Sweet Home--Lovin' It!

This new Close To My Heart paper packet has just been begging to be used, and I found the perfect photos from August when Ella's Aunt Laura came home from Turkey and when Ella and Emily played peek with a soft blanket. I can still hear their giggles {grin}.

Here's my so-simple layout using the Level 2 papers, Stickease, Barn Red marker, three itty bitty copper brads for bullet points, and a bit of waxy flax for a bow:

Sweet Home Card 1 with CTMH papers & sheer ribbon (Verve stamped verse):

Sweet Home Card 2: Aren't the colors rich, rich, rich? And being double-sided, the looks you can achieve are so different!

A side view showing that I used the Barn Red marker to color the white pop dots--I just don't like it when they pop out bright white in a design! CTMH markers are great...the two different ends serve two different purposes. One to journal. One to paint.
I used the long paint brush end to reach way into the recessed areas & also to paint around the stamped, cutout flowers to make them pop out from the card front.

Happy Tuesday!

Beautiful job! I've always wanted to take up scrap booking but whenever I venture into the section at a craft store I feel so overwhelmed with the papers, and cutters and ribbons and stamps!! Seems beautiful and with endless possibilities. Such a fantastic hobby... :)
