Welcome to our 

Simply Inspired 
Close To My Heart 
Blog Hop!

This month we are highlighting the gorgeous new collection of items
 from Close To My Heart, called Skylark!!

The Skylark collection includes:
Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit
Picture My Life Scrapbooking kit

…and of course, because CTMH colors coordinate together - you will find a variety of other items that work perfect with this kit, even though they aren’t shown as part of the Skylark collection! J

If you have come here from Debbi’s Blog , you are on the right path! 

The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants HERE.

Its super simple to hop along with us - just click on the link at the end of each blog post to move to the next one!

Here we go! J
I created a one page layout & my layout design comes from the Make It From Your Heart, vol 2, pattern #7.

I can’t believe it…but I actually only stamped ONE ITEM on this entire layout!!  That is VERY unusual for me…but I was really happy with the results of my page, even minus my stamping!!! 

Can you guess what image is stamped on this page??  J

As part of this page, I used 3 leftover Picture My Life (PML) scrapbooking cards, and then created another “card” from our new Paper Fundamentals cardstock. (light tan card)

(CLICK HERE to see my original post using PML Scrapbooking cards. )

I love the Paper Fundamentals with their “glossy design on 1 side  & regular pattern on the other”.  This makes this paper a very USEABLE item in anything that you are creating!!

I chose to include the use of 2 of CTMH’s EXCLUSIVE Cricut collections -the Artbooking & Artiste cartridges, in this layout.  The honeycomb shape (on the left side of the page) comes from the Artbooking collection, while the  “perfect” bird clip comes from the Artiste! 

I love how the Skylark Complements add pizazz & flair to ANY item you are creating!  I inked the edges of the colored chipboard and then just adhered it to my layout!

  2. Gorgeous page, Krista! I love how you incorporated the PML cards in the design. I need to do that more.

  3. Love one-page layouts! Especially like the honey-comb overlay and the little bird clip!
