Charlotte is….

simply inspired





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″ ย 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!
