Beach layout using Jackson paper collection

When I first looked at the Jackson paper collection, I knew it would be perfect for my pictures from a recent trip to Great Wolf Lodge.  What I didn't see immediately is how well it worked with my beach pictures - and the beach is my "home away from home".  Here's a look at how the paper collection looks with two different views.

I picked up a package of Great Wolf Lodge scrapbooking embellishments from their gift shop and the colors worked perfectly with Jackson!

The colors work great with beach photos as well as camping, hiking and outdoor adventures. The stamps and embellishments on this layout are from the Jackson Workshop on the Go.  The title "Happiness is . . ." was cut using Cricut Art Philosophy.

Celebrate Summer with a Lemonade Stand

We always thought we were going to make it big with our lemonade stand.  We'd set up a table in the front yard and hang a sign.  What happened next was different every time, but every time it was the best day ever. I added some limes to mine . . . cold and refreshing!

Celebrate your Lemonade Stand adventures with a colorful layout using "Taste of Summer" papers.  
Taste of Summer - "Lemonade" - Close To My Heart (Magic: Parlor Trick) ---  #ctmhtos (Magic: Parlor Trick,  Magic How-to book - 9040)
My title was cut using Cricut Artfully Sent (Z3017) (weld text with -5 spacing and 1 inch tall).  I cut it once from white daisy and once from Taste of Summer and layered the white behind (slightly offset) to give a highlight.

The journaling spot is cut from Cricut Artbooking (Z1906) bundle stamp set "Sweet & Lovely" (D1571). Juniper ink coordinated very well with this paper line.

Taste of Summer is available in May for just $8.95 - no qualifying purchase is necessary.  Product CC1038 - Taste of Summer paper.  (hurry while supplies last)

 In addition, a coordinating stamp set is available for $17.95.  Product CC1039 Taste of Summer stamp.

Thanks for stopping by!

Blossom Flip Flap Workshop

In honor of National Scrapbooking Month I've created a special Flip Flap workshop using the new "Blossom" paper collection.  Here's a sneak peek. I've shown it here, closed, without the protector so there's no glare.

Here it is, in the protector - first closed and then with all four flaps open.

This workshop features the Blossom paper packet, Blossom Complements, Flip Flaps (12 inch assortment and 4x6 inch size), as well as Cricut shapes and title.  I also used some black photo corners and ribbon that I had in my stash as well as additional flowers from a older Workshop on the Go kit.  The title is made using the four fonts from each of the four CTMH Cricut cartridges.
