Art Philosophy Bag

Image
What better way wish someone a great day than a handmade bag holding the goodies. This bag cut at 4 1/2" is the perfect size to hold chocolate!




I used Pemberly for the bag itself and decorated the bag with the butterfly from the It's Your Day stamp set, available this month for only $5 with any $35 purchase until September 30th. Visit my website to order yours today.

I also used the stamp set and banner cut from the Circut Artise cartridge to give it the right sentiment.

If you have been wanting either one of the Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridges order through me now and I will throw in the It's Your Day stamp for FREE.

Avonlea Card

Another simple yet great card using the new Avonlea paper.



I also used the Fall Harvest (C1504) stamp set, Cocoa Ink and Colonial White cardstock as the card base.

Scholastic Workshop on the Go

Image
I am really enjoying Close to My Heart's Worskhops on the Go. It is so nice because you have paper, embellishments and a coordinating stamp set all for one low price. This month I am hosting scrapbooking on Thursday August 16th and we are completing the Scholastic Workshop on the Go. I have added 4 pieces of additional cardstock and we are creating 4 two page layouts. What better way to be prepared for the start of the school. If you are in the Spokane area I had 2 cancellations and have 2 extra kits if you want to join us from 6-9. The cost is $38.

Here are the completed layouts:





If you cannot make the workshop but would like to order the kit, you can order it directly here.

Dakota Layout

I have had so much fun playing with all the new Close to My Heart paper packs the past few weeks. Even the kits that are not my favorite have enough paper in each kit to create beautiful layouts.

I used the Dakota paper pack, a stamp set that came in the Rock the Block special last year,  black ink and a design from the new Make it From the Heart publication by Close to My Heart.

If you know me well you know that Fall is my favorite time of year. The food, smells, decorations, sights..... I LOVE everything about Fall and I love the new Moonlight paper from Close to My Heart. This captures all the colors of fall.

I have had time to play with the My Creations Star though and along with the Dakota paper pack and Pacifica Ink I created this star as a birthday gift.
