CTMH Artbooking: Today is a Good Day

This layout was a great opportunity to capture the beautiful day we spent celebrating Mothers Day!  It was a gorgeous day and we enjoyed exploring the shops of Gruene, Texas, topped with a fabulous meal at the Grist Mill, yummm!

The Album Retreat version of this layout used floral stamps to random-stamp behind the chevron overlay.  I’m not much of a floral print kinda gal, so I switched it up and grabbed a different stamp set to play with…opted for the arrows!

Notice the Bronze Shimmer Trim…it adds just the right pop to give all these neutral colors a little zing!

Stamp Set: C1561 One-WayBorders
Cardstock colors:  Desert Sand, Colonial White, Honey,
                                       Goldrush and Outdoor Denim
B&T Patterned Papers:  Sarita (Outdoor Denim dots)

·  Randomly stamp the base cardstock to create unique patterns
·  Use Cricut® Craft Room to adhere letters together and size them smaller for a longer title
·  Use the negative pieces of the overlay to create a border on the journaling tag
·  Combine multiple overlays cut into pieces for added dimension
·  Layer different colors of cardstock under the overlay to add detail to the background
·  Sponge over cork shapes to color them
·  Use 3-D foam tape to make photos stand out
