Happy Thanksgiving - Fall/Babycakes 2 page layout

Happy Thanksgiving to each of you!! 
Blessings to each of you as we think & give thanks for the many things we have been blessed with!

Today, I wanted to share another Autumn project with you…it’s not too late…right?  It’s still Thanksgiving - LOL!! 

I realized that Autumn is almost over and I haven’t shared one of my FAVORITE fall layouts with you!!  I’m excited to share this with you today! J

I really love the Babycakes paper pack that CTMH debuted this Autumn/Winter season! 

The neutral colors are what I work with best, and even though I don’t have babies in my home anymore…I knew I would most likely use this paper pack often because of the neutral tones.

Well, I was right AND I’ve been quite happy with the many items I’ve create with this pack!!

Take a look at this 2 page layout!! This layout design came from our MAGIC how-to book, on page 40, called “Levitate”.

I created this 2 page sample for my East Brandywine Crop that is held at the end of October each year!  We always have a make and take that you create for FREE J - and I usually create some type of border for make n take that can be used on their scrapbook pages. 

Here is the border everyone created for the make n take….

The shiny, sheen you see in the middle of this border is pearl paint!  I LOVE the option CTMH’s pearl paint can bring to any creation!!  It added a little extra touch, by painting the pearl paint overtop of the paper.
And of course, I LOVE to share  a 2 page layout of a POSSIBLE way that this make n take border be used! 

Let’s take note of some of the FUN items on this page…

The WASHI Tape…yes, I have it bad…I love to use washi as a “quick embellishment” quite often - and I LOVE how it looks!!  This repositionable, decorative tape adds so much to ANY creation!!!  If you haven’t tried it yet, you must give it a try!!! 

Did you NOTICE how the washi tape will “take on” the background color?  So, I used the woodgrain washi (from the Party Washi Tape pack) on 3 different background colors - Sunset, colonial white & dotted designer paper!!  I LOVE how it looks different on EACH of these backgrounds!!

Close To My Heart now carries 8 different washi’s

2 individual washi tapes (the middle ones)…

AND 2 different types of 3 pack Washi tape’s - that are ONLY AVAILABLE until Dec 31st OR while supplies last!!!

I LOVE the 1” thick tapes, and will miss this size in the next Idea book…however, I know that there will be more washi coming our way in Feb 2014!! 

Here’s a close up of some MORE washi!!

DID YOU KNOW…you can use washi to actually adhere the photo mat to the paper…J

OR use washi tape to create a “patterned arrow” by placing washi tape behind the image!! 

One MORE use of washi...did you notice the yellow pennants???  Yup, this is washi tape too! 

A few more things to note….
  • The orange (sunset) photo mat and leaves were cut by our Artbooking Cricut cartridge.
  • The glitter scallop on the right side, was scalloped with our NEW Scallop Border punch!!
  • The arrows stamped on the yellow (buttercup) piece came from a favorite NEW stamp set- One Way Borders.
  • I used PIGMENT inks to stamp the word fall (LOVE this framework alphabet stamp set!!!!)
  • After letting the pigment ink dry for a bit, I then colored in the word “fall” with our BEAUIFUL alcohol markers

Another item I used in this 2 page  layout…

Our Irresistible Shapes - I used our Honeycomb ones shown here…

The shapes come PRE-embossed and look “white” with a design on it when you purchase them…

however, when you “ink up” the shape (sponge daubers work best) with whatever color coordinates with your creation you will be AMAZED at how EASY it is to add an accent to your creation!!! (notice the pennant washi tape running down the right side…wahoo LOVE Washi!)

As you can see, the Babycakes paper pack is the PERFECT pack to create a fall layout!!!  I encourage you to take a moment to look at CTMH’s other paper packs and look at the colors to see how they can be used DIFFERENTLY from their "normal" theme!!
