20 Card Workshop

Today's project was cards. I decorated 20 cards with 3 sheets of paper and some embellishments and stamps to use for thank you's. I used the More to Adore paper pack and chocolate ink.






I am going to be working on different designs and will also be doing a class if there is enough interest. Please let me know if you are and I will get a class on the schedule.

Easter Decoration

Spring is in the air. Walk into any store and you see bright colors, flowers and Easter goodies. This inspired me to finally break down and make this super cute 3D svg from Dreaming Tree called Easter Egg Umbrella. Made with just paper and glue, it is sturdy enough to give as a gift (which I plan on doing for goodie bags at my open house for my other business) or use for yourself as your decoration for the season. With different colors, you could also use it to give at a baby shower.

My project used all Close To My Heart papers that are discontinued but just in case you want to know, the paper pack is called Whoops-A-Daisy.

All Thin Cuts are On Sale

I am so ready to cut all this cold and snow out of the weather. Are you ready? Spring is right around the corner and I am celebrating with all of the thin cuts that are on sale at my Close To My Heart website.





Have you had an opportunity to use any of Close To My Heart’s Thin Cuts with your Paper Crafting projects yet? I have heard they are pretty nifty, in fact, I will be purchasing mine here soon as I really do not enjoy fussy cutting when I do not have to.

Thin Cuts are thin metal dies for cutting specific titles, sentiments, and a wide variety of shapes that match specific stamps set within the Close To My Heart line.  Each set of Thin Cuts are packaged on a magnetic sheet and work well with most die-cutting machines.

We have all sorts of Thin Cuts, so let us walk you through all the different options. First off, we have Thin Cuts that cut out shapes for cute paper accents on your artwork. We also have Thin Cuts that cut sentiments for your cards as well as for your scrapbook pages. There are many shapes to choose from, including basic hearts and circles. The exciting thing about these shapes is that they come in a set of four different sizes, giving you fun layering options and the ability to work with a variety of sizes. We have also designed some matching stamps for these heart and circle dies so you can turn these shapes into journaling spots or sentiments. To top it all off, we also have several Thin Cuts that coordinate with specific stamp sets. They are a great tool for cutting out your favorite stamped images so you don’t have to cut them out by hand! 

All Thin Cuts on Sale – 25% off during the month of March only!

Looking for the list of Thin Cuts on sale during the month of March?  Look no further…

Animal Kingdom Mural Scrapbook Page

One of the projects I completed today included using an 8 x 10 picture of my kids from 10 years ago.

I used the Powerful Trio left side layout from the CTMH Imagine book. (I love this book because it lists the cuts that you need to do on each piece of paper. I also used Bamboo, Chocolate and Silhouette B&T Duos (X7090B) from CTMH. Along with chocolate ink to accent the paper. Misc paper was used for the logo.

Tonight's project uses the Cut Above layout kit: Forever & Always (Item #Z3319). Of course, I need to reintegration more pictures as always.

Hey, hey, hey crafty friends. This past week has been a nightmare as mother nature has been bi-polar here in Northwest Ohio. This resulted in nice weather early last week and the then ice late in the week. But I did get some crafting done. Here are a couple of 2 page layouts that I will be using for door prizes during my launch party for my CTMH business and a the make and takes that attendees will be able to make.


The layouts are made with an old paperpack from CTMH but I just love the vivid colors. The cards are made with the new Sugar Rush paperpack and who doesn't love doughnuts or ice cream.

Masculine Card

On February 1st, I rejoined Close To My Heart. I needed a push to start crafting again and this was it.

While waiting on my kit to arrive, I pulled out some of my older stuff and got to work. In fact, I found some kits that I had already had cut to create cards and scrapbook pages. This card uses the Good Times paper pack and Endless Love stamp set.
