You can check out the details here on the Make it from Your Heart Blog.

Well I could not resist the opportunity to create a card and wish Jeanette a happy birthday.  Here is the card I designed.

Charlotte Birthday Bouquet ~ Springtime Wishes ~ Thin cuts ~ CatScrapbooking.comI thought a bouquet of Springtime Wishes flowers would be most fitting.  I watercolored some and just stamped other on pattern paper.  I even used one of the B&T papers and cut out some of the leaves.

Here is the full list of products used:

Charlotte Layout ~ Springtime Wishes ~ Puffies ~ CatScrapbooking@gmail.comSo two years ago we went on a week vacation to Florida which was a series of interesting events.  On the way down we missed our connection so we had to spend the night in a hotel which was not that bad since the airline paid for it but when traveling with a 2 year old you only carry on extra clothes for him.  We finally arrived and it was a beautiful day.  The next day that all changed as it rained no let me rephrase it was a MONSOON!!  For the next 5 days it rained.  But we made the best of it but it was tough being trapped in a house with 4 little boys.

For this layout I used the following product:

Kaleidoscope Layout ~ Texturizing Techniques

I have a fun layout that I created using a technique I recently saw in a Close to My Heart video.  The video is about adding texture to your layout and when was designing this layout I decided to give it a try.  Here is the video which shows a couple other ideas too but I focused on the cellophane bag, ink and our cleaner.

Here is my layout:

Kaleidoscope layout ~ Springtime Wishes ~ CatScrapbooking.comTo add the Sunset and Pacifica to the background here is what I did:

Texturizing Technique ~ Step 1 ~ CatScrapbooking.comThen just adding a spritz or two of the CTMH Stamp cleaner results in beading of the ink.

Texturizing Techniques ~ Step 2 ~ CatScrapbooking.comI then just rubbed the cellophane bag around the paper an viola a unique textured background.

Texturizing Technique ~ Kaleidoscope Layout ~ CatScrapbooking.comSo simple but it creates a unique affect.
