Magic Monday Layouts -- Week 9

Magic monday Layouts
This week I am back to scrapbook layouts that I love!
This layout was done using the CTMH paper Miracle. It was a special that they were doing and I couldn't resist the cute layouts.
This cute layout features my brother and his kids. I love the colors that are used. A nice subtle combo of blue and green and cream.
As an extra cool bonus I made the photos on the right side do a cool thing. See?

The photos are in "flip-flaps" to make even more spots for photos. I cut a slit in the 12x12 page protector and adhered the flip flaps onto the page through the slit. I could have just stuck the flip flaps onto the outside of the page protector and not cut at all. You can choose how you want to do that.
If you want to add photos to your layout without adding clutter to the look try adding flip-flaps from CTMH. They are pretty awesome!

Using Stella Papers From Jeanette Lynton's blog!

Today’s spotlight comes from another wonderful Close To My Heart Consultant. Vicki Wizniuk, from Charlie Lake, British Columbia, fell in love all over again with the wonderful products from the Spring/Summer 2012 Idea Book. She said her heart has been stolen by Stella’s sweet, fresh, and funky papers; take a look at the beautiful artwork she did:
Wouldn’t you love to be on the receiving end of this gorgeous gift bag? I love how the cut-out piece from the handle turns into a perfectly complimentary flap. You’ll recognize the flourish from The Best Things stamp set and those fresh flowers from the Paradise Paper flowers really liven this up. To top it off, Vicki pleated some Lagoon cardstock to line the inside edge of the bag.
As if the bag was not gift enough, Vicki also made a 3” x 3” card to go along with it, using a pattern from Wishes. She also used many of the same products to tie the two items together. Did you notice the faux stitching she added in using her Chocolate marker? She used her ruler to keep the lines straight and then pierced holes every ¼” using the piercing tool.

Magic Monday Layout- Week 8

Magic Monday Layout; a super fun way to feature different layouts I have made or fall in love with.
This layout is a favorite because it's just too cute!!! I plan to be making some of these very soon.
I love the distressing, the brad drawer handles, the stuff coming out of the drawers and the tea set! I don't know what I DON'T like about this card! After I do one I'll do a tutorial on it. Keep looking back to see how I do it!

I think I'm getting a sinus infection so I am a day late this week. I almost got this done on Monday this time! I hope you find some inspiration out of this card. I know I have!
Happy Crafting!
