Time for some Fresh Air!

Summer Brings "Fresh Air"

Camping, hiking, nature, picnics...

There's no better paper collection to capture summer memories than CTMH Fresh Air.
Join me the month of July for my tour of papercrafts created with this "fresh" collection. Some of my favorite features are the copper metallic accents on the Complements, the sayings on one of the paper designs, how beautifully the Mini Stapler and 
Cricut "You Are Here" pairs with this collection. 
First up is one of my own 2 page Scrapbook Layout Designs:
The triangle "word" pieces are a 10x10 cut on the diagonal.
Cut out a few of the words you prefer from your scraps, matte them on cardstock for stability, and then pop them with foam tape for some fun dimension.
Some of the Copper Accents are cut from bigger images of the Complements.
All pieces except Copper Complements are ink distressed.
The Mini Stapler is an awesome addition to this rustic layout. Staple away!

The copper triangle top left matte is cut from one of the larger Complements.
Triangle under "good therapy" also cut from larger Complement.
Notice the sayings that were cut from pieces of scrap paper, mounted on CS then popped.

*Tip on adding Sequins to your pages and cards. I always remove the small glue dot they come on with my Piercing Tool and attach them to my project instead with a dot of
Liquid Glass. I have found this to be well worth the time for much better adhesion over the long term.
