Craft With Heart - September 2018 Layout 2

Hi Paper Crafters,

What an awesome Saturday! I have had the whole day to work in my craft room, some much needed paper crafting therapy. This post is to share the second layout for the Close To My Heart, Craft With Heart September subscription kit.

The first thing I would like to point out is my use of the Saffron color. I am not a yellow or orange color kind of person, but I really like this combination with the Poppy color. You can see the use of an embossing folder, stamp sets, gems, sequins and Nuro Drops. A fun layout for summer or fall I believe.

Enjoy!

Be sure to check out the subscription details on my Close To My Heart independent consultant website.

1st and basic level.


2nd level with stamping and embossing detail on colored cardstock.


3rd and final level with embellishments added by way of gems, sequins, Nuvo Drops, washi tape.

Craft With Heart - September 2018 Layout 1

Hi Paper Crafters,

I have returned to my craft room to work on the new subscription from Close To My Heart, Craft With Heart. Below you will see a sequence of photos where I share a difference in scrapbooking levels. The first photos are based on the photo instructions provided with the kit, I merely added edge distressing to the pieces and created an ombre effect on some of the die cuts. The second level features additional die cut and sticker pieces intended for the second layout. You will notice the twine I have used on the layout now has knots where the twine meets. My final level has sequins, gems, Nuvo Drops and sticker letters to round out my clusters. I will add photos of my grandson and myself before placing in my album.

Stay tuned for layout 2 of the September Craft With Heart subscription kit. Here is the link to my independent consultant website for ordering your own subscription. I would love for you to join in on the fun of these wonderful monthly kits.

Enjoy!

Basic layout per instructions provided in the kit.


Second layout where I have included the die cuts and stickers intended for layout 2.


Final layout with finishing touches using sequins, gems, sticker letters and Nuvo Drops.
