A Happy Times Twist

The layouts in my previous post used only some of the patterns of the Happy Times paper packet.  I decided to remake the same layouts using other patterns and color scheme.

You may choose either color scheme for your kit.

2016 National Scrapbook Month

Celebrating National Scrapbooking Month with Close to my Heart means using our beautiful NSM papers, Happy Times!  This is a pack I fell in love with instantly!  

My layouts with these papers were actually designed for Close to my Heart by Tina Lovell.  They are so very pretty I decided not to reinvent the wheel this month and use her layouts for my June classes. Here they are:
Happy Times Layout #1
Happy Times Layout #2
Happy Times Layout #3
If anything appears black in the photos, it's my poor photography.  It's actually a shiny gold!

With the plethora of paper and other elements in these layouts, my class is $40 this month.  It includes everything you need except your adhesives and you'll have almost a half pack of papers remaining to create with.  

Sign up by May 31st for one of my classes to allow time for to order & receive your supplies. Classes are held in Union, KY.  betsygully@gmail.com

Class Dates
Wednesday, June 15th @ 6:30pm
Friday, June 17th @ 6:30pm   


Want the paper for free?  With every $60 you order on my website, excluding our currently 25% off albums, you receive one free pack of Happy Times papers!  But wait! There's more!  Available this month only we created this beautiful stamp set to coordinate with the Happy Times papers.  It's just $17.95!

I know, you are asking, "Betsy, what did you do with all that extra paper?"  Well I used a small portion of it to make these beautiful cards.  And I am going to keep right on creating more!  It's a great month in my craft oasis.  Lets just say I'm having "Happy Times!"

Pretty Penelope

I'm a tad little bit late with this post as this paper pack retires in just a day!  Nevertheless, I want to share what I've done with Penelope and give you a chance to sign up for my layouts class!

Penelope Layout 1
Penelope Layout 2
Penelope is so so springy!  Years of Easter egg hunts spring to mind when I see these papers and I am sure when I look I will find many unscrapped photos of my own kiddos to fill these two layouts with. But if you don't have any Easter photos to scrap, any photos will do! 

I'm offering this class on two dates in my home in Union, Kentucky.  Contact me via email to sign up prior to May 5th.  I will not be able to get the supplies after that date.  So do it now!  ;)

$25 reserves your spot and supplies for either date:

May 18th at 6:30pm or
May 20th at 6:30pm 

If you'd like to purchase and create on your own, you can find this kit on my webpage at betsy.ctmh.com until April 30th at 11:59pm Mountain time.

A Sip of Sangria

My next class of layouts features the luxurious rich colors of the Close to my Heart Sangria Paper Pack. Colors so rich you can almost taste them. Our newest colors are represented here, Eggplant, Pomegranate, & Poppy.

Layout One
I fell in love with these papers the moment I saw them.  To me they are reminiscent of traditional East India colors. 

Layout Two
Embellished with Sangria Complements, a variety of stickers, chipboard, and velum.

Layout Three
Although the colors remind me of the hottest part of the summer, the swirly leafy pattern also is perfect for autumn photos. I've added a Cricut cut border of leaves as an accent. 

Layout Four
And the last of my four 2-page layouts.  These are going to be perfect for some of my travel photos from this summer.  

Supplies needed for these pages:

X7199B - Sangria Paper Pack
Z3084 - Sangria Assortment

Z3094 - Poppy Thick Twine
G1097 - Sangria Workshop on the Go (Includes the above three items as well as the Sangria WOTG Stamp set
X7199C - Sangria Complements

Z2652 - Poppy Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad

Fall Kick-off with Zoe!

First day of fall has arrived and I'm still waiting for the weather to turn cool.  But for now remaining in the cool indoors and playing with paper and glue is my retreat from the heat.

Dipping my toes fingers into the first of our new paper packs I'm bringing you designs with Zoe. I'm trying to find the right words to describe these papers and both "bright" and "muted" come to mind. Now to try to make sense of that!

Zoe Layout #1
Zoe Layout - Left
Zoe Layout - Right
Zoe Detail
Zoe Detail

Zoe's colors are not shy. Neither do they overpower your photos.  Adding some shimmer trim gives them a solid pop of fun. These layouts will hold more of my photos from the Close to my Heart 2015 convention. 

Zoe Layout #2
Don't laugh but I am most excited about these grays.  Visiting the Lava Tube Caves on my Oregon trip, I took photos that will be amazing on these pages. As soon as I've printed them these will be filled and journaled.

Zoe Layout #2 - Left
Zoe Layout #2 - Right
Zoe Layout #2 Detail
I added a small amount of paper from our Nevermore Paper Pack to this layout. I love how well they work together.  You can get a glimpse of it in the lower right of this photo.

Classes are scheduled for these two layouts.  Leave a comment or contact me for more details prior to October 1st.

Supplies used:

X7197B - Zoe Paper pack
Z3088 - Coral Shimmer Trim
G1096 - Zoe Workshop On The Go (includes the paper pack, shimmer trim, stamps and full color instructions for 2 additional layouts)
X7197C - Zoe Complements
Z2013 - Silver Sequins
