Getting a Jump on Fall Scrapbooking

I know we are still in the thick of the summer heat, but I'm dreaming of cool, crisp Autumn days. It's my favorite season! I decided to use my July 4th week of vacation combing through my stash and using up fall paper packets. This is Olivia, a retired pack from Close To My Heart. My favorite part is the bronze shimmer trim!

I love bronze shimmer trim and am sorry to see it go at the end of the month. I will be grabbing a few rolls for sure. Check out all the retiring products here.

Joyful Stars July 2016 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Joyful Stars July 2016 Blog Hop. On the 10th of each month a group of Close To My Heart consultants and friends share artwork using some of our favorite products. This hop is a circle, so it doesn't matter if you are coming from Debi's blog, or if you start here on my blog. Just continue around until you're back at the blog you started on to make sure you see all the fabulous projects. The leader of the Joyful Stars team, Joyce, has the list of all our bloggers for the month. You may want to keep her blog open in a tab just in case you get lost along the way!

Last month I went away for a weekend retreat to the Hamburg Hideaway with some CTMH friends. One of the projects I worked on was the Simply Fundamental Scrapbooking Workshop. This was a special from Close To My Heart in November 2015 with the Enchanted Collection. I loved that workshop so much that I changed it up using the Whimsy color palette. This past week was my last of vacation before I start teaching summer camp. I spent some time printing pictures of my summer adventures so far and used these layouts.

All the supplies are retiring and while supplies last.

Fundamental Stickers Whimsy Pack

If you missed the Simple Fundamental Scrapbooking Workshop and would like to get a copy in pdf format leave me a comment and email (if I don't have it already). Thanks for hopping along this month. Your next stop is Betty's blog.
