Inspired by a book

This week over at Heart2Heart Challenges we are sharing projects inspired by a book.

My layout is about my family's love of reading.  When I was young we had no television (had one that got taken out by a lightning strike and my parents didn't replace it for years) so we did a lot of reading.  Then when all the kids were young Grandma read to them constantly.  I had the photo of Grandma reading to the girls already, so I waited for my chance to catch my oldest daughter and my dad reading to snap more pictures for my layout - a true scrapbooker, don't you think?

The layout is made from some very very retired Close To My Heart paper that was one of my favorites.  The flowers are made from crepe paper circles stretched to give the petals depth.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to share your book inspired projects with us here.

Technique Blog Hop - August, 2014

Welcome to a new year of blog hops featuring tips and techniques from the Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations Ideabook.  Each month we will share with you projects focused on a tip or technique found in the Ideabook.  If you don't have a copy of the new Ideabook yet...let me know, I will be happy to send you one!!
This month we are featuring the "All Lit Up" technique shown on page 88 of the book. It's amazing how a bit of glitter paper in your project brightens the entire look up!  If you are coming from Tonya's blog then you are on the right track!!  Be sure to visit all our designers blogs this month for some really great and glittery ideas!
For my card I chose to add the silver glitter paper (retired but beautiful) behind my snowflakes to add that sparkle that they have as they are falling from the sky!  The overlay for the card is cut from the Artbooking Cricut Cartridge at 5 1/4 inches.  It fits perfectly on this 6X6 card.  I added a bit of patterned paper from our Snowhaven Collection onto a base of the new Glacier card stock....I adore this black and glacier dotted piece of paper!!  The sentiment is from a new stamp set  Frosty Fun - it's got some really cute images for coloring that I can't wait to try out!!

Thanks for stopping hop on over to Shirley's blog to see what she has created for you!
