Hello! I’ve been playing with the February 2019 Craft with Heart subscription kit by Close to My Heart this past week. (Click HERE to go to the Close to My Heart webpage for more information about the Craft with Heart kits.)
Each kit includes the pieces to create two double-page layouts; however, for this page, I am going to adjust one of the layouts and convert it into a single page layout.
Watch the video below to see what I did! Then, stop by again tomorrow when I will be sharing the second layout I create using the kit.
Have a great day!
What do you do when you can’t decide which patterned papers to use on your layout? Use them all!
When I began this page, I could not decide which patterned paper from the Simple Stories Spring Farmhouse collection
to cut into first. I just loved them all so much! When this happens, I like to take inspiration from quilts and piece together a background using multiple patterns.
First, I pulled out all of the papers from the Spring Farmhouse 6×8 Paper Pad
that had full patterns on both sides. I then punched twenty 3″ circles from the patterned papers. Next, I scored the circles at 0.5″ on four sides. After scoring, fold each “petal” in towards the center creating a square shape with four “petals.” After all of your circles are folded, line them up in rows to create the background.
This page has so much texture and dimension with the folded circles. I just LOVE it! Try giving this technique a try on your next scrapbook page!

I think every little (and big) girl goes through a phrase of loving unicorns and rainbows. If you are one of those girls (and WHO isn’t?!) you are going to want to spend a day playing with the Doodlebug Lots O’ Luck collection with all of its rainbow and unicorn goodness!
For my daughter’s 14th birthday, I had my bestie bake her this darling unicorn cake as a surprise. She loved it! It was perfect with it’s rainbow colored mane, golden horn, and delicious pink, Funfetti cake inside.
I began this page by using the Swimming Pool Dots/Stripes paper for my background. I then added a series of patterned paper strips for my photos to rest upon. I gave the main photo a triple mat with white cardstock, Raspberry Textured Cardstock, and the Gold Sugar Coated Cardstock. I called even more attention to the main photo by placing a large circle of Lots O’ Luck paper (green argyle) behind it.
For the title, I used a sticker from the This & That Sticker Sheet. I just love that rainbow and the sentiment, “You Color My World.” I accented this corner of the page with a couple of die cut clouds from the Odds & Ends pack, and Gold Sprinkles.
You KNOW I had to add a unicorn to a page about a unicorn cake! Isn’t she cute with her rosy cheeks and rainbow mane and tail?! I paired her with a couple of hearts from the Odds & Ends pack and then added Matte Sprinkles and Gold Sprinkles to the hearts for dimension.
These papers make me smile every time I pull them out to play with them and you will, too! Have fun!
