I saw the fantastic SPRING that Ginni Candelaria designed and knew I wanted to do something like this.  I realized I did not really have much in the way of SUMMER decor so when I saw the Into the Wild paper pack inspiration took hold.

All of the Cricut cuts are from YOU ARE HERE and the FLOWER MARKET cartridges.  Here is a closer look at each letter.  The letters are our Chipboard Letters, we also have numbers too!

So living here in Colorado, our summers are spent enjoying all that the great outdoors have to offer. One of our family favorites is to Mountain Bike. So of course the letter “S” is a tribute to this.  I did use the Into the Wild Complements on a number of the letters.  I tore a bit of Kraft to make it look like a trail and also used some of the Silver Foil Paper on the bike.close to my heart ~ CatScrapbooking ~ Into the Wild ~ Summer ~ home decor

The “U” is playful to me with the trees and cute wood grain critters from the Into the Wild Complements.

I thought for this “M” I would feature one of the water sports you can do here.

Of course hiking is a big draw here in Colorado and one of my favorite ways to get out an explore the outdoors.

For the “R” I am featuring camping under the stars.  Whether you are a traditional tent camper or go for the RV this will get you covered.  I added a few of the stars from the Loose Silver sequins to add a bit of shine, in the photo they look blue.

Your next stop is along this hop is MICHELLE STEWART’S Blog, so hop on over and see what wonderful creation she has for you today.

Happy Crafting!

Heart 2 Heart ~ National Scrapbooking Month

Welcome to another weekly challenge with Heart 2 Heart!

National Scrapbooking Month is all about getting scrapbooking completing pages and celebrating our wonderful craft.  I have to admit I am totally loving the Cut Above Layout Kits and The World is Yours does not disappoint. I am also loving the Craft with Heart subscription! With my subscription I have been completing so many more layouts!  Here is The World is Yours Cut Above Layouts.

With this layout I added a few of the Into the Wild Wood Shapes and some of the Bronze Sequins. Here are the pages closer up.

I did change the size of the two lower outer photos. They are 2×3 inches instead of the 2×2 inch photos the kit suggests.

The second layout in the kit is great too!

With this layout I did not change or add anything.

Now it is your time to give it a try and link it to the HEART 2 HEART Challenge. You have until May 31th to participate in this challenge. We love to see your inspirations!!

Happy Crafting!
