Close to My Heart really LOVES to do these things in a BIG way. So this being held in Texas is really appropriate!
They are holding a contest called "Lasso a Stamp Set!" The card you see in the center of my layout is a die-cut postcard they sent to incorporate into our submission. If my layout is chosen, I can win a new stamp set of my choice from the brand new Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book!
For this project, I used our Dotty for You paper pack which is being offered this month for National Scrapbooking Month. The colors were just perfect! I used a number of different stamp sets on this layout: Art Philosophy Seasons, Instant Memories, Hooray Bouquet, Love Life, and the stamp sets in the Workshops on the Go for Lucy and Cruisin'.
I used our fabulous Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge for the rest of the layout. I cut the tags on page 70, E10, < Tag5 > at 2". The stars were on page 40, shift, < Star5 > at 1 3/4" and 2". The mat behind the die-cut postcard can be found on page 62, E2, < Oval5 > at 6 1/2". The letters and the numbers were cut at 1 1/2". I used our Dimensional Elements Notable Alphabet which coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge. I edged the letters with Lagoon ink to make them "pop" a little more.
Finally, I used some of our Natural Hemp to "lasso" the postcard.
This project really made me realize how much I miss scrapbooking and I definitely plan on making more layouts.
Can't wait for Convention!
Only left until Convention 2012 in Dallas, Texas!
I’ll be craftin’ 9 to 5 at Convention! Join me at the party of the year!
