Magical May - Heart 2 Heart Scrapbook Challenge!

Each month at Heart 2 Heart Challenges we have a challenge geared just towards scrapbooking (our other challenges can be any type of paper craft or home decor using paper) but this one is a good old fashion Scrapbook Challenge. This months theme is Magical May. 

For this challenge there are a few rules / challenges:

  • Layout(s) must be 12 X 12. 
  • Create your background papers using CTMH stamps. This can be your background page, a photo mat, layered strips, even flags, something must be random stamped and we must be able to see the design. 
  • Your layout must feature at least one picture. 

For the Magical theme, it can be anything at all, something Magical that has happened in your life, a Magical day, trip, event, anything really, just as long as it is magical to you!

For my layout, I chose to do something very magical to my girls, our Elf Helper Stacey. Stacey joined our family in 2012 and the girls instantly fell in love with her. They loved seeing the different things she would do each night and would fight to see who would find her new hiding place first. For our three little ones, Stacey is truly magical!

Now, remember there were some rules / challenges to this. Background paper, check! If you look under the picture of Stacey telling the girls there are only 5 more days until Santa comes you can see that I stamped Ho Ho Ho in Ruby ink on the Ruby card stock. I have obviously used at least 1 photo, in fact I had to many pictures that I had to break out my flip flaps. If you look again at the 5 more days, if it looks like it is sticking up a bit, it is. I have 5 more pictures under that picture and it flips up to reveal the pictures. These are attached right to the page protector so you can see and use them even when they are in their page protectors. 

Products Used:

Paper: Sparkle and Shine (retired)
Ink: Ruby
Stamp: C1567 Santa Claus
Other: Flip Flaps

I hope you will join us in our Magical May scrapbook challenge over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges. Also, if you looking for a design team to join, we have an open call for the design team.

Thanks for stopping by!
