National Stamping Month Blog Hop

Welcome to the National Stamping Month Blog Hop where we will be featuring the From the Heart products.  These products include a beautiful card kit and stamp set that can be used to make some gorgeous creations.  StampingMonthBadge If you have come here from Vickie ODell’s blog, you are on the right path! When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog.  This blog hop is designed to allow you to start here and work your way around. It’s simple, fun, and full of ideas using the From the Heart products.

If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog: http://ifyoublingit.blogspot.com/p/stamp-of-month-blog-hop-list.html.

During the month of September, I will be creating some simple projects using the From the Heart stamp set so make sure to visit often for more inspiration. As I roamed the internet for ideas, I saw that this stamp set was used often with brightly colored flowers and I wondered what it would look like using simple brown tones.  I decided to step outside the box and use our basic colors which resulted in this fall layout that features our Basics Fundamentals papers and inks.  I truly enjoy how it turned out. As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create this layout at the very bottom of this post.

NSMBasicsLayout
Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ White Daisy Cardstock, 1″ x 12″ B&T Paper, 1½” x 12″ B&T Paper, ¼” x 12 Espresso Cardstock, ½” x 12 Espresso Cardstock, 6″ x 2″ B&T Paper (Basic Fundamentals), (3) 2″ x 2″ B&T Paper (Basic Fundamentals), 6″ x 4″ Espresso Cardstock, 2″ x 2″ Nutmeg Cardstock

Techniques Used:
• I used all of the brown tones of the Basic Fundamentals paper pack.  You could change this by using all of the grey tones with a Black & White photo.
• After placing down the top and bottom paper and cardstock strips, I used a pencil to draw out the space where my photos and papers would be placed. This helped me to stamp the images on the corners without having to create a mask.  Some of my images where stamped partially inside the drawn rectangle to allow my papers to overlap the stamped images.
• The images were stamped using the From the Heart stamp set with Almond, Toffee, Espresso, and Nutmeg inks.  To create more depth, some of my images are stamped using second generation stamping allowing me to using the inks twice for the same image.


• The small heart was created using Nutmeg cardstock and our Basic Hearts Thin Cuts.  I took apart the White Burlap Ribbon and created two pieces of twine to tie across the heart.
• I always adding a little shine to my layouts, so I placed a strip of Rose Gold Foil tape across the base of the inner rectangle.  After looking at it longer, I might add some Rose Gold gems later.

Now “Hop” on over to Cat Nowak’s blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas!

Feel So Blessed SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the Feel So Blessed Stamp of the Month Blog Hop where we will be featuring the September Feel So Blessed stamp set. I have enjoyed using the sentiments of 2017SeptSOTM.jpggratitude on this stamp set for both cards and scrapbook pages and I know you will, too.   If you have come here from Kathy Burrows’ blog, you are on the right path! When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog.  This blog hop is designed to allow you to start here and work your way around.

If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog: http://ifyoublingit.blogspot.com/p/stamp-of-month-blog-hop-list.html.

During the month of September, I will be creating weekly projects using the Feel So Blessed  stamp set so make sure to visit often. This week, I have created an autumn themed layout with our New Fundamentals papers to express what I am truly grateful for. As always, I’ve included a list of the products used to create this project at the very bottom of this post.
FeelSoBlessedLayout

Paper Needed: (2) 12″ x 12″ Cardstock (Toffee), (15) 3″ x 3″ B&T Paper (Enchantment Fundamentals), 6″ x 8″ Cardstock (Nutmeg), 6″ x 4″ Cardstock (Nutmeg), 6″ x 6″ Cardstock (Toffee), 4″ x 4″ Saffron Cardstock, 4″ x 4″ Fern Cardstock, 3″ x 3″ Pomegranate Cardstock, 6″ x 6″ Gold Glitter Paper

Techniques Used on the Layout:
The Enchantment Fundamentals squares were adhered to the pages about 1½” from the top of the page.  I did not put paper behind the photo mats (I like to save when I can).

The Leaves were cut from Saffron, Fern, and Pomegranate cardstock using the You Are Here Cricut® cartridge.  I added texture to the leaves using our new Leaves Embossing folder that can be found in our Holiday Expressions catalog.


The Title was cut from Gold Glitter paper using the You Are Here Cricut® cartridge. You can view the Cricut® Design Space file here, but you must own the cartridge in order to cut out the images.  You can purchase this amazing You Are Here Cricut® cartridge bundle from my website.
FeelSoBlessedLayout_Title
 I used Nutmeg Ink to stamp the “For This”, “So Blessed” and number images onto Toffee cardstock.  I used our 3-D Foam Dots to attach the numbers to the journalling strips to create a list of the things I am grateful for.

You can continue through the blog hop and see more ideas from twenty-five other Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month’s Feel So Blessed stamp set and other great Close to My Heart products on their blogs.

Storybook Vintage Layout

July is almost over and time is running out to purchase this awesome stamp set.  Throughout the month, I have posted some simple projects you can make using the Storybook Alphabet acrylic stamp set.  This week, I have created a vintage layout for my heritage album using some of our Basics Cardstocks and Rustic Home Fundamentals.  The ENTIRE Basics color palette is retiring this month as well as all of our Fundamentals B&T papers. Make sure to visit my website and order your Basics cardstock, inks, and reinkers, as well as your Fundamentals Papers before they are gone FOREVER.

StorybookVintageLayout.jpg

You can easily make this to a school page for your child by simply changing the color palette to primary colors or by shading in the letters. As always, I have created a list of items used on this layout at the very bottom of this post.

Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ Cocoa Cardstock, 11½” x 11″ Cashmere Cardstock, 10″ x 5″ Sweet Leaf Cardstock, 7½” x 1″ B&T Paper (Basics Fundamentals), 8″ x 1″ B&T Paper (Basics Fundamentals)

Techniques Used on the Layout:
• The Storybook Alphabet letter stamps were placed randomly onto large 4″ x 5″ My Acrylix blocks, then stamped onto the background cardstock using Cocoa Ink.
StorybookVintageLayout_Block
• The edges were sponged with Cocoa Ink.  I also applied some Cocoa Ink with a sponge onto the letter background of the Sweet Leaf and Cashmere cardstock.
• The White Burlap Ribbon was attached using Micro Glue Dots.  The knot was tied separately, then adhered to the page with a Micro Glue Dot.
• The Rustic Fundamentals Vellum was attached using our Bonding Memories Glue Pen.  I applied the glue the full length of the vellum, allowed it to dry until it was tacky, then attached it the tie B&T paper strip.

The Storybook Alphabet stamp set is available until July 31st.

JackKitOfTheMonth

What does each kit include? Each kit includes everything your need to complete the layout shown.  I include pre-cut cardstock, designer Close to My Heart papers, embellishments, and any Cricut cuts or stamped images featured in the layout.  On my Kit of the Month page, I will include the list of items not included in the layout. For example, this month’s kit includes everything except the White photo mat.

What do I need to buy to complete the kit? In the description, I will include a list of products you will need to complete the kit.  Most of the time you will need basic supplies such as a paper trimmer, scissors, and adhesive.

Are there written or video instructions for each kit? I avoid the camera whenever possible, so the instructions are written for you. 🙂 Each set of Full-Color instructions include a photo of the layout, a layout guide with measurements for placement, and detailed instructions of how to assemble the layout.

What are the subscription options? I have three options available. Each one offers substantial savings and bonuses based on the subscription.

Relax with No Worries Layout

As you know, I enjoy each week’s Color My Heart Dare Challenge. They inspire me to try something new with a color palette I would not have likely chosen.  This week, we were challenged to use only Cashmere, Glacier, Lagoon, Sapphire, Whisper and White Daisy inks with the No Worries paper pack, so I chose to make a scrapbook layout for some fun summer vacation photos.

NoWorriesLayoutOne

This layout is one that we will be making in my upcoming No Worries Creative Club Workshop where you will learn how to use our inks to enhance your scrapbook pages. On this layout, I used our White Daisy Exclusive Ink Pad to add foam caps to the waves.  It really added dimension to the layout.  You can find a list of the remaining supplies I used to create this scrapbook page at the bottom of this post. Please feel free to ask questions about the layout, my upcoming workshop, and the products used on this layout. 

If you are one of my long-distance followers, you can purchase the Workshop Guide which includes a link to the Cricut Design Space file so that you can recreate this layout using our inks and sponging techniques.

Laugh Together Layout

I typically stick with very simple, muted layouts.  This probably stems from the fact that I am a mother of multiple boys, but this week I decided to make a lively scrapbook page for my only daughter.   For the weekly Color My Heart Dare challenge, I  use a variety of bright colors from the Whimsy Fundamentals along with the Live, Laugh, Love stamp set.  This stamp set is available for purchase for only $5.00 with a qualifying purchase from my website.   As always, I’ve included a list of the products I have used to create this layout at the very bottom of this post.

LaughTogetherLayoutTWO.jpg

Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ Cardstock (I used Juniper), 11½” x 11¾” Cardstock (I used White Daisy), 7″ x 5½” B&T Paper (I used Juniper), 7″ x 5½” B&T Paper (I used Juniper), 7″ x ¼” B&T Paper (I used Juniper), 1½” x 1½” B&T Paper (I used Canary), 4½” x 3″ B&T Paper (I used Glacier), 1¼” x 2¾” B&T Paper (I used Canary), ¼” x 3¾” B&T Paper (I used Juniper), ¼” x 3¼” B&T Paper (I used Canary), ¼” x 3″ B&T Paper (I used Glacier), 2½” Circle B&T Paper (I used Thistle), White Daisy Cardstock for Stamped Images

Slide1

Techniques Used on this Layout: 

  • I have a added a layout guide to show paper placement. If you click on the this link, you can see a larger photo with measurements.  All my scrapbook guides that I sell have photos like this to show placement and measurement.
  • The “Flower” images on the bottom left corner were done using theLaughTogetherLayout_Flower.jpg Live, Laugh. Love stamp set. I used Black Memento Ink to stamp the images, then used a Blending Pen with Glacier, Thistle, Canary, and Juniper ink to shade the images.
  • The layered “Flower & Leaf” images were created using the Live, Laugh. Love stamp set. I used Black Memento Ink to stamp the flowers, then used a Blending Pen with Thistle, Canary, and Juniper ink to shade the images. I cut out the flowers and leaves, layered them on top of each other, then adhered them to the layout with Thin 3D Foam Tape.
  • The “Laugh” title was created using the Live, Laugh. Love stamp set. I brushed Purple Watercolor paint onto some Watercolor Paper, then, after it was dry, stamped the “Laugh” image  using Black Memento Ink. I shaded in the flowers with a Silver Metallic Marker, then cut out each individual letter so that I could have the staggered look to my title.LaughTogetherLayout_Title.jpg

Flock Together Layout

The Flock Together Stamp of the Month can be used to create some fun scrapbook layouts. On this week’s project, I used the stamps to create a cute illustration at the bottom of the page to represent my family playing in the river.  The layout is simple and rustic and can be used for any type of outdoor photos.   I’ll be sharing the second half of this layout next week,  so be sure to visit.  At the very bottom of this post, I’ve included a list of the products I have used to create this layout.

FlockTogetherLayout_PG1.jpg

Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ Colonial White Cardstock, 12″ x 6″  B&T Paper (I used Enchantment Fundamentals),  12″ x ¾″ B&T Paper (I used Rustic Home Fundamentals), 7½” x 5½” Cardstock (I used Chocolate)

Here are a few techniques I used on this layout:

  • The illustration was created using the Flock Together stamp set.  I stamped the larger birds using Chocolate Ink, the baby birds using Desert Sand Ink, and the “River” using Sapphire ink.
  • The ‘Wood’ border was created by using a scallop border punch on a 12″ x ¾″ piece of Rustic Home Fundamentals.
  • The ribbon around the photo mat is a piece of jute ribbon from the Rustic Fundamentals Ribbon pack.  I cut the piece of ribbon in half to make it thinner, wrapped it around a 7¼” x 5¼” piece of Colonial White cardstock, then tied a knot.
  • The journalling strips are cut at ½” then placed randomly to the right of the photo.
  • The tab on to the left of the photo mat is a 3″ x ¾″ piece of Enchantment Fundamentals B&T paper.  I rounded the corners using a corner rounder to create the look of a tab which will be perfect to label the photo’s date or location.

Tea-rriffic Party Layout

The Tea-rriffic Stamp of the Month can be used to create some sweet scrapbook layouts.  On this week’s project, I used  the stamps to create a border and title, then used watercolors on the images.  The layout is bright and cheerful just like my daughter when she had her weekly tea parties. (Now I need to get those photos printed.)    At the very bottom of this post, I’ve included a list of the products I have used to create this layout.

TeaPartyLayout.png

Paper Needed: 12″ x 12″ Pixie Cardstock, 12″ x 10″ White Daisy Cardstock ,  12″ x 6″ Watercolor Paper, 12″ x 6″ Black Cardstock, 12″ x 3″ Crystal Blue Cardstock

teacupborder

Here are a few techniques I used on this layout:

  • The Pixie Cardstock background was splattered with White Watercolor Paint. I used a medium watercolor brush, lots of water, and tapped the brush to create splatters.
  • The Teacup Border was created by randomly stamping the “Teacup” and “Flower” images with Black Pigment Ink onto Watercolor Paper, then heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  I used Watercolor Paints on each of the images, then splattered Black Watercolor Paint onto the border with a medium watercolor brush. The image was hand-cut, placed onto Black Cardstock and hand-cut again to create the matting.
  • The photo mat was created by welding an Art Philosophy border onto the top and bottom of a 12″ x 4½” rectangle. TeaPartyLayoutTitle.jpg
  • The “Tea Party” title was created on Cricut Design Space using the layering and
    flattening techniques. I used a system font called Curls MT, so the file can’t be shared. I will be teaching this techniques to make titles like this at my summer Cricut classes.
