The Making Waves paperpack is truly magical, it has some beautiful pieces of paper and the accessories are beautiful. My daughter keeps stealing all of the accessories off my desk so I have to go hunting for them.
I took some inspiration for this layout from the seasonal expression catalogue by using the circles as scales on the right page. To combine it into a 2 page layout, I used an overlay from the Artbooking Cartridge. I cut out the left scales using the centre cut function and then used the outside border as a frame on the right page. I added some stamping to accent the page with the lovely mermaid, some bubbles and the super cute saying. This layout could become 2 1-page layouts as well. The picture placement is open for what works for your pictures as well.

I was saying goodnight to my son and the famous line "I love you to the moon and back" from the wonderful book, Guess How Much I Love You, popped into my head. Lightbulb moment I guess as I had been struggling all day to come up with an idea for this weeks class. I played around with the CTMH stamp with the saying and the new Stargazer paper as I didn't want this layout to be overly gender specific. I like that the title box isn't overpowering the layout, but you can still see it since I used a mask to create the double coloured image. I random stamped the stars around the image and then adhered the moon with 3D foam. I used the star image from the Charming Cascades stamp set in the corners of the base pages and then completed the layout with a rocket and Saturn cut with the Cricut. As the rocket ship paper is quite busy, it was important to find balance and not have it crowd the page.

This is the new Gimme Some Sugar paper. You should definitely check out the full paper pack if you are looking for something cute for some kitchen pictures. There are some great papers and some cute sayings on the PML card sheet. To make this layout, the bulk papers are this cute floral and a nice juniper polka dot. The bottom left rectangle on the left page is a Picture My Life (PML) card. Each person will be able to choose their own PML card. I used a cut from the Flower Market cartridge to create the wreath surrounding the journalling space on the right side. The title was cut from the You Are Here cartridge as well. I finished off the layout with some blue roses on the top left. Below is the layout with my pictures and the journalling complete.

Welcome back to another scrapbooking session. This is another 10 week class and I hope you all enjoy it as much as my previous ones.
I started off with inspiration from the current Idea Book. Versions of each of these pages show up in the catalogue, but I saw them and wanted to combine them into a cohesive 2-page layout. I used an old paper pack called Sangria that has some lovely purples, oranges and reds throughout the papers. I've used this paper previously, but usually in a fall layout. This time I played up the purple by using Eggplant cardstock as my base pages. I utilized the Center Point function on my Cricut in order to cut the heart in the middle of the page. I also used the cut out heart to over lay the strips of paper and then adhered it back onto the base page. I added texture and dimension to the left page by embossing 2 of the hearts as well as stamping a pattern on the 3rd. The mix of patterned paper and photos was balanced by the solid colour of the base pages. I finished off the layout with a couple of stamped images and some embellishments from the Sangria Complements pack. Each of the attendees to my class will be able to choose their own embellishments to make this layout unique to their own tastes.

Yes this is more Christmas paper, but I'm not using it as that. I will be putting my son's soccer pictures on this layout. I also stamped the title using an alphabet stamp so that it could change in case each person wants to change the theme of the layout. If you would like to change it to a Christmas themed layout, you can switch the black patterned paper over to the Christmas word art paper from Silver and Gold.
To made my own gold stars using some gold foil paper, a punch and a star thin cut. I did Cricut cut the black and red stars. I also accented with star gems and gold shimmer tape.
