Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Here’s a simple but elegant card I made using the negative piece left over after I cut out the word “Christmas” with a retired thin cut die from CTMH.  I was cutting a bunch of these out and looking at the pieces.  Just by adding some glitter paper under the negative image, it makes the word pop.

I stamped “Very Merry” above “Christmas”.  Emboss the base of the card with a snowflake embossing folder (or any one of your choice).  When putting the layers together, use 3D Foam Tape to up up the negative cut for dimensions.

This is a great way to use your scraps and create a fast, elegant card for Christmas.

December things to keep in mind:

  • Free Card Kit when you purchase the December SOM for $5.00 with a $50.00 purchase – Check it out.
  • Through The Year Calendar Kit.  Purchase yours with stamp set and get a free layout (If you got the SOM in November you will not need the stamp set and got this layout last month).  With the purchase of either kit, you’ll get the Studio Sus guides for her amazing workshop that creates 24 pages and 12 month title toppers!  Check it out. 
  • Join My Team in December and get a FREE Through the Year Calendar Kit ($75.00 with a total value over $250).  There are a few other freebies from me as well.  =)
  • Happy Mail Club: With online orders over $25.00 of product, you will receive workshop guides (see the FB Group for the album) and more.  Check it out.

Share a Smile – October Special!!

Operation Smile is a wonderful organization that gives not only smiles back to children and adults, but life.  By fixing clef lips and palettes, they transform their lives.  They can eat, drink, talk, and become socially acceptable in their communities where physical disability often bring ostracization from the community.   In addition to this super cute special, I’ll show you below, please remember to round up when you check out.  CTMH is matching all rounding up this month!!  Your cents go that much further.

 

With the purchase of every Punny Pals stamp set, Close To My Heart donates $7 USD of the proceeds to Operation Smile™, an organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children around the world. To bring these stamp images to life, we’ve made a coordinating set of Thin Cuts dies and an exclusive card kit! The card kit includes the dies, card bases, envelopes, paper, and step-by-step instructions for creating 32 cards, and it is available at a discounted price! Create these delightful cards and use them to share smiles all around!

The Share a Smile card kit can be yours for FREE when you become a Consultant in October or when you host a qualifying party.  I’d love to have you as a hostess (home gathering or online/catalog show) or as a fellow team member.  I’ve been with CTMH for 17+ years and honestly, I can’t image life without CTMH.  Some of my closest and longest lasting friendships have come from Conventions and other events.  I’m part of a strong team and lead one as well.  You can check out all the reasons to join us here.

 

 

Physical Cartridge Cricut® Collections to Retire – They are available while they last!!

Provo Craft has recently made the decision to discontinue production of physical Cricut® cartridges.  This means that all Cricut® Collections that include a physical cartridge are available while supplies last.  What that means to you is that NOW is the time to buy the ones that are available before they are gone.   What’s available:

You Are Here is easily marketed as a travel collection BUT You Are Here is literally wherever YOU are at any point in your life!! Growing a family, sports, travel, staycation, Girls Weekend, family reunions, outdoor escapades and hunting, spa retreats and holiday outings.  You name it, it’s in there.  Be sure to watch Cardz TV to see Mary make wonderful cards from what appears to be a scrapbooking cartridge!Wherever you’re at in your life today, tomorrow or yesterday…You Are Here has shapes and sentiments for every pit stop along the road of life! Click here to see the You Are Here Shapes and You Are Here Index and all the versatile images available!

Flower Market is so much fun!  It has anything and everything to do with flowers, featuring blooms and blossoms for every season of life…but that’s not all, it also includes containers, banners, critters and more to hold or complement all of the 3-D and layered flower images!!  This collection is extremely versatile and includes 2 background/texture stamps to add detail to your cut images,  a fabulous sentiment stamp set,  and a package of our Adventure cardstock! I love the sentiment stamp set because it’s done in two fonts for the sentiments, the “in-thing” for right now.  It’s also small, making it very easy to fit on banners and tags.  Check out the Flower Market Shape Index, Flower Market Images and Flower Market Handbook!

Artistry is a trendy addition to the Close to My Heart Cricut lineup and your craft stash! This collection includes shapes spanning a wide variety of themes, holidays, and seasons to add some visual spice to any project you create. Get back to basics with the unique font, banners, layered shapes, borders, backgrounds, and other fun icons you’ll find on this cartridge. All of the designs are a must for any crafter! Check out the Artistry Shape Index and Artistry Handbook today to see all the beautiful images available!

Artbooking is one of my favorites!  It’s all about scrapbooking and mini-albums and is crazy awesome goodness!! For the offline Cricut machines, you set your cricut at 11″ then cut everything for coordinating layouts with overlays, titles, photo mats, etc and it all cuts proportionally for a 12×12 page! For the Cricut Explore, you can drop completed layouts or select pieces to create your own layout.  It’s wonderful to be able to use Design Space to change things to make it what you need.  The mini-albums give you a “recommended” finished album size then tells you what size to set your dial, you cut all the pieces at the same size setting and have a complete proportionally cut mini-album to assemble. Each of the themes (Freedom, Friends, Fall, etc) have 28 elements per theme, allowing you to have endless creative combinations. Check out the Artbooking Shape Index, Artbooking Handbook and Artbooking Sample Projects today to see all the pre-designed layouts and mini-albums available!

Digital collections will remain available for all of these collections.

Thanks A Latte for Teachers!

Thanks A Latte for Teachers

There are people we can’t live without and teachers are one of those peeps.  For the end of the year gifts, I got this idea from my friend Erika, when she made our PTO gifts.  I added my own flair to it and created these gift bags for the teachers.  They are a wonderful combination of summer colors, stamps, and dies from Close to My Heart, Sugar Pea Designs, and STAMPlorations.  It also it into the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop.

I got several gift cards and Starbucks Frap cups.  I filled the cups with some left over Easter basket filling.

Then I put the gift cards into the cup with a straw after filling them out.

I put the cup into some cello bags with some chocolate and watermelon sours, because I wanted to tie in Summer.   I made the tags with a die from Tag o’ Coffee die set.   There is a sentiment square you can cut with the set that fits right into the tag.  Sweetness for ease.  “Thanks A Latte” comes from Stamplorations.  I used Sugar Pea Designs for the latte cup (both the stamps and matching dies).   All paper is from CTMH.  All of these companies are Super Sponsors for the bloghop!

To tie in Summer, I used a retired stamp set from CTMH for “You’re one in a melon” with the watermelon.  Used CTMH watercolor paper and the Raspberry Ink Pad to watercolor “Melon” in.  Used Black Liquid Pearl to create the seeds.  For the latte cup, I wanted to give the illusion of the darker espresso on the bottom of the cup, so I used the Cocoa Ink Pad and watercolor brush to do this.   Create the whipped cream using White Liquid Pearl.  Just before it’s dry, put the transparency lid (cut with the dies) on it to look like whipped cream smooshed in the lid.

The Good Times!

On a side note since the Summer Coffee Lover’s Bloghop goes til the end of the month, here’s another No Worries Layout!  I still have A LOT to show you!

Another great layout that you can make with the Studio Sus  No Worry Workshop Guide that you can get for free when you purchase $25.00 or more from my website!  I love having directions for my layouts.  The bases of the layouts are Cocoa Cardstock which is on sale right now for 25% off!!

Here is the left page.  The paper is this pack is making it the #1 seller for Close To My Heart so I’m predicting our supplies may not make it through August 31, 2017, when the Seasonal Expression is retired.  Here is the right page:

Here are some close ups of the clusters of embellishments from the No Worries Compliments and pieces of paper that are dove tailed to make pennants. The sequins are awesome with the wood grain pattern on them.

Everything about this layout is just “so perfect” as this kraft chipboard says.

Happy Father’s Days

 Happy Father’s Day

Here is a wonderful Father’s Day card using the Jack papers and the Jack Cardmaking stamp set and it’s blessed set of thin cut dies! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate not having to fussy cut and thin cuts are wonderful when you are making a card (I prefer the Cricut for mass production).

My card design and inspiration comes from the final Mojo Monday sketch, 500.  It’s so sad to see Mojo Monday end.  However, it’s another season for Julee.  We can say a fond farewell to her, be grateful for all the inspiration she’s provided us over the past years and wish her the best for her new chapter of life!

 

This bear is so stinking cute!  I love the little arms and different things you can put it in there.

Use a brown, or in this case, kraft paper, and you don’t have to color.  Sometimes, time is of the essence and solid cardstock or kraft paper rocks to make less work but still keep the completed card looking awesome.  Did I mention that you can get all cardstock AND kraft paper 25% off until June 30?

Several patterns from the Jack paper pack were used to create the different layers along with the burlap ribbon.

Colors used for stamping match the paper pack: Archival Black, Ruby, and Juniper.  Color in the coffee cup with a watercolor brush and the Chocolate Ink Pad.

Use the Black and White Dots and Liquid Glass to create shine on the coffee in the coffee cup as well as the eyes and nose of the bear.  Such a happy bear.  Love him.

Best Wishes

Best Wishes

Man, it’s hard to say good bye to people you work with when you like them!  It seems that summer times brings retirements and transfers (military moves).  The No Worries Cardmaking Stamp s one of my favorite stamp sets with the chair and umbrella with dies to match!

While one of the sentiments is about retirement, you can use it for transfers or promotions as well.  The beach scene can be used for any occasion.  Just grab a different sentiment to use.  This set and dies will stay in my collection for a few years.

The blue patterned paper with the ombre palms on it reminds me of the Tommy Bahama prints I’ve seen in my past life of living on Guam.  Use 3D Foam tape to pop up the chair and umbrella which brings dimension to the card.  You can get the directions for free from my website.  The sequins that go with the No Worries paper, are great with the wood print or pattern on the them.  They are neutral enough to use with other paper kits (like Jack) and projects so you’ll want to get a few extra to have you your stash.

Cardstock Carnival – Wahoo

THROUGH JUNE 30th: Buy any cardstock pack – single colors, combo packs, or coordinating cardstock packs from Seasonal Expressions 2 – and save 25%!!  This makes your single color cardstock as low as 45 cents per sheet!!  So check your supply and stock up on the colors.  I’ve never seen them do this and it’s exciting!

Happy Birthday Little Dreamer

Happy Birthday Little Dreamer

I’m working on using my scraps up and you know, I’m always have those sheets of cards left in the paper pack if I’m not doing pocket scrapbooking.  I used two of them to make this card and a card design I got from Unity Stamps.  The gold glitter paper and transparency are from my shaker card party.  =)

  • You will need to cut your card base from a larger piece of cardstock because the score/fold is on the 4.25″ side at the 5.5″.
  • Trim down one of the 4″x6″ cards to 4″x5.25″ and put the front of the card.
  • Then cut 1 1/2″ from the bottom of the card, set aside to use later, and leave 1 1/2″ from the top of the card.

 

  • Glue the transparency – cut to 4.25″ x 5.5″and glue under the top part of the card.
  • Glue the bottom 1 1/2″ piece that you saved and glue on the bottom of the transparency.
  • Take the striped card that’s 3″x4″ and put in the center of the card, over the transparency and overlapping the top and bottom of the card.   You’ll be able to see the transparency on the sides of the card.

  • Use two strips of gold glitter paper.
  • Stamp and cut out both the Unicorn and the banner.
  • Distress the banner with Thistle Ink.
  • Add googly eyes.

  • Stamp a unicorn on the inside of the card, underneath the panel so it does not show (unless you want it to).
  • Stamp a sentiment on the inside.
  • Add googly eye.
  • Use the Gold and Clear Shimmer Brushes on the unicorns (I did gold on the body and clear on the mane, tail, horn, and nose).

The Little Dream Paper is a great deal of fun.  The colors are lively and so wonderful to play with after this dreary, crazy spring we’ve been having. The Little Dreamer Cardmaking unicorn stamp set has these dies to match so no fussy cutting = LOVE!!  Same for the Little Dream Scrapbooking rainbow set.  These makes your life easier.

Always Be You – On Sale and Free Cutting File!

Always Be You – On Sale and FREE Cutting File!

My guest artist today is Linda B, another consultant on my team and participant in the 50 Card Swap.  She did an incredible job with this card and we are using it for our Come and Play Card Buffet.   Butterflies and ladybugs are always unique and different, just as people are.  We all have someone who needs a pick-me-up when times are tough.  Here’s the card for them.  Even a guy would like it.  =)

The stamp set used comes with die cuts. Thank goodness, right?  No fussy cutting!  Best of all, this month you can get this stamp set and dies for $17.95, 25% off!  You make the butterflies and ladybug different colors by stamping on the lighter ink pad color and adding the other colors by rolling the edges of the stamps on the ink pad.  Each one will turn out different, truly making each image and card unique.

The magnifying glass is cut from the Cricut using Basic Shapes of Design Space.  Use transparency sheets which you can pick up from Staples for the center of the magnifying glass.  Use Thin 3D Foam Tape to pop up the magnifying glass so that it’s over the butterfly and ladybugs.   Cut the jar with the Cricut Flower Market (exclusive to CTMH but you could win it this month with my Great Cricut Giveaway event) out of transparency and with the bug patterned paper.  Trim the bug paper to leave the top of the jar clear.  Cutting file at the end of the post.

Adhere the bug paper to the transparency using Liquid Glass.  Add the bow and use Liquid Glass to adhere it to the top of the transparency.  A little got will do.

Use silver our foil tape and the embellishments from the sequin pack to add the finishing touches to the card.  Simple with enough fun to make it special and unique.

You’re The Sweetest

You’re The Sweetest

I got this super cute card in my Seasonal Expression 1 swap.  Name was left off so I can’t give credit.  I just love it.  This doughnut stamp and die set plus the Sugar Rush can create so many amazing combinations.

I just love the colors in the paper.  The “sprinkle” paper from the Paper Pack was used to cut out the frosting and sprinkles for the doughnut. That sure saves time and makes the doughnut look great.  The rest of the paper patterns make great pennants.

Lately, I’ve been into white space on the cards and this is a good example of how you can take the white space and make it look fantastic.  Stamp the sentiment just above the pennants.  Use 3D Foam Tape (supplies below) used to give dimension.  Then add the wonderful new Sugar Rush Glitter dots to embellish and this equals sweet!

Thanks for stopping by my corner of the internet.  Have a sweetest day by spending time crafting!
