12x12 Scrapbook Layout #33 - 1st Day of School (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

I am beginning a new series, a school album. You will be seeing posts here on my blog as well as the process videos on how I finished the layouts on my YouTube Channel. If you ever have any specific questions on any part of my process or layouts, please leave comments on either my blog or the video you have questions about.

The first layout in the series is of course... 1st Day of School

The cut file is from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, "1st Day of School." All cuts are done with Close To My Heart cardstock and edge distressed with CTMH exclusive inks. Background papers are mentioned in my videos if I know where I bought them from.

Join me in this adventure by creating your own album and sharing with us here on the blog or Facebook Groups.



Enjoy!

12x12 Scrapbook Layout #32 - On the Road Again (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

Wow, it is Monday again! Time truly does fly by when you are having some great crafty fun. This week's design team post for Little Scraps of Heaven Designs is all about the "End of Summer." What things do you traditionally to do go out with a bang before heading back to school, fall weather, etc.? 

I used the cut file "On the Road Again" to signify the journey back home from a wonderful summer trip away. This is a 4 page scrapbook layout using the Close To My Heart, Flip Flaps. I have done a process video which focuses on how to use the Flip Flaps.

All cardstock, Flip Flaps and inks are from my Close To My Heart independent consultant website.




Enjoy!

12x12 Scrapbook Layout #31 - Movie Night-Staying In (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

How many of you are hunkering down in the house to enjoy the AC? I sure am, between hot temps and smoke in the air from fires, the house is the most comfortable place for me to be. I enjoy a good comfy seat, Netflix and a beverage while the cool temps keep me relaxed.

Today I am sharing a layout where I have used the "Movie Night-Staying In" cut file from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. You might even notice the background from way back when I used the Close To My Heart Artbooking Cricut cartridge collection to make the movie strip and title. Much like I stress the partnering of the LSHD files with CTMH cardstock and inks, I also feel our Cricut cartridges add that finishing touch at times.




Enjoy!

12x12 Scrapbook Layout #29 - Baa-ck to School (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

This morning I am sharing the second layout I created for the Little Scraps of Heaven Designs, Design Team blog back to school post. I have used the "Baa-ck to School" cut file to create a 2 page layout to represent a classroom full of desks and sheep. LOL You will notice that I had used the desks from this cut file on the "Meet the Teacher" layout. When searching through images, be sure to see how you can mix and match to create scenes.

All cardstock and inks are Close To My Heart. Background papers are from a paper pad from Hobby Lobby.

12x12 Scrapbook Layout #28 - Meet the Teacher (LSHD)

Hi Paper Crafters,

Most of the time we consider Monday a blah day since typically it is the first day of the work week. Little Scraps of Heaven Designs tries to brighten your Mondays with a new weekly theme post. Please take some time this week to check out the work the design team has posted... Back to School.

My project is a 2 page layout using the "Meet the Teacher" cut file.




Process video:


It's back to school time whether your kiddos are actually back in class or just getting prepared to start. I will be back to the classroom in a few weeks. However, I have been going in a little here and there as we are doing a huge makeover of my room. It was in dire need of a new coat of paint.



Enjoy!
