Stargazer Blog Hop

Image
Hi and welcome to our monthly blog hop. This month we are featuring our Stargazer collection of papers, stamps, and embellishments. If you are coming my way from the blog hop lineup, you should have come from Brittany Allred blog.

For my project today I made a two page layout and two birthday cards. For my layout, my inspiration was from our "Make It From Your Heart" volume three, Pattern two on page nine.







For my cards I created both of them with a pocket to hold cash or a gift card. I really loved using both our Stargazer Cardmaking stamps and Thin Cut coordinating dies and our Stargazer Stampbooking stamps to create these cards. I have already sketched some designs to use this paper collection for my 4th of July layouts. Perfect colors!

"Make Waves" Close To My Heart February Blog Hop

Image
Hi and thank you for stopping by my blog. Today we have seven ladies participating in our "Make Waves" blog hop. We are a small group of Close To My Heart consultants that challenge ourselves and motivate each other by creating projects showcasing one of our paper collections each month. If all of our links are working correctly, you should have come from Kathleen Androlewicz's blog. Today we are using our "Make Waves" papers.  This is a bright, colorful, and fun beach and mermaid themed collection of card making stamps, scrapbooking stamps, coordinating thin-cut dies, designer papers, Sequins & Gems, Complements, and Shimmer Trim. I made two projects this month. My first project is a side fold A2 card. The black and white striped paper is from our "Cats & Bats" Halloween collection.




My second project is a 12" x 12" scrapbook layout. I used stamps in the "Scrapbooking" stamp set to create my own background paper. I love fu…

Just For Fun!

True Story! lol
She learned to stamp on Monday
her embossing was quite fine.
She forgot to set out dinner....
so away out we went to dine. She brayered backgrounds Tuesday
she says they are a must....
they really are quite lovely
but there was no time to dust. On Wednesday it was birthday cards
she claims that chalking's fun
shading, blending and water-colouring
but the laundry wasn't done. Her card swap was on Thursday
she had to use green, blue and red,
it was obvious she was really engrossed
when she failed to make the bed. It was Shaker cards on Friday
using techniques that she just adores,
what a pity she then failed to notice
the crumbs dropped all over the floors. I found a maid on Saturday!
My week is now complete
my wife can stamp her hours away
and the house will still be neat. Well, already it is Sunday
and my forehead's feeling damp
cos I've cursed, and raved and ranted
for the Maid has learned to stamp!!

Close To My Heart Stargazer

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! Tomorrow.....today is a new day! Time to wipe the 2017 slab clean and start fresh in 2018. I have been crafting tonight waiting on midnight so I could kiss my sweet husband Happy New Years and then go to bed. But he went to bed early tonight so I got out our new Seasonal Expressions and starting creating. FYI; Did you know this idea book is just $1.00 and available for purchase on mywebsite? For my layout, I used our fabulous newMake It From Your Heart Volume 3. It is eighty-two pages showcasing thirty-six two page layouts and yummy scrapbook page templates to get your mo-jo juices flowing. For my layout I used the template found on page eight and our newStargazer Paper PacketandStargazer Complements. I don't think I have ever completed a two page layout so quick.  The Canary 4"x 6" mat on the left will be my journaling area once I decide on which pictures I will use of my beautiful Grandson! All of the paper measurements and placements are shown…
