I have been wanting to scrapbook some of my childhood photos for a long time and have not had the opportunity to do so. This year is that time. I have found the perfect paper packet- Chantilly!
I just LOVE the bright colors and happy patterns on this paper! The pretty dimensional elements and beautiful fabric covered buttons accessorize this paper perfectly. When you know everything coordinates it makes your layouts come together in a flash.
The pattern I used in this layout was from one of our HOW-TO books titled Magic. I used the Illusion pattern. Unfortunatley this book is no longer available in its hard cover form but we have three HOW-TO books that are available. I hope that it will soon be available probably in soft cover form. I just LOVE our HOW-TO books. Especially the new Make It From Your Heart. It features 16 two-page layouts and 12 card patterns. You get the cutting guides, lots of photos and detailed instructions. The patterns show you what size to cut the papers and how to arrange them on your base paper for perfect balance and eye catching layouts. There is always plenty of room to be creative too with your choice of paper and accessesories. I highly recommend this book!
Here are some close-ups of my layout for your viewing pleasure :)
Check back soon for more layouts with this paper packet and with the new boy-themed paper Later Sk8r
Happy Crafting! :)
