True Love Scrapbook Layouts

True Love Scrapbook Layouts

I'm trying to catch up with posting my scrapbooking layouts from the current Seasonal 2 Idea book before it retires August 31.  

I've already hosted the workshop for these layouts, but if you're interested, papers and complements can still be ordered until August 31, 2019 - or while supplies last.  I have a cutting guide available for purchase.

The first 3 layouts were designed by Madeline Dunster for CTMH.  I made a few minor changes to some of her designs.  The last 3 layouts are my designs.

You can find the True Love Papers, coordinating cardstock and complements on my website.

July Stamp of the Month Blog hop - Bear Hugs


Glad you could join us today!  A blog hop is just one big loop of fun and creative ideas. 

If you are coming from Darlys' blog, you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Becca's blog at the end of my post.  Each blog you visit will feature a link to continue following the hop. If you get disconnected somewhere along the way, you can find a complete list of blog hop participants here.

This month's stamp set, Bear Hugs, features 17 stamps that are  great for card making, scrapbook pages, and lots of other fun paper crafting projects. I always love the blog hops to see the many wonderful ideas other consultants come up with.

This stamp set is available only through the month of July.  After seeing all the great ideas in this blog hop, you're going to want to add this to your stamp collection.  You can purchase this set for $18.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant or find it here.

For this project I used papers from the Into the Wild paper pack, along with
Mink (light and dark side), Sapphire, and New England Ivy cardstock 
to create a two page scrapbook layout.

Here's a closer look at the stamping on this layout.  I used the CTMH Simply Said Alphabet set along with the Stamp of the Month.  Flowers and other images 
were colored in with ShinHan markers.

Thanks for stopping by today.  

Join me as we hop on to see the creative ideas using this stamp set on 

Be sure to visit the other consultants who have joined in on this
 blog hop for lots of inspiration.

If for some reason, you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of participating consultants on Melinda's blog to get back on track.
