ABC Blog Hop - C

Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!  For this hop we will be featuring the letter B. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as her B element will be featured in her post. If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy

Isn't this an adorable stamp of a cupcake from the Cutie Pie set? Maybe you think C is for cupcake OR Cutie Pie. BUT my C today is actually for Copycat!! Close To My Heart puts together fantastic catalogs full of beautiful products BUT not only that. You can see examples of some great things you can do with the products. I'm not ashamed to lift every idea that I can. Here's my interpretation on one of the layouts in the book. Of course I changed several items. That usually happens when I'm not as skilled as the original designer or I don't have something shown in the picture. In the case of the layout you see below I really wanted to use some of my older paper and products. It's so awesome how current CTMH products can mix it up with older things. That's a fantastic thing about having a large collection. Everything always seems to go together.

Here's the layout ..

Here's a closer look at the title ...

  1. Love this stamp set. Great layout ~ lots of elements on it!

  2. Adorable layout! I love that you used a copycat layout! e all need to do that more often, it takes some of the stress out of scrapping and gets me to try new things!

  3. I love you layout. Voting it's better than the original. I especially like the changes using the zipper, and using the distressed - roughed up white edge.

  4. Great layout! I am right with you in that I love to be a copycat!!

  5. Love that CTMH catalog too for ideas and samples to copy! Love your layout! Thank you for sharing!
