Veranda Birthday Card

This card also features the February Stamp of the Month and Veranda paper. There are a few embellishments, Z1131 Creme Brulee Ribbon and Z1266 Just Blooms Spring Blossoms Paper Flower, to make this card eye catching! This design came from one of the many talented consultant at Close To My Heart. Being a CTMH consultant is rewarding to me in so many ways. First and foremost are the people, the CTMH company people and the other consultants. I have made friendship that will last a lifetime. Next, the talent! I have learned so many techniques from the CTMH Training Academy, the CTMH Artwork Bulletin Board and attending Convention and Leadership Conference. If you want to have your own business and want to know which company to choose, I can assure you that you won't make a mistake with Close To My Heart. Email me and I can give you the details!

You're One of A Kind

I told you that Caboodle is really, really versitile! This card design also came from CTMH Spring Idea Book and uses Caboodle and One of A Kind (D1410) Stamp set. Our books truly are "Idea" books so if you don't have one, just email me and I'll get on one right away! I also used Z2166 Tulip Ink, Z2153 Sweet Leaf Ink, Z2117 Crystal Blue Ink, Z1119 Spring Blossom Mini Medleys and Z1131 Creme Brulee Ribbon Rounds. I usually am more of a scrapbooker than cardmaker, but with the Idea books and Card Confidence program, even card making is so easy peasy!

Paper Flower Tutorial

Several people had asked me about the paper flowers on the Veranda card and Veranda Wall Hangs so I made a video! I hope you enjoy it and it shows just how easy these beautiful flowers are to make. Let me know what you think!

Birthday Card for Gary's Mom

This card uses CTMH's Wishes Card Confidence Program Designer Tag pattern and as you all know by now, my favorite paper pack Veranda! This design was featured in our Spring Idea Book and I thought it was the perfect card for my Mother-In-Law's birthday. I also used C1397 Smiles stamp, Z2167 Creme Brulee Ink Pad, Z2120 Garden Green Ink Pad, Z2164 Sorbet Ink Pad and finally Timber Brown Stazon Ink. My MIL loved the card and I hope you do too. Let me know...
