“Chalk It Up” is a new collection of Close To My Heart products featuring great new paper patterns, stamps, accessories and even an awesome new Picture My Life Package. I decided to design this month’s Scrapbook Workshop pages from the Close To My Heart “Chalk It Up” Workshop On The Go Kit because you get some of all of these fantastic new pieces to work with. I had so much fun creating with all of these coordinating materials. The “Chalk It Up” Workshop On The Go Kit includes a fantastic stamp set with great journal boxes, a full set of number, cool titles, and fun accent images in addition to the terrific paper, accessories, and ribbon.
Here are the pages I designed with the Chalk It Up Workshop On The Go Kit. The first layout is actually made from the instruction guide that comes with the Kit. I made a couple of modifications, but the base is from the layout shown in the package.
With a new color combination, including the new color Flaxen, “Chalk It Up” is ideal for many different types of photo ops and storytelling. It has a school theme emphasis, however you can see in my scrapbook pages I did not do anything with school. If you have back-to-school photographs you are ready to scrapbook, “Chalk It Up” is perfect for those pictures. My kids are grown, but I love the colors, patterns, and accessories, so I just scrapbooked a fun day with Sophie, my Yellow Lab, and my daughter’s birthday. There is so much you can do with “Chalk It Up.”
These were fun pages to embellish along the way, too. I really like the new Striped Twill Ribbon and the fantastic accessories that come in the Kit. The Chalk It Up Accessories are puffy adhesive-backed stickers with all four colors of designs to choose from. With a sort of whimsical, sketchy feel to it, embellishing kind of felt like when you used to doodle on your Pee Chee folders and book covers. I really like the journal box stamp that looks like a composition book, as well. To tie it all together, I used a Black Journaling Pen to add some squiggly borders, doodles, and journaling throughout the layouts. So much fun.
The way Close To My Heart is able to package these Workshop On The Go Kits you not only get a bunch of great products, you also get a really great value. The cost of the Kit is only $29.95, however it comes with over $41 is products. That’s awesome!
You can make all three of these scrapbook layouts by attending one of my September Scrapbook Workshops or by ordering a Workshop Kit To Go. If you are in the Boise Area, check your calendar and reserve a date to come enjoy some create time. If you are not in the area, or the dates are not good for you, I am happy to put a Workshop Kit together and mail it to you.
