Cruisin' Layout

These pics I had from a few years ago that I had not scrapped yet. I was so tickled to see the Close to my heart CRUISIN' paper pack fits it! These pics are from my sons Pinewood Derby Race when he was a cub scout. He now is a Boy scout at 2nd class and just one more step to his 1st class! Sorry I had to brag there for a minute! I actually bought the Workshop on the Go Cruisin' pack that has a cute stamp set and Bottle caps. I "tweeked" the actual WOTG sketch to fit my pics. I also added CTMH new Studs to each journal spot.
Thanks for looking!

Dotty for you! Thinking of you card

Playing with the Dotty Paper special a bit more! Needed to make a Thinking of you card for a friend who loves butterflies. This paper pack has this gorgeous butterfly paper that MATCHES the CTMH cricut cartridge butterfly!! How cool is that? I used one of the stamp sets that comes with the cricut cartridge for the scallop image and used the cricut to cut out the scallop. Then since the sentiment on that stamp said CONGRATS I cut out a circle and placed on top of the scallop image in center and stamped my own sentiment. Seam binding ribbon used as well. I laced waxy flax in my cut out butterfly to match the paper. Thanks for stopping by!!

Crusin Happy Father's day card

Well I did a Two for One Challenge Deal in this one Card!

MOJO Monday had a sketch that I followed for the Five layers of B & T papers in this Happy Fathers Day card. But I also love Heart to heart's challenges as well. So I used their sketch as well and "flipped It" for placement of my image and embellishments.

Both of these blogs are on my right side of my blog. Take a peek!!

I used the NEW paper pack from Close to Heart "Crusin" and it has a great paper that has letters that I used to make the sentiment Happy Fathers Day. The stamp set is from the WOTG for Crusin paper pack. Hemp added as well. Thanks for looking!!

Heart 2 Heart Challenge- Spring Card

Hey Scrappers and Stampers! I took the Heart to heart challenge (see on right side bar to link) and made a springy Easter Card. Using Close to my heart products!

Ribbon and sparkles from Close to my heart. Did you know you can "color" any clear sparkles with a sharpie marker to make them a differnt color? Amazing! The butterflies are a die from Stampin up and were the perfect size for this card. Thanks for stopping by!
