June Crop Club

For my June Crop Club, we made three layouts using the same page sketch from Noreen Smith and our CM Hello Baby Boy Paper Pack.  The CM Mint ABC/123 Stickers and some solid cardstock completed the pages.  If you would like to purchase the materials with instructions to make these pages or attend my Crop Club, please contact me.

The faux chevron border on this layout was made by cutting 2″ squares in half diagonally and arranging as shown.  Additional clouds were punched with our Word Bubble Punch.

To make the border, use our Original Border Maker with Chevron Cartridge to punch two borders from royal blue cardstock.  Cut the border in half to make the feather-like strips.

The borders on this page were punched with our Original Border Maker with the Crown Cartridge.

 

One Layout Done 3 Ways

One layout done three ways! That’s what my Crop Club is all about! At my monthly Crop Club, we use one layout sketch and one pack of paper to make three different layouts. At each session, you’ll learn a new technique and use our newest tools. The fee includes all materials – you just bring a basic tool kit. A special thanks goes to my friend, Noreen Smith, who shares her layout sketches.

For this example, I used paper from our CM Hello Baby Boy and Watercolor Love Paper Packs and embellishments from our Watercolor Love and Pastel 2 Embellishments.  Using the same layout sketch, we made the following three layouts at my first Crop Club using our Hello Baby Girl Paper Pack and some additional sheets of cardstock.

The fancy border was punched with our new Decorative Arcs Punch.  The flowers were made by folding and cutting circles.  See the CM Blog for a video instruction on how to make the flowers.

The cute borders were punched with our Original Border Maker System with our new Button Cartridge.  The strawberries are heart punch outs.

The borders were punched with our Original Border Maker with our new Chevron Cartridge.  I love how the three layouts are made from the same paper pack but have very different looks.  Although these were made with our Hello Baby Girl Paper Pack, they are not baby pages.  (The designs on the backsides of some of these sheets are very cute baby motifs.)

 

 

New Hello Baby Collections

Last month, CM introduced our new Hello Baby Girl and Hello Baby Boy Collections.  Each collection features a beautiful embossed Fast 2 Fabulous Album, pre-designed album pages, a Slide-In Pack, a Paper Pack, and Stickers.  And there’s also an Embellishment pack that coordinates with both collections.  To compliment all of this cuteness, a new Button Chain Border Maker Cartridge was also released.  On April 29th, I was the guest blogger on the CM Blog.  Here are two page layouts that I created for my post about using the baby papers and fun color combos for non-baby pages.  To see the entire blog post with more page layouts and instructions, please click on the Idea Tab on my CM website.  If you love what you see, please leave me a comment!
