Today I would like to share with you a creation which features Close To My Heart’s Featured collection Something Fierce Paper Suite

Close To My Heart Something Fierce Paper Suite https://maz.closetomyheart.com.au

You may or may not have notice something a bit different about the paper packs in the new Seasonal Expressions 1?

The paper packs no longer include a cut apart Picture My Life pocket card sheet. They now have a cut apart embellishment sheet that has a pattern printed on one side & the cut apart embellishment print on the other.

So you can use the Dinosaur themed paper & the cut apart embellishments along with the Complements to make a very Dinosaur themed paper craft item or just use the generic patterns of the paper & pull out the non themed embellishments to create something different.

This allows you to have so many more options – but what about the pocket scrapbookers?

Well they do not miss out there are fab complimenting Picture My Life™ Cards perfect for the pocket scrapbooker or if you like to make cards out these – then you love that you will not have to cut them up – unless you really want to.

Anyway I love the what Close To My Heart is now offering with the paper suites & today I want to share this scrapbook layout I created with Something Fierce, which doesn’t have any dinosaurs in sight.

I pulled out some ideas that I learnt from the Close To My Heart Album Retreat I went to in Sep 2018 & used some of the papers & embellishments from both the cut apart paper & the Complements of the Something Fierce Paper Suite to create a focus on my cute little Grand Niece.

I even used some stamps from the Card Captions – January Stamp of the Month as they worked well with the layout. I used the Sending sunshine and rainbows & the dotted border stamp.

The layout also features a number of techniques including the use of one of the decorate border thin cuts at the top & bottom, some fussy cutting pink scallops out of pattern paper, stamping and a Ballerina & clear shimmer ink wash behind the word Kid.

I raised the photo up on 3D Foam tape to allow a hidden journal block & created a pull tab with the small pink printed star cut apart embellishment.

I used a mix of Alphabet Stamps to create my title, Solid Classroom & Simply Said.

By the way, Alphabet Stamps are 35% off this month!

This is a great layout to use scraps as your strips of paper , you do not have to go across completely behind  the photo, if they are too small cut them in half & only have what you need pocking out of each side of the photo. I did this with a couple of the washi like sticker strips & one of the cut apart printed paper strips.

I had fun creating this layout & been dying to share it since early Jan when I created it.

  1. Such a great layout for just one photo and I love how great it is for using up zip strips and scraps. I showed it to a customer on the weekend just so they could see how feminine this paper pack can be!
