Two more days till goodbye to Hello Lovely....

I have not blogged much this year but I have been enjoying crafting with ladies from Friendship International using fantastic Close To My Heart products, especially Hello Lovely paper. We have been using this paper to recreate some of the layouts from the second volume of Make It From the Heart How To Book. This paper pack and Workshop Your Way are retiring in 2 days so order them now if you want to make some of these great layouts for yourself.



















So remember this weekend is the last time to order from the current seasonal catalog, but a brand new one will go live on Monday!  Contact me for your copy!
Always, Alayne

The 3"x 4" flip flaps make adding extra pictures to Picture My Life layouts fast and easy.
What a great way to make the pages interactive for kids!

Water Color backgrounds.....

Do you want to make some fun background papers for your layout? Try using our water colors to add interesting and unique bases. I used Close To My Heart water color paper and water brush to add color randomly. I used an ink blot stamp set on the water color paper after it air dried. ( The colors I used were poppy and saddle for the stamping layer.)







My inspiration for this page was a layout in the Annual Inspiration Idea Book p.140.
The triangle background was cut from ARTISTRY cricut cartridge.
I added die cut Koalas and the layout will be finished when I add a title, but that won't happen till I return to the USA and have use of my sweet cricut again.

Magical Paper Pack and Workshop Your Way Prep!






I started playing with this fun paper by finishing a layout we did at leadership training in Melbourne the last of April. I then adapted the Workshop Your Way by changing the zip strip on the top of one of the layouts.  I am still designing the third layout because I don't feel the polka dots fit my pictures I am currently using. I complete these layouts and post them under the comment section here. On the Workshop Your Way link you will find a FREE download of this workshop that will give you information to use your Magical Paper Pack. Adapt it to your pictures and taste and post it here!

Time is running out for Happy TImes! Act Quickly!

Free Paper Kit with qualifying order is a timely offer that is running out  very soon!  I am posting the pics I made using this sweet kit to encourage you to get in on this deal before June starts.  Remember there is a free PDF I can send you that gives step by step info on how to cut and put together these fantastic layouts. 


Gold watercolor PML cards were used in a unique way with this project. I loved how the cards showed the ink so well and made great titles. 
Remember the Happy Times stamp set that goes so great with this free paper pack offer is also only available in the month of May 2016. So please order it now if you want to get it.
