running later in the month.

This second page was designed by Doreen Camalleri and we created this at a consultant training day. It utilities the matching stamp set. The tag has been cut from a PML card and the flowers are fussy cut from the main paper. My customers made this at my workshop earlier in the month.

This exclusive product is available until the end of the month while stocks last. Please contact your CTMH consultant to purchase. If you don’t have a consultant I’d love you to take a look on my website. Paper packs start from $13 and you can get both scrapbooking and cardmaking kits too.

I’d love you to leave a comment before heading off to Arty Maz.

    Love the shaker flip Flap & well I am a bit of a mixed media junkie & love seeing it incorporated as I do not always get the time to do it myself. Great layout. And your second layout is so bright & cherry.
