Welcome to the Close to My Heart Blog Boosters New Product Blog Hop.



I have been working on my son’s photos and I am up to his school photos (he is nearly 25 years old so I am catching up!) and this new Chalk It Up Reflections range is just perfect for these photos.

CTMH Chalk It Up layoutI have loosely used a pattern from the Make It From the Heart Volume 2 pattern 17 for this layout and added the numbers at the bottom from the Artbooking cartridge.  The notes pad has also been cut using the Artbooking cartridge.  I love the fact that the Sorbet cardstock has linked the now retired Balloon Ride papers to this paper range.

This is another layout that I have adapted from the Make It From the Heart Volume  1 – pattern 16.  I was fairly limited by the photos as these were professional photos taken at school and I have not been able to change them.  I have used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the shapes either side of the large photo and then embossed them using the Dots embossing folder.  The Lagoon colour was perfect to match the colours in the photos, and I love the new Flaxen base cardstock.  I am not sure what other embellishments I can put on the right hand page and will look at it for a while to see what I can do.  But sometimes less is more.

Materials used:

Cardstock – Lagoon, White Daisy, Sorbet, Flaxen

Paper – Chalk It Up

Embellishments – Chalk It Up Assortments, Chalk It Up Complements

Cricut Cartridges – Artbooking, Art Philosophy

Embossing Folder – Dots
