Good Morning Spring Layout

I wish I could start out this post with a big Good Morning Spring! But the fact that I woke up this morning to snow on the rooftops kind’ve makes me think that winter is still here. So weird!

CTMH Good Morning Spring Gnomes Scrapbooking Layout

With the recent announcement that Close To My Heart will be shutting their doors after 40 years of creativity, I’m finding it hard to put Kits together for those of you that love them. In fact, this layout was going to be part of a kit but some of the products have already retired. Ugh. So I will just walk you through the process of this layout a bit.

The PROCESS:

I started out using the Gnomes for Springs Paper with Stickers and decided to do my best at mixing as much paper as possible. I even brought in some Lagoon Paper because I thought it mixed in very well. You can see it peeking out behind the clouds.

Then, I decided to go crazy with some Cricut Cuts. I just couldn’t help myself! The birds are so cute, don’t you think? As I started adhering them to the page the layout started to remind me of my oldest daughter, Stephanie. She is ALWAYS in a good mood (must get that from me! lol) and when she wakes up in the morning she always says, “Good Morning!” in such a sing-song way. I call her my sunshine and so of course I had to put all of those elements on the page, as well.

Unfortunately, the last time I looked the Alphabet Stamp Set had already went out of stock. Boo! But that doesn’t mean another font couldn’t be used, right?

I finished up the layout with some pink Acrylic Butterflies and Flowers. Added some Sparkles, including the beautiful Journey colored ones! A 4×6 Flip Flap was added for some hidden journaling, mainly because I didn’t leave room on the page for it – lol. A banner and some bling… now all that’s left is some pictures!
