A Taste of Summer in Autumn

May 24, 2015

Welcome back

This week I will be featuring a layout that I have done with the gorgeous bright and vibrant papers  A Taste of Summer that are part of the National Scrapbooking Month from CTMH.  We are just going into autumn in New Zealand and these papers are a lovely reminder that spring and summer are just a few months away.

At the last minute CTMH added a stamp set to match which has added to the fun.

Here is a layout that I have done for my workshop that will be at Gift Hutt on Sunday 31 May.

#CTMH A Taste of Summer

 

For this clean and fresh layout I have used pattern 11 from the Make It From Your Heart Volume 1 book.  I love how the Thistle and yellow Canary works so well together and the lemons go so well with all the colours.  The lemons have been stamped with Canary ink and then rolled around the edges with Sweet Leaf ink.  The leaves have been cut from the Art Philosophy cartridge in New England Ivy cardstock and I have crumpled them a little to make them look like leaves from a lemon tree.  The title has been cut from the Artbooking cartridge in Canary and shaded with Slate cardstock.  I have used strips of Paper Fundamentals thistle coloured paper to anchor the two pages together.  I love the journalling stamp from the Artbooking cartridge and have added it here to balance the layout.

Materials used:

Cardstock – White Daisy, Thistle, Canary, Slate, New England Ivy

Papers – A Taste of Summer, Paper Fundamentals

Stamps – A Taste of Summer

Inks – Canary, Thistle, Black, Sweet Leaf, New England Ivy

Cricut Cartridges – Artbooking, Art Philosophy

Topiary Ribbon

We will also be doing three cards and I have had a request to teach how to do the Bokeh technique which is very popular with the CTMH consultants at the moment.  This technique replicates the background created in photography when focusing on an object.  It is easy to do and the hardest part is working out which colours to use.  There are lots of tutorials on YouTube on how to do this technique.

#CTMH A Happy Hello

This card has been made using Flaxen, Sweet Leaf, Bamboo and White Daisy inks on the background and I have used the retired A Happy Hello stamp set as well as the Artfully Sent Just to Say stamp set for the flower and the sentiment.

#CTMH Paper Bird

For this card I have used Pixie, Thistle and Gyspsy inks with White Daisy pigment ink for the background.  The heart comes from the Hostess stamp set Paper Bird and I have used the rock and roll technique with Thistle and Gypsy inks.

#CTMH Paper Bird

For the last card for the workshop I have used Flaxen and Lagoon inks with White Daisy pigment ink.  The bird is from the Paper Bird stamp set and I have again used the rock and roll technique for the bird using Flaxen and Lagoon inks.

Here is another card that I have done using the same colours as the first card.  This time I have stamped the flowers from the Happy Autumn stamp set in Desert Sand ink onto the background and then trimmed the cards to make the three panels from the Make It From Your Heart Volume 2 book pattern 28.  I have backed the panels with Sweet Leaf cardstock and used the Flaxen coloured paper from the Paper Fundamentals for the trim across the card.  The tags are stamped in Flaxen ink using the Holiday Tags and Perfect Fit –  Frames 2 stamp sets.  I have finished off with a Flaxen coloured butterfly from the Junebug Puffies which is still available on the While Supplies Last tab.
