City Sidewalks Workshop on the Go












Meet Charlotte, from Close To My Heart

Good Day Crafters:

Today I am showcasing, Charlotte from the Close To My Heart collections.  I just love the soft peach and grey tones of this paper collection. Workshop on the Go, is a fun way to have the paper, cardstock and embellishments are ready, "to go," so you can create a lovely layout.

A Blast From the Past!

Hello Crafters:  Today I am showcasing and older double page layout. I created this layout with the inspiration of the movie, "Hope Floats.|" I think the cowboy hat created the idea.  

This is a pretty simple layout with a basic cardstock background and distressed gingham paper.  I added he title and lots of co-ordinating Prima Flowers.  

Journaling is something I really try to do often.  I have little strips of journaling on each page as well as a journal card. 
Tell Your Story....always nice to look back. 

HOPE FLOATS


Thank you for peeking in.  Have a Crafty day.

Love Doesn't Melt (I use the sticker sheet)


A little journal tag to top it all off and some cotton balls for snowball embellishments.


If the journal card doesn't fit, you can fussy cut the designs, here is the road sign.

Just A Little Winter Fun ....Layouts for you to enjoy!

Hello Crafters:

I hope you are enjoying your Saturday.  It is windy and it looks like it's going to rain today so I thought I should get started with some double-page layouts. While I was cleaning and sorting my Crafting Station, I found this 12x12 Paper collection by Carta Bella - Snow Fun!  Yes, I know it's still summer and the thought of snow and cold is far from our minds but in the Scrapbooking world anything goes right? :)

Sometimes I need to use our dining room table so that I may spread out the project. 

Here is the double page layout.  Sorry about the glare.  
I used Moonlight Blue Bazzill cardstock for the mats and the 
patterned papers are all part of the 12x12 paper collection package. 
There are plenty of stickers left over for my Christmas cards. 






Thank you for peeking in...now that I am on a Snow Roll I will be creating another project using, Photoplay's Snowball Fight...stay tuned ---->

Happy Scrappin'
