CTMH December Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop..."Cutie Pie"

Welcome to another fabulous Close To My Heart Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop! If you came from Dana's Blog, then you're in the right place! If you got lost along the way, check out Melinda's Blog for a complete list of blog hop participants.

I made a one-page layout with a matching card for a little girl for her fourth birthday. I used Confetti Wishes Paper Packet with White Daisy and Glacier Cardstock. The images were stamped using Glacier Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad and Thistle Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. I used the format on page 20 from the Reflections Scrapbook Program for the layout, which was embellished with Sequins Gold Assortment, and White Enamel Stars. The card was embellished with Junebug Puffies.

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #120

Here's our Thanksgiving colors at Color My Heart Color Dare :-):

Our theme colors for this week can be found in the Pathfinding paper packet, which is what I also used for this project. I made a ribbon board using some SVG files from SVGCuts. I added cardstock in Chocolate, Kraft (they comprise the back of this project), Glacier and Olive, and some Pathfinding Complements as accent pieces for my ribbon board. All elements were inked using Cocoa Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. The brads are from my stash. I already have some of Kiko's pictures in mind to fill this up. :-D

Come join the fun at Color My Heart Color Dare!

Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge #119

Here are this week's color inspiration at Color My Heart Color Dare:

The color inspiration was reminiscent of the color palette for Ivy Lane, one of my all-time favorites from Close To My Heart. For this card, I used the stamps from the Skylark Workshop On The Go. The card base is Olive cardstock, and I punched the corners using a Martha Stewart corner punch. I added a couple of pieces of Hollyhock cardstock along the two corners. The fabric flower is from Ivy Lane Assortment(retired) and the flags are from Ivy Lane paper packet(retired). I used Exclusive Inks Stamp Pads in Olive, Hollyhock, and Smokey Plum for the whole card.

Now it's your turn to share your creations with us at Color My Heart Color Dare!

A Season of Thanks

Where did time go? We are celebrating an early Thanksgiving at My Sheri Crafts. There is so much to be grateful in life, despite life's challenges. I look back through the years and I feel blessed, surrounded by the people that I love.

I made a two-page layout using Pathfinding paper packet from Close To My Heart. The format is from Reflections Scrapbook Program. I added some Pathfinding Complements, and Sequins Gold Assortment for sparkle. The turkey was cut from the Artiste Cartridge using Scaredy Cat paper packet! at 2 1/2".

We would link to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving at My Sheri Crafts and hope you can join our challenge.

Color My Heart Color Dare #118

Here are our inspirational colors this week at Color My Heart Color Dare:

I have not made a flower pot card before, so I came up with my own version. I stamped some flowers using November's Stamp Of The Month "It's The Little Things" using Honey Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad on White Daisy Cardstock. I inked the edges of the flowers that I had fussy cut using Smoothie Exclusive Inks, and for the centers, I added some Smoothie-colored acrylic roses from Ivy Lane Assortment (retired). The "pollen" are faux pearls that I made using gold acrylic paint. The flower pot was cut freehand and scored using Chocolate cardstock. The leaves were also cut freehand from Olive cardstock and to add some variation, I also punched some olive twigs using a punch from Martha Stewart. I tied a jute string at the bottom of the flower pot to keep the card closed.

CTMH Artfully Sent Blog Hop

Welcome to another fabulous blog hop, this time featuring the newest Cricut cartridge from Close To My Heart, Artfully Sent.

If you came from Maria's Blog, then you're in the right place! Please visit Melinda's Blog for a complete list of blog participants.

The multiple envelopes and sleeve options that the newest cartridge has made it possible for me to make another mini album, this time with a Parisian summer theme. One could only wish for that season in a beautiful and romantic city when it's dreary and cold everywhere else, right? :-D

I used the neutral background and textures (B&T) paper from Yuletide Carol, and cardstock in Black and Champagne. I inked the edges of the Yuletide Carol paper and Champagne cardstock in Desert Sand. To add a touch of glam to the mini, I used Sequins Gold Assortment, Gold Shimmer Trim, Gold Polka-Dot Washi Tape, and Bling Gems Gold Assortment.

This accordion mini album was simply two 5"x7" cards taped together using the Gold Polka-Dot Washi Tape. What I love about this type of album is that you can keep on adding pages to it. :-)

Thank you so much for visiting! Your next stop would be Melissa's Blog.

November Stamp Of The Month...It's The Little Things

Here is November's Stamp of the month "It's The Little Things", and this can be yours for only $5.00 with every $50.00 purchase.

The images from the September Stamp Of The Month reminds me of the floral designs from the Brushed Paper Packet. Sure enough, I just had to make a two-page layout. The flowers were stamped on Pixie and Canary Cardstock using Exclusive Inks in Pixie, Canary and Goldrush. I added some 4"x6" picture frames in Pixie and 5"x7" in Hollyhock on the White Daisy layout base. The overlay is cut at 11" from the Artbooking Cartridge using Juniper Cardstock. The leaves are from the Art Philosophy Cartridge, cut at 1" and 1 1/2" using Sweet Leaf Cardstock, inked with Topiary Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. I added some Sequins Gold Assortment for sparkle.
