In May, Rick and I traveled to Oahu, Hawaii for a 6 day vacation that I earned with Close To My Heart. These great vacations are earned because YOU continue to support me each month, season or year with your purchases. So, THANK YOU for your loyalty and patronage that enables Rick and I to enjoy these fabulous vacations! I thought I would share some visual ‘blank layouts’ and NOW .. with photos. I hope you enjoy the show!
Below is using 4 pages (out of 6) of HOPSCOTCH ( the Kit of the Month is RETIRED and I have only a few left kits ($39) in inventory). I used Studio J for printing out the photos to these exact sizes so all I had to do is cut them apart and fill in. I ended up adding one ‘sunburst’ to the original page. I really enjoyed celebrating my birthday in Hawaii!
The colors were perfect for Hawaii and who would have thought I would be using them this quickly? We created these pages in the early Spring … so it was great to add my photos (yep, using Studio J for photo development):
Do you recognize this paper? It’s Seaside and is being RETIRED this month of August. I made the layouts last Aug. 2014 for out Seaside Kit of the Month Club … and ta da .. using them for Hawaii:
On the above, right side, I moved one of the photo mats up so I could add this adorable 4×6 postcard (made out of thin wood and a gift from CTMH). My own layout will be adding a 4×4 flip flap to the front one of these 4×4 photos.
How can one not RELAX in Hawaii?! Love this layout and was able to add my photos too:
I really love this layout! It’s lagoon, colonial white, kraft and cocoa cardstock. The printed strip is from Hopscotch. The stamping is two toned: I stamped the alphabet letters in glacier blue and then sponged desert sand along the top and bottom and stamped on the paper. I love this look!
Have you ever seen the CTMH quick video on how to cut the circle out of photo to be exactly the right size and where you want it to cut? If not, click here to view it. Love it!
Here’s another FUN layout using flaxen, colonial white, sunset cardstock. The Kraft borders are an older product that we used to sell and I love these! The pattern paper .. again … Hopscotch! So versatile! Love the 5×7 photos and I could have added a 3×3 flip flap … always an option.
Ever take photos of sunsets? Here’s a great layout that really brings out the photo and who would have thought the kraft cardstock would be a neutral that helped the color pop rather than darken it? The pattern below is from the how to booklet, Make It from Your Heart Vol. 1, pattern 9. (Many of the layouts are from our How To books/programs.)

Have a great summer and I hope to see you soon at the upcoming events in the Fall!
