Seasonal Papers for your layouts!


With our new Seasonal Expressions out now Close To My Heart has an awesome post on their blog today ‘Make It From Your’ and it’s all about using the Seasonal papers for your everyday layouts.

Part of making sure the papers are absolutely perfect includes balancing themed patterns with non-themed patterns so you have as much versatility as possible when you sit down to create. You will see an example of three different page layouts on the Close To My Heart blog, all beautiful layouts using the Jeepers Creepers paper pack…Halloween themed, but you would never guess the papers on these layouts came from a Halloween paper pack!

I created the same layouts at our Adelaide Product Premier Event using the Jeepers Creepers paper pack and I just love my pages.

Lily Winter Page

Lily ~ 6 years old and she is growing up way to fast. We did so much in the July school holidays and this double page layout gives a snap shot of just some of the fun we had – memories made and saved on page! A fun embellishment on this page is the Racoon stamp from the  Woodlands Critters, one of our favourites.

Purple Love This Page

I love this page layout!
…with a hint of Pansy Cardstock popping out from under the photo mats and the ‘Hearts’ Thin Cuts sprinkled all over this page. The title is created with the Marker Alphabet Stamp Set and Black Archival Ink. So simple and sweet.

Paris Page

And this page layout is so cool with the orange and white striped paper!
I added a title cut from our NEWEST Cricut Collection “Flower Market” – it’s such a fun font to use…who would’ve thought a Halloween themed paper pack could look so good with Paris photos?
I used a splash/sprinkle of paint from our Water Colours Paints – I was stepping out of my comfort zone using this on my page layout (just ask the girls who came to my workshop last Saturday!) …I do love the finished effect on the page.
Why not try something new on your next page layout, it’s fun getting creative!
