Well, here is a layout created with Close to my Heart papers that I pulled from my stash. I need to share something. When I started paper crafting I said to myself, "I will not have a stash...I will buy only what I need at the time and then use it up". Ha! So that didn't work out so well! I have recently separated my stash of paper into color groups and regularly turn to them to find "something old" to complement my pictures. Does that mean I don't buy new papers? Not a chance, but I am enjoying rediscovering the old!
I love the happy colors and design of the papers used for "Scenic Route". The title was cut with the Cricut using the Graphically Speaking cartridge. The arrows on the right side of the layout were cut with the Artbooking cartridge from Close to my Heart, stamped with the accompanying stamp set and glued to dimensional elements. Notice how the arrows allow your eye to walk through the layout...just like you are on a scenic route!
