Close to my heart has 8 wonderful How-to Books for both Scrapbooking and also cardmaking. This month we are focusing on scrapbooking. I love these books for scrapbooking especially if i am stumped, this is what i turn to when I am faced with scrap-block.

For my layouts I decided to use Cherish - Echoes

located on pages 40 & 41, I did decide to rotate the pages so that it worked with my photos.

I also used the "Taste of Summer" Paper Pack which is only available in the Month of May for National Scrapbook Month.

This is a fairly simple layout, that I might decide to add some more Disney embellishments to later.

I added Liquid Glass to my title to give it a bit of shine and pop!

I added my hidden Mickey by colouring some pearls with my black Shin Han Marker and some washi tape tags

other Products I used are:
  • Cherish - How to Book - 9038
  • Framework Alphabet - E1027
  • True to Life stam set - C1575
  • Shin Han Markers (vivid green, black, lavender, marigold)
  • Carnival Washi Tape - Z3067
  • Taste of Summer Paper Pack - CC1038
  • Black Stars from the Scaredy Cat Assortment - Z3011
  • Liquid Glass - Z679
