Love U!


I made this card using CTMH's Originals Cards How To Book, Ribbon Winner pattern, and Sweetheart level 2 paper pack (X7134B).  I got the instructions for the stamped/embossed background from Jeanette Lynton's blog and love the new technique she shared.  The roses are cut and wrapped from cardstock, accented with Glitz Glitter Gel (Z1313) and have Opaque Pearls (Z1336) in the center.  The stamp sets are:  Amore (D1445), Wings (B1376), Simple Memories (D1472), and Unity (C1422).  I am really please with my finished product.  Do you ever use our card How To Books?  Let me know what you've made with these books!

So Ready For Spring

I had so much fun making this wall hanging with CTMH's My Creations Mix and Mingle Album (Z1334)! The Mayberry level 2 paper pack (X7136B) featuring the vibrant colors of honey, olive and smoothie had the perfect spring palate. I adhered the cardstock and B&T paper using Bonding Memories Glue (1512) and then stamped, embossed, and cut out images for embellishments. I used the following stamp sets: Sophia (B1379), In the month of March (C1404), In the month of April (C1405), In the month of May (C1415), and Mayberry (B1380). Finally, the adorable bunny was made from our new stampable, canvas buttons (Z1397). How do you like my project that got me ready for spring?

Check out Close To My Hearts New Canvas Buttons!!!



Girls these buttons are fantastic. I lost my voice for a week and was just getting it back when Gary shot this video so "bear" with my scruffy voice!

UPDATE: Ok girls - this is an update to my original post - I admit that I came home from a weekend scrapbook retreat sick with broncitis and had to get this video made for CTMH. I was worried about my hoarse voice and my husband's video skills but since I felt so bad, I was only giving this one shot. I had problems getting this into a format that I could post here and when I finally did, I had no time left. I had to go to work. When I listened to it and noticed that my dog, Storm, was howling in the background I just had to roll in the floor laughing and hoped that no one else would notice. I was wrong. All of my friends have texted, emailed and called me laughing up a "Storm". We did not notice when we were making the video that she was outside howling at a fire truck. So, watch the video, laugh with me and remember that our canvas button really are totally awesome!
