Stella 18th Birthday!

I pulled out the Stella Paper pack that is NEW from Close to my heart. My daughter is turning 18!! How time flies. Before you know it she will be off to college. WOW!

I used the sketch from MOJO MONDAY (see the right button on blog) and a card Vicki Wizniuk has posted recently for the layout.

I used the CARD CHATTER Birthday stamp set for the sentiment. Used the CTMH cricut cartridge to cut out border, circle, scallop and the #18!! Love it!

And the lagoon buttons with waxy flax and lagoon ribbon from CTMH
finishes it off. I think she will like it!!

Footloose Star card

Making the most of all the new papers I have and had some "Footloose" sitting there on my workstation. Here I used a Clear card, Footloose paper and the "Under the sea" stamp set. This stamp set is so versatile! Sure it's great for beachy or summer days. BUT the cute images with the inspirational sayings make them so much more useful for any occasion!

I used the CTMH cricut cartridge to cut out the shape that the star is stamped on. Waterbrushed to color in star. And added some hemp and a wooden button and there you have it.

NEW Florentine Paper!!

I am lovin all the new Papers in the NEW Close to my heart Idea book. Here is a card I made using the "Florentine" paper pack and the "Remarkable Wreath" stamp set.

I used the MOJO Monday sketch to help me along with the layout of this card. You can visit them to the right of my blog! Great sketches!

I also used our NEW colonial white seam binding ribbon and used creme brule ink on it. It took the color very well as you see!! So many possibilities!!

Thanks for looking!!
