Have you taken notice of the Kaleidoscope paper collection from Close To My Heart?
Such bright, fun colors to work with!!
My monthly group of ladies, enjoy creating scrapbook pages….so I needed to create some of my own pages, since there was not a Workshop kit that CTMH created for this paper collection. J
(But you'll want to take note of the ADORABLE Kaleidoscope cardmaking kit they DO have available!!)
Here are the layouts I created…
Layout 1 was created from a layout design that CTMH gave us at this summer’s 2015 Convention.
I wanted to use only colors from the Kaleidoscope paper collection – so I needed to trade out some cardstock colors compared to the original CTMH layout, to make this happen.
While I do like the “original” layout & colors by CTMH, I was really excited how this layout turned out by only using the colors included in the Kaleidoscope paper collection.
As I was creating these set of layouts, I wanted to use the coordinating Kaleidoscope Complements on all three layouts, so I incorporated these fun goodies in each layout as well.
Let’s take a close-up look at some of Layout 1 details.
We did some stamping on this 1st layout, and I “copied” directly from the CTMH layout.
Check out the “flowers” we created with this stamp set, we used the leaf stamp image from the FRIEND TREE stamp set!! I LOVE to use stamp images in ways we don’t think about – and that’s how we created this flower!!
Below, the bicycle needed some glitter hearts and the dotted strip of paper is a “zip-strip” that’s an “extra goodie” included with CTMH paper collections!!
Here is layout 2….we used Pear cardstock as our base pages.
Let’s see a few close ups of this page…
The large diamond is a sticker that comes in the Complements collection. I mounted that on a scrap piece of canary cardstock & then cut a piece of white shimmer trim to give it some sparkle.
Also, note that the clear stickers were used just like they are. (check out layout 3 for another way to use the clear stickers)
I used a mixture of the 3D shapes, stickers & added white shimmer trim to give it some pop!
It’s fun to dove-tail the shimmer trim OR just cut it off on an angle!! This is ONE product that I use all the time, you can use it in so many ways!!
Layout 3 was created using Pattern 3, from our Make It From Your Heart #2 how-to- book.
As I mentioned above – this time….take note of the “clear stickers” on this layout. These "clear" flower stickers are no longer clear, but I mounted them on white daisy cardstock & then cut them out to place them as accents on the layout!!
Here is a close-up of the title of this page…
Again, I added the "fun day" sticker to a piece of scrap gypsy cardstock. and added a piece of shimmer trim behind the title.
The tie dye zig zags are a sticker, but – since I don’t like to waste anything J…I cut another set of zig zags out of the negative space & used that on the right side of this layout too!!
By clustering many elements together, you get a really neat scrapbook page!!
