A scrap challenge! Layout #10 - You're Beautiful

So last week one of my downline with Close To My Heart asked if I had any new scraps I could send her to show off at her upcoming crop. I told her I had bulk of the new sweetheart paper and agreed to send her some 4x6's of the paper and she would have to come up with a card with what I sent her. Well my curiosity got the best of me as I wanted to see if I could come up with a layout with what I was sending her. Within minutes I pulled the Kraft and cocoa scraps out to add to the 4x6 B&T's and had a layout! I knew right away what pictures would go with these fun colors.
Here's the finished product!
A close-up of the title using my new found favorite CTMH product, Eclectic Irresistables. I sponged the bottom of the letters with baby pink and then sponged the top with cotton candy to give the title a little detail. I have found the little "fuzz bumps" that are on the letters from where they were holding on to the base bother me, so to be rid of them I simply take my distressing sanding block and sand it down!
A close-up of the fun flower from the pink ribbon collection. I added a grosgrain ribbon bud to the middle as well as a pearl.
I have made a challenge to all of my downline - I have sent them all 4x6 scraps of this fun sweetheart paper and have asked them to see what kind of creations they can come up with. They can add more scraps, but must use the scraps I sent them. I will be posting their creations in the next few weeks so make sure and come back and check!

More Birthday wishes! -- Layout #9

A close up of the title done with the awesome new Eclectic Irresistibles Die-cuts. I LOVE these new beauties and am sure they will be on my next few orders!
I used Sophia Workshop on the go kit supplies to put this layout together along with the new awesome pink ribbon collection.
We have pretty much all our birthdays right at the beginning of the year in our family, which makes for lots of parties and cake. I used the same Magic layout I did for my little boys birthday layout, but this time I turned it upside down to fit my baby girls pictures. Once again I used more flip flaps to store more precious pictures of this fun day! This layout is PERFECT for adding more 4x6's.

The Sweetest Gift

I just received word that my twin brother and sister in law just welcomed their sweet baby girl into the world! I was so excited I had to make them a card using some new CTMH products - Kraft cardstock, Sweetheart B&T paper and the new Baby Love stamp set. Wish I was hand delivering it so I could see her myself!

2011 goal - layouts #7 and #8!

I've been working on my little guys album. I love how this tubtime layout turned out. I used paper from Notebook and Splendor as well as some Heavenly Blue cardstock. This layout is pretty much cased from one of the layouts from the Magic layout book - lovely Assistant layout. I loved how they had scalloped edges and the ribbon placement and my photos fit perfectly! Made for a fast layout!
Here is a layout I've had done for a couple of weeks. I turned it in for a corprate contest but haven't heard back so I'm assuming I didn't win. This layout is done using the fun new Fanfare paper packet and pennant alpha set. I hadn't scrapbooked my son's birthday pictures yet and as soon as I saw the new catalog with this awesome paper I knew they were the perfect pair!
I used flip flaps to hold more photos and my journaling.
