Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop ~ Love Close to My Heart

Welcome to the Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop!! The Stampers with Attitude is the team lead by Kimberly Moss.  This month the Stampers with Attitude are going to be showcasing what we LOVE about Close to My Heart artwork.   If you are just hopping here from JEN PATRICK’S Bl0g  then you are in the right spot. The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants at the end of this blog.

Where do I even begin ….. There are so many things I love about Close to My Heart!!!  Lets see …. Paper, Stamps, Albums, Embellishments, friends, Art Philosophy, Artise, Artbooking, Artfully Sent, inks, colors….. you get the idea. I guess if I had to pick my top few things it would be:

1) the wonderful assortment of paper packs that are offered and the colors; as my true passion is for scrapbooking (although I really love all paper crafts).

2) the fun embellishment – whether it is ribbon, compliments, assortments, gems, I love them all but my go to embellishment is bling and shimmer trim.

3) the wonderful albums which are offered to hold all my memory keeping.

So let my share with you just some of the things I love about Close to My Heart with this layout I created using Heartstrings paper pack, shimmer trim and some hearts.

Now all I need is some photos from this years Valentine’s festivities, I don’t really have any plans yet but I will need to make sure I do something in order to use this layout 🙂
