Have I ever said that I love being a Close to My Heart Consultant?
One of the reasons I love being a Consultant is that I have lots of scrapbooking products within reach. I don't have to travel to one of my neighborhood craft stores when I get in the mood to be crafty.
When I saw these pictures, I knew that I had the perfect paper and embellishments to showcase them. Here is my layout.
The story behind this layout is Tweet was a sparrow and fell out of its nest and was raised by a little girl. She let the bird go when it got older, but it would come back to the little girl whenever she came outside of her house.
I used the now retired Close to My Heart Skylark paper pack, complements and embellishments. I took the bird from the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Collection and "hid" the wing that would normally be cut out. I love being able to do that with my Cricut Explore! Then I used the Close to My Heart Artbooking Collection font to spell out Tweet. I welded the bird to the top of Tweet so my cute little bird is perched on top of the "T".
I cut Tweet out twice. Once in Lagoon cardstock and once in Desert Sand cardstock. I layered the Lagoon on top of the Desert Sand, but then shifted it slightly so my title has dimension and looks like it is distressed.
I love the blue and green colors and I added a lot of embellishments. The words at the bottom came from the decorative zip strip from the top of one of the 12" x 12" patterned papers. I added some mini staples as embellishment on the ends of the zip strip.
