So I attempted to make reproduce the layout on the front cover of the CTMH spring/summer idea book. Here is the original layout made with Stella paper.
Here is how mine turned out using Pemberley. This is a layout I am making for a gathering this weekend. Let me know what you think. The flowers, flourishes and butterflies were all cut with the Art Philosophy Cartridge. Check out my specials tab above to see how you can get the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge absolutely FREE. Supplies needed: Pemberley Paper Pack (X7148B), Buttons Blue Assortment (Z1371), Just for you stamp set (B1398), Art Philosophy cricut cartridge (Z1686).
Here is my final layout using the Super Hero Paper Pack. I think it is my favorite. I got a chance to use the new My Reflections Complements Super Hero Rub On Sheets (X7152C). I love them. I used them on this layout for the title and reply. I felt a little out of the box not using orange paper for a trick or treat layout, but since their costumes were super heros, I went for it. Take a look at the embellishment of words, that was a zip strip cut apart. The inspiration for this layout came from fellow consultant Cheryl Cuddie.
This final super hero layout was inspired by a layout I saw on pinterest. This one was very simple, but adorable. I used the cricut art philosophy cartridge to make all the stars that highlight this page. Some of the stars are popped with foam tape for added dimension. So if you were a skeptic like me wondering how many layouts, you could really get from a super hero paper pack, now you know. And I am not even done yet.
I love this layout. My favorite part about it is the title. I used the cricut art philosophy cartridge for "dirtball." There is no shadow for the font, so I usually just cut the letters twice at the same height and then offset them a little. This time I decided to cut the darker set 1/4 inch larger. Then when I offset it, it really looks like a shadow. Supplies for this layout are: Super Hero Paper Pack, Outdoor Denim cardstock, milepost shapes, large brads, baker's twine, and cricut art philosophy cartridge.
Here is another layout using the super hero paper pack. This layout describes Graycen (8 months old) in this photo and how he is all boy. Because he has older brothers he never played with baby toys. Once again to recreate this look, I simply used the superhero paper pack, outdoor denim cardstock, corner rounder to make the scalloped edge, and the cricut art philosophy cartridge.

I just wanted to take a moment to apologize for not posting in a while. We were out of town and got back to a house for of sick little boys. Now back to business!
I have decided to highlight the versatility of the Super Hero Paper Pack. Each day this week, I will show you different layouts using the same paper in different ways. So especially if you have boys, this paper pack is for you.
Here is your supply list to recreate this layout: Super Hero Paper Pack (X7152B), Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (Z1686), and Super Powers Stamp set (C1485). If you are looking for some background about the photos in this layout. My sweet first born is dislocatable. He was playing football with his dad and he tried to twist away from a block while daddy still had a hold of his arm and his elbow came out of socket. It's called Nurse's elbow. It has happened 2 other times while he was playing and praying and we learned how to put it in ourselves. Oh the adventures of parenthood. Popping bones back into socket was never in my life plan. I would love to hear some things you have done as a parent that you never thought you would have to do.
