Merry Christmas @ CMOG with Close to My Heart

These days most of the photos are taken on a cell phone. I love my big black camera for taking photos of layouts, but I certainly wouldn't be lugging it around with me at a museum if I could just use my cell. So, here's my tip for you. Mine your cell phone for your photos once in a while and you just might find you have a few special ones you forgot to make into a scrap layout!

The mining of my phone resulted in me figuring out that I had a enough cool photos from visiting the Corning Musuem of Glass open house that I could make a nice little layout. I opted to make a photo mosaic so I could use the cool photo of the glass flameworked mouse (it's standing on it's head) and the second photo I had of the flameworker. Of course Lexi knew her, so it's a nice memory. As the page was pretty plain, even with that big 5 by 7 mosaic, I cut up a bunch of scraps to use under the photo give it a base. I was super pleased getting rid of a bunch of little pieces too!

On that same note, left over stickers usually have odd combinations so it was pretty easy for me to find ones to augment my glitter title and spell out CMOG. Really loving this paper too, it's from Close to My Heart. I had some left over and decided to make my first Christmas card.

Used up a few more scraps on this and that awesome poinsettia! LOVE it!

Well, that's a wrap for me. All my Christmas pages are done! It's a good thing too, as we're heading into spring!


  1. Wow! Great job Mitra! I love how every little scrap means so much to you!

  2. Beautiful layout and card! I know I have tons on my phone I need to get out of there and at least uploaded to print... I better do that before my phone dies...lol... ugh.. love these and yay for you getting a Christmas card done! I still need to mail you something... maybe tomorrow I can get it together and ready for the p.o.


I LOVE comments. Come on. Leave me one. They make me smile!
