#12 CTMH Layout Series (Gather)

 Hi, everyone!

(please note: this kit is no longer available)

We are continuing on in my Close To My Heart (CTMH) scrapbook layout series from a kit I purchased a few years ago. I'm just now getting around to using it. It was designed to have a cover layout, and then 12 more layouts representing the cover of a wall calendar with an additional layout for each month. (My layouts will be used in my scrapbook instead.) I used products in the kit, but on some pages I added a little extra this & that from my stash.  I hope you'll enjoy these as much as I enjoyed making them.

Another fun, colorful page!

(Completely off topic - I love the way our daughter, Keri, name each of her four boys using letters from her name: Kevin, Erik, Luke, and Clark... but I digress....)

These layouts from the Cut Above kit are so simple to put together. I love that everything in the kit is pre-cut and measured. All you have to do is adhere the pieces to the page. They have written instructions as well as a layout photo with measurements of how far down and over to place the mats / photos / embellishments. I admit though, I just eyeball it. I mean really... are you going to come over and look at my scrapbook and then tell me something isn't centered? It would be the last time you looked at it. I don't need that kind of negativity in my life. hahahahahahaha

Thanks for visiting! I have just ONE MORE layout to share with you on Wednesday made from this one kit. This has been a really fun series. I hope you have enjoyed my photos, layouts, and silliness during all of these posts. I've got another idea up my sleeve for the rest of this month. 

See you tomorrow!
