Photos + Workshop Layouts

What do you get when you combine photos & layouts that were assembled for workshops that I taught? Album-ready pages in less than 30 minutes!

I added 1 flip flap (to the page above) and cut 4 photos down to fit into one space, and wah-lah I have paired these photos to a layout that has been sitting in a tote for about 10 years!

This particular layout was from a swap I coordinated. The swap was to give CTMH Makers a sample of every page of Imagine pattern book by Jeanette Lynton. I do not know who made this layout, but they did a great job. I never would paired the red with the green/blues, but I’m so glad she did as It works great with my photos.

Hope you find some crafty time!

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.
