Add More Photos to Central Park Scrapbook Workshop Your Way Layout + Process Video

Hello, and welcome to another Blog Hops with Heart Blog hop! We took a summer break for the last several months but a few of us are back with some great projects for you. You may have come from Lalia's blog, but if not, don't worry, you'll circle back to her in just a couple of hops! (Be sure you don't miss it, I love her work!) I am also linking up to the Color My Heart Color Dare...more on that in a bit.

Here's a peek at mine (keep scrolling for the rest + a process video):

Our theme this month is "Retiring Soon." Close to my Heart's current Idea Book (Seasonal Expressions 2 / SE2) will be retiring at the end of August, so we wanted to highlight some of the awesome products that are in it before they are gone.

(This means the new Idea Book will be coming on Sept. 1, and you are going to LOVE IT!)

Today I am featuring the Central Park Workshop Your Way Scrapbook Kit:

Yesterday I shared a video walkthrough of this kit to show you all that it includes. I love the bright colors and the summery theme. Although this kit is so versatile, it will work for much more than summer-themed layouts, cards, and other projects. These colors are so happy, I'll be using them all year round.

Today I am sharing a process video to show you how I put one of the layouts together from this kit. The instructions include 3 layouts plus you'll have extra supplies left over for more projects! You can also use the guide for other paper packs, not just this one! Just switch out the papers and viola, this guide does double, triple, or even quadruple duty! Don't limit the guides from the workshop kits to just one paper pack - there are so many possibilities.

Below is my process video (or view on YouTube). If you like my video please be sure to SUBSCRIBE to my channel! Then keep scrolling for more photos below...

Here's my full layout, followed by some detail shots. These bright colors and the summery complements stickers were perfect for the beach photos.

I just love this photo of my mom with my kids. They adore their Gramma and we all had such a blast at the beach. As I mentioned in the video, my parents have a 2nd home on the Oregon coast, in Gleneden Beach near Lincoln City, and we live 2 hours away in Eugene. We love it when they come up to this house for the summer (and throughout the year) so we can have some fun Gramma and Grampa time. Their permanent residence is in Carlsbad (San Diego), CA, but they pretty much split their time now. 

Here are some close-ups again.

Thanks for visiting today!

Next up on the hop is Katy. (Katy was a presenter at our CTMH Convention last month and let me tell you, this girl is crazy talented.) Enjoy!

If you'd like to play along with the Color Dare, it's a tic tac toe challenge using the colors from this Central Park paper pack. You can use 3 colors in a row/column/diagonal, or all of them like I did. See details here.
