Another Workshop Your Way kit – 3 more double paged layouts – and 20 more pictures on pages. I’ve mentioned several times that I wasn’t sure how to mix these sweet sugary papers with my rough & tumble boys – but I’m so glad I didn’t just dismiss them. While looking through my pictures to see if anything would work – I found several of my son making cookies and candy.
The ‘Hugs & Kisses’ title inspired me to use these pictures of my son & mom making candy – particularly the picture where he’s giving her a kiss.
I also found these pictures from Easter 2005 – my son happened to be wearing a burgundy coat which matched pretty well with the pomegranate papers in this layout.
This was the layout I struggled with the most – all that pink!! Don’t get me wrong – it’s cute – but the pink didn’t really flow with my pictures. Thankfully, CTMH B&T Duo’s have patterns on both sides. The opposite side to the pink was this grey with diamonds. Then, I also needed to make some changes where the original used Whisper card stock. I used the the Seaglass patterned paper (the backside to the base pages in the 1st layout) to replace the Whisper matte and I swapped out the dovetailed flag on the top left with a pomegranate piece. The Seaglass patterned paper came from an additional paper pack. If you didn’t want to purchase another pack – there is enough leftover White Daisy you could cut the mat and then ink the edges to create that contrast.

This WYW kit comes with the Sugar Rush My Reflections Paper Packet, extra cardstsock in Whisper (1) and White Daisy (3), a package of Sugar Rush Dots, Sugar Rush Complements, and Sugar Rush Washi pack.
You can find these products & the cutting guide online at gerri.closetomyheart.com until 30 April 2017 – or I will keep the cutting guide posted on my Facebook VIP Group – look under files and they are by Year/Date based on the featured paper month (Sugar Rush is featured in January 2017 – so all Sugar Rush files start with 1701) – don’t worry, they also have Sugar Rush in the title!
PS – I’m also running a contest through 31 January – find the post in my group page – then post a picture of your completed craft project – bonus points if you use Sugar Rush or the Welcome Home Wreath Kit!
