Sweet Life! Sweet Stamping!

Sweet Life! Sweet Stamping!

This was the name of the Close to my Heart class I took where we made two 2 page layouts. 

 Here is the first layout. The three pieces of cocoa paper are photo mats.
 The colonial white piece of cardstock is where the journaling goes. The twist tie was threaded through the button. I found the easiest way to do this is to first gently fold the paper on the twist tie so it is more the size of the button hole. Then I just threaded it through the button till it started to fight.
 The washi tape was just randomly applied not intended to be neatly and evenly applied. The lagoon pieces were stamped to give texture.
 This is the second layout. It used Kraft paper as the background. I chose to take my colonial white pieces and ink the edges in cocoa.
 Again the wood grain stamp was used to create texture on cardstock, this time though it was the sunset paper. The word Sweet I put 3d foam under to give the layout more dimension. Last on this page is the leaves, they were done with sunset and honey using the rock n' roll technique.

Here again you can see that the washi tape was randomly applied, and a fun cluster was made on and next to the journaling spot. Now the gray pieces of cardstock will have photos on them.

This class was fun and easy. What I enjoyed the most about this class was how the stampset that originally goes with a different paper in the Idea book (pg.  ) was reused with the baby cake paper. Secondly the Baby cakes paper was very Baby oriented (check it out here), and Close to my Heart took that paper and made 2 more fall oriented layouts with it. This just shows how versatile the Close to my Heart paper really is.
