CTMH Australasian Bloom With Grace Blog Hop

Hello and welcome aboard our Bloom With Grace Australasian Close to My Heart Blog Hop. 

If you have arrived here from Passionate About Pages then you are in the right place. 

If you landed here by accident, no problem, please join in by following the link at the end of this post. 

Today I would like to share with you a couple of creations which features Close To My Heart’s Featured collection Bloom With Grace.

Bloom with Grace paper collection lends itself well to Flowers, Autumn or Halloween photos and many more.

There are pumpkins, sunflowers, leaves and with the introduction of the new colours, Sundance, Cinnamon,and Desert Rose the possibilities for this paper collection are countless.

For my scrapbook layouts, I got my inspiration from Pinterest and these layouts are quick and easy to put together.

I like to scrapbook quickly as sometimes I am time poor (as we all are these days đŸ˜‰ ).

For this blog hop, I decided to create 2 different layouts using an Autumn theme.

I used the photos of my youngest son at Easter in 2014 because in Australia, Easter is in the Autumn.

For me, in my scrapbooking, I like to add photos and make the new paper collections work for the photos I want to scrap.

Bloom with Grace Layout 1

Firstly, I drew a circle as guideline using my Cricut Maker however the same can be achieved using a compass or a dinner plate.

Then I started cutting out 2″ x 2″ squares from the B&T paper and included some cardstock as well to break up all the patterns.

My title “So Beautiful” was also cut using my Cricut Maker as was the flower cluster and I added some glitter gems for a bit of “something, something”.

Bloom with Grace Layout 2

I again used my Cricut Maker to cut out the sunflower and stars but this time I decided to use the Classic Alphabet Thin Cuts for my title “Shine”.

The idea for my title came from the sticker sheet of Bloom with Grace.

The small strips were dove tailed to add some visual dimension.

Feel free to use these scrapbook layouts designs in your own scrapbooking.
