CTMH Thin Cuts Australasian Blog Hop

I am so in love with Thin Cuts dies and their matching stamp sets.  No more fussy cutting with these stamps!  Because the dies save time I find I am using the stamps more.

This layout was inspired by pp104-105 of the Cherish How To Book.  It’s a layout we were challenged to use in a team virtual crop this month.  The small squares were the perfect place to showcase the Carnival Fun stamps and Thin Cuts.

Best Day - Zoe Workshop on the Go

sept-2-pages-page-007
I love this layout from the Zoe Workshop on the Go.  It provides a big canvas for photo placement.  The layout comes from the Magic How To Book (9040).  It's called One Way Mirror.

These photos were taken when we were in Hawaii for the Close To My Heart Incentive Trip.  80 of us took a sunset cruise and got to watch the lights come on in Waikiki.  Everything had a lovely pink glow.  When we looked out the other side of the boat, the sun was putting on a show for us.

Bunting Title Scrapbook Layout

CASEing layouts is one of my favourite pass times! Why strain my brain when someone else has done a fine job?  What's CASEing you ask?  C.A.S.E stands for 'Copy And Share Everything'.  Whenever you copy someone else's layout, you are CASEing it.

Giggles & Grins - workshop fun

sept-2-pages-page-007
One of the things I love about being a leader with Close To My Heart is sharing in the journeys of consultants in my team.  This page brings back lovely memories of a fun filled day in a wheatbelt town creating with 3 Dazzlers (my team is know as the Dazzling Duchesses) and some of their customers. Mike was my travel buddy and he spent the day editing our photos rather than page making.

I love using the Reflections How To Book to plan my pages I love using the Reflections How To Book to plan my pages

Hopscotch Happy Birthday

sept-2-pages-page-007
This fun layout came from page 36 of the Reflections How To Book.  I love that the layouts in this book have very simple designs you can dress up.

Feb blogs 8x4 - Page 002

The Outdoor Denim strips have been scored using the Scoreboard and then sanded to expose a little of the white core.  This adds great texture.  The Hopscotch papers were perfect for my photos and the little concentric circles stamp from the WOTG kit added a nice accent to my Colonial White circles behind the title. How pretty does the NEW Blue Shimmer …
