Taste Of Summer - National Scrapbooking Month 2015

May is a great month because its a whole month of celebrations with a special May only Paper Pack and Stamp set called "Taste of Summer". All month long the Close to My Heart Facebook Page, Instagram and Pinterest accounts are all being bombarded with ideas using the Taste of Summer ideas and you can search using the hashtag #CTMHTOS in all the social media arenas. 


To celebrate National Scrapbooking Month I attended a 2 night camp at Swanleigh in the Swan Valley with a group of consultants and a whole bunch of our customers. I had a great weekend and spent a lot of time organising my stamps and papers and labelling EVERYTHING... Yes I think I was the only person who went to scrapbooking camp with my label maker but I felt happier having things all organised. I also made a lot of other ideas for future blog posts.

After I got organised I completed a lot of ideas that I had not finished. The above picture - was a page that my upline had cut for us at our last consultant training day but I had not got around to finishing it. So camp was the perfect opportunity to complete it for us. This used the orange paper from the using the Taste of Summer Paper Pack. The Orange Stamp from the the Taste of Summer Stamp set. The oranges are Goldrush Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad and Sunset Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad (some are double stamped to get that lighter shade) and the vines with Topiary Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad. 
I'm pretty sure the paper is 12" X 12" Sunset Cardstock and I think the green is 12" X 12" Topiary Cardstock - I'm saying "I think" because I didn't cut out the card it was cut for me. 12" X 12" White Daisy Cardstock was cut to go on top. 

This is one of my cards I made using the Taste of Summer Paper Pack. With the Taste of Summer Stamp set. How cute is that strawberry. I used the Hollyhock Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad for the strawberries with Topiary Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pad for the leaves and sentiment. I cut the Silver Shimmer Trim in half on my SureCut™ Deluxe Craft Paper Trimmer using Washi tape to secure it. I used the heart cut with the Cricut® Artiste Collection and 12" X 12" Pixie Cardstock.

It is great value for a paper pack for only $12.95. Go to my website to order your pack and you can get it delivered directly to your door.
