Chantilly Expo...it will be "some kind of wonderful!"

I love Scrapbook Expos!  And love them even more when they are so close to home!  This weekend the Scrapbook Expo is coming to Chantilly, VA and my dear friend Barb Carrico and I will be there to share all of the Close To My Heart goodness!  I am so excited!  You are going to love what we have in store for you!  Our teams have worked hard to help us create a dynamic booth and of course, you know that there will be fabulous Create and Takes, inspiring artwork and a wealth of CTMH happiness!  

To celebrate this occasion, I created this Create and Take with our recently retired Some Kind of Wonderful paper.  This paper is truly "wonderful" to work with and yes, the pun was intended.  The layout features our Flower Market Cricut cartridge, interactive flip flaps, glittery accents and our signature Clear Shimmer pens.  The create and take will be offered at an exclusive expo price just this weekend.

For those not attending the Chantilly Scrapbook Expo, you can still purchase this "wonderful" layout in my In All Sassiness Shop.  Just click here and you will be directed to my shop.  The kit includes everything needed to create the layout:  all needed pieces are pre-cut, and stamped, includes the embellishments, flip flaps, flowers, detailed instructions and a color photo to guide you through the creating process.

I love my family!

Who doesn't right?  That is the adorable phrase, and title of my newest layout that I created with the Prickly Pear paper collection.  The layout was inspired by a layout that the Home Office's Art department created and published in our Seasonal Expression 2 Book.  I determined how they created the layout, tweaked a few things to make it more "me" and created a left page to balance the right page.  I love the angles the design!  So unique and indeed classy - at least in my book!  The layout uses everything Prickly Pear -- the paper, compliments, sequins and event the Prickly Pear Scrapbooking/Thin Cut Bundle!  Love, love, love!

The power of the zip strip!

I love the more detailed and intricate designs found on the zip strips of our Close To My Heart papers - these are the top strips that extend past the 12" x 12" of the papers that double as descriptors of the name of the paper and colors included.  They add so many possibilities to a project and are fabulous for cards!  This is a card that I created for my monthly card class that was inspired from a card I saw on Pinterest.  My apologies, for the life of me, I cannot find the original designer.  I used our zip strips from our new exclusive Live Beautifully paper and the partner stamp to create this card.   




2.  Begin by inking and stamping Black Exclusive Ink on the smaller of the two rose stamps in the Live Beautifully Stamp Set.  With the VersaMat underneath for cushioning, firmly stamp the image onto scrap White Daisy cardstock.  Note:  the combination of firmly stamping the image and using the Versa Mat should help gain a clear, complete image.



3.  Ink and stamp the double leaf image with Whisper Exclusive ink on scrap White Daisy cardstock.


4.  Using the fine tip scissors, cut out the rose and leaves leaving a little of the white border showing.
Add 3-d foam to the back of both pieces and set aside.



5.  Cut a mask for the positioning of the sentiment.
 

6.  Stamp the sentiment with Black Exclusive Ink inside the mask.


7.  Remove the mask and the sentiment is in the correct positioning.


8.  Cut pieces of the Zip Strips and the smaller patterned paper from the Live Beautifully Paper pack.


9.  Cut each strip of paper at an angle and adhere to the card so that they overlap.  Note: the two vertical pieces - the Gold dot piece goes down first, followed by the pink and black chevron - are adhered first.  Next, horizontally adhere the black polka dot strip, then the purple patterned strip and finally the light pink ombre' piece on the top of the previous two pieces.


10.  Adhere the flower and leaves that previously had 3-d foam tape added to the backs.


11.  Add two clusters of Gold Gems in various sizes in a triangle shape - one to the upper left of the rose and the second to the lower right of the sentiment.


You can order all of these products on my website at: www.tonyasheridan.ctmh.com.  Note: the Live Beautifully paper pack and stamp set are only available during the month of May for National Scrapbooking Month.

Happy creating!
