A Special Day

Do you have special photos on your walls or tabletops and special scrapbook pages in your albums? Why not have both on display?

Close To My Heart has several products to help you make your scrapbook pages part of your home decor. Whether you use canvas, mini-albums or display trays, your beautiful artwork depicting those special moments in your life deserve to be prominently displayed.

One of my family's favourite activities is heading down to the marina on a summer evening and "feeding the sea gulls"--a.k.a. fishing. (We mainly seem to catch brown gobi's, which are illegal to throw back, so the sea gulls have a feast!)

To celebrate one particularly memorable evening, I chose to use the Display Tray instead of making a traditional scrapbook page. The result is a beautiful record of something we all enjoy that sits in our living room for everyone to see.
Tommy papers were the perfect match for the theme of this project. The Tommy Assortment, cork and chipboard shapes add lovely touches.

The stamp set from the Tommy Workshop on the Go Kit was used to embellish the cork and chipboard as well as a little bit of Liquid Glass.

The Pure Adventure and It's Your Day stamp sets were also used--CTMH stamps are great for mixing and matching!

A final touch was added by adding some Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon on the hangers.

Did you notice I turned the Display Tray on its side? My photos were more suited to a landscape orientation and I knew the tray would be displayed on a tabletop rather than on a wall, so I just rotated the tray!

There are lots of possibilities when it comes to decorating your home with CTMH. Browse the Idea Book for more examples using the Display Tray, Hinged Display Tray and canvas art. Better yet, follow me on Pinterest and Facebook for daily updates and inspiration!

Happy Scrapping!
