Now for today’s reveal.

jubilee layout 1

This is Jubilee- bright, playful, sunny and summery (and as I write this and look out my window at yet another foot of snow after a big snowfall I cannot wait to feel sunny and summery!).

This layout is from another workshop on the go kit.  I love how it all came together and how the colours worked perfectly to scrapbook my Canada Day memories from last summer! It also made me wish we had made it out to the fall fair.

What would you scrapbook with this fun paper?

Spring/Summer CTMH Idea Book Reveal: Day 9

Welcome to Day 9 of the CTMH Idea Book reveal! Today we are moving away from the soft and springlike to a more masculine product reveal.  For a long time (8 years)  the only child I had to scrapbook was my son, Austin.  Early on I learned to really appreciate the time and attention that CTMH pays to making masculine papers with a board appeal.  Timberline is a paper just like that- although it can be very theme based – outdoorsy or camping- it can also be used in creative ways to fit different purposes!

My first layout comes from the Timberline workshop on the go kit- I already spoke about the ease of these kits earlier but they come with a full paper pack, usually two full accessory packs, an exclusive stamp set and instructions for two layouts!  I can’t say we camp a lot but I still enjoyed putting this kit together with all the cute stamp images and super-cute wooden accessories!

My next layout shows the same timberline paper,timberline assortment and timberline stickease being used in a  completely different fashion.  I am a big believer in scrapbooking the more difficult times in our lives- we are great at featuring the fun and happy but most tend to stay away from anything deeper.  This past summer, Austin had to undergo open-heart surgery to repair a congenital heart defect (meaning he was born with this).  Certainly one of the hardest moments of our lives and VERY stressful! It was rough on Austin but he was able to keep moving through it all- he persevered through pain, discomfort and hours of just feeling crummy!  All of this I made sure to document in this layout- I want him to know just how amazing he did and how special he is to us!

In order to make this theme fit the ‘adventure’ theme of the stickers I really only had to adjust a few things- I took a few stickers and added some writing to them.  the ‘picnic’ stickers now says ‘no picnic’ and the ‘happy camper’ now reads ‘not a happy camper’.  Other stickers I just had to use in the correct place- things like ‘take a hike’ or ‘roughen’ it’ were perfect for what I was writing about and helped carry through my story.

ariana layout 1

This two page layout is from out Ariana Workshop on the Go kit- what I LOVE about these kits is that everything I need is in the bag! I just make sure I have adhesive and my stamp pads, add my photos and I have a gorgeous layout in no time at all!   This is only ONE of the TWO layouts that you can complete with a workshop on the go kit (and yes you will have plenty of leftovers and an exclusive stamp set to keep forever and ever).
