Lovely Layers – CTMH Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to the Close to My Heart Technique Blog Hop!

This month there are around 16 of us highlighting Lovely Layers!  In this hop the participants can interpret this theme title and show you some wonderful artwork. I choose to focus on one of our fun stamps that has multiple layers to it.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork. If you are coming from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, you are on the right track! If you get lost along the way you can find the complete list of participants on Melissa’s Blog.

I love The Berry Best stamp set as you have the two layers of the strawberries plus the pint. It is such a bright and fun stamp set too.  I used Candy Apple and Clover for the strawberries. Glacier, Sapphire, and Peach for the tag and pint.

I used the So Much Happy paper pack and added White and Clover cardstock.  I also used the cross stitched border from the Decorative Border Thin Cuts on the Clover.

I popped the strawberries and pint up with foam tape and used a bit of White Twine for the ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!  Please continue onto MISS CARRIE’S CREATIONS where you will find some additional artwork highlighting LAYER!  Be sure to leave a comment and let me know what you thought and happy hopping!

Happy Crafting!

Taste of Summer ~ Strawberry Pickin’

Have you heard the news?  Close to My Heart has come out with a fun, bright, colorful paper pack to celebrate National Scrapbooking Month called TASTE OF SUMMER.  I love this paper pack and have been having so much fun crating with it.

Taste of SummerDon’t you just love all the fun colors?  It has really gotten me excited for summer.  When I saw the strawberry paper and the strawberry stamps with the corresponding Taste of Summer Stamp Set, I knew it would be perfect for our Strawberry Pickin’ photos from last year.

I was inspired by some layouts created by the talented Susan Williams to use the Framework Alphabet for my title.  I thought it would be fun to use a strawberry for the “a”.   To give the strawberries a little something extra, I stamped them with pigment inks and then applied Liquid Glass.

The flowers are from my Cricut Design Space Subscription ~Home for the Holidays – Spring. They are cut at 1.5″, 1.25″ and 1″.
