Close to My Heart White Pines Christmas Layout

As soon as I saw this layout from the Close to My Heart White Pines scrapbooking kit, I knew I had to get it! It is just so gorgeous!

I love the stamp set that comes with this kit also - I plan to make some Christmas cards using it - isn't that "In the air tonight,there's a feeling of Christmas?" so pretty? And the holly with the berries? Swoon!
There were some cuts in the kit from the new Artistry Cricut cartridge which were quick and easy to do. 

I always forget how pretty cuts can be when you cut them super big! That's something they always do on HSN and then when I see it, I think, wow - gorgeous!
The White Pines Workshop on the Go kit comes with instructions to make 2 double page layouts with much left over to make additional layouts or cards.
Products Used:

Artistry Cricut Cartridge:
White Pines Workshop on the Go Scrapbooking Kit:

Fern and Cranberry Inks

One important thing to know is how to get all these pieces lined up properly.  Here are my secret weapons:

the Versamat:
and the Close to My Heart Ruler, which is 14" long.
What I do is tape down my base page using some washi tape or painters tape - just in the corners. Then, when I need to measure up and over to lay down any type of strips, I can use the ruler to lay it across the base page and then my strips of paper are all lined up nice and neat!

It works everytime! LOVE IT! Also, the Versamat has a padded side on the back to use as a stamping cushion.

The Versamat does require flat storage (not on its edge) - or it will bend. It's kind of like a show dog that way - needs special treatment!


Finally, check out the fabulous stamp of the month! I am working on a few projects with these stamps coming up next week!

  2. This is a gorgeous LO...and very practical as well allowing the photos to be front and center. Love your choice of embellishments and how you used them. The paper and color choice is also beautiful. Thanks for sharing and the tips of how to line up 2-page LOs.
