Taste of Summer Frame

The Close to My Heart Taste of Summer paper pack is only available until May 31, 2015. Today I decided to play with it, the coordinating stamp set to create this frame for my dining room. I also used the Cricut Artise cartridge to cut the bow and flowers.

Here is a close up of the flowers:

Taste of Summer Card

I am having so much fun playing with the Taste of Summer paper pack available through Close to My Heart though the end of May. Today I had the opportunity to play with my new Cameo Silhouette I got for Mother's Day and created this great card using the Taste of Summer paper and Adventure Assortment-Paper Fundamentals

Jackson Workshop on the Go

The Workshops on the Go offered by Close to My Heart are so versastile and such a great deal. Every WOTG includes a paper pack, extra cardstock, stamp set, 2 embellishment sets and directions. The Jackson WOTG includes great embellishments and a fabulous stamp set. My scrap group didn't care for all the hexagons so I designed this layout using the Cricut Artfully Sent cartridge and Cricut Craftroom. 

The second layout recommended in the WOTG comes from the Reflection How To Book:

For this layout I also used the Campfire Style stamp set to create the title and small stamping figures.

All of these supplies can be ordered here.

Blossom Layout and Card

The Blossom paper pack is one of the new paper packs in the Seasonal Expression 2. I have had fun creating with it.

So far, I have made this simple card using circles cut out at different sizes with the Art Philosophy cartridge. I also used some of the new Glacier Extra Thick Twine and the new stamp set Finding The Words.

The layout was created using the same circles along with Whisper cardstock. I also added some Oceanside Sequins and Glacier Extra Thick Twine.

CTMH Seaside Layout


The Seaside paper pack is one of my favorite as it is the most versatile paper pack. I have done some beach layouts all ready, but the paper was perfect for water park pictures too. I also added some of the new Boardwalk Washi Tape for some accents. I cut the large circle out using the Art Philosophy Cartridge.
