I used lots of CTMH dies to add additional details on this page. Here you can see the Stitched Hearts, as well as the leaf sprigs I created with the Decorative Borders Dies.

Close to My Heart: November Craft with Heart November Kit

Happy Black Friday! I’m a “shop from my computer” kind of gal, but if you are out braving the crowds I hope you are getting the deals and steals you’re after! 😀

I’ll be spending the day cooking turkey for  “Thanksgiving 2.0” at my in-laws house. It should be a great day! It’s always fun to spend time with family.

Today I have another Process Video for you sharing my first layout using the November Craft with Heart Subscription kit by Close To My Heart. Check it out below!

Two-Page Layout: Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

I’ve loved playing with the Simple Stories Forever Fall collection this year. Today I have a two-page layout featuring family photos from our Thanksgiving dinner last year.

GOBBLE, GOBBLE, GOBBLE

Jana Eubank Simple Stories Forever Fall Gobble Two Page Layout 1 600

DESIGN TIP:  Look to bring in additional patterns by taking a cue from the elements in the collection you are working with. Some of the leaves and pumpkins in this collection had a newsprint pattern, so I decided to pull in a text patterned paper from my stash. I used it to die cut my title words and the leaves across the top of the page.

Jana Eubank Simple Stories Forever Fall Gobble Two Page Layout 2 600Jana Eubank Simple Stories Forever Fall Gobble Two Page Layout 3 600

I used the Gobble, Gobble, Gobble cut file by Loni Stevens found in the Silhouette Design Store (#22530) to create the title block behind my family photo. It was fun to add little accents of chipboard and die cuts from the Bits & Pieces pack in the openings of the letters.

DESIGN TIP: Try looking for pattern cues in your photos. My dad was wearing a plaid shirt on this day, so I decided to mat these photos with the plaid Pumpkin Everything paper. It subtly ties the left side of the layout together with the pattern of my dad’s shirt on the right side of the layout.

I also used the plaid heart sticker on the journal block above the photo of my parents to bring in a bit of that plaid again.

Finally, here is a closer look of the leaf border across the top of both pages. I simply used some metal leaf dies from my stash, adhering them lightly with liquid glue to keep them in place while I stitched through them with my sewing machine.

After stitching through them, I fluffed up the edges of the leaves for a bit more texture.

Don’t forget to take family photos this year at your Thanksgiving dinner. It’s the perfect time to grab a shot of your family for your annual Christmas card!

It’s been awhile since I have used dictionary/text style paper on a project. It was a lot of fun! Will you give it a try on your next project?

More Stashbusting with PageMaps Sketches: Part 1

Working with the monthly sketches at PageMaps always puts me in the mood to do some stashbusting. I’m back today and tomorrow with a four more pages I created using the sketches this month.

BIRTHDAY BASH

This time I used the two-page sketch along with the Bella Blvd. Mind Your Manners collection to scrapbook my daughter’s 10th birthday party.

The pictures are dark and grainy and some are a bit blurry, but these cute papers brighten them right up!

I used the letter stickers for this collection to build the title. There was an odd space to the right of the word “bash” afterwards. My simple fix was to punch three hearts and just line them up in a row to fill up the space.

I added a few more punched hearts around the page to tie them in with the title.

This next page was a simple one and came together quickly using the Dear Lizzy Lovely Day collection. I love that!

LAST DAY

I decided to do a small title on this layout to stay true to the sketch, but honestly, it feels a bit naked to me. Haha! I’m wondering if I should have done a LARGE and in charge title above the tags/photos. I’m probably over-analyzing it, though. *giggle* And it’s good to try something new once in awhile, right?

I LOVE cloud dies! They are the perfect “filler” for an empty spot. These ones are extra cute with their faux stitching and flat bottoms! I bought them from AliExpress a looong time ago … but, I would highly suggest adding some cloud dies to your stash if you don’t have any. ❤

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed seeing me dig into my stash a bit and maybe inspired you to tackle a collection you own that could use a little crafting love. *wink*

Have a great day!
