A Scrapbooking Sugar Rush

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.

scrapbook-wywThis 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!

Enjoy!
