Be Happy with Live Beautifully

Be Happy with Live Beautifully

Here’s the first layout of this wonderful workshop that you can get free when you order $25.00 or more on my website!  A list of the supplies is available on my website here. The pictures don’t really do the layout justice.

I made my pages with gold and silver glitter paper because, initially, I only had the silver glitter paper.  When I got the gold glitter paper in, I decided to add some extra hearts in. In the end, I like having a combo instead.  The CTMH heart dies make it really easy to create different sized hearts with the same shape (hearts can have different shapes). Size and layering are important in having this work well.

The title of the pages comes from the My Girl set of compliments:

This is really a fun set of compliments.  Full of goodness and sayings you can use beyond a girl.  I think this is a great graduation saying.  What kid at high school graduation isn’t happy, to at least be done with school, and has big dreams?  SG is going to be testing for her yellow belt and is super excited.  I can’t wait to capture her face when she passes her test!

 

Here’s the 2nd page:

More hearts and and titles with fun glitter embellishments.  The black paper with the white rose outline looks really good on the black cardstock.  I like how the papers pop on black.  Don’t forget to use your zip strips!  Little borders can add a lot to the page.

Dream with NSM

Dream with NSM

Dream is the 2nd layout with the National Scrapbooking Month (NSM).  It might be my favorite, I’ve not decided.

I just love these butterflies in the kit.  They are so beautiful and when you roll the wings just a bit, you create dimension.  It looks amazing.

The title is part of the kit along with the butterflies.  Creating little clusters of butterflies draw your attention to the title.  I like the way the “D” is in a different color than the rest of the letters and all of the letters have different colors/textures in them

The black background with the rose pattern in white on it is stunning.  It’s very elegant would be amazing as a wedding background for formal pictures.  It sets off the butterflies.

On more picture of the butterflies.  You can see how I’ve rolled the wing of the grey and black butterflies and then layered them on top of each other to create the cluster and dimension.

Don’t forget you can get this kit for FREE when you join CTMH this month!

Smile for NSM

Smile for NSM

“Smile” is the first layout from the Live Beautifully Cut Above kit.  This kit is $44.95 with a lot of the cutting done for you.  This will make a fantastic present for anyone you know getting married.   What a great gift to wrap up an album with finished layouts for the lucky couple to ad pictures to.

Look at how beautiful the gold “smile” is on the page.  “Being happy never goes out of style”.  Your journal block is already there for you.  All you have to do is piece together the the center of the layout. The assembly of the kit should take about an hour without interruptions.

The elegance of this layout can be used to feature a wedding or prom or you can use when you’ve captured some amazing smiles.  I love the circle feature of the text on the paper.  Did I mention that it’s already down on the page for you?

You have the half circle sentiment already on the paper.  After you add the picture area and mat, you can create a cluster down on the bottom right of the pictures to lead into or continue the circle.

These elements require no cutting.  =)   I wanted to show case this paper a little more.  I love the gold embossed outline of the roses on the white paper.  It’s beautiful.

Now that I’ve shown off the first layout of the Live Beautifully Cut Above, I want you to know there is an amazing offer on the table for the month of May.  This kit can be yours free when you join CTMH!  That’s a $44.95 ($45) value in addition to the great value of the New Consultant Kit

The Consultant Kit:

  • The kit is $75.00 with a value of $164.00 in it.
  • Then you get $50.00 of select product credit to pick select products you want to make up your kit!
  • The Cut Above Live Beautifully kit is $44.95 ($45).
  • For an additional $30.00, you can get the Consultant Kit for $75.00.  The best deal!

Best Friends Layout

Best Friends Layout:

This is another layout that you can create with the Some Kinda of Wonderful Workshop Your Way kit.  The directions are available for you to download on the website unless you purchase it through my cash and carry at the crops where I’m vending or the my house.  My store is open on Tuesday and Thursdays for cropping and shopping as well as various weekends for CropTastic. Even if you don’t come to crop, you can come to shop and visit with us.

This layout would be good for a sleep over, a spa day with the girls, a girls’ night out, and whatever fun day you might have with your girlfriends or your daughter/niece and their friends.

The title is created using the Compliments over the top of the zip strip with the “Best Friends” stickers and the glitter crosses.

The glasses are super cute with the heart shapes.  They are one of my favorite stickers in the pack.  I have some pictures of two of my friends and I having a spa day a few years ago.  I’m going to pull them out and put them in these pages.  =)

Here is one of the Workshop Your Way layouts you can create.  Directions are available for you to download.   The directions come with a cutting guide as well as assembly directions.  So nice to have these done for you when you are looking for your creative mojo.  The guide will ensure that you use almost all of the paper pack to make 3 three layout and some cards.  No waste.

The black glitter compliments are wonderful.  They really pop out for making the title as well as being embellishments.

One of the great things about getting the Workshop Your Way kits is that all the matching products are included in them.  You can now purchase a matching cardstock pack separately to make even more layouts.  The compliments are great to add little clusters around the layout for added character.

Here you use the Picture My Life cards as part of the embellishment cluster and you could still add some journaling in there if you wanted to.

Don’t forget y0u can use that zip strip from the top of the paper to add to your layout out! Nothing wasted, LOL!  If you are a non-stamper, these layouts are perfect for you.  Stampers, this is another opportunity to use your stamps as embellishments!!

Sunshine and Good Times

Sunshine and Good Times:

Taking a break from cards and coffee, here’s a Sunshine and Good Times Dreamin Big Camera Shaker Layout!  The left page of the layouts was inspired by Queen and Company’s sample layout for the Picture Perfect Kit.  Since I’m always taking pictures on both my camera and phone, this was a great layout to capture this.

My left page:My right page:

 

The Dreamin Big papers and compliments are awesome to use.  I think it’s my favorite paper of the SE1.  I had not used the bugs much so I opted to use this along with the zipstrips and a retired camera set from CTMH.  I also used 2 sentiments for a stamp set I received as a door prize at a crop from – .  I stamp on the tags and pennants from the Compliments.  I used the Pictures My Life cards from the Dreamin Big paper pack create the saying on the right page – “Sunshine and Good Times”.  How easy was that?

I used Black Shimmer Tape to add borders across both pages.  The Dreamin Big sequins were spread randomly through out the pages to add a little bling.  SG is always outside playing and collecting bugs.  Now that the weather is turning, I’ll be able to capture this.  The Camera Shaker is an added fun bonus to the page.  =)

March is a great month!  Here are the links to all of the great specials:
