Creatively Redeeming Treasures Team Blog Hop August 2013

"Welcome to the Creatively Redeeming Treasures Team Blog Hop if you are coming from Elizabeth Mindemann's Blog you are in the right place! If you are just stopping by, feel free to follow the links and hop the whole way through and see everyone's artwork. This is the third month that we have been doing this Hop and it has been a lot of fun and keeps me motivated to try new ideas! We will be doing this Hop every month on the 19th so make sure to scribe to my blog so that you won't miss any of the great projects!

This month we are introducing the Babycakes Paper Packet. I wasn't real excited about the packet until I started playing around with it. I used Close To My Heart's (CTMH) Reflections® Scrapbook Program for the layout and I really love the way it came out. You can find the recipe for this layout on pages 34 and 35. Such a great book when your own creativety isn't flowing. I go to it all of the time and use the suggested Companion Layouts for multiple-page layouts.
I also experimented with CTMH's Memory Protectors® Flip Flaps™! That was fun and a great way to add more pictures to the layout. I used the badge buttons from the Babycakes Assortment pack on the Flip Flap to add further interest.
I also used the Bronze Shimmer Trim and made a bow with it and attached another one of the badge buttons as suggested in the Workshops On The Go® Babycakes Scrapbooking Kit layout. Love the way this compliments the page and adds just a little sparkle!
The "It's Aboout to get wild Around Here!" sentiment is from the Wild Wonders stamp set as it the ivy trim. This is such a fun stamp set and coordinates perfectly with the Cricut® Artbooking Collection as a matter of fact there is a great stamp that goes with the giraffe that I cut out with this cartridge! You will see that in the card that I am showing a little later in this post.
The stamps in these two images are included in the Workshops On The Go® Babycakes ScrapbookingKit. First I cut out the shapes using the same cartridge, stamped the images in Chocolate and Sunset ink. I then cut a larger shape for the Fresh From HEAVEN stamp on Sunset cardstock and mounted the image on that. I attached that with 3D foam tape. I cut a slit in the Lagoon cardstock and made a pocket for the journaling tag. I also adhered some of the square Bitty Sparkles.
I also created this card with the paper pack, badge buttons and Artbooking cartridge. As you can see, I cut the giraffe and then stamped it with the Wild Wonders stamp set as mentioned above.  In both projects I used the following Exclusive inks:  Buttercup, Sunset, Lagoon, Slate and Chocolate.

If you have any questions about how I put this together, please leave a comment. OR leave a comment just to say HELLO. I love reading your comments.
