CTMH Olivia Extras

More playing with our Olivia Collection!!

Playing with our clear cards provides so many opportunities to experiment with layering, allowing hidden messages, and beautiful layers to express such beautiful art!

Convert an ordinary business envelope into an extradorinary card! How cool is this! Wish I could claim this awesome idea, but it was shared by friends at a crop!

CTMH Olivia 3x3 Mini Album

Yes, it's my favorite stamp set of late...The Present, I love that set! ;0) This is our adorable 3x3 Mini Album (Cream with Organdy ribbon Z1166) only $3.95 and so cute! I used our beautiful Olivia paper pack to create this mini album and the lil pages shown below!

Despite the name 3x3 mini-album, don't be fooled, these pages are actually a little bigger measuring at 3 1/8 x 3 1/4. This little book was embellished with our Foundry Flourishes Assortment (Z1331), Antiqued Copper Mini-Medley collection (Z1275), Opaques Pearl and Mocha Adhesive Gems (Z1336 & Z1333).

Who could you make this mini-album for?

CTMH Olivia Flip Flaps Layout

I absolutely love our Close to My Heart Memory Protectors Flip Flap collections! The 4x6 Flip Flaps are great for adding extra pictures to a layout (not to mention using them for mini-albums!) If you're like me, I take 100s of photos at events, then struggle to reduce them down to only a few on a page! Our 4x6 flip flaps allow you to keep your layout simple, while adding stacks of photos to a page!

Now, our NEW 12" Flip Flap Assortment (Z1325) allows you to expand your layouts whether you add only a 4" flap to the top or side of a layout, or add a complete layout on top of another like the layouts I've created can truly expand you pages to capture the entire story without feeling like going page after page to tell your story!
This layout is a compilation of photos from my boys "Pumpkin Patch"! So many pictures to capture the growth of their I created this interactive layout, which is actually the equivalent of 6 pages, but allows you to open the flaps to reveal the story inside!
If you look closely, you can see that the left page has a 4" and an 8" flip flap on the top/bottom of the layout allowing it to be opened up to reveal more of the story!

The flip flaps opened up to reveal this layout and the 2 sections shown!

Here is the right layout, using 2 of our 6" flip flap pages opening right and left.

From here I had still more pictures to capture, so added the 4x6 flip flaps to this page allowing me to keep the layout simple, while still including all these memory-catching photos on the layout!

You'll be amazed that the fabulous pricing of these adhesive-stripped Flip Flap collections!! The 12" Assortment (Z1325) comes complete with 4 - 6" protectors, 2 - 4" protectors and 2 - 8" protectors! So many layouts to create and expand all for ONLY $3.95!
Our 4x6 Flip Flaps (Z4114) come with 15 protectors, allowing the opportunity to expand layouts and create mini-albums for ONLY $3.95!!

CTMH Olivia Mix n Mingle

This is our NEW My Creations Mix n Mingle versatile as it can be used as an adorable 4x4 mini-album, banner, wall-hanging or used separately on scrapbook pages! What ideas can you come up with?

I used one of my new FAVORITE stamp sets, D1436 The Present. I love the sentiment: Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, Today is a Gift, That's Why We Call it the Present
Add the beautiful flourishes, flowers and leaves, this set is a keeper!

You can recreate this same project and replace the stamped images with photos to make a more personalized gift!
I've embellished this project with our Cocoa Grosgrain Ribbon (Z1100) and the new Foundry Flourishes Assortment (Z1331)
