Three Amigos March Mini Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Three Amigos CTMH Mini-Blog Hop. We are three Close to My Heart Consultants with a love for Stamping and Scrapping and would like to share our creative ideas with you. Each month we are featuring a different CTMH product and create a card, layout or other project. There are only 3 stops on this hop so it will only take a few minutes to hop through.

Close to My Heart has some great new embossing folders that can be used with various embossing tools such as the Cuttlebug.  I used the Quatrefoil folder and embossed the hearts on my layout.  I cut out white hearts, embossed them and then inked them with Sweet Leaf and distressed them with Chocolate.  I love embossing because it adds dimension and sometimes it can be as simple as creating your own embellishments for your page or card.

I also used this May Stamp of the Month again.  When I first saw it in the book I didn't think I'd ever use it, but I've already used it twice.

The paper pack is Skylark and I used the scrapbooking Workshop on the Go to create the first three pages of my layout.  Below is a close-up of the embossed hearts.

Then for the remainder of my photos (because I take a lot) I used the Skylark Picture My Life kit.

The Picture My Life series is fantastic.  Each kit comes with photo pocket pages and inserts that coordinate with one of the fantastic CTMH paper packets.  The sentiment insert below came in the pack.  I cut four pieces of the Skylark paper and used them in the center sections.  There are so many different sentiments, journaling squares and just decorative pieces in each kit.  They can be used in the Picture My Life pocket pages or on regular scrapbook pages and cards.  The pocket pages come with both vertical and horizontal pockets in the 4x6 and 2x3 sizes.  More to come!

Thanks again for stopping by.  Now... hop on over to Donna's blog to see what she's created at
