Sweet as Honey Scrapbook Layout

Hi there... Just wanted to share the scrapbook layout I put together using some brand new products from Close To My Heart's Spring/Summer Idea Book. I couldn't wait to play with the new Honeycomb Stamp Set {Yay for hexagons!} and the For Always Fabric Textiles. Yep, that's right Close To My Heart now has fabric. Isn't that cool?! Just another great way you can jazz up your paper creations.

I used these cute photos of our 2 youngest kiddos to decide the colors. I then stamped a ton of hexagons using the Honeycomb Stamp Set and then hand cut them all out. Yes, I actually had to go break out the scissors and cut them out. I get so spoiled by the Art Philosophy and Artiste Cricut Cartridges that I normally don't cut anything out anymore but it's actually really easy to cut these cause you just follow the edges. I then arranged all the hexagons on black cardstock with the 2 photos and then moved on to playing with the fabric. Yay! :) I cut about an inch strip and used my ATG gun to add two rows of adhesive down the left side of the page. I started on one end and just gathered the fabric to make it a bit pleated while placing it on the adhesive as I went along. I then took the new Black Shimmer Trim and put it along the edge.

For the title at the top I used a background stamp (it's retired) with green ink on white paper and then stamped "Sweet as Honey" from the Honeycomb set in Black to make it pop. I did the same thing with the fabric and shimmer trim under the title and then jazzed it up with some new CTMH Black Buttons. Aren't they fun? So sparkly! I had some green sparkles (rhinestones) on hand so I covered up the button holes with a green sparkle. And lastly I just added a black sparkle to some of the green hexagons. Viola!

I keep linking back over to this one from my blog. :) I must have left all my love for your layout over on Facebook! Well, I LOVE it sooooo much. The idea to take a pop of color from the pics to use with the hexies is fab indeed! Thanks for all the inspiration, Mandy!
