Close to my Heart Sample Kit Layout #1 ~ Legos!

Hello and Happy Monday! I hope you’re all having a great day!! I have a fun new kit and layout to share with you. If you know me a little bit, you might know that I love Close to my Heart!! It’s such a fun company and I love the quality of their products!

I have known my consultant for about a year now, I believe and I have really enjoyed working with her. She holds card workshops a few times a year and I have participated in them. It’s so nice to have someone else do all the work and I just have to put the card together! lol

Anyway, I asked her if maybe I could help her promote her business in exchange for products. She and I got together and made up this little kit for me to use.

Here’s a list of everything that was in my little sample kit:

  • Zoe Paper Pack: http://desiree.ctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=8559
  • Zoe Compliments: http://desiree.ctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=8567
  • Teal Shimmer Trim: http://desiree.ctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=7662
  • Grey Enamel Gems: http://desiree.ctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=8595
  • Memory Protector Flip Flaps Small Assortment: http://desiree.ctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=6741
  • Picture my Life collections: http://desiree.ctmh.com/Retail/Products.aspx?CatalogID=26
  • Chalk Marker: http://desiree.ctmh.com/Retail/Product.aspx?ItemID=6761

I made my first layout over National Scrapbook Day/Weekend. I used this sketch from the Victoria Marie online crop challenge.


This is my take on the sketch, I tweaked it a bit and really like how it turned out.


I really LOVE the colors and patterns of the papers that are in this Zoe collection! I also love that you can buy the compliments collection and it comes with one sticker sheet, a cardstock sheet and little ephemera pieces.


For the title I used a retired alpha set that is one of my FAVORITES! It’s called Polka Dot Alphabet. It fit perfectly right next to the top photo and I love how it looks! I used some cute little stickers from the sheet to embellish around the title, too.


I love the colors of this paper collection! I am very tempted to buy more of it!


These photos of my oldest playing legos with his cousin are some of the cutest ones I took during our time together. I really love how into the legos they are and you can tell they just don’t notice me taking their photos. Boys are so much fun!


I added a small embellishment cluster area next to the bottom photo as well as a Dear Lizzy Rotary Phrase stamp and that completes the layout!

You can watch my process video below:

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you’ll enjoy seeing what I make with these fun products from Close to my Heart! My goal is to complete at least 2 projects a month with the kits she gives me. I will be back next week with another layout using this kit! I can’t wait to share it with you!
