"Live Beautifully" Australasian Blog Hop

This month is National Scrapbooking Month and Close to My Heart are celebrating with a gorgeous "Live Beautifully" Paper pack ($23) and stamp set ($27) and the "Live Beautifully" Cut Above Kit (5 double page layouts with page protectors for only $68.50!) This is a GREAT month for those new to scrapbooking to scoop up a bargain with the Live Beautifully Album Kit - a grey or black album, cut above pages and protectors, a black pen and a tape runner all for only $103.95! If you have photos on your phone and not printed, or if you have never scrapbooked before, then this is the month to make those memories shine!

If you have arrived here from Kara's blog then welcome.  Welcome back to all of my regular readers too.

Most of us will be running special National Scrapbooking Month workshops this month so contact your consultant to find out more!

These first few layouts are from the Cut Above kit.  The last one I really mixed it up a bit by using some of the "No Worries" complements and paper to give it a beach theme.

This one was done using the Live Beautifully Paper Pack:

 This one is based on a layout by Jo Armstrong (a very talented Kiwi consultant) - the champagne ink was just the right colour to match my cream coloured wedding dress. Great to finally get these 14 year old photos scrapped!

I also wanted to show you that this paper pack is not just great for formal/girly/love photos.  This ombre Seaglass paper was perfect with a little bit of Whimsy fundamentals to create a super quick layout for my son.

Then these are two simple cards I taught my customers this month - both using the Live Beautifully Stamp set (one with some scraps from my big organiser full of paper scraps, Cranberry and Fern ink and the other with Sea Glass ink and the black floral paper with the ombre seaglass paper from the Live Beautifully Paper Pack.

Both designs took inspiration from my fabulous friend Jacquie Paech.

So many talented consultants have done stunning work with this beautiful collection!
