So Delightful!
basketandcrdsIf you have come here from my good friend Artsy Margi then you are on the right track! If you get lost along the way be sure to start at the beginning with Dana Kessler at Scraptabulous Designs!

In the meantime welcome, welcome to the the Simply Inspired Blog Hop! I hope you enjoy this hop and come away with a fun project that you are inspired to create! Maybe this is your first time seeing all the goodness in the brand new Seasonal Expressions mini catalog. (Remember, Close To My Hearts Annual Inspiration catalog is still full of yummy goodness in products and papers and ideas.) This mini catalog (and another one later in the year – Yikes!! such fun!) are for you to focus on a specific season or holiday!

cardsMy fun little bag and cards were made from the NEW Charlotte paper pack. It’s so pretty and so perfect. I love how the flowers and leaves are not the bright traditional colors of spring but softer and more ethereal. I made 5 cards using the brand new Picture My Life page that is included with the new paper pack! They are awesome designs for pocket scrapbooking or card making or planner geeks or scrapbooking. Just about everything!!

I created a little gift bag to put the cards and an envelopes into. I altered a pattern floating about the internet and adjusted the bottom and height to accommodate an 4.25″ x 5.5″  size card. I used the matching Charlotte compliments to create the cards and decorate the front of the bag. I watercolored and stamped the flowers from the set Springtime Wishes C1641.

And there you go! Hop on over to my sweet friend Krista! I’m sure she has something fun to share!

Love is in the air…

chant closseupHave you received your copy of the fantastic Seasonal Expressions I catalog yet?

It’s full of darling stamp sets and amazing paper – because that’s what we love – and that’s what Close To My Heart does so well. The BEST in the business.

The art work is inspiring and the new products are so cool!!

Today my featured card is highlighting the beautiful new paper pack Chantilly  7205B. I love that it’s not the traditional flowers and green leaves design. It’s soft and pretty and perfect for so many occasions. I’ve added Gold Puffies Z3203 and Sequins Z2012 and bitty sparkles!

The stamp set is called Springtime Wishes C1641 and the best part is that is has a matching thins cuts. Thats RIGHT matching thin cuts!!! AKA Die Cuts.

Love is definitely in the air.

reindeerI love creating a cute little gift for friends with the products I already have on hand! You too?

If you look close you can see that this reindeer is an upside down Christmas stocking! How adorable is that??!! Thanks Pinterest! and Thanks to my friend Bren Y. who made the first reindeer and then let me copy!

I used my Art Philosphy cricut cartridge to cut the reindeer (stocking) shape. The antlers are from the new Artistry cricut cartridge – it’s a snowflake! The little ear is from Art Philosphy ( shape 11 ) and a circle punch for the eyes and red glitter nose! The black harness is from the same shape key as the stocking. It’s the “cuff” of the stocking.

I had googly eyes from Walmart – such a dealio – and jingle bells from the dollar store. Red bakers twine – we all have that in our stash! right!?- and the best part is I used the little mini stapler to hold it all together! Added a candy cane and viola!

I hope you’re having fun making cards, baking cookies, and creating fun holiday memories! Be sure check out the amazing papers and stamp sets from the Holiday Expressions before the month is over! Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be gone!

My personal favorite item are the PML White Pines Scrapbooking Program cards. Z3176  Picture My Life or you can call it “quick and easy” pocket scrapbooking OR adorable cards OR you can use the cards on a traditional scrapbooking project OR a home decor item! You can see lots of different ideas with the hashtag PML or PictureMy Life. Don’t delay! Get yourself a Christmas gift that will make you smile for years to come.

I’d love to hear from you! Let me know what you’re creating this holiday season! I hope it’s delightful!
