Wow! A Rare Layout!

I am so bad about sitting down and creating layouts. I think it is because I am so “meticulous” and it takes me forever to complete one. Of course, the fact that I am overwhelmed with just about every product Close to My Heart sells wouldn’t be part of the problem, would it???? That’s why I was thrilled when CTMH offered the Tickled Pink scrapbooking kit as the special a few months ago—I do better when I limit my supplies and I love getting an idea from somewhere else and putting my own twist on it.

And for once, I actually got the special ahead of time and made up a sample for my customers. They loved it, and I did sell quite a few of these kits the month they were offered. Of course, it’s taken me until now to post it here, but better late than never, right??? Now I just need to make the other layouts from the kit!


supplies used (all CTMH, unless noted):

  • Tickled Pink scrapbooking kit
  • I Am stamp set from above kit
  • Sans Alphabet stamp set
  • Journaling Jots stamp set
  • Tiny Typewriter stamp set
  • Bigger brads—key lime
  • Mini-Medleys—Autumn Garden
  • Clear Sparkles

colors: blush, hollyhock, sweet leaf, twilight

size: 12”x12” two-page layout

idea from: Tickled Pink scrapbooking kit guide

note: My pictures were not the same size as suggested in the guide, so I added the decorative border underneath the photos. Then to balance that out, I added the extra narrow pink strips. I also changed my background cardstock from white daisy to sweet leaf and added a few extra embellishments.

You need to do more layouts! This one is beautiful. I love the variations. I have such a hard time thinking outside the instructions.
