National Scrapbooking Month

It is that time of year to celebrate our hobby with National Scrapbooking Month!!!!   As expected Close to My Heart has come out with a great promotion to celebrate.  This month with any $50 qualifying purchase you can get the Free to Be Me paper pack for only $5 (retail value $11.95).  This great paper pack features 6 background and texture papers, 6 sheets of coordinating cardstock which features the tone on tone texture on one side and two sheets of velum.


I will be highlighting some projects using these papers through out the month.  I am starting with my the gift I gave to all the wonderful ladies who signed up for my crop this past weekend.

Treat topper - Free to be Me

I love the arrow paper and it coordinated so well with Juniper, Pear, Saddle, and Sunset cardstock.  Be sure to order you paper today!

Happy Crafting!




Sympathy Cards

It is always unfortunate to say you need to increase your supply of sympathy cards; well that has been the case lately.  I had seen a card designed by Jody Gustafson which I though would be perfect for a sympathy card. Here is my version.

Ariana Sympathy card ~

For this card I used the following products:

  • Ariana Paper
  • Crystal Blue cardstock
  • Stripe Embossing folder
  • Words of Comfort C1524
  • Black Ink
  • Artbooking Cartridge for the bows cut at one inch and 3/4 inch
  • Art Philosophy Cartridge for the butterflies
  • Buttons fro my stash

Happy Crafting!
