These are pictures of my kids and some family (Grandpa) at Old Fort Park last year to celebrate Granny B's birthday! The kids had a blast swinging and climbing on all of the park toys there. I chose these pictures mostly because Jake's shirt is similar to the Goldrush color and the trees and the sky match the Topiary and Heavenly Blue of the layout. I think it turned out great!
I love the border stamp that came with this collection. I just stamped around the photos about 1/2 an inch out and it changes the whole look of the page.
I also am loving these new dimensional elements that CTMH brought to the table this Summer. The collection is called Pizzazz and it is full of flowers and leaves and brackets and circles. The choices are endless. Each chipboard piece comes white and you can take a sponge dauber and ink of your choice and ink right over it. The "irresistables" part stays white and makes the inage look like a stencil.
This might be hard to see on here but I took some of CTMH's new Glitz Glitter Glue and went over each Honey colored brad and then let it dry. It adds a nice flair to the page. These pages didnt use a lot of paper so it needed something to make it stand out in my opinion.
Here you can see on the upper left some more of the Pizzazz elements that I colored and layered. You can also see the glitz glue used around the border of the square Goldrush piece of cardstock as well as over the stamped image. I like the way the image that was stamped still shows through the glitter.
This was a stamp on stamp layered element that I did. I stamped the original flower design in Goldrush and then took a smaller design flower and stamped over the Goldrush image while using Chocolate ink. I then colored a Pizzazz elements with chocolate and added the Glitz Glue to that and layered them all on the cloud paper. So easy to do!
This picture of my daughter was dark, but I really wanted it in the layout. So I decided to use one of the bracket Pizzazz elements and color it chocolate and then put it right over the part of the picture that I want to emphasize. It really helped make using a dark picture in an otherwise sunny layout.
I really loved this month's crop pages. If there is anything on these pages that you would like to order for yourself please send me a message and I will get it for you. CTMH makes everything so easy!!
