Display Trays

I have been in a crafty mood! I wanted to share a post of the display tray I made.  I love the way it turned out! I kept it fairly simple to show that you don't have to go super elaborate.  


You could create your own display tray using any paper collection.  It took me about 20 mins start to finish.  I really had no idea what I was going to put in it, but if you plan it out then it will take less time to put it together.

We also have have a 5" x 7" Hinged Display Tray if you don't want something that's 12" x 12" or hanging on the wall. 
Hope you enjoyed this post and thanks for stopping by :)

Nevermore, like Never Before!

I absolutely love Halloween! I love the colors, the weather, pumpkin picking and of course, last but NOT least, ALL of the papers in our Nevermore collection!

Nevermore is the perfect paper to create Halloween gifts and layouts. One of the best things about these papers is there versatility! You can use these papers to create gifts, cards and layouts that are NOT Halloween themed specific!

A couple of months ago our team did a layout swap to prepare for the release of our new Annual Inspirations and Holiday Expressions.  I choose to do Nevermore (can you guess why?)! It would have been easy to create some Halloween themed layouts BUT where's the challenge in that! Besides some of my teammates wouldn't have a use for Halloween themed layouts!

Layout taken from Cherish Scrapbooking Program pages 70-71, Designers Eye

September was a huge month! Not only did we release our new Annual Inspirations AND Holiday Expressions catalogs but it was also National Stamping Month! Close To My Heart offered 3 different C-size stamp sets.  Each stamp set was designed to fit with a specific type of paper-crafting, whether that’s scrapbooking, cardmaking, or pocket scrapbooking. All the stamp sets coordinate with each other and can be used together to create dynamic artwork. These stamp sets also coordinate with shapes from the new Cricut® Artistry collection!  I choose to use all 3 stamp sets in my layout! Can you tell me how many stamps I used from the 3 sets?




Heat embossed using silver embossing powder


Embellishments used on this layout: Green Shimmer Trim, Silver Foil Tape, Whisper Thick Twine, Silver Sequins Assortment, and Grey Enamel Gems. 
Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad used on this layout: Whisper, Eggplant, Sunset, and Slate



I created a "matching" second layout, cause hey why not right! I made my layouts Birthday Themed but some what generic (and left off any titles) so that they could be used for any age Birthday or even Halloween if the recipient really wanted to (that's why I stuck with the Nevermore color palette). I wanted to give the recipient a chance to add their own personal touches as well.


I attended a Reveal Retreat for CTMH Consultants in July.  One of the projects we made was a Birthday Cake flip flap layout. I used this layout with some modifications for my Birthday Flip Flap layout. 

 Flip flaps are closed in the above picture. The 'cake stand' is a cut from the New Artistry Cricut Collection.

 Here you can see they are all 'open' showing the rest of the layout.  I wasn't sure if I wanted a title on the steampunk paper or a picture so I left the embellishments off the page.


I kept this page pretty simple as well.  I used some Green Shimmer Trim {Z3087}, Silver Foil Tape {Z3130} and Whisper Thick Twine {Z3095}.  The balloons are a cricut cut from the Artiste Collection.  Once I decide what pictures I want to use I can then further embellish the layout.  



Here is a video from Close To My Heart.  You can see all the artwork created that is Halloween themed as well as all the wonderful cards and layouts that are NOT Halloween themed!
