Chalk It Up Layouts

This month I am focusing on the Chalk It Up paper kit. It is one of the new 9 kits in Close to My Hearts new Annual Inspirations Idea Book. The photos I used are from our trip to Sedona Arizona and the surrounding area. One of the days we went to the Grand Canyon. I took a layout we were given at the annual Close to My Heart convention and changed it a bit. I used the Happy Birds (C1600) stamp set to not only stamp some flowers to cut out and embellish with but also stamped the flowers in Lagoon ink on the Lagoon CS. And used Glitter Gam (B1465) stamp set to stamp the sketchy heart in Black Ink on the upper left of the first layout and the lower right of the second layout. I slao stamped some of the heart in our New Glacier Ink, cut them out and adhered them with 3D tape. I also used some of our new Bling Gems Gold Assortment. Hope you enjoy these layouts.
