B&T and Blog Candy

Wow, it's been too long since I've posted anything! I've been busy since NSD on all kinds of projects, and trying to finish up some magazine submissions, so I can't post most of what I've been working on. I did complete a couple of layouts on NSD that I'd like to share, and have some blog candy to give away!

Close To My Heart has released their new products for Summer, including this awesome Cherry-O paper packet. All patterned papers from CTMH are called B&T Duos - double sided background & texture paper. The "front" side is full color, and the reverse is a monochromatic version of the same design. By simply flipping over the paper you can achieve a new look. Take it even further by adding different cardstock colors and different embellishments.

Here are the two layouts I completed with Cherry-O papers. First, using the traditional "front" side of the papers.

This layout uses the cardstock colors that come in the Cherry-O paper packet, as well as coordinating MyStickease and white brads. I did flip one piece of the red pattern paper to the blue side to coordinate with my title Stickease.

Next, using the monochromatic "back" side of the papers.
I added white and Hollyhock cardstocks, Hollyhock ribbon, pink & blue buttons, a Pretty Pin, and Chocolate Waxy Flax. I also stamped some coordinating sentiments from the stamp set that comes in the Workshop on the Go kit.

To celebrate National Scrapbook Month, I'm giving away 2 samplers from Close To My Heart.
Each sampler will include 8 sheets of B&T Duos, two from each new Summer paper pack, a Petite Perks clear stamp set, and a catalog & idea book. In order to enter, just visit my website and look around, then come back here and leave a comment telling me what your favorite paper pack and/or stamp set is. Be sure to leave me your email address in your comment if it isn't in your Blogger profile so I can contact you if you're the winner.

I'll choose the winner using random.org from all entries received by 11:59p.m. Central time this Friday, May 14th. Only one entry per person.

    Picking just ONE is SOOOO difficult! I think my fav is the Silhouette collection. I'm thinking about all the colorful pics I have from Marching Band, and these would make a beautiful background to those photos!
