Team Brae-er No Worries Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Team Brae-er Blog Hop post for No Worries!  Thank you for coming to visit everyone along the way.  This is a circular hop - so just follow the links on each page to visit the next blog - and please leave us comments.  If you came from Michelle Hughes' blog - then you are headed in the right direction.  We love to hear your feedback.

I thought I loved the last two paper packs that I've been playing with - but after the projects that I have already made with No Worries - I'm going to have to get another set!  I didn't have any tropical vacation pics to scrap - although I've decided to remedy that lol... However, I did have some fun camping pictures needing attention.  No Worries is my favourite from this Seasonal Expressions 2 collection, basically because it is totally my style and colours! I love the blues and greys and browns and the casual beachy feel. 

I started this month the way that I usually do - with the Workshop Your Way Kit.  I made the three layouts from that kit - although I did change up the way that I used some of the papers, so that I had more leftovers.  Then, I grabbed some cardstock from the coordinating cardstock pack and got to work.  When I need quick inspiration - I always grab one of Jeanette Lynton's pattern books - so today I grabbed Cherish.  If you don't have the whole collection of pattern books - now is the time to grab them, because they are on the discontinued list - leaving us on July 31st. 

This first pattern is Visual Texture.  I played with some old school techniques, using the edge-distresser to rough up the edges of my photo mats and add texture to my pages.

The second pattern was Scenic Byway.  I used the Gold Shimmer pen blended with some Desert Sand re-inker to make the splatters. 

Here's what I think is really cool about my work today - I completed 5 layouts in just 4 hours!!  Close to My Heart really makes it quick and easy to save your memories in creative ways.  Let me show you how:)

I hope you enjoyed my post today.  Keep on hopping and see what Michelle Stewart has made at her blog.

Until we scrap again,



  1. Super layouts, looks like some great outdoor fun was had before these layouts were created. Love the splatter using the gold shimmer.

  2. Beautiful layouts! I especially like the one with the navy stripes!

  3. love these layouts! The splatter technique is one I forget with layouts!

  4. Haha! I almost abandoned the layout with the splatter, because it looked a bit like a glitter pen massacre had happened at first... but by the time I covered some of it up with the photos, it was OK. Sort of a happy accident 😉

  5. However, you may be quite unsure when is the best time to have your junk removed. It is really not a good idea to call a garbage removal company when you have too little junk, but you should also bear in mind that an increase in the amount of junk will cost you higher removal fees.
