 Cute Scrapbook Paper for Layouts

Seriously this is how I roll now. Everything is included (to be creative) just add glue. It has the step by step instructions to create the scrapbook layouts and all the embellishments. Having a good a paper trimmer is a must, I love the Fiskars Paper Trimmer.


I feel like scrapbooking has taken a backseat to life and when I do have the time I feel like I get stuck in a rut. What I mean by that is I start creating pages that all look alike because I don’t have the needed time to plan, prepare, shop and create. That’s why the kits are perfect for busy moms.

The kit also made me scrap in a different direction, for summer memories I have a tendency to do fun in the sun and those typical summer titles. This kit helped me finish my “Summer Memories” in a breeze because family is all about love! Does your family like to take silly pictures? Mine does!

It gives you all the paper, embellishments, and instructions. The shimmer tape is awesome and I’m so in love with it! Creating those Pinterest worthy scrapbook layouts is now a piece of cake with Close to My Heart .

I was in my happy place as I made these because I was so happy with the outcome and felt like I was really scrapbooking again. Remember that busy mom thing- well I did this kit in two pieces. The first time I cut the pieces and did all the pictures and embellishments. Then the second piece was journalling and adding a few more embellishments to finish the pages.

Is this kit good for a Beginner?

The answer is Yes!!! This kit is perfect for a beginner. If you asking “What do I put in a scrapbook?” or “How do I start scrapbooking?” This kit will answer all of these questions and help you create beautiful, creative pages. Once you do a couple of these kits, you will have so many ideas for easy scrapbook layouts and will easily be able to create more pages.
