Berry Sweet Memories

As many of you know, we have some “Berry Sweet Memories” happening here with the loss of a good friend, a grandma, my Dad, and our beloved Ginger (pet for 15 years).  When playing with the Taste of Summer papers, I love how well they work with black cardstock.  It makes the colors just pop.  I was thinking to myself how appropriate – the darkness and sadness of death symbolized by the black, yet the bright colors are the sweet memories.  I titled the layout  “Berry Sweet Memories”, show the paradox of losing friends, family, and pets.

TOS LO1 WM

As our daughter struggles with these significant losses in our family, I found a great picture on FB about how death brings heartache but your memories are always yours.    I had SG choose her favorite pictures of people/Ginger to use for the layout.   For both SG and I, creating this layout helps process the loss and shows the one of the true value of scrapbooking – capturing and preserving memories forever.  It’s art therapy.  Using this picture and pictures she chose, we created the above layout.  I love how the colors in the papers essentially speak to the bitter sweetness of the situation, yet the pictures speak to the joy of the relationships and things she remembers.

TOS LO1 LS WMTOS LO1 RT WM

The inspiration for design came from the “Make It From Your Heart Volume 2”.  I cut out flowers from the Cricut using Art Philosophy.  I colored the yellow in with the ShinHan Touch Marker, used our Glue pen over the top, and dipped it in Prisma Glitter.  I cut the title “Berry Sweet Memories” out twice, from Artfully Sent, once in Hollyhock and once in Black.  I off-set them a touch to add depth/shadowing to the title.

TOS LO1 Collage

I inked the strawberries in Hollyhock ink and rolled the edges on the Ruby ink pad to give the strawberries, variations in color.  I colored the seeds with the ShinHan Touch Marker (yellow) and then added Liquid Glass for a 3D look and feel to them.  I used foam tape to pop up the strawberries.

Taste of Summer papers ($8.95) and exclusive stamp set ($17.950  are only available in May 2014, to celebrate National Scrapbooking Month!!  For those of you who purchase the papers and stamp set, I’ve created a Design Space file for the stamp set which includes mats for the images.  I will send you the file, free.  You can then save it to your Design space.   You will need to own the CTMH Artiste and Art Philosophy Collections to be able to use this file.  While the title, “Berry Sweet Memories” is not in the file matching the stamp set, I do have it saved separately and am happy to share it.  You will need to own the Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge to use it.   Don’t miss out on this great papers and stamp set.  There are no purchasing requirements to be able to buy these awesome products – Shop Now!

First Day

Using Cricut Artbooking and Chalk It Up paper this layout celebrates SG’s first day of school.  It’s such a special moment and it only happens once in a child’s life!

CIU First Day LO WM

It’s great when you can cut most of it out from the Cricut – it’s fast and simple yet the layout looks fantastic.  Paper piecing is not too difficult with the right tools.

CIU LS First Day LO WM

The title and ruler are cut from the Cricut Artbooking.  The embellishments are from the Chalk It Up Compliments (chipboard) and Assortment (foam stickers *love*).

CIU RS First Day LO WM

I love this page – lots of room for lots of pictures or embellishing or in my case both.  Here I could put several pictures from her first day, including one of her new teacher.  I was able to capture’s SG’s unsureness of going to school in the top left corner and work my way down to the bottom where you can see her smiling and having her a great time!  Creating a “Tic-Tac-Toe”, I cut out the pieces from the Cricut (bless the Cricut)!   Chalk It Up papers and embellishments are a must have for anyone with kids – all the way through college!  This layout is from the “Reflections” How To Book, a must-have fundamental scrapbooking idea book.  It’s a mix and match page book to create layouts and the foundation of CTMH’s scrapbooking How To Books.
