CTMH Scrapbook Layout Featuring Claire Paper Packet

Alas, I have to work the Michaels Crop this afternoon, but before I headed out, I wanted to create something.  Not having much time, I needed to do something quick and simple and yet did my pictures justice.  This is what I love about Close To My Heart.  Everything coordinates...the stamps, the papers and the embellishments.  One of the new tag lines for CTMH is Rediscover Scrapbooking and that is just what I intend to do.
I was able to make this layout very quickly but it does include several techniques and elements.  I've tone on tone stamped in the corners and added just a touch of Prisma Glitter for some bling.  I also tone on tone random stamped the hollyhock strip down the middle for just a little movement.  And, I sponged all the card stock edges for depth.  The title was made using CTMH self adhesive Felt Letters.  Quick, easy and yet still celebrates the magic of Disney at night.
Just a quick list of the CTMH products I used...
Champagne, Blush and Hollyhock Card Stock
Hollyhock, Pacifica and Champagne Inks
Blue Sparkles
Prisma Glitter
Pacifica Mini-Medleys (retired)
Pacifica Felt Letters (retired)
Rock The Block Stamp Set (Retired)
May 2013  Stamp of the Month
I purposely used some retired products not to frustrate you if you liked them, but to show you that even though a product may be retired, it is still usable and coordinates beautifully with the current product.  When CTMH retires a product, they always seem to come out with something new that is even bigger and better.
Stop by my website to see the Claire paper packet along with all of the other fun products.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
