Scrappy Saturday

This layout is pretty like you see it in the 
however I kept my photos 4 x 6.
I just couldn't bring myself to cut them down so I had to cover up 
a bit more of the beautiful  background paper.
I am so happy that I could use these pre-made pages for my
California trip photos.
I love looking back at these layouts to remind me of the wonderful visit we had.
That's what scrapbooking is all about!
It is just a bonus that I get to use beautiful papers and products from
Close To My Heart!

Pocket Card

This is the final card in my series and it's really a simple idea.
To make the pocket, just fold the front panel, of an A2 size card, back and flip to a horizontal opening.
Apply adhesive to the sides only to make a pocket.
Then decorate with patterned paper and embellishments.
I used a 3 x 4 PML journaling card for the slide-in card.
And I topped it with a paper loop and the adorable suede-like bow from the
This is a great way to use leftover PML journaling cards.
I think I will go through my stash and create some more of these!!
Thanks for hanging with me this week!

Tea Anyone?

Welcome back to the second edition of my 
"fancy fold" cards using the
For this card, I flipped the card to a vertical orientation to accommodate
the large teacup sticker.
Here's a look at the inside.
 I used zip strips for the horizontal stripes on the inside panel.
It was a fun to challenge to use up my scraps and
bits of leftovers from the Complements pack.
Come back Friday for the final card in my series.
Happy Wednesday!  
July is going by way too fast (said this teacher, lol)!!!

Beautiful Friendship

This week I will share with you a set of 
"fancy fold" cards that I created for my roomie at convention.
I just hopped on Pinterest and searched fancy folds and found the fun
Z-Fold style.
and 
Bashful Cardstock 
for all of my cards in the set.
The paper packet and the cardstock color will be saying good-bye at the end of August.
It is such a pretty color palette.
Here's a look at the inside.
How fun is this style card?
I used the stamp set from the 
Sweet Friends Cardmaking Kit.

Have a beautiful week friends!

Scrappy Saturday

Happy, scrappy Saturday!
Last month I showed you the CTMH artwork from the
Fresh Air WYW.
For the rest of July,
I will share my spin on the layouts with my pics from the California trip.
This is the first layout.
I love how the design uses all the patterned papers!
I love ALL THE PATTERNED PAPERS, LOL.
The title is copper which is hard to tell in the photo.
As you can see the ground cover in California is soooo dry.
Now I can see how those fires spread for miles and miles.
That is a bit scary.
This happens to be just up the road from my son's home.
We walked up the mountain, a mile or two to take in some breathtaking views.
Hope you enjoy the views too!

and
masculine cards.
It another good one to add to your Stampaganza Wish List.
Like the sentiment above states,
"Relax and enjoy your day."
