It's a Stampaganza Blog Hop!

Hello friends!

I can't believe how long it has been since I wrote to you all last.  This year has been one of many ups and downs with lots of crazy turns along the way but I am so excited to be back and stamping and scrapbooking again.

July is Stampaganza at Close to My Heart which means now is the perfect time to order all those stamp sets you fell in love with when you were looking through the catalog!  Only during July, purchase any two stamp sets and get the third set of equal or lesser value free!  That is an incredible deal!  Also, remember when you spend $50 you get our Storybook Alphabet set, our July Stamp of the Month, for only $5!


So... What stamp set is your favorite from our current catalogs?  Right now, mine is the No Worries - Scrapbooking set. My family was extremely blessed to be able to take a cruise in May.  This was our first family vacation in several years so to say that I took several photos would be an understatement.  As I begin to go through the photos, I am also beginning to create my layouts for those photos.  Here is the first of many layouts I will create to help document our wonderful journey.

This is a simple layout so that my photos can take center stage as they should.  I did pop-up several of the stamped images to add depth to the layout.

Items used to create the layout were:

No Worries Paper Packet - X7220B
No Worries - Scrapbooking stamp set - D1718
Lagoon Ink - Z2895
Whisper Ink - Z2872
Gold Shimmer Trim - Z1985
Cricut Artbooking Collection - Z3169
Bitty Sparkles - Z1263

  1. Love the extra pop of color that you added.

  2. I love your layout, and might have to "lift" it to use for one of my cruises I've taken. OR save it for the Western Caribbean cruise we earn for CTMH's 2018 Incentive Trip, right?! Let's do it!
