Felicity, Another Look at CTMHs Papercrafting Collection

In this layout, I used the Imagine pattern Monologue...which calls for these circles at the corner of the pattern...I replaced them with pieces from one of the die cut papers...and I LOVE the look...what do you think?
My little men are so cute...and the Felicity collection beautifully highlights these photos.

Studio J - Mediterranean Cruise

We had an absolutely fabulous vacation last year on our Mediterranean Cruise...unfortunately, it took me a year to finish the album. I wish I could claim a valid excuse...but since I participated in a swap with 15 consultants who each created 2 layouts...I finished my vacation with 30 completed layouts.
It took me a year to pick my pictures. I will clarify that I took over 2,000 pictures on that many beautiful sights...I didn't want to miss my camera just kept snapping...but trying to narrow that down...way too hard! ;0) Then I had to select the pictures for the layout, get the sizes, order them, then figure out what pictures I had ordered for which layouts...then the easy part, putting them on the page.
Fortunately for me, during this process I was beta testing Studio J...and WOW!!! It was so nice to pick a picture, drop it on the page, swap if needed, rotate, adjust...whatever with just a click of a mouse! These 6 layouts were created on Studio J...1 of them by my daughter!
What do you think? I'm so excited and can't wait for everyone to experience Studio J!!!! (Don't forget, if you wanna have early access...just join CTMH and you can access Studio J as early as January and at a discounted rate!!!)

Felicity, Close to My Heart's National Papercrafting Month Collection

The Felicity collection features decorative die-cut paper, three gorgeous color schemes, and a D-size stamp set that include flowers, flourishes, argyle patterns, birds, and an entire alphabet! Your papercrafting possibilities are endless.
I love playing with this collection, it is so versatile and fun! I especially enjoy the die cut papers that work so beautifully as accents, full pages and on cards! Here's one of my Felicity layouts using our new family pictures!
In this layout, I used cocoa ribbon (Z1100), Basic Craft Buttons (Z1206), White Hemp (Z281), and pewter brads from the Metal Brad Assortment (Z1217) to complement the beautiful papers and add that extra little something. The flourishes are part of the beautiful stamp set included in the collection!
