Here is the retired paper kit Flirty again. This time, I used it for my Autumn Family page. I love how the colors highlight the falls color in my photos. The fall leaves during this trip to Leavenworth were nothing like I had seen before. Brilliance!

For the past several summers, our family as done a week long mission trip to a camp in Canada. As the girls have gotten older, they have become more interested in the “right of passage” to jump off the “high” dock. The length of this jump depends on the tide.
In 2010, Marissa was ready to take the plunge, over, and over and over again.
This is the Flirty Paper packet from last fall. Although it had a fall feeling to its designs, it fit well with the summer colors of my photos. This page was easy to create using the Dimensional Element Chipboard shapes for embellishment and Artiste Font for the title.

The stamp set from the Chantilly Card Workshop on the Go can be used with a variety of paper packets. Here, I had a few left-over card bases cut from the holiday paper pack, Pear & Partridge. I added Juniper to the Sorbet and created this birthday card. I love how it turned out.
You can see the Chantilly Workshop on the Go here. When you purchase this kit, you get everything you need to cut and create 5 of 3 different designed cards. You add your inks and your blocks. Then, you can use the stamp set with other papers and color combinations for more birthday wishes.

More Chantilly and zipper lace. Cheryl also added the Chantilly textiles to create a ruffle under the zipper. Take a look below at the layout I created using the Hollyhock zipper lace.
These layouts were inspired by the Close to My Heart Idea book and Karen Pederson. I have since added photos from our Japan trip during the cherry blossom season. The pages are so nice. Need to get some photos of those and post them soon!
