Sweetheart Layout using CTMH Paper

Thursday is here and yesterday was a mess here in Dallas--this winter has been crazy--

Here is a double page layout that the map was taken from the Imagine CTMH book and all the papers are CTMH Sweetheart Collection
Because I make a lot of layouts without pictures in mind I label the mats so I can remember what size photo to put on them.
My journal block is a stamp from the On This Day Stamp set (D1468) from CTMH that I heat embossed with Black embossing powder and simple black brads in the corners.
My title was cut using Tie the Knot Cricut Cartridge and I used MS glitter to make it bling--to complete the sweetheart I used one of the new epoxy stickers from CTMH--love these things
On the other half I wanted to add just a little somthing and I love these ribbon flags--I use these when I simply don't know what else to put.  Fold the ribbon in half poke the brad through and attach--if you like you can shape the ribbon tails.
Thanks for stopping by--Friday I will have a few more pics from the superbowl and from the Hall of Fame measurement meetings!
Make it a great one-


  1. Great layout!! I tend to do one page layouts and I really don't know why? I have lots and lots of photos, it's really NOT like I won't need a matching page most of the time.. thanks for the inspiration to think about 2 pagers :) I really really love those little ribbons...that is a great idea. A clever way to shrink the white space now and again..thanks for the tip. It has been a crazy winter.. I'm here in the Northeast and we have had soo much snow. It really is beautiful, but enuff is enuff.. LOL.

  2. Thanks for the tip about putting the photo size on your mats. I also Love the idea about the bits of ribbon flags. What a great idea to use up those little bits of ribbon that we love too much to throw out. I love the colors too. The black really makes the other elements pop.

  3. Great double LO! I LOVE the papers you used, it looks terrific!

  4. I especially like the Sweet with the glitter. Great idea marking the mats too. Great tips! Thanks!

  5. Great tip on labeling the mat sizes! Really enjoy your LO!

  6. Nice job Bryan! I really like that you can fit many pictures on these layouts.
