La Belle Vie

I am so excited about the NEW Close to my heart catalog!  Here is a circle card I made using one of the new Paper pack.  La Belle Vie.

Beautiful colors of pinks, grays and black.  Also used the Card Word Puzzle stamp set and added pearls and more dimensions to the flower by cutting "layers".  Love to do this with this flower stamp!  I inked the butterflies (Flutter butterfly shapes from CTMH)  in gray and added a pearl at the top of each  butterfly.  The Merci Beacoup is from the edge of the Patterned paper.   Thanks for stopping by and looking!!

H2H Color Challenge

This week at H2H we are doing a Color Challenge!!  

This week it's all about colour! We're challenging you to come up with a project that uses the Lagoon, Pear and Sunset colours from the Close To My Heart colour palette.
So I was more then happy to pull out my Footloose paper packet to work on some Summer pictures of  my son and his Friends at the beach and tubing.  

I stamped the title and cut it out.  Used lots of the Footloose Complements for embellishments.  
It all came together pretty easy with Close to my hearts papers and coordinating embellishments!!  
Are you inspired? We sure hope so. Now it's your turn!  Remember to use some CTMH products and Lagoon, Pear and Sunset as the colours in your creation and upload your project to your blog and share it with us at H2H !
Happy Stampin' and Scrappin'

H2H Dog days of Summer Challenge!

Here is my layout for this challenge this week over at H2H.  A good friend of mine recently lost one of his most beloved dogs. She was a Chinese Crested and her name was Josephine.  We kept her for him a few times when he went out of town.  And I was able to get some pictures of her that I am sharing with him. She was the sweetest thing and is really missed.  So in honor of her I made this for him. 

I used Close to my Hearts New Avonlea paper pack and the Beautiful Friendship stamp set. 

So Join us for  this weeks challenge over at H2H and be sure to post it to share~!

Happy Scrappin!

Clementine Coffee Holder

I love the colors in the new CTMH Clementine Papers!!  So pretty and so much the colors that I love most!!
Here is a cute little "coffee" holder.  I have made these before using tea bags but since Close to my heart has the cutest new coffee stamp set called  "Cup of cheer" I decided to put the coffee bag in it.
And I just love the images in this set  and it has a cute little saying as well with it.

1st Class Layout!

I am so VERY proud of my son Dominic!  He is 12 and a Boy scout.  In just a 6 month period he earned his 2nd and 1st Class ranks!!  These pictures are from his Troops Court of Honor where he was given his rank patches and I was "pinned".  Moms have a ribbon they wear and as the boys go up in rank we receive a pin as well.  He has many years to go in Boy Scouts but it really has helped him and taught him a lot already!! Both morals wise and becoming more self reliant!

The papers I used are from the Close to my Heart Victory line LOVE the browns and blues in this paper pack.  I also used the TRINITY alphabet stamp for the 1st and 2nd class lines.  I have a Wonderful friend RENEE!!  who was out shopping one day for scrappy stuff and found Boy Scouts embellishments made by K & C Company that are Perfect!!  

I also went on Boy Scouts of America and printed out the details on earning these ranks.  Great memories!

Today is the DAY!!!

Close to my hearts NEW Catalog is live and available to order from!!!  Woo Hoo! 

You can view the new Catalog here  NEW CATTY !!

 Close To My Heart is now offering another MUST HAVE exclusive Cricut Cartridge. Beginning today you will be able to order the new CTMH Artiste Cricut Collection on my CTMH website or through me via email

Just like the Art Philosophy Cartridge this one also can cut 700 images with just the touch of a button! The images are exclusive to Close To My Heart and tons of the shapes were designed to work with our Close To My Heart My Acrylix clear stamps. Another new feature added is the stamp sets now are marked with the page number of the shape in the handbook as well as the size to cut it at. Also one of my favorite things they added are the assembly instructions. Often times you flip through the handbook wondering what the box or 3D item would look like put together or even wonder how in the world do you put this together... well the new handbook gives you step by step instructions as to where to fold and where to glue. It's awesome!  The CTMH Artiste Cricut Collection comes with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge, 3 My Acrylix stamp sets that were designed to coordinate perfectly with the images on the Artiste Cartridge, plus you'll receive 3 sets of 9" x 12" Dimensional Elements (chipboard packs) that go with the cartridges too.   I will be sharing more artwork with this cartridge with you as I create! 

Here are some 3D ideas for crafts you can make with the new cartridge

Thanks for stopping by!! I will be updating you with NEW products from the Catty!! Stay tuned!!
