Cut Above Kit – Photo Pairing

I have had many ah-ha moments lately. The latest one was about the Cut-Above kits that I have stacked on my shelves from the CTMH Scrapbook subscription. What might this ah-ha moment have revealed to me? That just like the “done” pages I have from workshops with no photos, these kits are perfect for creating layouts quickly. They have some advantages over the workshop pages as nothing is assembled so it’s even easier to incorporate my photos with the papers & die cuts.

Boo Crew Layout

Have you ever had that project that just feels like it was a hard-fought battle to get complete it? Well, this is mine!

I love where it ended, but it was walking up a steep hill both ways to bring it home!

I used this sketch and the Boo Crew Papers from Close to My Heart.

I also used the new SVG file from CTMH and showed how you can do that too!

Here is the process video.

I did a process video for it too!

Fun Fold Friday – Gatefold

#funfoldfriday #ctmh #craftingwithamanda

This week’s fun fold is just a workhorse. You can configure it to work exactly with the dimensions of your images, shapes & sentiments as well as use up tons of scraps.

Double-page Mixed Media

I did it! I created my first layout with texture paste. I loved it and will be doing that again!

The hexagons & the daisies are from Cricut design space, and I have links to the files below. The hexagons should just work, the daisies use the CTMH Flower Market Cartridge that may be purchased here if you don’t already own it.

The Isabella papers were so much fun to use. It felt fresh and fun to me!
