Family Time

It has been a while since I posted - sorry! But I have just returned from attending the annual Close To My Heart Convention in Salt Lake City! It was a fabulous week of meeting new people, making new friends, seeing what's coming out in the NEW Annual Inspirations catalogue on 1st August and some fantastic speakers. 

But I am still using what is available to us now from our current catalogues (even though I can't wait to get my hands on some of the new product). This month, the featured collection is Prickly Pear.

Check out these layouts and cards I have created using Prickly Pear.

This layout was the one I submitted for the Page Layout competition at convention, where the theme was "Who Tells Your Story?"
I used White Daisy & Black Cardstock, Prickly Pear Paper Pack & Complements, No Worries Paper Pack, Little Dreamer complements, Black Shimmer Ribbon, Artistry Cricut Cartridge, D1660 - Ink Blot Stamp Set, B1548 - Journaling Prompts Stamp Set, Black & Smoothie Ink Pads, Thin 3D Foam Tape, Glue Dots to create this page

This layout was Pinterest inspired and created using White Daisy, Sapphire & Sea Glass Cardstock, Prickly Pear Paper Pack, Prickly Pear Sequins, Z3338 - Prickly Pear Scrapbooking Stamp & Thin Cuts Set, Lemon, Sea Glass, Poppy, Emerald, Sorbet & Sapphire Ink Pads, Sponge Dauber, Micro Tip Scissors, Thin 3D Foam Tape, 3D Foam Tape. 

And this final layout, was inspired by a layout shared by Nell Ward - using Sea Glass, Sorbet & White Daisy Cardstock, Prickly Pear Paper Pack, Prickly Pear Sequins, Z3332 - Prickly Pear Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts Set, Z3338 - Prickly Pear Scrapbooking Stamp & Thin Cuts Set, Black Memento Ink Pad, ShinHan Markers,Sea Glass & Sorbet Ink Pads. When Nell shared this layout she showed it using several different paper packs with coordinating cardstock. They all looked so different! This is a layout I will be going back to! 

This card was inspired by Jacqueline Paech! I used scraps of Whimsy Fundamentals paper with Poppy and White Daisy Cardstock to create this card. And finished it with  Z3338 - Prickly Pear Scrapbooking Stamp & Thin Cuts, Water Colour Paints, Water Brush, Memento Black Ink Pad, Black Ink Pad.
