This is a two page layout I designed using Close To My Heart's Elemental Papers. I love the Close To My Heart papers because everything coordinates so well and when I want to pound a layout out all my inks, embellishments, and papers all match without me spending hours figuring it out.The die cut in the upper right hand corner is cut on the Cricut using the Art Philosophy cartridge available exclusively at Close To My Heart. This cartridge has over 700 images, comes with three coordinating stamp sets, and three sets of Dimensional Element chipboard shapes. Its my favorite cartridge and the last two months I have used this cartridge exclusively.
I used the Martha Stewart Floral Tile Punch Around The Page punch. I loved using this. It was easy to line up, the magnets hold the paper in place, and it added just the decorative element to perfectly compliment the Elemental papers.
I added some Tim Holtz stick pins and used the butterflies from Close To My Heart to add a decorative element with whimsy to this page. The circle chipboard piece is from the Elemental Collection. I inked the butterflies with the Sunset and Lagoon ink.
I made the flower using the 2 inch scallop punch from Close To My Heart. I inked the edges and crinkled them to give them dimension. Again, I added a Tim Holtz stick pin and stamped two hearts with Lagoon ink. The stamp set is from Close To My Heart. The stamped swirl on the journal spot is also from Close To My Heart. Its called Love Life. You can find all these things by visiting my consultants site at:
