Here we go!

Who remembers the Seaside paper suite that came out in Summer of 2015???

Close To My Heart has brought this pack BACK...but with a little revamping of the colors to coordinate with our current colors.  AND.....there may even be a "Sneak Peek" of a new color to come on Sept 1st!! (new color....French Vanilla) 

I ADORE when CTMH have these monthly specials, because it USUALLY means they have a workshop kit created for us too!!  

Let's take a look at the workshop projects that CTMH designed to use with this collection....

The workshop kit has products to create...
(2) 1 page layouts......(1) 2 page layout....(3) 3x3 cards & (3) 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 cards!
Aren't they BEAUTIFUL???

I LOVE this paper...and wanted to create a 2nd layout to Project 2 (top right corner) that CTMH used my "leftover" scraps & made a few cutting changes in my kit to create that page for another 2 page layout design!!

Here is CTMH's single page layout.....

and here is how I took that 1 page...and made a 2nd page to turn it into a 2 page layout! 

This "sea scene" paper is so beautiful! I wanted to carry that paper over to the 2nd page.  It's very simple...but I was excited to get it to be 2 pages!
For this extra page....I added one extra sheet of French Vanilla 12x12 paper for the base & a 4 1/4 x 6 1/4 Smoothie photo mat on the right page too. All the other pieces were cut from papers that were included in the kit. 

The White & Bronze twine that comes included in the workshop kit is perfect for this collection. I adore the subtle "touch" the banners give this layout.

Take a closer look...and you can see the clouds that I stamped with Glacier ink too! 

Another NEW ADDITION that is added to this NEW 6 paper pack is.....a 12x12 Sticker Sheet!! Eeekkkk!!!  I'm so excited!! 

The anchor & stars, are STICKERS that come from that sheet! :) 

Let's take a look at the Seaside paper pack....and that 12x12 Sticker sheet!! 

Here is a close up look at the stamped sailboat.

The sailboat was stamped in Toffee ink...and again, you can see the clouds stamped here too.  This was a favorite stamp set of mine "back in the day" ....and I'm excited that this stamp set, Seaside Greetings, is back for a limited time too!! :) 

 While you can purchase the paper pack on it's on...the BEST deal is when you purchase the Workshop Bundle....and SAVE 25%!! Don't miss out on this FABULOUS deal....Seaside is only around until August 31 OR While supplies last! 

Make sure you check in with your CTMH Consultant for all the details!! 
I hope you enjoyed this layout design & I hope you were INSPIRED today!! :) 

Now it's time to "Hop" on over to Melinda's Blog to see her beautiful creation!
