 This is a sample of the layout we will be doing.  You choose the paper that would complement the photos of the theme you want.  This layout was inspired by one I found on the Creative Scrapbooking  Magazine blog.  I'm looking to put black and white winter photos on it.


Here's a close-up of one section.


Here's another version so you can see what you might do with this layout.  It's still needs embellishments which I will add when I know what I want to do with this page.

Seasonal Expressions 1 New Product Blog Hop

Oh, don't you just love a new idea book and all the possibilities for new projects?  Join us on today's blog hop to see what's new in the Seasonal Expressions 1 idea book from Close To My Heart.

If you have never participated in a blog hop before, it is just one big loop of creative ideas.  If you are coming from Krista's blog, you are on the right track.  If you are starting here, just look for the link at the end of my post and successive posts to see where to go next.

For my project I used the beautiful  new  Cut Above™ Layout Kit—Forever & Always kit.  It is designed to be used as a beginner's kit with a layout and several pocket pages.  I love the papers and die cuts from this kit and wanted to create my own pages using the materials from it.  

Here is what the original kit looks like - beautiful and easy to complete with the directions included.


See the kit supplies here .

The two double page layouts I designed use the papers, die cuts (which I just had to punch out), and Picture My Life cards and some of the complements from this kit.  I will save the large pocket pages included with it for another project.  I substituted pocket plus insert pages to augment each layout.

Page Protectors: Memory protectors - Pocket plus protectors - design 1

Your next stop on this hop is to see Judy Faye's choice of new product and her creativity.  If for some reason you get disconnected along the way, you can find all the participating consultants here.  

Be sure to visit everyone to see all the beautiful new products in the Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea book.  You can get your own copy of the new seasonal expressions by placing an order through your consultant or by contacting me.
