CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Purposeful Patterns


Hello & welcome back to DanYellScraps! 
So today, is a special treat, because it is the monthly Technique Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Michelle Loncar's blog  , then you are on the right track! If you are just joining in now, this hop is focusing on Close to My Heart's make it from the heart pattern books. 

A little bit about the Make It From Your Heart Volume 3 pattern book; It fits inside our Everyday Life™ albums for easy and convenient transportation (sold separate). Includes 36 two-page layout patterns for standard photo sizes, as well as artwork inspiration demonstrating how to incorporate additional photos using our Pocket Plus™ and pocket scrapbooking Memory Protectors™. Layouts are organized by the number of photos they use. It arrives as loose, 3-ring hole-punched pages; 8⅜" × 6⅞".

Each of us has chosen a pattern to show case in either a layout or a card. 

My pattern is from Make It From Your Heart Vol 3,  pattern #9 


Check out the cute fish swimming by, and the adorable starfish floating around! Fussy cutting scraps of paper helps stretch your paper and your imagination, in this case helping me create the underwater scene I was looking for. Not to undermine the ombre title 'Mermaid Hair Don't Care'. Inked in Glacier and Lagoon. 



Adding gold pearl gems to the mermaids hair, and some doodling around the journaling areas helps accent and draw the eye in. 

My favorite aspect about the pattern books, besides the full cutting diagrams, are the two layout suggestions in full color photos, and finally an artwork tip! All of these helped me create my layout with ease and style. 

Get your pattern book today; and then head on over to Michelle Johns Blog My Flights Of Fancy.
