Last day....

Today is the last day i will be a Close to my Heart consultant. I am sad, but i will be continuing to make blog my paper crafts for you and i am super excited that i will also bring in some fun paper crafting challenges and maybe a blog hop.

Also with this change i will be venturing out in to some other brands of paper and crafting products and you will see a lot more Copic projects, other tutorials, home decor, tips and links to other wonderfully made blogs for everything paper crafts. There are some wonderful projects and classes out there that are a must share. It's a Hoot!

Do you have a favorite blog? post them in the comments.

On to my project of the day! This is from the Make it from your heart blog, well my own take on it anyways. check out the post here

Close up of the fun cluster. The stamp set is a retired one from the WOTG Jubilee. The title stamp is from the Babycakes WOTG. Fun to mix old and new!

I love how this turned out, the colors are from my favorite CTMH paper pack Jubilee (retired) I have been using these colors and the paper pack to decorate my studio. I love making my own home decor and i plan on sharing it with you.

What inspires you?

Thanks for re joining and sticking with me for this change. You can find me here and on facebook See you next time and mix your old and new to keep it fresh!

I am having a card break with this Taste of Summer layout. I got the layout from another consultant Lisa Stenz, she gracefully made a workshop using the paper and coordinating stamp set and i just had to make this layout to show you.

I will hold 4- 3 x 6 photos and i just love the title, it was very creative!

Card Challenge #6

Hi!! Welcome back for card #6! 

With all the cards i have been making lately this is a cool fave! 

Do you remember the Sarita paper pack? I used it with the February's Stamp of the month. I have everyone since i started with CTMH and they are so much fun to use. Spend $50 to get it for $5 is an awesome deal! I take advantage of it monthly.

This card can really be used for any occasion. I love flowers and this just made my day! 

See you tomorrow for the last of this week!

Card challenge #5

Number 5 up and at em.

This is one of my most favorite stamp sets of ALL time, love love love this stamp and i could use it everywhere!! 

Opps, just realized this paper is from the taste of summer paper pack, cool! CTMH makes it so east to mix the old with the new. This is an older stamp called Trees and Things. I used foam tape to pop up the tree top and added some embellishments. Simple card with a punch! 

So long until morrow!

Card Challenge #4

On to another card from the current Seasonal Expressions! Remember this is my last month with CTMH you can still shop from my site until the end of the month, Links are to the right.

I used up left overs from the Jackson WOTG to make the boy's card today. I really need to make more boy cards. I just can not seem to get away from the bright colors though..

Yes i used embellishments!! I have missed you.

 I inked the edges ( a lost art?) and layered it with coordinating colors except the pop of blue. I love how it turned out.

Hugs from me to you and see you tomorrow!!

Card Challenge #2

Welcome back for another card!

This warm card is another from the Taste of Summer we all got last month, did you pick one up? If you did send me a link of your projects...I LOVE eye candy!!

Yes you are..Berry Special!!! I added the lagoon paper for a punch. Again this card had so much going on that i felt i did not need to add any embellishments. I honestly took like 10 mins to make this card, from planning to finishing it up...fast, easy and cute!

Card Challenge!

Hey ya all!!

I have set my self up for a challenge that will allow me to use my older stamps and paper packs i have kept from the last few years. From my favorites to not so favorites i will be showing a card a day for as long as i can :-)

I am sorry to say that this month will be my last month with CTMH for a while, i am deeply involved with photography and it is going quite well. I will still be using 90% CTMH and i will have a link to my mom's shopping site so you can still pick up supplies.

With that being said i am planning on some fun challenges for you all with colors, sketches and scraps. Stay tuned over the summer to see what i am doing around here.

On to the first card of this week!!

If you were around CTMH last month then you would have seen the very awesome paper pack and coordinating stamp set Taste of Summer.

Isn't it awesome! This will cheer up the most grumpy person when you hand them this card!! I use zero embellishments but i did use the stamping to add a touch of fun with the pear colored berries.

Thanks for stopping by and come back tomorrow for another card!
