Candid Moments- A New Scrapbook Workshop From Close To My Heart

Project 1 Layout from Candid Moments

I love the colors in the Candid Moments Scrapbooking Workshop. The colors are soft enough and versatile enough to go with so many colors. The words "candid moments" leave the situations wide open, too! The beautiful and intricate die cuts provided add so much detail to the layouts, everyone will be impressed!

Scraping and Cardmaking In November 2021


You Can Scrap Lift From The Close To My heart Catalog!!!



This is a scrapbook layout for your fall pumpkin or fall color pictures. The Pumpkin Spice papers are perfect to highlight these pictures. I used the layout on page 9 of the Sept-Oct 2021 catalog as an inspiration. The Close To My Heart catalogs are full of great ideas to scrap lift.

Here Are Two Cards I Scrap Lifted From Our Catalog!!!


I'm showing you how to make 2 more autumn cards using my leftover Pumpkin Spice papers. I'm using the 2 cards shown on page 8 of the Sept-Oct seasonal catalog. They are examples of how you can use the Pumpkin Spice Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cut set.


This Is One Of The Layouts From The November Craft With Heart Scrapbook Subscription the November 


Cut Above kits give you a shortcut to beautiful artwork since they include pre-printed bases that you complete with die-cut shapes and stickers. So Fast So Easy! 2 four page layouts completed in 40 minutes!

Autumn Card Challenge Using A World With Octobers Stamp Set

I made a process video showing the A World With Octobers Stamp and Thin Cut set to make a card combining the Atlantic Hearts Card Sketch 444 and Color My Heart Color Dare 467 challenges. This is a slimline card with dimensions of 3 ½ x 8 1/2. The Sage cardstock is that size while the Sundance cardstock is 3 x 8. The pumpkins are cut in Papaya and Sundance cardstock.


Here is the process video:  


The supplies used to create this card:


Any item not linked is sold out, temporarily. The Thankful script die is discontinued now, but a "Thanks" Thin Cut set is available and has a wonderful shadow around it. There's also Woodland Friends Stamp & Thin Cuts that is a very sweet set that can be used to make friendship cards and it has a "Thankful" thin cut included with a wonderful script font. Either set would be a great substitute. I love the thickness of the Woodland Friends thankful, it would be easier to handle than the one I used.

Any gold loose sequins or self stick gems you have in your stash can be used to bling it up.

Thanks Thin Cuts
 



I enjoyed making this card and will be sending it out to a friend that is in need of a little cheer. Any of us can use a little cheer as the cooler weather starts rolling in!
