Twins Layout and Make It From Your Heart

With August drawing to a close, so are the August Specials from Close To My Heart. Be sure to check out my last post for a list of them so you don't miss out.

Today I thought I'd share another of my projects that was selected to be part of the new Make It From Your Heart publication. It's a layout of the our beautiful twin grand babies. The twins are actually here visiting us right now and it's hard to believe that over 7 months have passed since these newborn photos were taken. Street and Livvi are now chubby, full of personality, mobile (oh dear!) and so busy! Look at them at 6 months old:

The photo of the Twins layout I used for this post is pretty sad. Sorry! Before I turned all of the projects in to Close To My Heart I meant to  photograph them well for my records and it just didn't happen with this one. I am not sure how I let that slip.  Hopefully you can see well enough. You can also see this layout on page 17, using pattern #6, in Make It From Your Heart volume 1.  This awesome publication is only $7.95 and is filled to the brim with sixteen two-page layout patterns, two one-page layout patterns, and twelve card patterns...not to mention beautiful artwork.  It's a must have for sure!

I used a couple of different paper packs for this layout.  I used papers from the Avonlea Kit and from the Pear and Partridge Kit.  You may have noticed that I even used the "genealogy paper" from the Avonlea Kit as the bases for my pages. I love the subtle background on this paper. I also  used several different colors of cardstock:  Whisper (new color), Sorbet, Cocoa and Colonial White.  I used buttons from our Blue Button Collection and threaded them with Chocolate Waxy Flax.  I spelled the word 'twins' by using our Dimensional Elements Monograms. I sponged them with Cocoa Ink and then used my Colonial White Stamp Pad to stamp the music notes from the Universal Backgrounds Stamp Set on them.  I also sponged the edges of all of the papers on the layout with Cocoa Ink.

I recommend the new, very affordable Make it From Your Heart publication. It is filled with fresh new patterns for layouts and cards!

Oh so cute! I totally just used this page as inspiration when I made my project that I am going to share a little later today on my blog. Those twins are extra adorable!

I can't believe how they have grown! So crazy to think how time flies. My own youngin' is just crowning 10 months this weekend and I sympathize with the extra mobility! Beautiful to pair the Pear' with Avonlea. Love your ideas!
