Close to My Heart has created some great tools for consultants to use at gatherings or workshops. One of those tools is Insider Guides. These are templates for either a scrapbook layout or cards. I have another one to share with you today. It’s from the fall of 2015 and was originally used with White Pines paper. Here is the White Pines Guide 1509-ci-workshop-white-pines-us_ca
I’ve been remiss in using some of the newest papers, so I thought I would change that and broke out the fun Calypso Paper (gone the end of July 2016!)
Card Number one is a little deceiving. The yellow and white striped paper is a full 4.25 x 5.5. (Just like card 1 in the insider guide) I used the springtime wish thin cuts for all the great flowers. I finally got out the watercolor paints and played with those too. I feel like I am getting better every time I use them!
Card Number two uses the artfully sent cartridge (auto) and the spring wishes thincuts (the little flowers). The stamp is from the June Stamp of the Month.
These are delightful! I never cease to be amazed at how many different interpretations can come from one pattern. Maybe I will take one pattern, find all my larger scraps, and see how many different cards can be made from one layout. It’s a plan!
